Director: Adam McKay. Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Steve Coogan, Damon Wayans Jr. 107 min. Rated PG-13. Comedy.
A pairing of Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg ... for a buddy-cop comedy? Strangely, it works, and even stranger, Wahlberg may have some comedic talent. As always, great moments arise when Ferrell is yelling (no one forgets "Meatloaf!"), but surprisingly, the movie's best comic moments were the ones with Eva Mendes present. A notch higher than many Will Ferrell comedies.
