Did you enjoy watching Mark Wahlberg flex his very attractive funny muscles in Date Night this weekend? Well, you’re lucky: The actor stars alongside Will Ferrell in Columbia’s August comedy, The Other Guys. The trailer’s just been released, and I’ll tell ya, I’m getting the same confused feeling I get when I wake up eating a big, red candle. I mean, I know a thing or two about the police world. (I worked with my college’s innocence project…oh, who am I kidding? I get most of my legal knowledge from numerous episodes of Law & Order.) But I can’t for the life of me figure out what kind of cops Ferrell and Wahlberg are supposed to be. As well as what kind of case they’re working on.
But honestly, when it comes to Ferrell and director/frequent collaborator Adam McKay, does it really matter? I would still see the film, even if the trailer stunk more than a whole wheel of cheese.
What do you think of the trailer, PopWatchers? Also, do you, like me, find it interesting how much taller Ferrell is than Wahlberg?
