The Other Guys (2010). Directed and co-written by Adam McKay. The story centres around two cops, Allen Gable (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg). After the two uber tough cops in their department accidentally kill themselves, Gable and Hoitz try to step into the gap to solve a series of crimes involving multi-billionaire David Ershon (Steve Coogan). If I'd known that Ferrell and McKay had collaborated on Talladega Nights and Step Brothers I would have skipped this - I didn't finish either of them. I persisted with The Other Guys, but it got maybe 2-3 vague laughs from me throughout. Whatever sense of humour is required to enjoy these films, clearly I don't have it! It feels like comedy in slow... slow motion. If you enjoyed Talladega Nights and Step Brothers (and Anchorman) you might get something from it. 1/5 (Awful)
