May 9, 2019
This is the comedy that many of Ferrell's fans will appreciate, with a talented cast and a solid script peppered with some truly laugh-out-loud moments.
August 23, 2018
The funniest movie of the year so far.
October 24, 2017
All I expected from The Other Guys was that it makes me laugh, and it did, for two hours straight.
October 7, 2015
"The Other Guys" gets completely sidetracked with its seemingly tacked-on high concept about busting white-collar crimes perpetrated by sinister multinational conglomerates.
November 6, 2014
The Other Guys is the rare big-budget studio comedy that knows how to allocate its resources.
November 9, 2013
Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell have excellent chemistry, and provide for a lot of funny moments, but a poorly written plot and some forced jokes make The Other Guys only a good, not great comedy.
September 23, 2012
One of the biggest problems overall, besides the lack of comedy, was the lack of story.

Ferrell hasn't been this funny in years.
February 1, 2011
The first 30 minutes of the film, where this concept is really milked to the max, easily makes for some of the funniest comedy of the year.
January 31, 2011
The Other Guys is the sort of movie that generates some of its best jokes quietly in the background or as quick-hit throwaway lines, while other terrific gags are defiantly over the top.
January 21, 2011
Not all of the gags pan out, but when they do they get more than a few chuckles.
December 21, 2010
Juxtaposes the excesses of our unregulated financial sector with the excesses of the buddy cop movie.
December 20, 2010
This is the fourth feature that Will Ferrell and writer-director Adam McKay have collaborated on, and once again they deliver laugh-out-loud if ultimately disposable comedy with mixed messages about arrested male development.
December 15, 2010
There are quite a few fun and hilarious moments to be had thanks to a knockout supporting cast, but there's a reason we've never followed "the other guys" before.
December 8, 2010
Even the credits at the end of the film are smart, detailing the inequities of CEO pay and the government bailout of AIG and large banking firms.
November 4, 2010
The Other Guys isn't as loose and free associative as its predecessors, planting Ferrell in the middle of a routine mismatched cop plot that doesn't permit him to combust.
October 21, 2010
Stop the press! Multimillionaire actors unite to skewer deep-pocketed bureaucrats and billion-dollar blowouts! Does Adam McKay's The Other Guys herald the end of Hollywood's age of excess? Hmm, not quite.
October 19, 2010
A fast-punching farce with a serious devotion to the random.
October 4, 2010
The balance of action and humour is off here and by dialing down the moments of ridiculousness from his other films with Ferrell, McKay has made them all the more glaringly odd.
