The Other Guys - Will Ferell Is Funny Again

Will Ferell is funny again - i choose that title because it's been sometime since i have seen a out and out comic movie from him. The last hillarious movie of Ferell which i remember is "Step Brothers". I was super excited about this movie since i saw the first theatricals promo of the movie. I was impressed by the promo as it is the first time i have seen Mark Wahlberg doing comedy. It's also been a long time since i saw Mark on screen.


Well, the whole movie concentrates on two characters played by Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferell. Both are good actors but have been out of touch for sometime. Mark's last couple of movies haven't done good especially the much expected "Max Payne", which was a disaster. Will Ferell also seemed to have lost his comic touch as some of his last movie didn't do well.

Eva Mendes is the eye candy of the movie. She does what she does well that is too look gorgeous and sexy. There wasn't anything for her in the movie. Just a small character.


Allen (Will) and Terry (Mark) are two federal detectives which work in back office, mostly paper work and no action in the middle. Terry want to be famous and known as the city hero like P.K (Samuel L. Jackson) and Christopher (Dwayne Johnson). After an accident, where P.K and Chris dies, Mark sees the opportunity of being the new hero of the city. He persuades Allen to work with him so that they can be the new hero. But Allen is doesn't agree but still helps his partner. Then, one day, they find information about a huge fraud case involving big names of the city. They try to pursue the case and find the guilty but as they start digging deep in to the case, they attract attention of the bad guys, who gets around them and gets them off the case. Both are transferred to different department, Terry in Traffic and Allen to beach security. Terry accepts his new life and job but Allen couldn't. He keeps investigating till one day he finds all the evidences.

How the duo of Allen and Terry becomes the new hero's of New York City is the rest of the story.

Good Points 

This is the best of Will Ferell's performances. I was laughing the whole way in the movie. His timing and everything was just perfect in the movie. This movie reminds me of why i liked Will Ferell in the first place.

Mark Wahlberg is just awesome. He plays the frustated cop who has fed up of the paper work and wants to be in the middle of the action in the streets. Mark is just great in the movie. The times when i was ogling at Eva's breasts, i was ROFL.

It's a really good story with great comedy.

Bad Points

Eva looked so sexy in the movie that i wanted to watch more of her but didn't get. Anyways, that's not a bad thing.

It's not a great great movie but you'll certainly enjoy it.

7/10 for me.
