I don’t care what anyone says. I love New Girl, and I look forward to it more than any other weekly comedy. While Zooey Deschanel is perfectly spritely in her own right, she’s aided by a fantastic supporting cast which includes Jake Johnson and this season, Damon Wayans Jr.
Now, someone in Hollywood finally watched these two and realized they’re hilarious. As such, they’ve been given their own starring vehicle, “Let’s Be Cops.” Normally we wait until Friday to post trailers, but I really couldn’t help myself. I watched this three times and laughed just as hard with each repeat viewing. Johnson and Wayans Jr. realize that simply wearing a cop uniform makes you treated way differently (after they leave a costume party) and they decide to see how far they can run with the concept.
The red band trailer is amazingly cut and scored, and this might be the most well-done comedy trailer since 21 Jump Street (a similar concept) or Pineapple Express (ultimately not a great movie). Glad to see these two getting their comedy due like how Hollywood magically realized Charlie Day is hilarious recently.
