I assumed that I would find this movie better than most because my gut tells me it isn't as great as I think it is. But... it is. I found this movie hilarious. It is much crazier and funny than most buddy-cop films where Wahlberg actually got me to laugh with his "I'm a Peacock Captain, you have to let me fly" and the reasons for him knowing art, dance, and the like. He is almost doing a parody of himself the whole movie. Ferrell on the other hand was very good at sharing the spotlight and I found him to be hysterical.

Not as funny as I hoped it would be.The funniest scenes were the 1s that were shown on the movie trailers.I found The Rock & Samuel Jackson more funny together then I did Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg.After The Rock & Samuel Jackson died, I didnt find the movie to be as funny anymore & it went downhill from there

While there were some great moments throughout the film, I couldn't help feeling this was just another generic buddy comedy, despite the big names involved. It's good enough for a watch if you're in the mood, but didn't blow me away.

A solid comedy that brings Will Farrell back to his best rolls. An awkward guy that is just a bit off. Also helps that he is not really the main character. I think this will be better on second viewing. One of the better comedies of 2010.

Funnier than expected!

THE OTHER GUYS is one of those comedy spoofs poking fun at the buddy cop genre and although it isn't a perfect comedy, it does have several laugh out loud moments.

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg play Adam Gamble and Terry Hoitz, two desk jockey police officers who seek to get higher notoriety within their division. After the abrupt death of the two most respected cops (Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson, better known as The Rock) within the station, they see this as their chance to finally get out of their slump.

The mismatched pair could not be more different. Adam makes the effort, likes the office work and (to his partners dismay) is surprisingly adept with women (you get a nice running gag of every hot woman wanting his body) whereas Terry is really unhappy with staying indoor...
