Just when it seemed like the once-robust buddy-cop action-comedy was going to require a do-not-resuscitate order, along comes Will Ferrell and Adam McKay to show ‘em how it’s done.
Having successfully collaborated with director-writer McKay several times in the past, most notably on “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” and “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” Ferrell keeps the winning streak intact while drawing out Mark Wahlberg’s untapped funny side in “The Other Guys.”
Although their yin-yang dynamic makes for the comic dream team of the summer, they receive plenty of expert backup from Michael Keaton, Eva Mendes, Steve Coogan, Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson.
