Film Review: The Other Guys

FilmJournal
4 August 2010
  • Excerpt: A surprisingly witty satire of buddy-cop movies—not a parody, not The Naked Gun—this fourth pairing of Will Ferrell and co-writer/director Adam McKay (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Step Brothers) punctures the testosterone bags of a zillion...

Plot overwhelms comedy in 'The Other Guys'

Las Vegas Weekly
4 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The recent mini-revival of the action-comedy has given us movies both terrible ( Cop Out ) and mediocre ( Date Night ). The Other Guys isn’t quite able to redeem the genre, although it delivers a number of laughs over its first 45 minutes. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have a nice dynamic as a pair of desk-jockey cops (one meek, the other angry) who take on a high-profile case that finds them completely out of their depth.

Other Guys, The

Empire Online

  • Conclusion: Skewers the action genre while also finding room for sheer madness. We’ve still yet to see the equal of Ron Burgundy, but this latest offering is a wonky yet worthy addition to the McKay/Ferrell pantheon.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
9 September 2010
  • Excerpt: "The Other Guys" is a clear cut above the typical Hollywood comedy, offering a swag of genuine laughs that are both original and often unexpected. The storyline is your standard buddy-cop fanfare, but often veers off to focus on extended jokes about the characters which would make even the hardest cynic laugh. The 'been there, done that' action leaves a little to be desired, but an onlsaught of jokes offer the audience a uproarious distraction throughout.

The Other Guys DVD

27 April 2011
  • Summary: Het is tegenwoordig een bekend recept voor veel komedies: zorg voor heel veel flauwe, melige momenten en als je publiek in de juiste bui is, wordt het misschien nog wel gewaardeerd. Bepaalde komische acteurs komen hier nog mee weg, maar het duo Wahlberg en Ferrell zeker niet. Soms kent The Other Guys zowaar oprecht grappige en originele momenten, maar die zijn te spaarzaam om van een geslaagde komedie te kunnen spreken.
  • Pros: Heel soms even grappig en origineel
  • Cons: Voorspelbaar verhaal, Bedenkelijk niveau, Weinig extra vermaak op de disc

  • Conclusion: - "Hvad fanden er det her?" - "Det er min bil, det er en Prius." - "Jeg har det som om vi i bogstaveligste forstand kører rundt i en vagina". Dette er en af samtalerne mellem Will Ferrell og Mark Wahlberg, der har hovedrollerne som to betjente, der må leve i skyggen af de noget sejere kollegaer (blandt andet spillet af The Rock og Samuel L. Jackson i en lang, latterlig og hylende morsom åbningssekvens).
