    Let's go! Ipkiss! Move it!

    It's from the movie "The Mask"

    Lieutenant Kellaway to Ipkiss while knocking at the door: Ipkiss, I know you're in there. Open up. Come on. I'm getting blisters on my fingers. Let's go! Ipkiss! Move it!("move it" implies "hurry up open the door")

    Could someone please tell me the meaning of "let's go" in the given context?

    PS: He(Lt. Kellaway) just wants to interrogate Ipkiss about some robbery(They're not going anywhere).

    Re: Let's go! Ipkiss! Move it!

    "Let's go" means it is time to move now, no more delays or interruptions, the time to do it is now.

    Re: Let's go! Ipkiss! Move it!

    Wotcha guys!

    It's again from the movie "The Mask"

    Dorian to his associates: I want him(Stanley) here tomorrow... alive. You understand? You're still here? Come on, let's go!(Dorian wasn't going with them)

    Dorian wasn't going with them then why he used "let's go"?

    I think in that context, "let's go" means "Quit wasting time".

    Am I right?

    "Quit wasting time".

    That's what I said.

    Read. Stop. Think.

    Then post again if necessary.

    Re: Let's go! Ipkiss! Move it!

    And when you repost, please don't open with "Wotcha guys!" Whilst we don't demand any level of formality on this forum, we discourage the use of non-standard words ("wotcha") and, even though "guys" can be used when addressing a mixed group, many people consider it to refer only to men, thus excluding all our female members. Use "Hello" or "Hi" or just go straight into your message.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I have no idea what "wotcha" is supposed to mean.
