The Other Guys (2010)


Allen and Terry are the other guys, the desk jockeys, not your typical action heroes. But when the two best policemen on the force kill themselves (for some reason), it’s there time to shine. The problem is, they are given a case that involves suspicious scaffolding permits. However, during their investigation they soon realize that the case goes much deeper than that… and now they are the only thing that stands in the way between a massive heist and death. This screwball comedy was funnier the second time around. Ferrell is perfect as the nerdy Det. Allen and it was refreshing to see Wahlberg play and idiot cop. There are lots of tongue-in-cheek moments and that type of hyperbole humor that was previously seen in Anchorman. I didn’t like it too much when I first saw it, but now it’s growing on me.
