Hilarious comedy movie!

by Anthony on 10/16/2011

This movie is surprisingly great, it has such a great script and really funny dialog. There are things that happen that you aren't expecting. Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell seem to work well together, I like the included bloopers on the disc too. I thought it always stayed interesting, if you love comedies or even action movies I definitely say get this! Read More

Product Overview

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.

Editors Note
Note A desk-jockey detective and his tough-talking partner get their moment to shine in this buddy police comedy starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, and directed by Adam McKay (ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY, TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY). New York City detective Allen Gamble (Ferrell) is more comfortable pushing pencils than busting bad guys. A meticulous forensic accountant, his numbers are never off. Detective Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg) is Gamble's reluctant partner. Try as Detective Hoitz might to get back on the streets, an embarrassing encounter with Derek Jeter has left a sizable black mark on his permanent record. Detectives Danson (Dwayne Johnson) and Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) are the complete opposites of Gamble and Hoitz: unwaveringly confident, they always get their man, and they do it with style to spare. When the time comes for Gamble and Hoitz to prove their mettle and save the day, their incompetence becomes the stuff of legend.
Reviews
Hollywood Reporter "Ferrell keeps the winning streak intact while drawing out Mark Wahlberg's untapped funny side in THE OTHER GUYS....Ridiculously entertaining..." 08/01/2010
Entertainment Weekly "The movie is as antic and raucous and fun as any of the star's previous screen outings, only this one has a surprisingly rich personal flavor. It's Ferrell's richest riff yet on the comedy of conflicted aggression." -- Grade: A- 08/13/2010
Los Angeles Times 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[C]lever and funny from the first frame....The filmmakers are in fine fettle, which goes a long way to make much of the low-brow silliness and slapstick infectious." 08/06/2010
A.V. Club "Ferrell draws a wealth of good material from his character's oddball ineffectuality, and he partners perfectly with Wahlberg, who's always best at his most incredulous." -- Grade: B 08/05/2010
Wall Street Journal "It's loud, raunchy semicoherent and stuffed to the bursting point with heavy weaponry and car chases....[With] an extended riff on 'Law & Order' that is blessed with inventive wordplay in the sacred tradition of AIRPLANE!..." 08/06/2010
Box Office 3 stars out of 5 -- "[C]onsistently funny....[D]irector Adam McKay gives this undynamic duo a chance to prove their mettle." 08/03/2010
Washington Post "Wahlberg proves himself a master of the slow burn. He's our glowering stand-in, the angry straight man to Ferrell's earnest, unhinged idiot." 08/06/2010
Movieline "Among comic actors, Ferrell is extremely alive to, and generous with, his colleagues. Part of his gift is the way he so willingly provides a reflective surface for them, instead of just hogging the spotlight." 08/05/2010
New York Times "Mr. Ferrell uses his big body, his quick mind and his infinitely fungible voice to yoke disparate and ridiculous traits into a brand new and yet instantly archetypal comic character." 08/05/2010
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's Wahlberg who wins the class clown award, flexing his comedic clout by maintaining a subtle deadpan..." 08/24/2010
Uncut 3 stars out of 5 -- "The first half is all skittery absurdity..." 10/01/2010
Premiere "A goofy cop spoof of sorts with an onslaught of quick-fire jokes....Ferrell plays to his strengths and Wahlberg utilizes his breathless-always-on-the-verge-of-panic persona." 12/14/2010
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "Michael Keaton is a comic god here, delivering a new spin on the unforgiving captain..." 01/07/2010

Review Will Ferrell's recent resume isn't anything to get excited about: Land of the Lost, Step Brothers, Semi-Pro, Blades of Glory. There's a sameness to all of them, not only in that the Ferrell characters are difficult to differentiate from one another, but that the comedy is tired and tepid. Fortunately, The Other Guys has a better grip on what's funny, exhibits solid comedic timing, and is generally more entertaining than tedious. Director Adam McKay has a stronger sense than some directors about how to best employ Ferrell's likeability and cluelessness (his two most disarming on-screen characteristics). McKay started with Ferrell on Saturday Night Live and followed him to the big screen, directing one of the actor's most consistently amusing feature endeavors, Anchorman. (Although, to be fair, he was also responsible for Step Brothers.)...The film's first 15 minutes are by far the most fun (and could be the best quarter-hour of any movie released this year), with Samuel L. Jackson and The Rock letting it all hang out. Jackson screams and shouts one-liners the way he hasn't done since all those fu**in' snakes got on the fu**in' plane. Is there anyone better at knowing self-parody than this man? The Rock, meanwhile, channels Arnold Schwarzenegger from Last Action Hero. Once these two are out of the picture, it becomes a lower-key, straightforward action-comedy, but McKay and Ferrell are smart enough to keep the set pieces fresh and diverse. Some, like Terry's befuddlement with Sharon's hotness, are effective, while others, like Sharon's mother playing the go-between, are less likely to provoke laughter. Comedic timing, as in the "Jersey Boys" snippet or the instance when a man tries to fly, is paramount. For the most part, the jokes have punch lines, which is too rarely the case in big-budget comedies...The Ferrell/Wahlberg matching is not among the screen's most inspired pairings. The two lack chemistry, and Wahlberg's capabilities as the "straight man" are dubious (although his reaction to the choice of the Little River Band as "psych music" is priceless). Aside from his recent supporting role in Date Night, Wahlberg hasn't done much comedy, concentrating his performances in the thriller and/or drama arena, and the lack of experience occasionally shows in The Other Guys. Nevertheless, the responsibility for being funny rests on the shoulders of Ferrell and, for the first time in several years, he is up to the task (with more than a little help from Jackson and Johnson).

Review Even though [Adam] McKay is clearly enjoying the opportunity to stage legit car chases and blow things up, he never strays too far from the comedic task at hand, going through one cop-movie cliche after another...The plaintive, soaring alto-sax solo that kicks in after a dramatic moment? Check. The explosion that takes everyone by surprise and sends our heroes flying skyward? Check. The gruff captain who calls the cops into his office and gives them a dressing down? Check. One partner showing up at just the right moment to save the other partner? Check. The Other Guys hits all those overly familiar notes and many more -- but each time with a wickedly satiric spin.
