R.I.P.D.

After cop Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds) loses his life in a warehouse shootout, he is recruited by the Rest in Peace Department (R.I.P.D.) – a police force assembled from the spirits of the greatest cops that ever lived. Acting as an invisible guardian, to ensure that the dead stay dead, Nick must patrol and protect the world below from the ‘Deados,’ a destructive army of creatures who refuse to move peacefully to the afterlife.

Nick accepts the challenge and joins his new partner Roy Pulsipher (Jeff Bridges), a grouchy but skilful ex-U.S. Marshal from way back in the 1800s. As the job begins, the cops are assigned identity disguises, so that they can appear on earth as living humans. The results are hilarious, as Nick is transformed into a frail old Chinese man, whilst Roy is seen as a drop-dead gorgeous leggy blonde.
