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.

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.

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.

"The Other Guys" starts off as just another cop-buddy movie but, about a third of the way in, it suddenly finds its mojo and turns into a clever, frequently hilarious send-up of not only police procedurals but the whole corporate and bank bailout outrages of the past several years.

The mismatched big-city detectives are played by Will Ferrall and Mark Wahlberg, the former a forensic accountant named Allen Gamble who prefers crushing numbers at his desk to crushing criminals on the streets, and the latter, a stereotypically gung-ho, trigger-happy hothead named Terry Hoitz, who's been busted down to an office clerk for accidentally shooting Derek Jeter at the ballpark, and who`s chomping at the bit to get back to doing what he does best. Together, Allen and Terry mount an investigation into a billionaire (Steve Coogan) who's become the target of a corporate client (Anne Heche) to whom he owes a great deal of money.

"The Other Guys" could easily have been just another big-budget throwaway filled with lame comic set-ups and even lamer jokes. Instead, screenwriters Chris Henchy and Adam McCay (who also directed the film) have come up with a manic mixture of goofiness and near-surrealism that they have refined into a tasty comic brew. Most of the dialogue is sharp and witty, and the situations stop just short of all-out theater-of-the-absurd.

Much of the success of the film can be attributed to the wonderful performances by the two leads, whose decidedly different acting styles complement one another so completely. Wahlberg's deadpan, "straight-man" restraint provides a perfect foil for Ferrall's more over-the-top comic outrageousness, and part of the joy lies in watching these two old pros find their rhythm and go with it.
