The Other Guys
The Other Guys is really funny. Yay! I loved the trailer - Mark Wahlberg's shock at Will Ferrell's hot wife (and his delivery of the line, "No really - who is that?") is the Greatest Thing Ever in Comedy. I always like Marky Mark in movies (The Happening aside), and love that he's doing a straight-up comedy. Sure, there's action in it and he's kind of the straight man, but he's also crazy and goes into funny rages. Gotta love that.
I wish this movie had been Rated R because I love me the F word in comedies, but it's still really funny. And absurd. It's absurdly funny. Is it equal to Anchorman? No, and I don't think it will be even after seeing it 50 times. But it's a great way to spend a hot summer day.
