Adam McKay might be one of the smartest comedic directors working today. He’s one of the few capable of making comedies that have some brain cells in them. His newest film, (the hilarious) The Other Guys, is no different. McKay walked a fine line of not making another cop spoof and has instead turned in a straight-faced comedy. But it’s really more of an action movie. It follows the tropes, the story structure and the whole cop movie formula we all know… except it has an oblivious non-hero duo at the center.
