There should be no doubt that, were they to face off mano a mano, Mark Wahlberg could probably take down Will Ferrell. Though Ferrell has a height advantage and is not exactly unfit (he runs marathons for fun), Wahlberg is a pugnacious fighter who would resort to dirty tricks. But in a verbal sparring match about the abilities of different creatures? No contest, as shown in this new clip from The Other Guys.
We’ve seen a couple of trailers already for the latest collaboration between Ferrell and director Adam McKay, but this is the latest clip to go online, which focuses on the less-than-cohesive partnership between the two police officers.
The Other Guys finds Ferrell and Wahlberg as a pair of cops that generally get forgotten about – they’re not the heroes, like Sam Jackson and Dwayne Johnson’s preening, butch types. They do the grunt work and usually get stuck with desk time.
But the movie will see them taking on a case that no one else wants to handle, a seemingly innocuous crime that turns out to be one of the biggest that New York has seen. Do our two overlooked officers have what it takes to succeed? We’ll find out on September 17.
