The Other Guys

First slide

This occasionally amusing but excessively vulgar action comedy follows the odd-couple antics of an eccentric, paperwork-loving police accountant (Will Ferrell) and his frustrated perforce partner (Mark Wahlberg) - a former street cop unwillingly desk-bound after making a high-profile mistake - as they investigate the financial shenanigans of a British-born banker (Steve Coogan). Director and co-writer Adam McKay's parody of genre conventions handcuffs its talented cast with relentlessly foul-mouthed dialogue and tiresome bedroom jokes.

Watch out for: Considerable, though bloodless, action violence; much sexual humor; a couple of uses of profanity; and pervasive crude and crass language.

Rated: O; MPAA: PG-13
