Don’t go for this movie if you don’t want to laugh till your stomach bursts and tears roll down your eyes. Packed with a superb star cast starring Will Ferell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes and yes even the Rock, this laugh riot is a definite MUST WATCH!

In the film’s opening, Samuel L. Jackson and Dawyne Johnson are the testosterone-oozing supercop duo that are media darlings and overshadow everyone else at the police precinct. Terry, a popular street cop, is demoted to a paper-pusher post with Gamble, someone with whom the word “mismatch” would be a huge understatement! When the tough guys exit, it’s up to the Other Guys to own up and take crime by its horns.

While Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg) is the easily enraged aggressive cop, Allen Gamble (Ferell) is the nerdy, timid softy who for some inexplicable reason is wildly attractive to women throughout the movie. It’s obvious that the misfit pair gets on each other’s nerves but somehow in a bizarre way complement each other perfectly in this harebrained goofball script. Though the plot has been given little relevance, it doesn’t matter as the star of the show is the satire. The plot includes a conniving equity-fund manager (Steve Coogan) who on losing $32 billion through bad investments for a major bank is made to launch a twisted plan to cover-up the staggering debt. What starts as a scaffolding investigation for Detective Gamble and his ‘buddy’ Hoitz ends up as this mayhem!

The film is a cynical take on from ‘buddy-cop-action’ movies to Walstreet scams and scandals. You will be caught completely off guard by the shocking and unpredictable comedic scenes including one in which Johnson advises, “Aim for the bushes”. What ensues will have your jaws dropping.

Sam Jackson does another self parody. Will Ferrell is a comedic genius, memorable for his characters – Ron Burgundy in Anchorman or Ricky Bobby in Talladega Nights, creates a new stereotype with clueless egotistical Gamble. Mark Wahlberg plays his irate macho character well, except for one scene in which he does a pirouette in a ballet studio to woe his ex-girlfriend and comes across as a docile butterfly! Hoitz is completely at a loss to comprehend how on earth a man like Gamble gets a hot siren as a subservient wife (Eva Mendes) and to top that he keeps demeaning her! The odd couple is another reason why the film dwells on throwing all logic out of the window. Somehow it all works!

Heads Up! Stick to your seats till the very last credits have rolled out. You’re in for an outrageous shock!
