The Other Guys

We watched The Other Guys on Lovefilm a couple of nights ago. Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell seem like an unlikely pairing and it does jar occasionally.  In fact the film doesn’t keep together very well at times and doesn’t quite seem to have a total confidence in what it’s trying to be.  That said, it has more than a couple of moments where I was full-on LOLing – the finale of the short-lived appearence of Samuel Jackson and The Rock is, for me, comedy gold.  Will Ferrell is what you’d expect and as funny as he should be.  Mark Wahlberg is also, perhaps surpisingly, very funny at times.  Certainly nothing close to a comedy classic but definitely worth a look if you happen upon it.
