The Other Guys
I am not sure what to say about this film. I laughed my ass off. That should be enough to go see it. Goofy and slow at times. But, I did laugh my ass off.
Highsmith (Jackson) and Danson (Johnson) are two hot shot cops who crack all the cases. Make all the arrests and have a celebrity status amongst the media and New York. On the other hand. You have Gamble (Ferrell) and Hoitz (Wahlberg). The other guys. When Highsmith and Danson are killed in the line of duty. There is a shift in the police department. Who is going to fill such big shoes? Certainly not Gamble and Hoitz. But, you never know where heroes come from. And out of nowhere. The case Gamble is working on. Leads to one of the biggest arrests in New York.
The storyline is silly. But, I laughed throughout the movie. And that is why we go to see films that have Will Ferrell. And he didn’t disappoint. I would watch this film again. Just for the quotes.
