    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

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