'The Other Guys' Review By Julian Left
I guess just THE Guys were too dumb for the job... Damn right!
The casting was so and so. You have Dwayne Johnson aka "The Rock" and Samuel L Jackson thrown in the movie just to sell some tickets but in fact you only get one of the "not-so-good" (let's not call it "the worst") actors of the moment, Mark Wahlberg and you got a classic comedian, Will Ferrel, which was the only good male choice. He acted so well as a nerdie loser type of cop I almost enjoyed pretty much each scene with him. The best female part goes easily to Eva Mendes, not only that she looked hot but she is a better actress than most of these "Hollywood Models".
The film was shot pretty good, you got a stop-motion scene which was really cool till I realize you have Black Eyed Peas as soundtrack... Then again, the soundtrack was in the same tone with the movie... Hilarious... Overall, the movie is watchable, enjoyable, fun, ridiculous at points... It's entertaining if you look for a movie that does exactly that... I mean as a comedy it makes you deliver some laughs but otherwise it's just average...
Here's my ratings for this flick... see you on my next review...
Art Direction: 6/10.
