The Other Guys: Sillyliscious

Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are right up there with Oscar and Felix when it comes to wacky odd couples. They're two New York City misfit cops, each harboring a hysterically funny past that prevents them fitting in at the precinct. Of course their boats get a chance to float and prove that they're not such pathetic losers after all.
"Guys" is both a spoof on the mind numbing action flicks we movie addicts endure each summer, as well as a merciless take on our American way of life.
Wahlberg is an ideal foil for the geeky, number-crunching Ferrell. But he's not all there either. His past transgression has made him the most hated badge in a city where cops are despised by criminals law abiders alike. The Movie Slut will not be a spoiler, but she will say his offense has something to do with Yankee Captain Derek Jeter, who makes a cameo in this deliciously foolish flick.
