The Other Guys Review

Not every police officer can be as cool or as kick-ass as Riggs and Murtaugh or Crockett and Tubbs or, in the case of this film, NYPD super cops Christopher Danson and P.K. Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson, respectively). Someone has to file the reports, do the grunt work and plan the bake sales or union meetings. These duties fall to The Other Guys, the unsung cops who have to endure the exploits and egos of their more celebrated and heroic brethren.

The other guys here are detectives Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg). Terry was thisclose to his big break as a detective before (hilarious) misfortune befell him and he finds himself demoted and partnered with the mild-mannered Allen, a forensic accountant with a badge. Terry hates Allen for his blandness, his passivity, and for accepting doing the scut work while Danson and Highsmith hog all the glory. But Terry will discover there is more to Allen than he first thought, beginning with his sexy wife Sheila (Eva Mendes).
