The Other Guys

The Other Guys, courtesy of director Adam McKay, is a funny buddy movie with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as mismatched desk jockeys living in the shadow of supercops Samuel Jackson and The Rock, until something happens…

Needless to say, the duo have to overcome their own deficiencies and natural antipathy to crack the big case involving corrupt tycoon Steve Coogan. The fun here lies in the interplay, not only between Ferrell (in particularly fine form) and Wahlberg, but Eva Mendes as Ferrell’s “ball and chain” and an excellent turn by Michael Keaton as the beleaguered police captain. It’s been a while since Keaton has had such a good role in such a high-profile movie. Welcome back.

    That's good that people can take the mortgage loans moreover, this opens up completely new chances.
