Plot: Two mismatched New York City detectives seize an opportunity to step up like the city's top cops whom they idolize -- only things don't quite go as planned. Runtime: 107 mins Release Date: 06 Aug 2010
I don't think I have seen a funnier movie in theaters this year, or maybe ever for that matter. So many things about this movie give the audience reason to laugh constantly throughout this film, as that was the case with mine. The chemistry provided by Wahlburg and Ferrell is great; the improv scenes are hilarious. Will Ferrell is finally funny again, as well- If you like "Anchorman" or "Step Brothers," you will love this. Overall, this movie is so outrageous that it works. Is is going to win best picture? Absolutely not. Is it the most fun you'll have at the <more>
movies all summer? Absolutely. Thumbs up for "The Other Guys."
This movie is very stupid.... but I love it! Will Ferral and Mark Wahlberg are both hilarious in this. People tell me this movie is bad all the time... but I don't care. This is a movie that I watch over and over and over and over and over again and don't get tired of it. I watch it constantly while trying to go to sleep. I think I have seen this movie more than any other living person. I have memorized most of the movie included the soundtrack and can't get enough of it. I enjoy most of the characters in the movie and think its great. I would definitely recommend this film to <more>
most people. It's funny, cool, and awesome. WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Funniest film of the summer, possibly of 2010 as well (by moviemaniac008)
I say that as of a few months ago, my reviews weren't 10 stars for any movie I loved and 4 or lower for movies I hated anymore. But to my eyes, this movie truly deserves it's 10 star rating. In The Other Guys, there wasn't a minute in which I felt bored, or started looking at my watch. There wasn't a minute in which I wasn't either laughing my a** off or being captivated by the action sequences. The chemistry between Wahlberg and Ferrell works very well, but the real highlight of the film comes from the first 10 or 15 minutes with Highsmith and Davidson Samuel L. <more>
Jackson and Dwayne ''The Rock'' Johnson , who come out as two crazy cops who deliver both a load of action and laughs. too bad we didn't see them more.I don't want to say much about this film's plot but I can assure you that you will definitely laugh, and thus, more than once. Of course it's a Will Ferrell movie, and his style seems to be a love it/hate it type of humour, and it is shown a bit in this film so if you are bothered with his style maybe you shouldn't see it, but if you enjoy his style then there is no reason you shouldn't see this film. Ferrell had me laughing a lot and so did Mark Wahlberg, shown here in a style of movie we aren't used to see him. Surprisingly, his funny lines come out better than expected I'll never look at that actor the same way since his performance in the Departed, one of the greatest performances ever , and even more laughs came from other small roles, such as Eva Mendes and Brooke Shields. In all it's the funniest movie of the year so far, and it definitely has a chance at scoring high during the Golden Globes next Februray. Go see it now!
"The Other Guys" Soars, & Will Ferrell Is Finally Funny Again (by D_Burke)
Adam McKay is not a household name yet, but movie buffs like me know that when he teams up with Will Ferrell, magic happens. The former "Saturday Night Live" writer directed Ferrell in "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" 2004 , "Talladega Nights" 2006 , and even the popular viral video "The Landlord" 2007 . Movies with Ferrell that have not involved McKay have tried to duplicate the success of "Anchorman", but have failed i.e. "Semi-Pro" 2008 , "Land of the Lost" 2009 .As director and co-writer of "The <more>
Other Guys", McKay brings the best out of Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, and the rest of the cast. It combines action and comedy better than any similar comedy I have seen in a long time."The Other Guys" refers to, of course, the detectives who rarely get a piece of the archetypal cops-and-robbers shenanigans that are frequently seen in action movies or on "Law & Order". They remain mainly at their desks doing paperwork, something almost never seen in movies. Ferrell is Allen Gamble, who is somewhat content with managing case work on his computer, and Wahlberg is the far more forceful and ambitious Terry Hoitz.Their characters are in sharp contrast to the cops that Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson portray in this film and definitely in other films . Although Jackson and Johnson were also funny here, I hate that the previews gave away their cameos in this movie. It would have been more exciting if the audience didn't expect them when they stepped into the theaters. Then again, that is the fault of whomever marketed this film, not the filmmakers themselves.When Allen and Terry start working on a case they have a lead in, one they get to before other senior detectives do, a really interesting detective story progresses that would not feel out of place in dramas like "The French Connection" 1971 or similar action/detective movies to that nature.''When you do a comedy, it does no good to reference comedies,'' writer and director Adam McKay told Entertainment Weekly, ''You want to treat it like a drama 80% of the way. Then, at the last 20%, you f**k it up".The last 20% made this movie work, naturally. More than that, though, Ferrell didn't get all the funny lines, which is the mistake that many buddy cop movies such as the recent "Cop Out" 2010 make. Wahlberg is as intense as he usually is in most movies, but he has laugh- out-loud hilarious lines that he plays effectively with a straight face. His line about being a peacock may make AFI's Most Memorable Movie Quote list in the next few years, and the hot water his character got into in an incident involving Derek Jeter making a cameo as himself made the audience at my screening cheer. Of course, I saw the movie in Boston, but I'm just saying.However, the 20% of the movie that was funny was further enhanced by the story. Again, many buddy cop movies of recent years that have tried to be "48 Hours" make the mistake of introducing the villain early on, similar to a superhero comic book. This movie has you try to solve the mystery along with Ferrell and Wahlberg, and there are some decent twists and turns that really make you wonder who the culprit is.I will say that the mystery was a bit confusing, especially since it involves a Rupert- Murdoch-meets-Donald-Trump tycoon Steve Coogan and some financial plot. As a critic, I could pretend to accurately interpret everything that I see on screen. However, I'm not a Wall Street expert, and numbers involved in trading, stocks & bonds, and all the rest confuse me. Nonetheless, even if you watch this movie not knowing who's wrong or right and why, you will still love the ride.The closing credits featured cleverly-animated financial facts pertaining to the recent financial meltdown, which appeared to be meticulously researched but still out of place. Their presence reminded me of Charlie Chaplin's anti-Nazi plea for humanity at the end of "The Great Dictator" 1941 . His speech didn't fit the slapstick comedy of the first 90% of the movie, but looking back, it was still necessary to hear. I feel as though this montage of facts may have the same effect.Overall, though, "The Other Guys" is not just another movie. Some gags seemed a bit out of place, and the tired plot point of the police chief pulling the main cops off the case still seeped its way into the story. However, it helped that that chief was Michael Keaton in what could be a comeback performance, and that he had some hysterical lines as well. The movie tells a great story, everyone in the movie is funny without appearing to try too hard especially in Ferrell's case , and the ensemble cast works together perfectly. In a year of mediocre non-animated comedies, "The Other Guys" lives up to its hype.
I saw the film with my 60-year-old mom and my teenage son and we all cracked up throughout the film--sometimes at different things and to different degrees. That's touching a true cross-section!! Although the latter 1/3 of the movie isn't quite as funny as the first 2/3, it still brought the laughs. I can't imagine why anyone who enjoyed Will Ferrell in Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Step Brothers would give this movie anything below 7 stars. Maybe the reviewer who said that everyone didn't get the comic references was on to something...although I can't imagine why <more>
people wouldn't. There are humorous references about modern technology, sports, pimpin', geriatrics, !! Who can't find something in one of those to laugh at?!? lol I say DEFINITELY check it out for yourself! I needed a good laugh and I got one...even some true tears of laughter.
Yet another underrated movie given only a 6.6 when a minimum should be an 8. This movie will have you laughing throughout the entire movie. I've watched this movie 3 times already and definitely bought it as soon as it came out on DVD. Will Farrel is a genius at finding some way to make everyone laugh as usual and Mark Walburge is just the touch needed to make the dysfunctional team even funnier. I love Sam and Dwayne's the rock part in the movie all though I thought they should have gotten a bigger role. Overall a great movie and no complaints by me at all. The casting was perfect <more>
also. I hope there's a second movie after this or something similar to this because I haven't laughed this much in a long time. Great comedy.
Wahlberg and Ferrell Deliver Hilariously (by Dave_ATC)
I saw the advanced screening tonight in New York City and it was hilarious. The dry humor was tremendous and the chemistry between Marky Mark and Will Ferrell is unmatched. They were so funny together it was great. The story of the movie is pretty predictable but there legit is non stop laughter through the entire film. The only draw back was the length of the movie, they could have trimmed it a bit but overall it's a solid summer comedy. Dare I say this was Will Ferrell's best performance since Anchorman. It's certainly one of those movies you will be quoting with your friends <more>
for a long time. The entire theater was laughing throughout the entire thing..Great movie...go check it out.
Will Ferrell is BACK! Mark Wahlberg is perfect. (by parisa6)
Just when you think, "If you've seen one Will Ferrell movie, you've seen them all," think again. Ferrell is back and totally redeems himself from the flop that was Land of the Lost by giving one of his most genius performances to date. It does help that Ferrell is partnered with hottie Mark Wahlberg who delivers a superbly-angst-ridden-yet-hilariously-gut-ripping performance. The movie is filled with fresh, sarcastic, and humorous one-liners, non-stop laughter, plenty of action, car chases, and explosions, and a complex plot with a thought-provoking political message. Just <more>
make sure you stay through the credits.I cant't remember the last time I laughed out this loud and this often in a movie theater. One early particular scene in the movie in which Ferrell and Wahlberg argue over whether a lion or a tuna would win in a fight is so well acted and delivered that I was left gasping for air after laughing so hard. And don't be too sure you know who would win such fight, because their logic doesn't go the way any of us could have imagined.I watched this movie right after I saw the painfully boring Dinner for Schmucks. But that can't be the only reason I loved this movie because the whole theater was laughing and clapping along with me, so much so, that I missed half the jokes due to the sheer volume of both. I don't know what else to say about this movie other than "Go see it--it's by far the best comedy of the summer." Parisa Michelle, www.CelebMagnet.com
Everything you expect from Ferrell, except with much more (by diac228)
Just when you think you've seen one Will Ferrell movie, you've seen them all, think again. Try this on for size: Usual Ferrell comedy plus crazy action plus subtle political and economical commentary plus excellent soundtrack. The Other Guys is a surprisingly hilarious and surprisingly action-packed movie that will keep you entertained throughout without actually dumbing you down. Unlike most Will Ferrell movies, you don't have to shut off your brain in this one; you actually have to pay attention because aside from the comedy, there is a complex crime to solve. Adam McKay <more>
delivers his best writing and directing performance, while the excellent cast ranging from Ferrell to Wahlberg to Keaton provides plenty of laughs, plenty of one-liners, and plenty of entertaining moments that propel this movie past the slowest of scenes.The Other Guys is about two mismatched behind-the-scenes paper-pushers Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg quietly investigating a series of suspicious events stemming from a unique bank robbery. Along the way they try to defeat their personal demons and try to figure out how to get along with each other. Unlike most Ferrell movies, in which it's a simple concept and improv provides the filler material, this movie actually has a mildly complex and heavy script, but still gives the cast a chance for a little improvisation. Written by the director and also Chris Henchy, I'll even go as far as to say that this among the best comedic scripts since last year's The Hangover. To add to that, McKay and Henchy pull a neat trick by slowly feeding you some commentary about big business and its mannerisms. The last mainstream comedy to attempt this was the mildly underrated Fun with Dick and Jane remake with Jim Carrey.While this movie does not have the extensive magical gathering of comedians like Anchorman then again, what movie does? , the cast still does an excellent job bringing the comedy from the script to the screen. Will Ferrell is a little more toned-down this time, but still has his usual moments screaming like a girl, random quotes, random singing, quirky one-liners . Mark Wahlberg however, steals the show with his angry lines, his bitter delivery, and his outbursts. The only thing hindering Wahlberg is the PG-13 rating; who knows what more classic lines he could have pulled off if he was allowed to go uncut Remember him in The Departed? . Smaller roles fill the bill in the laughs department, including Eva Mendez beautiful as always , Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, and the cameos.Even though Farrell has been hit-and-miss with the public and the critics, his best work always has been with Adam McKay. Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Step Brothers were their previous collaborations and those three clearly top anything else Farrell has pulled off. The Other Guys in terms of directing and pacing dethrones them all. McKay does more than just handle the camera and let the actors mouth off; he stages some great action sequences and does a fantastic job directing a slow-motion bar sequence that displays the coolest slo-mo effects since Zombieland. The first half was so overloaded with funny scenarios, the audience very often was laughing so hard they missed the next couple of jokes while trying to recover from the last two. One scene in particular had the audience nearly drown out the sound of the audio coming from the movie.The first half was absolutely spectacular and downright comical; the second half never had a chance to duplicate the magic of the first hour. This is where Adam Mckay's biggest issues have been: in the final third of the flicks. All of McKay's movies lose steam and slow down towards the end, preventing them from becoming eternal comedic classics. In the case of The Other Guys, he improved a bit by still providing some of the laughs, even though you will still feel the momentum slowly die down. The cop clichés, while not taken seriously, still mildly hindered the moments leading up to the climax. There were some unnecessary scenes; a little bit of editing could have really helped this movie. But, unlike the other movies, the third act stays afloat thanks to the Wahlberg/Ferrell mix, as well as the continuing mystery that was slowly unfolding. Then stay tuned for the credits, when the commentary rushes at you full-force.Bottom Line: Honestly, I never thought that Will Ferrell would be involved with Mark Wahlberg, a creative script, hidden commentary that unveils itself when you least expect it , and a soundtrack consisting of Rage against the Machine. Nonetheless, the combination worked like a great mixed drink that has you asking for seconds and thirds. The one-liners are flying all over the place, and so are the bullets. The Other Guys is the funniest movie of the year so far, and clearly the best surprise we've had this summer. Adam McKay continues to claim the throne as the best comedic director in the business, and this movie is more evidence. All McKay needs to do is cut back on the overall running time. This is the first Will Ferrell movie that you must pay close attention to in terms of visual humor and crime-solving , and is overall one of his best movies.
