A second viewing has confirmed that The Other Guys is brilliant. It's packed with satire, in-jokes and parody which will amuse anyone who loves those big Hollywood buddy-cop movies of the 80s and 90s. If you loved what they did with Hot Fuzz a couple of years back then you'll get a kick out of this too. For some reason I kept thinking about Kevin Smith's atrocious "Cop Out". This Other Guys accomplishes what Smith set out to achieve but failed dismally. There's even a brief scene which puts the characters court side at a basketball game... close observation will find that sitting two seats down from Will Ferrell is Tracy Morgan (from Cop Out). One wonders what is running through his mind and whether Kevin Smith sent him along to take notes? The Other Guys is one of the best comedies in a while and proves to be a winning team effort for Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay who previous worked together on Anchorman, Talladega Nights & Step Brothers.
