The Other Guys Reviews
This film has an hilarious opening segment with The Rock and Sam Jackson to add to the stellar cast of this movie that strikes comedy gold.
Will Ferrell again opts to play a timid character that does not play to his strengths. I, personally find him funnier in more boorish roles. Here and like in Daddy's home he plays the straight guy and is a little wasted.
The Other Guys
Some verbal sparring between Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are hilarious but some of these comic sequences seem to be forcibly created only to lighten up the mood which results into an overlong runtime. The Other Guys is fortunately not your typical buddy cop movie but doesn't stand alone too although it sure is worth a watch to see it through Adam's vision. The writer-director Adam Mackay keeps it smart and practical through its amusing perspective but fails into delivering entertainment throughout the feature. Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are flat out funny especially in their arguments over petty things and the post credit scene. The Other Guys has eerie characters, unpredictable track and great one-liners but what it lacks is a gripping screenplay to hold the audience for around 2 hours.
Should be on anyone's must watch list!
