DVD: The Other Guys (12)

Reviewed by Ben Walsh

A droll Mark Wahlberg stars alongside the eternally creepy looking Will Ferrell in this occasionally inspired buddy- movie spoof.

Wahlberg and Ferrell are mismatched cops, Gamble and Hoitz, who are tied to desk jobs, while unhinged police mavericks (Samuel L Jackson and The Rock) are heroically tearing up New York City. Gamble is happy tapping away on his keyboard, while frustrated Hoitz believes he's "a peacock, you gotta let me fly". However, these cop underdogs – the other guys – get their chance to do real police work (and to bond, Lethal Weapon style) when Gamble unearths some financial skullduggery. Very silly.
