All these cinema visits are really getting a bit expensive now! So I hope that I can find some time in-between to review the films! There were a couple of films on at the cinema recently that both looked hilarious and The Other Guys was one of them. I’m not really that keen on the likes of Will...

“The Other Guys”

published 15/03/2013

ProGenuinely Funny

ConsIs a little long for a comedy

So rolling into day three of this challenge, I’ve opted again for something relatively easy compared to a lot of the other material I will be tackling. The Other Guys is a cop buddy comedy movie with an all star powerhouse cast — Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Michael Keaton, Samuel Jackson, The...

ProFunny, well thought out, good cast

ConsBit hit and miss at times

The Other Guys is an interesting variation on the buddy cop film, as it focuses on two police men who have to live in the shadows of their more esteemed high profile colleagues. I saw the trailer in the cinema and thought it looked slightly more intelligent than it was perhaps sold, I think I was...

ConsLove him or hate him!

Stars - Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell Run Time - 107 minutes Certificate - PG13 Genre - Comedy --------------------- You either get Will Ferrell or you don't, and if you don't then he is just not funny in any way, one presumes, his deadpan humour an acquired taste, just wanting to push a clown...

ConsNot a fan of Ferrell

I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick and to be honest, from outer appearances, I wasn't too hopeful. Considering I wasn't particularly looking forward to it, I guess it was better than I thought because it was at least watchable. The Other Guys was written and directed by Written and...

“Entertaining goofy cop film”

published 02/04/2011

ProExtremely funny

ConsNot quite as good as some other Ferrell films

The Other Guys might not be up for any fancy awards, it's not particularly clever and the cinematography is nothing special but it's exactly what you would expect from a film directed by Adam McKay and with Will Ferrell in the leading role (like Talladega Nights and Anchorman) The Other Guys is...

“A hilarious film”

published 30/09/2010

ProHilarious, great castlist, good director work.

ConsPoor story.

I wasn't optimistic about The Other Guys, but I am very glad I saw it, mainly because of the comedy. For starters, as I said, it is a hilarious film. It is especially funny at the first third of the film. There are moments in it after the first third that are extremely funny, but in less parts of...

Product Information : The Other Guys (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

In this action/comedy directed by Adam McKay (ANCHORMAN) New York City detective Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) is more comfortable pushing pencils than busting bad guys. A meticulous forensic accountant, his numbers are never off. Detective Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) is Gamble's reluctant partner. Try as Detective Hoitz might to get back on the streets, an embarrassing encounter with Derek Jeter has left a sizable black mark on his permanent record. Detectives Danson (Dwayne Johnson) and Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) are the complete opposites of Gamble and Hoitz: unwaveringly confident, they always get their man, and they do it with style to spare. When the time comes for Gamble and Hoitz to prove their mettle and save the day, their incompetence becomes the stuff of legend.
