When the cops are busy... Our only hope is...
NYPD detectives Christopher Danson (Johnson) and P.K. Highsmith (Jackson) are the baddest and most beloved cops in New York City. They don't get tattoos, other men get tattoos of them. Two desks over and one back, sit detectives Allen Gamble (Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg). You've seen them in the background of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and eyes closed. They're not heroes, they're "the other guys." But every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stumble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch that could turn into NYC's biggest crime. It's the opportunity of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff?

Clever and amusing take on buddy cop flicks. Good chemistry between 2 leads. Surprised there hasn't been a sequel

Everything you expect from Ferrell, except with much more.

Well... there's a couple of hours of my life I'll never get back.

A truly dreadful film that is lacking in every single area... Bad acting, bad writing, one dimensional characters, a terrible plot, bad lighting and cinematography... I honestly cannot think of a single thing about this movie that I liked.

Will Ferrell is a dreadful one trick pony who acts exactly the same in every single movie he has ever done... really, really badly. You can't even say he's doing it on purpose anymore as he's tried his hand at some more dramatic roles and this absurd personality is still ever present no matter what the role.

I know some people think this is supposed to be a satirical look at these types of movies... but that was only the story thrown around AFTER the movie was seen to be so poor.

There isn't a single noteworthy thing about the film at all.
