THE OTHER GUYS starts funny and ends preachy (review)

Rating:  (Passable)

Will Ferrell is a funny guy, and watching him play a 'character' is always enjoyable. If you like loud noises, people yelling at each other, and good physical comedy, The Other Guys provides them in abundance during its first half. Sadly, while it starts out hilarious, the movie slowly loses its funny in favor of bullets, car chases, explosions, and a stupid money laundering plot. There will be a lot of people who like this movie, but few will be impressed by anything in the last 45 of its 107 minute runtime. What happened? Did they just run out of ideas? I can't say I feel cheated or ripped off, but Will Ferrell and Adam McKay can do better.

I remember listening to Will Ferrell and Adam McKay on the unrated Anchorman DVD, and it still ranks as one of the best and most irrelevant commentary tracks I've ever heard. This reminds me of how they went on about a special lens they used in a single shot of Anchorman that cost them $50,000--it was a shot of Will Ferrell's mustache. To learn about the extensive Maxwell VHS filming technique and laborious post-production process for their new comedy, The Other Guys, check out the video below.
