Hold on to your buddy cop movie cliches because the first trailer for Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg’s comedy The Other Guys has hit the net. The film is directed by frequent Ferrell collaborator Adam McKay (Anchorman was awesome!) and co-stars the eternally cool Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson. There are explosions, there’s dancing, and there’s Batman…we mean Michael Keaton. Check it out…
The Other Guys centers on two New York detectives Allen Gamble (Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg), a tough guy who’s been stuck with him as his partner ever since an unfortunate run-in with Derek Jeter. They both idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Highsmith (Johnson and Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the “Other Guys” to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.
We’d love to say that this trailer was hilarious from beginning to end but we’d be lying. There were a few instances that were chuckle worthy like the introduction of Ferrell’s wife (Eva Mendes) and Wahlberg breaking into dance but other than that it doesn’t really bring the funny.
What do you think of the trailer for The Other Guys?
