And I thought Will Ferell has lost his touch after last year’s mediocre flick “Land Of The Lost”. But he’s still here, doing what he does best. This time around, he teams up with Mark Walhberg (who’s surprisingly funny) as 2 mismatched police officers who desperately want to save the day. Call it “Starsky And Hutch” for dummies. The formula actually works at first, and the cast is game, but it wears off after a while, and never reaches a satisfying conclusion. Still, “The Other Guys” deliver enough jokes to satisfy fans of the genre, so it’s not a total loss. Also, I hear a second installment has already been planned, but whatever happened to that “Anchorman” sequel we’ve been promised?
Fun fact: “In the movie poster Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell have the same badge number of 10712.”
