Detective Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Detective Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) are a joke at the police station. Can this down and out duo, nerd and hot headed tough guy, overcome a plethora of humorous obstacles, accidents, and misunderstandings to bust the bad guys in a high profile case and gain the respect of their peers?

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this film! 14 April 2011
By Sati
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first watched this movie on a USA to UK flight, and even though the aeroplane environment meant that I was uncomfortably squeezed into a boxy seat and could hardly hear some parts of the film I STILL found it very funny! Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are an unusual pair to team up but it works; good to see Wahlberg doing some comedy. Also Micheal Keaton does a great turn as the Police Captain. A great parody of buddy cop movies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gator needs to chill! 11 Aug 2011
By j.r
Will Ferrell finds himself a stable job as an accountant for the Police in The Other Guys where he teams up with stressed out cop Mark wahlberg. The back story to Ferrells character is so funny I don't want to spoil it here, it's one of Ferrells best moments. The Other Guys is brilliant for so many reasons, but ultimately the main reason is that it's totally hilarious. Will Ferrell has been in so many funny films now he must be just about beating comedy greats such as Steve Martin, Jim Carrey, and Bill Murry, and thank god Ferrell hasn't gone the family film route yet. This film stands as one of Ferrells best along side Step Brothers, Anchorman and Old School.
Also watching this film reminds you how great Michael Keaton is when given a good funny role. I'd love it if he was given a leading role in comedy films again like he did in the 80's and 90's with Nightshift, Beetlejuice, The Dream Team and Multiplicity. Maybe the next Ferrell film could star Keaton alongside him in some zany comedy, that would be amazing.
The Rock and Samuel L.Jackson are also superb in this film, it is insanely funny what they do. It's sick that it's so funny. There's also a very cool Ice T voice over that works brilliantly. Normally I hate voice over narration in films yet it works the way Ice T delivers it. Eva Mendes is also good casting and truly hot playing Ferrells wife in some funny scenes with Wahlberg drooling over her. It's good to see Steve Coogan get a good part in an American film and not only appearing briefly (as he did in Tropic Thunder before having an explosive exit).
This DVD is a shorter cut(12 rating) than the Blu-Ray edition(15 edition) with some altered scenes. I have seen both versions and can say that over all the shorter version is probaly the better watch as the pace is quicker.

Incredibly funny movie. Ferrell at his best, marky marky - funky bunch but actually doing comedy well and Mendez being hot and funny. All round bonus movie. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall a very funny film 18 Mar 2011
As has been suggested by the trailer, this film follows the often calamitous and frequently hilarious "other guys" Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell. This is a very good comedy and is well worth a watch.

The film begins with a brilliant cameo appearance from Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L Jackson, which introduces the comparatively dull main characters. There are excellent performances all around; from the performances of the leads to excellent supporting roles by Steve Coogan and Eva Mendes - everyone contributes to the film.

The one criticism that I would have is that amongst the many moments that will have you laughing out loud, there are a few awkward jokes that frankly feel forced and completely unfunny. Fortunately for Ferrell, his goofy demeanour and acting style allows him to remain funny when these situations arise; Mark Wahlberg on the other hand looks like the only person laughing at the joke they've just cracked.

I also admire the fact that the film, despite its comedy, attempts to tackle a serious and relevant issue in today's society - that of unscrupulous investors and bankers (a point that is hammered home with some interesting facts at the end credits).

This is a very funny film, with several very funny moments delivered by a series of excellent comedic acting performances. There will be the occasional "funny situation" that has you cringing, but bear with it and you'll be laughing again in no time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It 21 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best films ever - the opening is brilliant and unexpected (well the first time round!!!). Eva Mendes is awesome as Wills wife, with some great one liners all round. This film is a hoot from start to finish.
Buy it !!! I promise you will be quoting lines from it for ever!!!! As i do - "Aim for the bushes", I'm calling BS on that, I need an MRI!

I really am going to have to start taking viewer ratings with a pinch of salt when films like this get 4 stars overall and 8.2 on IMDB. It just awful.

It starts out unfunny, stays unfunny for about 30 mins (although there are attempts at humour), picks up and becomes funny for about 2 scenes and then is just awful for the next hour or so.

I like Will Ferrel. I even like Mark Wahlberg - but together - they just don't work. There is zero chemistry between them on screen and the jokes are weak, the story long, pointless and convoluted.

By the end I'd lost the will to watch it and just had it playing in the background. It just didn't work. I seriously thought about giving it 1 star but think a 2 star rating is probably more accurate.

Smart jokes and ads, nice action. The movie also gives some info about some financial scandals.

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly funny film which isn't really a comedy
Sometimes a `comedy' film boasts a whole host of A-list comedic actors and ends up not being particularly funny at all. Read more
