About the Movie

NYPD Detectives Christopher Danson and P.K. Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson) are the baddest and most beloved cops in New York City. They don't get tattoos – other men get tattoos of them. Two desks over and one back, sit Detectives Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg). You've seen them in the background of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and eyes closed. They're not heroes – they're "the Other Guys. "But every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stumble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch that could turn into New York City's biggest crime. It's the opportunity of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff? Columbia Pictures' ensemble action comedy The Other Guys stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, Ray Stevenson, with Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson. Directed by Adam McKay and written by Adam McKay & Chris Henchy, the producers are Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Jimmy Miller, and Patrick Crowley.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This is the fourth feature that Will Ferrell and writer-director Adam McKay have collaborated on, and once again they deliver laugh-out-loud if ultimately disposable comedy with mixed messages about arrested male development. – Joshua Katzman, Chicago Reader, Dec 20, 2010

Fresh: The Other Guys is the sort of movie that generates some of its best jokes quietly in the background or as quick-hit throwaway lines, while other terrific gags are defiantly over the top. – Connie Ogle, Miami Herald, Aug 29, 2011

Fresh: The Other Guys isn't as loose and free associative as its predecessors, planting Ferrell in the middle of a routine mismatched cop plot that doesn't permit him to combust. – Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia, Nov 4, 2010

Rotten: A comedy-action movie that begins far more engagingly than it ends. – Anthony Quinn, Independent (UK), Dec 20, 2010
