Still shot from the movie: The Other Guys.

The Other Guys

Some cops are big, tough and scary, like Highsmith and Danson (Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson). Then there are the other guys, the ones who do the paper work. Sadly, Detectives Allen Gamble and Terry Hoitz (Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg) fit in the later category. Tired of pushing pencils, the pair decides to become real policemen -- with dangerous results for both the criminals and themselves. Get the movie review and more. »
