Student Pick: The Other Guys directed by Adam McKay
Energetic and charismatic senior Michael Klein (’13) loves watching movies but recently has discovered the best movie on the market.
“The Other Guys is my favorite movie because it was so funny it made me cry,” said the senior.
The Other Guys is about two up and coming police officers who land an opportunity in a high-profile case while following in the footsteps of the toughest and strongest detectives in New York City, Christopher Danson (Dwayne Johnson) and P. K. Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) . Throughout, the movie New York city detectives Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) just want their chance in the limelight to make a big arrest and get a medal as well.
“I enjoyed the irony of the two worst cops actually getting the bad guys in the end of the movie,” Michael said.
Michael continued by saying, “My favorite part was when Allen gives Terry a mug that says “Female Body Inspector, and then [Mark] throws it out the window.”
The Other Guys sounds like an intriguing and comical movie to share with friends and/or family.
