Storyline

Terry Hoitz's past mistakes in the line of duty and Allen Gamble's reluctance to take risks have landed them the roles of the "Other Guys", disgraced New York City police detectives relegated to filling out paperwork for cocky hero cops Danson and Highsmith. The mismatched duo must look past their differences when they take on a high-profile investigation of shady capitalist David Ershon and attempt to fill the shoes of the notoriously reckless officers they idolize. Written by The Massie Twins

Love It
29 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

This movie is very stupid.... but I love it! Will Ferral and Mark Wahlberg are both hilarious in this. People tell me this movie is bad all the time... but I don't care. This is a movie that I watch over and over and over and over and over again and don't get tired of it. I watch it constantly while trying to go to sleep. I think I have seen this movie more than any other living person. I have memorized most of the movie (included the soundtrack) and can't get enough of it. I enjoy most of the characters in the movie and think its great. I would definitely recommend this film to most people. It's funny, cool, and awesome. WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
