Movie: The Other Guys

On Friday night after the kids went to bed we watched The Other Guys .  Its a cop comedy/drama starring Will Ferrell (I last saw him in Land of the Lost , a bad movie).and Mark Wahlberg (I last saw him in Date Night and The Lovely Bones , both good movies).  Overall it was a good movie, but some of the parts could have been better.  I really like the Tuna and Lion story (So did my brother), the “Pimps Don’t Cry” song is classic and I loved Eva Mendes (I last saw her in We Own the Night , a great movie).  The story basically is two desk cops taking a shot to replace two action cops, they (really Will Ferrell ‘s character) discover a fraudulent scaffolding permit and the plot thickens… Deep Thought: What makes some people soo funny?  I can only imagine everyone on the set of the movie smirking or at least holding a smirk back everytime they saw or had a scene with Will Ferrill. Likes: Will Ferrell , Eva Mendes , “Pimps Don’t Cry” song, the bribes (mostly them not thinking they were bribes) Dislikes: Total corruption (I don’t think any corruption stone was left untouched), hitting on married women and a slight dislike for Mark Wahlberg …he could have done like 25% better. I’ll give it a 7/10 it was a solid comedy with some cop drama.
