Caught The Other Guys the other day and it was really funny! I mean, the combination of Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell is already funny… so how about them as partners?
With detectives Danson and Highsmith (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson) being the most bad-ass and beloved cops of NYC, Terry and Allen (Wahlberg and Ferrell) are left to do all the paperwork instead. When Terry and Allen accidentally stumble onto a seemingly simple case that is actually complicated on many levels, they find danger at every turn and even their shoes were stolen.
Terry Hoitz: I’m like a peacock. You gotta let me fly!
Mark Wahlberg is pretty funny as the frustrated cop because he’s really mad at the audit-crazy and paperwork-loving Allen. Throughout the show, you’ll realize all these totally hot ladies making eyes at Ferrell – seriously, I have no idea where the magnetism is coming from. I’d rather go for Marky Mark! Another scene involving Allen’s mother-in-law is particularly funny because she has to pass all these really dirty messages between the couple. Plus, stay till the end of the credits for a short scene, and I like the fact that the ending credits has economical statistical facts all over in cool funky colours – what a way to know boring old stats.
