The Other Guys new movie with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg
The Other Guys is a 2010 action-comedy crime film starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg and a whole line up of stars Dwayne Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Eva Mendes, Steve Coogan, and Ray Stevenson!
Detectives Danson (Dwayne Johnson) and Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) are the police department hot shots, nothing stops them out in the field and they are idolised by Detective Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell), a forensic accountant who's more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg), who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since shooting Derek Jeter during the 2003 World Series.
Allen and Terry worship Danson and Highsmith and receive absolutely no respect from the other officers (especially Allen, who is tricked into firing his gun in the office and gets it confiscated, leaving him with a wooden practice gun).
Finally an opportunity arises for Terry and Allen (the "other guys") to step up and things don't quite go as planned!
The Other Guys has received positive reviews from critics, garnering an 78% "Certified Fresh" rating, or 7/10 rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, and an 77% rating among the site's "Top Critics," the consensus being "While not the best collaboration between Will Ferrell and Adam Mckay, The Other Guys delivers bursts of comedy during a summer devoid of laughs." Peter Travers of Rolling Stone praised the film, saying, "Don't let anyone spoil the wildly hilarious surprises. Ferrell and Wahlberg will double your fun. Guaranteed."
