A hidden gem !
A hidden gem ! Thats what I think about this movie while this is definitely not a 6,6/10 movie ! I have seen it many times and I can say that it gets better and better every time . Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg seemed to be a great duo with Michael Keaton as a surprise ! All of those 3 as main characters worked great in their roles giving as a result great laughs ! Michael Keaton was a blast in a role that reminded me a bit of " Mr. Mom " 30 years later .
This film served as great entertainment with its colorful cast and plot twists, while the plot was as good as it can get for this kind of comedy . After watching it for the first time years ago I hoped for a part 2 as the end of it could easily give birth a second part. I hope even after all those years a part 2 will take place so we could see all these great actors once again all together !
Overall, this is a great movie with a mix of a ton of laughs and some action all rolled into one. If you're looking for a pick-me-up or to laugh hysterically, this is undoubtedly the movie for you.
