The Other Guys
This is a 'chuckle' film. Starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as two junior detectives, it throws up a fair few laughs and combines Will Ferrell's typically 'silly' comedy with action from the likes of Mark Wahlberg and Samuel L. Jackson. (It also has occassional sexy appearances from Eva Mendes.)
Not that that matters! But it is pretty funny, it has a good storyline and is a good watch for an comedy lover. I think the crime they were solving could have been a little more interesting and thrilling as if that was the case, it would have been a terrific film.
It was still good, and still very amusing, it could have just done with that extra bit of 'umph' in the storyline. If it'd been them trying to stop a straight- out bank robbery or a kidnapping of some rich guy or something, then I think that would have improved the film to 8 or 9 out of 10 level.
However, as it is, it is a 7 out of 10.
The best bit for me, which probably makes this film a must see on it's own, is where Ferrell and Wahlberg are trying a good cop/ bad cop routine when interrogating Steve Coogan in his office. Will Ferrell's supposed to be the good cop but goes mental, hitting Coogan and throwing everything around in his office, it is really funny.
I'd recommend this film, you can't really go wrong with Will Ferrell films for me, he is extremely funny. Kind of like this film. So watch it!
