Faith-Family Film Review: The Other Guys
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
The Other Guys—This occasionally amusing but excessively vulgar action comedy follows the odd-couple antics of an eccentric, paperwork-loving police accountant (Will Ferrell) and his frustrated perforce partner (Mark Wahlberg) — a former street cop unwillingly desk-bound after making a high-profile mistake — as they investigate the financial shenanigans of a British-born banker (Steve Coogan). Director and co-writer Adam McKay’s parody of genre conventions handcuffs its talented cast with relentlessly foul-mouthed dialogue and tiresome bedroom jokes. Considerable, though bloodless, action violence; much sexual humor; a couple of uses of profanity; and pervasive crude and crass language. O — morally offensive. (PG-13) 2010
