Which of These The Other Guys Quotes Made You Laugh Hard?

The Other Guys might not be a satire or mockumentary movie. But, with the hilarious mannerisms and attitude of the characters, it is still definitely worth watching. It offers a fresh angle of comedy that few of us get to explore.

Being a cop is a dangerous and serious career path. But, the movie took on a more comedic approach to entertain us with the protagonists’ gripping action and dry jokes. With Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, who are both veteran comedy actors, we are surely presented with a good dose of police comedy.

We all know how our police officers are the modern-day superheroes that inspire many of us to do good. But, we also must remember that they are just people who make mistakes and have flaws. Funnily, The Other Guys exposes the humane and weak sides of cops that will make you see them in a whole new light.

Hopefully, these quotes were able to cheer you up today. Make a mental note of your favorites whenever you find yourself in need of a good laugh.
