OrlandoSentinel : The pitch must have been, “It’s 48 Hrs with Will Ferrell instead of Eddie Murphy!”
The Other Guys is a Ponzi scheme of a comedy, a buddy action picture cluttered with funny characters and hilarious moments. It’s got Ferrell riffing in full on crazy character mode and a solar system of one-upping supporting players in orbit around him. It’s got over-the-top turns by Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Wahlberg and even Michael Keaton, with Eva Mendes goofing on her va-va-voom image and comic shocks that will make your jaw drop.
Napoleon Review: Great music, a terrific Joaquin Phoenix and amazing storytelling.
