Feels a bit more forced than McKay's other Ferrell comedies, and its Wall Street plotline comes out of nowhere and feels like a completely different movie collided with the usual Step Brothers fare. You'll still find laughs, and its surprising just how well Wahlberg works with Ferrell, but I'd say The Other Guys is lacking in comedic momentum and struggles to find a consistent tone.

The duo of Ferrell and Wahlberg entices the screen in this clever and hilarious buddy-cop film. McKay's flick is a comedy, as well as action-filled shoot-out with jokes and bullets flying from end to end. Though the story is partially let down by the slightly strenuous plot and debatable and conclusive intent, Other Guys does well to please its audience. 4.5/5

Cop films have been parodied to death, if you're going to make a new one it's got to be really good and as much as I liked Mark Wahlberg, the Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson scenes and the fact Will Ferrell toned it down a little, it just didn't entertain me. I thought 21 Jump Street was much funnier - who would have thought.
