I said on the radio last Friday this upcoming summer movie slate is going to suck the sweat of a dead man’s balls and I’m not budging from that stance. Still, there are some interesting specks of hope dotting the cinematic landscape from May to August. One of those is The Other Guys, directed and co-written by Adam McKay (the dude behind Anchorman, Talladega Nights and Step Brothers), and stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne “Don’t Call Me the Rock” Johnson, Eva Mendes, Anne Heche, Michael Keaton and Steve Coogan. I don’t know about you, but that’s a lot of talent and definitely piques my interest. I especially like seeing the stonefaced Wahlberg in self-depreciating roles.
Check out the trailer and let me know what you think – yay or nay?
