A comedy about a veteran NYPD cop whose rare baseball card is stolen. Since it's his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, he recruits his partner to track down the thief, a memorabilia-obsessed gangster.

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.

With the exception of Leo Holder (and obviously Detective Hoitz), all of the people listed as "Traffic Enforcer of the Month" held positions in the movie's Graphics or Locations Departments. See more »
After the Prius is first shot up by the helicopter, there are several large bullet holes in the hood with large areas of white surrounding them (missing paint). Later after the scene at the driving range when it is shot some more, there are now a lot of small bullet holes with smaller areas of missing paint on the hood. See more »

Throughout the credits, graphics and text are shown describing many things, such as the comparisons between CEO salaries and their employees, various fraud schemes and how much they paid out, etc. And all the way at the end of credits, there is an outtake from the Chinese restaurant scene.

I saw the film with my 60-year-old mom and my teenage son and we all cracked up throughout the film--sometimes at different things and to different degrees. That's touching a true cross-section!! Although the latter 1/3 of the movie isn't quite as funny as the first 2/3, it still brought the laughs. I can't imagine why anyone who enjoyed Will Ferrell in Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Step Brothers would give this movie anything below 7 stars.
Maybe the reviewer who said that everyone didn't get the comic references was on to something...although I can't imagine why people wouldn't. There are humorous references about modern technology, sports, pimpin', geriatrics, !! Who can't find something in one of those to laugh at?!? lol
I say DEFINITELY check it out for yourself! I needed a good laugh and I got one...even some true tears of laughter.
