The Other Guys - Silent Rogue
 
Who knew Mark Wahlberg could do comedy well?! This film is a lot of fun. Without taking itself too seriously, the film presents a semi-parody of unpopular cops who must become heroes that save the day. Ferrell is finally back on his comedic pedestal after a long time, and Walhberg is surprisingly well attuned to comedic timing.

The film itself was a nice escape from the novel and comic book adaptation saturated industry that may be losing its spark... While the film was neither terribly artistic nor Oscar worthy, it was never designed to be.

I would recommend this film for anyone who doesn't take life too seriously. Like its title, this film is one of the other guys. A-
