funny but terrible movie
Not what I expected with having so many stars.
I'm a will ferrell fan, but this was a huuuuuuuuge miss in my books. The funny stopped after about 10 minutes into the movie.
just not funny, poor acting
Will Ferrell is the reason I will never watch this. He is the worst actor in history of the world and shame on America for making him a star - says a lot about y'all.
I'm not a Will Ferrell fan but this was a pretty good movie. i really enjoyed it.
Yet another great movie from Will Ferrell, couldn't stop laughing and was surprised to find that Mark Wahlberg was extremely funny and one cannot skip over the great comedic acting of Michael Keating, he was priceless as Capt. Gene. If you want a good laugh see this movie, it's well worth it.
Best comedy I've seen in a very long time. Hilarious. I had no idea Mark Walberg could be so hilarious. Definately Will Farrell's best character yet.
While I am not a huge Wil Ferrell fan, I thought this movie delivered more laughs than anticipated. The rest of the cast puts on a solid performance and I found myself smiling through the majority of the movie.
better rental... had some funny points.
This movie was quite funny, as per usual when you involve Will Ferrell, but if you are not a fan of his style of humor, you will not enjoy this movie...it had it's moments, but it was not a movie I would pay to see again.
its the best movie ever!
Not as good as I thought it would be.
a few laughs
A fair movie
no need for a brain to see this movie.
A different but interesting senario-Worth seeing.
So disappointing. I thought it would have been a lot funnier.
better as a rental or buy it when it hits the bargin bin
It was pretty clever casting to have Mark Wahlberg play the straight man underdog in a buddy cop comedy. A lot of really good lines, bit too long in parts, but all in all enjoyable popcorn fare.
Great combination of comedy and action movie.
best will ferrel movie yet :D
I found this movie far more enjoyable and funny than anticipated. I'm not a huge Ferrel fan and was dragged to the movie by a friend of mine. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the film and both lead actors.
This was a typically funny Will Farrell movie. It was good, kept you interested in the action and lots of gags.
good rental not worth paying to see.
This is an inspired comic pairing.Will Farrell's character of the self-satisfied police desk rider is great geeky fun.His only embarrassment in life is his "ordinary" wife,super-sexy Eva Mendes!It's nice to see Mark Wahlberg put his comic mojo to work.I loved the scene where he double takes and triple takes upon seeing Ferrell's "embarassing" wife.There are all sorts of sight gags and great lines along with the usual mayhem(crashes and explosions)found in comic cop flicks. I really enjoyed this!
No where near as funny as I thought it was going to be.
Hilarious!! Great duo!
Not as funny as I thought, but had some good laughs throughout
Not as funny as anticipated
Some good laughs, more a man movie. My husband loved it.
Movie was fun and action comedy flick, I would give it 3 and half stars.
first time n a long time i liked wil ferells acting. Pretty funny
Wasn't as funny as I thought it would be. Didn't think it was a great performance by either Walbergh or Farrell. Didn't like jackson or Johnson's part in it. There were some good laughs but few and far between
funny but not the best movie
Pretty bad movie as far as comedies go. You'd think Will Ferrell would have done a better job. But Johnson and Jackson do a great job...for the ten minutes they're in it.
Not as funny as I expected, but if you are a fan of Will Farrell or Mark Wahlberg, you will love this movie regardless!!! I laugh just looking at Will Farrell, and love Mark Wahlberg's dry sense of humour, so it worked for me!!! Go see it, but don't have expectations for non-stop laughter...just appreciate the laughs you get!!
Another silly movie
Top class comedy. Excellent performances from the leads and certainly up there with Ferrels best!
Will Ferrell is great as the straight man.
Good movie, lots of laughs. I've seen funnier from Will Farrel, but still a good watch!
