'The Other Guys'


Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg make an enjoyable odd-couple team in this action-comedy about a couple of New York police detectives who usually don't get the big cases. That changes when the preferred duo ( Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson) is taken out of commission, giving the other two their moment.

Whether they can step up to it is another question. Michael Keaton plays their boss, and Eva Mendes is improbably (but amusingly) cast as Ferrell's wife by director and co-writer Adam McKay, Ferrell's frequent collaborator. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; deleted and extended scenes. *** (PG-13 and unrated versions: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
