Action, Comedy
When I first heard Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg would be pairing up in a film by director Adam McKay (Anchorman), I thought it was a brilliant idea. Ferrell always makes me laugh, and Wahlberg killed me in I Heart Huckabees, so it seemed like a perfect pairing—which it is. They play two cops trying to take down a financial adviser and criminal (Steve Coogan) in New York City while dealing with personal issues. Wahlberg’s cop has been forced to sit behind a desk after putting a bullet in a New York icon, while Ferrell’s cop went into law-enforcement accounting after some shady dealings in college. The film provides constant silliness, with each actor responsible for an equal amount of laughs. McKay mixes in humor that is way out there; I love the bit where homeless people are constantly trying to have sex parties in Ferrell’s Prius. This is easily one of the year’s funniest movies, and another triumph for McKay.
