The Other Guys ★★★★½

rewatched the next day. so good lol.

the only part that needs to be cut down is the sequence with eva mendes towards the end when they're sending messages back and forth, even though she is a comedic genius in every scene.

this is just a really great example of a comedy where every line works as a joke, but the script doesnt bend over backwards to allow jokes in, it just manages to find something really fucking funny for every line of dialogue.

i also love weird high concept or like abstract bits like two characters inexplicably jumping to their death, and making a joke about how that is total nonsense but in the world is just accepted as fact.
