    I am not really a fan of Will Ferrell generally, but this movie

    I am not really a fan of Will Ferrell generally, but this movie had me laughing until I was in tears. As most people are probably aware it is a send-up of action movies like "Bad Boys" and it nails the satire perfectly. It isn't a cinematic masterpiece but it has lots of one-liners and really weird off-the-wall situations that make it one of the more unique comedies I've seen the last few years. Will Ferrell surprised me by playing more of a straight-guy role which was refreshing, Mark Wahlberg was brilliant as an impetuous loose-cannon cop, and Michael Keaton and Steve Coogan added a perfect mix of understated hilarity in supporting roles. The only flaw in the movie is that in the second half the plot loses steam and things sort of coast to the finish; there is an extended chase sequence which wouldn't have been out of place in the sort of movie this was spoofing, but which didn't add anything to the humour and seemed to mess up the flow of the movie. If the movie had been 15 minutes shorter it might deserve five stars, but even with the digression it is a solid four. The humour here is consistent and legitimately funny; you will be quoting this movie for years.

    this is a very good movie. Will Ferrell is a good acter in all his movies, but he was exspecialy good in this one.
