The Other Guys

Just a quick hit here - I had a chance to see this movie over the weekend and it was a helluva good time. The Other Guys was released last summer, directed by Adam McKay. There are a ton of high profile cameos and even more laughs. Ferrell is Detective Allen Gamble, a desk jockey averse to field work while his partner played by Wahlberg is Detective Terry Hoitz, rambunctious and aggressive. Gamble is seen as cowardly and Hoitz is a loose cannon who accidentally shot Derek Jeter, scarring his reputation. A ludicrously complicated plot revolving around the financial crisis and investment scams should be largely ignored as you enjoy the absurdist humor and running gags. That's a good approach to pursue actually - don't take any part of this movie seriously at all - a general rule with anything Will Ferrell is in.
