  • Ferrell is effortlessly uproarious. And watching hardass Wahlberg, in his first starring shot at farce, shake his sillies out is not to be missed. show more

  • It's loud, raunchy, semicoherent and stuffed to the bursting point with heavy weaponry and car chases, most of which involve a red, cocaine-covered Prius that's been pressed into service as a police car. But Adam McKay's comedy of chaos, which he wrote with Chris Henchy, can also be very funny. show more

  • There's a fine line between stupid comedy that's actually pretty smart and stupid comedy that's just dumb, and The Other Guys crosses the line - into realms of unredeeming dunderheadedness - more often than it should. show more

    WAs a self-described "Movie Afficianado" I really wanted this to be a great comedy. It wasn't. In fact it was just a stupid, unfunny, mess of poorly written gags cobbled together in, perhaps, one of the saddest attempts at humor I've ever seen. Will Ferrell is awful, not funny and the whole premise is lame. Sorry, this is truly a stinker!rite your review here...
