The Other Guys

Will Ferrell movies tend to be hit or miss with me but I am happy to say this one hits home. Allen Gamble and Terry Hoitz, played by Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, try to fill in the gap when the two super cops of their department, played by Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson, die in pursuit of criminals by ridiculously jumping after them from the top of a building because they think they are invincible. The rest of the cast includes Michael Keaton as the Police Captain who an odd second job, Eva Mendes as Allen's unbelievably hot wife, and Steve Coogan as the investment broker trying to save his own ass before those he has slighted can get him. For a comedy it has a good plot that holds up amongst the antics with a few good plot turns. If you need a good laugh and missed Dinner For Schmucks, this is a good second choice.
