It’s late night/early morning trailer time: “The Other Guys”

Jay Fernandez doesn’t appear to be entirely wowed by this trailer. He admit it’s funny but feels it lacks enough of a plot description and “character delineation.” I say, that’s what movies are supposed to be for.

In any case, I guess have a soft spot for the species of dumb/smart comedy practiced by Will Ferrell and his comedy life-partner Adam McKay. This time, the rather clever idea for yet another buddy cop spoof features Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson as a pair of super-competent supercops and Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as, yes, vastly less competent and less super cops. Not every joke lands, but hang on for the bad cop/bad cop scene with Steve Coogan and the explosion at the end.
