Although the comedy team of Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg does not sound like a threat to Laurel and Hardy or Abbott and Costello, they conjure up consistent laughs in The Other Guys, yet another comedy from Talladega Nights director Adam McKay. Ferrell plays a mild-mannered police accountant partnered with Wahlberg's hothead (recently demoted to desk-jockey duty after shooting a very famous Yankee player during the World Series), and both men must endure the showboating fame of a pair of supercops (Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson) in their New York City precinct house. Along with sending up cop-movie clichés, the movie basically exists to give Ferrell and Wahlberg room to work amusing variations on their characters (with grace notes for Michael Keaton's stereotypical tough captain, too). The loosey-goosey structure works especially well when Wahlberg is needling his partner's squareness or marveling, in wonderfully awestruck tones, at the unbelievable hot-i-tude of Ferrell's wife (Eva Mendes)--a discrepancy made all the more maddening because Ferrell seems indifferent to her charms. Throw in a plot about a billionaire Wall Street crook (Steve Coogan) and the revelation of Ferrell's hilariously dark past, and the movie finds a nice zone of silliness. Of course, any Will Ferrell vehicle must be judged by the opportunities for the star to launch into some borderline-surreal riff--and happily, this film comes through. From the moment Ferrell begins deconstructing Wahlberg's lion versus tuna metaphor, The Other Guys manages to find time for such nonsense, and the film--the world in general, for that matter--is the better for it. --Robert Horton

Product Description

Misfit NYPD detectives Gamble and Hoitz (Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg) are sentenced to life behind the desk. They hate each other and the monotony of their meaningless jobs, as they’re forced to live in the shadow of the two biggest and most badass cops on the force (Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson). But when those guys go down for the count, opportunity knocks for Gamble and Hoitz. Stumbling onto what could be one of the biggest crimes in years, can The Other Guys step up their game to solve the case without killing each other and destroying NYC in the process? From the director of Step Brothers and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely gut busting hilarious! August 7, 2010
Format:DVD
This is one of the funniest movies to come out in a very long time. Here's why:

1. The movie was filled with belly laughing funny bits that were surprising and not the typical cliche kind of stuff. I haven't laughed this hard in ages.

2. There was also a lot of subtle humor, also making this movie very entertaining.

3. Will Ferrell was absolutely hilarious. That's to be expected. What was so surprising was Mark Wahlberg. He was different from his normal hard as nails tough guy roles, and he played off of Ferrell just perfectly. He was so hilarious.

4. Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson were perfect in their roles. They weren't on for long, but they were part of some very funny bits. Michael Keaton also contributed some fun to the movie. Eva Mendes was perfectly cast. All in all, a superb cast that made for an uproariously funny comedy.

While there were periods that moved a bit slowly, that shouldn't stop anyone from seeing this movie. The laughs more than made up for any slower times. Also, those slower periods set up some of the funniest bits later on, and they set up the story.

It was really relaxing to laugh so hard. I felt like I had a mini-vacation. I'd absolutely recommend this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars TLC has never been this funny! August 6, 2010
Format:DVD
I have not laughed this hard since "The Hangover". This has to be the best comedy I have seen this summer, hands down. I only wish I could think of a TLC lyric to bring it all home. Does anyone remember "Waterfalls"? From the wooden gun to the non-stop one liners, I was rolling in the floor. Will Ferrell has not been this good since "Old School" and Mark Wahlberg was ever bit his comedic equal in this fantastic film. From Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson all the way to Michael Keaton, everyone was amazing. Whoever did the casting for this movie took a second seat to only one person, the writers. The script was drop dead hilarious.

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg play two down and out cops? Mr. Ferrell seems to be stuck in his rut by his own choice and since I don't want to give anything away, let's just say that Mark Wahlberg made a colossal mistake to have found his way down to the lower levels of hell. Luckily the two of them are partners. Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson are the heroes of New York City but do to some unforeseen circumstances, they quickly relinquish their title. Wanting to seize the opportunity of the new opening for a hero, our two bumbling cops attempt to solve a very big case.

Apparently some guy has been constructing some buildings without getting a scaffolding permit. Are you kidding me? The two losers meander down to arrest him and fall into a very large case of fraud and an attempted robbery, of a very large nature. I am trying very hard not to give away any of the punch lines in this film but admittedly it is difficult to write this review without doing so, since I was laughing the entire movie.

Format:DVD
"The Other Guys" is the latest collaboration of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, who created other recent comedy classics such as Talledega Nights and Anchorman. This movie has a great combination of insider police humor and current hot button issues in New York City, namely white collar crime. It crosses a few genres, equal parts buddy cop movie, with a comedic take on action flicks, as well as investigations of corporate corruption. It is in the same vein as Kevin Smith's "Copout" which was also released in 2010 and follows the exploits of eccentric cops battling crime in New York.

McKay directed and cowrote this movie, which really has some solid and intricate writing, which is counterbalanced by the antics of Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg's characters, Terry Hoight and Allan Gamble. The opening scene is an obvious ribbing of cliche driven cop action flicks, played to perfection by the team of Samuel L. Jackson and The Rock, whose fate shows a touch of reality and provides a counterpoint to the duo of Ferrell and Wahlberg, whose identity is created as being known only for their mediocrity and incompetence, hence they are "the other guys." Ferrell is an accountant desk cop, who is goaded into discharging his weapon in a "desk pop" in order to fit in with his coworkers. Even though he seems like the "office geek," his development throughout the movie shows a hilariously dark past and an instant magnestism with women, which baffles Wahlberg's character, dubbed the "Yankee Clipper," an action hungry self proclaimed "peacock", who is in the doghouse for accidentaly shooting a baseball player while on a ballpark security detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much, much funnier than expected January 26, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I saw this on a plane this week and practically splurted out coffee on the woman next to me when Samuel L. delivered the line: "If I wanna hear you talk, I'll shove my arm up your a** and work your mouth like a puppet!" Pure poetry. Here are some more gems: "We found your stolen Prius, it was voting for Ralph Nader." / "Your farts aren't manly. They sound like a baby blowing out birthday candles."

The Other Guys is a no-holds-barred send up of the 1980 buddy cop action flick. The over-the-top car chases with Samuel L and The Rock pull together many of the the truly ludicrous stunts that seemed to pass as reasonable in those movies. It's all topped with delicious one-liners ("You have the right to remain silent... but I want to hear you scream!") that would make Shane Black proud.

The writer/director also has an axe to grind on the whole financial industry bailout and there's an excellent Powerpoint-style series of stats that accompany the credits. The bad guys here aren't regular thieves but C-level white-collar types committing financial fraud. It shows how far we've come since the days of Lethal Weapon and 24 Hours.

Will Ferrell is Will Ferrell but the comedic star here is Mark Wahlberg. After being mercilessly ripped by Adam Samberg on SNL, his line delivery actually suits comedy perfectly. The whole thing is like a 90-minute comedy sketch more than a movie and there are enough funny lines and visual gigs to hide the plot. It's been a pretty thin year for comedy, so this is definitely one not to miss.
