The Other Guys is a buddy cop comedy in the style of Anchorman and Step Brothers. Star Will Ferrell is once again teaming up with director Adam McKay to bring you a retarded character that is less funny every time they make one.
‘The Other Guys’ is about two partner detectives (Ferrell and Wahlberg) who are always outshined by the more successful and popular detective team of Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson. But then, predictably, they get their big break, hilarity sort of ensues, and they’re heroes who the popular guys come to respect, or may the popular guys turn out to be villains. I’m not retarded. I didn’t write the script.

What’s Good About It?
Eva Mendes in lingerie. The Rock. That’s about it.
What’s Bad About It?
I remember when Will Ferrell was really funny. I was younger, the world was full of possibility. I’m blaming everything, including my advancing age, on Will Ferrell. Why can’t he make a film adaptation of his role from 30 Rock? I’d much rather see a ‘Bitch Hunter” film than this crap.
Our Clever Prediction
Anchorman was solid enough as a midlevel comedy, and Step Brothers had its moments, but I have relatively little hope for The Other Guys. I honestly think the funniest guy in the film is The Rock. Ferrell is overexposed for me. I don’t want to see him play another variation of the same moron. Two thumbs down, sucka!
