Check out the extended trailers (geez, we've even got Special Editions of trailers now):            I saw this on a plane this week and practically splurted out coffee on the woman next to me when Samuel L. delivered the line: "If I wanna hear you talk, I'll shove my arm up your ass and work your mouth like a puppet!" Pure poetry.      In fact, you can pretty much skip the by-the-numbers plot and focus on the outstandingly …

3 1/2 stars:
Throughout history there have been heroes, mighty heroes who have  rose up out of the shadows to defend humanity during there  darkest hours they have stood tall against oppression and hatred to become some of the most  recognizable names in history. These heroes are know far and wide for there heroic acts and selflessness   but what about the guys who do there job day  in and day out what about the guys who don't get there names in the history books or are adored …

Not as funny as some of Ferrell's other movies, but still worth a few laughs.

I don't think I'm saying anything terribly controversial or original when I state that Will Farrell movies tend to be a mixed bag. His most beloved star vehicles TALLEDEGA NIGHTS and ANCHORMAN, feature many truly hilarious moments, but also moments that just seem a bit weird and random. Farrell and his friend/co-writer/director Adam McKay just can't seem to stop taking diversions that are little more than whims. Sometimes these random moments have a life and excitement of their own (Ron Burgundy …

Dull, dumb, and highly unfunny "The Other Guys" proves to be one of the weakest comedies of the year by far; this one joke film is a supposed spoof on the buddy cop genre. Spoofing such classics such as "Lethal Weapon" and "Rush Hour" but all this film does is deliver one cringe inducing joke after another, after another, after another, after another after... well I think you get the picture. "The Other Guys" suffers from what most comedies do these days, …

Will Ferrell continues his streak of incessantly unfunny movies with THE OTHER GUYS. The flick offers, at best, a few modest laughs and showcases a nearly completely wasted Mark Wahlberg as Ferrell's uptight partner.

Like Laurel and Hardy, like Abbot and Costello, like Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are perfectly mismatched in the buddy cop film "The Other Guys," although outward appearances suggest this would not be the case. They could not be anything less alike, physically, behaviorally, or even professionally; Wahlberg, for example, has been nominated for an Oscar, and Ferrell ... hasn't. Despite this - or perhaps because of this - they play off of each other with the timing …
