The laugh-out-loud moments come with conspicuously less frequency during a third act that suggests a rough draft for “Bad Boys 3.”

Recalls the lightning-in-a-bottle chemistry of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the Lethal Weapon series.

From "Police Academy" to "Hot Fuzz," there are satires to be made about undisciplined law enforcement; this will not join their ranks, try as it might.

A wacky mismatched-buddy-cop movie pitched to the lowest common denominator.

Fails to mine the potentially humorous premise for the necessary laughs, with nearly all of the gags falling thuddingly flat.

Some nice comic beats and a sinister Andy Garcia turn make this far more watchable that the fratty conceit might suggest.

funny, a bit nasty but it's a movie that raised a few laughs. I wanted the good guys to win. Easy watch.

It's great to see a good solid buddy comedy back on our screens with two relative unknowns (outside of TV's New Girl) bringing consistent laugh out loud moments with them. Highly recommended
