|Not Too Impressive - 3/5|
The film had all the ingredients to be another one of Adam McKay's stereotypical production. Will Ferrell has been present in many of his films including Step Brothers and Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy and so I figured he'd be cast in a pretty similar role yet again. I think his role in The Other Guys began as a more understated one than we are used to seeing in a McKay/Ferrell partnership but the humour
displayed was simply a continuation of everything we have seen from the pair. Looking back the script was fairly unoriginal and flat. Again, I cannot pretend I didn't enjoy the film, but I am a sucker from Ferrell and I think the comedy element sucked me in. Compared to the previous films mentioned however this film was certainly the most forgettable.
I think I would only recommend this film to those who enjoyed Step Brothers and similar movies because it only really reaches those who do. If you haven't seen any of these sorts of films this is not the one to start out on because I can imagine it putting people off. Start off with Anchorman.
