Coffee & Kareem looks like it has comedy breakout potential. Coming to Netflix next week, it stars Ed Helms and Taraji P. Henson as a couple, and her son doesn't exactly approve of their dating. Helms is a cop, and when her son gets them into a pickle with Detroit's underbelly, they go on the run and naturally hilarity ensues. Raunchy hilarity, this is some 90's/2000's style buddy comedy stuff here.
Check out the trailer, poster, and synopsis for Coffee & Kareem (get it?) down below:

An action comedy directed by Michael Dowse (Stuber, Goon), starring Ed Helms and Taraji P. Henson, and co-starring Betty Gilpin, RonReaco Lee, Andrew Bachelor (King Bach) and David Alan Grier.

They also did some tribute posters spoofing classic action buddy films and they are awesome.
