Kopps (2003)

Description[from Freebase]

Kopps is a 2003 Swedish film directed by Josef Fares. The name itself is a pun on pronouncing the English word "Cops" with a Swedish accent. The film is a comedy about Swedish police, starring Fares Fares, Torkel Petersson, Sissela Kyle, Göran Ragnerstam and Eva Röse. The film concerns the police force of a small fictional Swedish village, Högboträsk. The village is so peaceful that crime has become nonexistent. The police spend their shifts drinking coffee, eating hot dogs and chasing down runaway cows. This is all well and good for the village's own police, but the police management board wants to discontinue the local police force for lack of crime. This would mean the loss of income for the policemen, so they begin to stage crimes in order to preserve their jobs. This includes burning down the local hotdog stand, hiring a drunk to steal a packet of sausages, thrashing a local car, faking a shootout and staging a kidnapping using their friends as actors. Shortly after Kopps' release in 2003, Adam Sandler and Columbia Pictures bought the rights and announced their plans to remake the comedy into an English-language release, though the status is currently unknown.
