Movie Review:The Other Guys
This past friday I went with my brother to the movies to see the new movie with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell called the Other Guys. It was a really funny movie not as good as Will Ferrells other movies he has done but still the movie was good overall. Movie was directed by Adam McKay. Overall its about action hero detectives P.K. Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) and Dwayne Johnson (Christopher Danson) are the hot-shots of the NYPD. When they’re put out of commission, it leaves a space open for a new pair of crime fighting super cops. Detective Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) thinks he’d have that action hero glory by now if it weren’t for two major snags 1) he’s became one of the biggest jokes/hated figures in the department after he accidentally shot Derek Jeter; and 2) he’s with the world’s happiest desk jockey, Forensic Accountant Alan Gamble (Ferrell). However, when a suspect (Steve Coogan) in one of Gamble’s files leads to a more exciting case, Hoitz pushes his reluctant partner into an adrenaline fueled chase lead by their captain (Michael Keaton). Eva Mendes was also in the movie as Allan Gambles(Will Ferrell) wife her name was Sheila. Overall I would give this movie a 7.5 out of 10 I thought it was funny the plot wasnt the best thing ever but overall it was funny and Ferrell and Wahlberg worked well together. If anyone likes comedies I suggest to go check it out or if your a Will Ferrell fan.
