Protecting the Earth from the scum of the other side.
Ever wonder what happens to movie cops after they die? Well, if they're played by Ryan Reynolds, they're immediately recruited into the "R.I.P.D." (Rest In Peace Department), a post-mortem law enforcement organization that keeps all of the unruly dead folk out there in line. And oh, there are a lot of unruly dead folk — our world is crawling with them, actually, and luckily we've got these "guardian angels" to protect us.
It's a tough job, and Ryan Reynolds can't do it alone, so he's partnered up with Jeff Bridges, who apparently is just kind of playing himself (hey, if you're Jeff Bridges, there's nothing wrong with that). Together they patrol the living world looking like a gorgeous model and an old Chinese man (don't ask), making sure that those that should be resting in peace stay that way.
