Best mainstream american comedy seen in a while. This was Mckay's prime. The TLC allusions, the yelly Marky Mark vs the super calm and humming happy go-lucky Ferrel. Hysterical dark side of college Ferrel (pimp Gator). The way S.L.Jackson & Dwayne Johnson throw themselves of the top of that building with a 'aim for the bushes' approach. The wooden gun. Rage Against the Machine vs Little River Band. Alpha vs Omega. ▽
This was amazing! I'll go with 4 stars for now... think I'm gonna go see it again! I'm kinda liking Mark Walberg... well yes... I do! and you know what? if you have a problem with it - I'm gonna eat you like a tuna, and then I'm gonna have sex with your tuna girlfriend!
Wildly overwritten, frat-joke infested, formulaic mismatched buddy cop flick in full-on Brett Ratner-on-ADHD-medication mode, The Other Guys isn't even diverting enough to watch on an airplane (as I did).
Amusing but not all that funny. I was more disappointed than anything and all the running gags weren't worth revisting. It felt a hell of a lot like I heard 90% of the jokes before. I'll probably give it another shot on cable in a year when I'm not watching a bootleg screener but I'm glad I didn't fork over cash to see this.
This is a very funny movie. It's definitely not one of the great comedies of all time, but it has amazing, gut-busting moments of comedy that make The Other Guys worth watching once or twice. Maybe just once.
