I am supposed to pack my stuff into my suitcase and whatnot, but I just have too much to do and the days are going by too fast for me to do everything that I need to do before I go back to my hometown!

Once I realize I am stressed, I just need to fight back and relax myself immediately. Well, I just finished watching The Other Guys DVD! Directed by Adam McKay, this hilarious film follows the tale of two NYPD detectives or heroes who stumble upon the case of a lifetime. Jam-packed with irresistible characters and big laughs, the Other Guys DVD is well worth a watch.

Danson (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) and Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) are memorable in a black humor kind of way, but their appearances were brief.



Well, this is not their movie. The leads are actually the misfit detectives Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) – not the daredevil, pistol-packin' ones but "the other guys" who suddenly get a chance to shine when they investigate a huge embezzlement scandal.



However, can The Other Guys solve the case without killing each other and destroying NYC in the process?

The highlights include Allen taking Terry home to meet his wife who, he warns, is a big old lady. The wife turns out to be the simply smoking Eva Mendes!

Eva Mendes plays Allen Gamble's inexplicably hot wife Dr Sheila Ramos Gamble.


His reaction on meeting Dr Sheila Ramos Gamble is hilariously disbelieving. The laughs dry up, however, once the silly heroics kick in, the mayhem and car chases reducing it to exactly the formulaic twaddle it set out to tease. The silly humor is hit-and-miss, but when it works, it is very funny.

If you liked Cop Out, The Naked Gun film series, I guess you'll like this.

Okay, it's packing time!
