The Other Guys

The other guys is the latest adventure by Will Ferrel and Adam McKay.  The movie stars Will Ferrel you might guess, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Mark Wahlberg, and Michael Keaton.

So Will Ferrel and Mark Wahlberg play the screw ball cops, the cops that aren’t in the spotlight, only the only so so cops. Mark plays a washed out cop that accidentally shot Derek Jeter during the World Series, Will Ferrel is an office paper pusher too afraid to go out and be a cop.

This film was ok, worth a watch.  I think it is one of Will Ferrel’s best jobs since the days of Anchorman.  The movie had some burst out loud laugh scenes that really hit the spot.  I think the mixture of Will’s slap stick comedy combined with Mark’s over the top performance was a blast.  I really enjoyed this film.

It was nice to see Michael Keaton in this film. I think he plays a better secondary character than the main lead.  Michael Keaton has been going downhill ever since Multiplicity.

I didn’t particularly enjoy the end.  It was one of those all of the sudden wrap ups.  It was in the climax one second, then suddenly done.   You could make a lot of jokes about my statement just a second ago, but hopefully you understand what I’m saying.

The movie is worth checking out, a good comedy for the wrap up of the summer.

I hereby declare this film a 75 out of 100.  Most certainly worth a rent.
