Oh man, guys, I saw this movie weeks ago. What was it even about? I really should have written this review earlier, but I’ve been so busy, you guys. Man, you guys.
Uh, okay, so there’s Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, and Will Ferrell is like this dumb guy, and Mark Wahlberg is like an angry guy? I think? Or maybe he was just kind of depressed? No, I think he was really angry for some reason. And there was some sort of crime that I think was Bernie Madoff-related? Was that it? All I know is that the end credits had a lot of facts, about white collar crime and the economy, so apparently the movie had a point of some sort about corruption and complicity and… I don’t know.
The whole thing was kind of ramshackle, like this was Adam McKay’s Burn After Reading, or something. There were some really hilarious moments, but now I can’t remember them, like at all.
Oh! Will Ferrell had a really hot wife who was also a doctor and he kept putting her down because he was afraid if she realized how much better than him she was she would leave him. That was kind of funny, but also kind of a real thing that abusive guys do to their wives all the time so in that sense it kind of wasn’t funny at all.
Oh man, what else? Uh, this movie had Sabrina’s friend from Sabrina the Teenage Witch in it. No, not the weird one from Season 1, the insecure one from Season 2. I think her name was Valerie? She was also on a show on the WB that lasted like a season that I liked called Grosse Pointe, and she was on How I Met Your Mother last season as the girl Ted goes on two dates with. What am I talking about? That doesn’t matter. Anyway, I thought her part of The Other Guys was funny. She plays Mark Wahlberg’s ex-girlfriend— or wife? — and she liked to do ballet, even though Mark Wahlberg thought she was a stripper. I don’t know, it made sense in the movie. Well, it didn’t really, but it was funny. I thought it was funny.
Oh, and Michael Keaton was the boss.
Mark Wahlberg shot someone! That’s right! And that’s why everyone made fun of him, because he shot… somebody. A famous person? I think?
I don’t know, you guys, I think I really enjoyed this kind of, but I can’t really recommend it. It definitely seemed like everyone involved was having a good time. I mean, it probably seemed that way, I don’t really remember what it seemed like.
I think Vin Diesel was in this?
