Cop Out may have missed the mark, but now we have another buddy movie ready to try law enforcement — and dare I say, I think it looks funnier. Titled The Other Guys, the film teams Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell as underdog partners. Overshadowed by their squad's all-stars (played by Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), they try to prove themselves as an equally capable duo, only to get caught up in hijinks.
While the setup itself doesn't sound like anything revolutionary, Ferrell and Wahlberg as an odd couple has me sold. Ferrell is doing his usual schtick here, but it's really refreshing to see Wahlberg continue to do comedy since his brazilliant role in Date Night (especially when he's acting like a wacky... um, peacock?). Check out the trailer (watch for other recognisable faces like Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton and Steve Coogan) and tell me: will you see it or skip it?
