Movie Info

Unlike their heroic counterparts on the force, desk-bound NYPD detectives Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) garner no headlines as they work day to day. Gamble relishes his job as a paper pusher, but Hoitz is itching to get back on the street and make a name for himself. When a seemingly minor case turns out to be a big deal, the two cops get the opportunity to finally prove to their comrades that they have the right stuff.

    While I appreciate some of the subversive humor and rug-pulling of expectations that this movie pulls, the end result just isn't a very good product. While there are a handful of funny moments, what you're left with for the most part is a tiring, angry, mean-spirited, and shockingly dated movie. Granted I watched this in 2022, maybe it played better back then. But watching it now, I found it weirdly gross and mean a lot of the time, especially in its treatment of women. But not just that, it's just not a very likable movie without any real likable characters. But I'm being kind of harsh, the actors really do give it there all, and I appreciate the genre mashing of hardcore action with comedy, and there are a handful of jokes that genuinely do work. The overall product though, it's just not very good.

    "I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!" Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are The Other Guys in this hilarious buddy cop satire. Tired of taking a backseat, detectives Hoitz and Gamble aim to become the top cops of their precinct by taking down an investment banker who's running an embezzlement scheme. Ferrell and Wahlberg deliver strong performance and have great comedic chemistry together. Plus, Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson have incredibly funny cameo roles. The comedy is especially well-written, and does a good job at lampooning the cop genre. Full of laughs, The Other Guys is wildly entertaining and fun.

    Not the best of buddy cop flicks, but does well enough.

    The duo of Ferrell and Wahlberg entices the screen in this clever and hilarious buddy-cop film. McKay's flick is a comedy, as well as action-filled shoot-out with jokes and bullets flying from end to end. Though the story is partially let down by the slightly strenuous plot and debatable and conclusive intent, Other Guys does well to please its audience. 4.5/5
