In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
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.

The Massie Twins
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 »
At one point Allen Gamble states that this is the second time he has ever fired his weapon, but earlier on when they're at the bar drinking there are multiple still shots of him discharging a firearm in the bar. However, at the time of the bar scene, he still had the wooden gun so he must have been shooting Terry's gun, thus still being able to correctly say he'd only shot his own gun twice. See more »
In New York City there's a fine line between law and chaos. On that line live Danson and Highsmith.

In the unrated version, the joke that Terry tells Allen after the credits finish rolling is different than the one he tells in the theatrical version. See more »
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.
