New York City Detective Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) is a forensic accountant who is more interested in paperwork than fieldwork. Detective Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) has been stuck working with Gamble since an embarrassing shooting. Gamble and Hoitz both admire top cops Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) and Danson (Dwayne Johnson), but when their chance to show their stuff arises, things go wrong.
Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Eva Mendes, Ray Stevenson, Steve Coogan, Rob Riggle and Damon Wayans Jr. That’s quite an ecclectic list of names for any director to fit into a film together, but somehow writer and director Adam McKay has managed it. We’ve obviously got high hopes for The Other Guys, after all Ferrell and McKay managed to produce one of the most popular cult movies in recent memory when they created Anchorman a few years back – but then they also worked together on Land of the Lost last year, so the jury will remain very much out until 1st September when this film hits cinemas.
