The Other Guys- -
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?
The Other Guys is about two New York City detectives who decide to try to step up to be like two other cops that they idolize. They get an opportunity to break what could turn into one of New Yorkäó»s biggest crime, if they do not mess it up. It reminds me a lot of Beverly Hills Cop both in content, humor, and plot. It is in the style of a police shoot äóÖem up. It has flying car jumps, dramatic crashes and too many bullets to count.
It is rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content. It also contains bad language, and as one would expect from the action comedy about this type of subject, violence and drug related material. It is not a movie for small children under the age of 13. Quite frankly, it is an adult movie, but did not go far enough to earn the rating according to the MPAA. I think that it is just shy of an R.
