The pitch for this movie comes across as a satire for "cop films" done Will Ferrell's way. Two partners opposite in breed take on New York’s bad guys 'Odd Couple' style.
Conroy- First off, If you are not a fan of Ferrell's comedy, you will NOT enjoy this flick. The movie was not intended to be 'serious' even though there are moments when it looks like action sequences could have been copied and pasted from another sequel of Lethal Weapon. I laughed; Bottom line. I enjoy W. Ferrell's comedy and he didn't disappoint with THE OTHER GUYS! Based off this perception I give this movie a B! Worth Watching and worth laughing! Was it funnier than Talledega Nights? Nope; Even though it comes in at a close second... If you’re not first, you’re last.
