MovieTickets.com said it conducted the survey to coincide with Friday's theatrical release of "The Other Guys," an action-comedy that casts Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as a mismatched pair of detectives.
Forty-one percent of the 15,366 votes cast in the online poll said Smith and Lawrence would make the best police in real life.
Mel Gibson and Danny Glover from "Lethal Weapon" earned 36 percent of the vote, while Bill Hader and Seth Rogen from "Superbad" garnered 14 percent and Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold from "Beverly Hills Cop" got 9 percent, MovieTickets.com said.
