    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    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

    A typical vehicle for Ferrell's atypical humor. show more

    Like a padded "Saturday Night Live" sketch. What would have been very funny for 15 minutes, and pretty funny for 45, doesn't maintain the standard over the course of a feature-length film. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    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

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    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

    Wahlberg is surprisingly committed to the ridiculousness. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    Nimbly blending comedy and action -- with an affectionate slo-mo nod to John Woo -- McKay does his best work to date here. show more

    The Other Guys isn't easy to peg. It's not a comedy that loosens you up and mellows you out; it works by needling you progressively into a state of anxiety. show more

    So hilarious that even longtime Ferrell haters (me) can't resist it. 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...

    it was more of a long 2 hour commercial for a Toyota and needed to stay on the actual ******************** like rotten eggs. A word to describe it: T.E.R.R.I.B.L.E.

    The movie never really got started, until the end. When it finished, it was much better, during the credits....that's when I was cleaning the dishes...a much better task than watching this movie....except for Brooke Shields, who made made an outstanding cameo as a potential calender girl for avon products sold at CVS drugstores across the nation. See it when you are sleeping, but for now, skip it.

    I recommend not to see this movie because it was terrible and it should not be called a comedy.

    This movie was the biggest disappointment ... I decided to rent it after reading these reviews. "SEE IT" Are you serious? The $4.99 I spent renting this film would have been much better spent on a Starbucks latte.

    I have lot's of word for this type of Ratbaster, worse than Battlefield Earth.
