NYPD Detectives Christopher Danson and P.K. are the baddest and most beloved cops in New York City. They don't get tattoos - other men get tattoos of them. Two desks over and one back, sit Detectives Allen Gamble and Terry Hoitz. You've seen them in the background of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and eyes closed. They're not heroes - they're "the Other Guys. But every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stumble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch that could turn into New York City's biggest crime. It's the opportunity of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff?

Misfit NYPD detectives Gamble and Hoitz (Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg) are sentenced to life behind the desk. They hate each other and the monotony of their meaningless jobs, as they're forced to live in the shadow of the two biggest and most badass cops on the force (Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson). But when those guys go down for the count, opportunity knocks for Gamble and Hoitz. Stumbling onto what could be one of the biggest crimes in years, can The Other Guys step up their game to solve the case without killing each other and destroying NYC in the process?Read More
As predicted last week, director Christopher Nolan's Inception was finally knocked out of the top spot after almost a month by newcomers The Other Guys. But with three highly anticipated new movies entering the box office this weekend including the testosterone-filled action movie The Expendables, the comic book based rock-opera Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World and the Julia Roberts-vehicle Eat, Pray, Love, which is based on the popular book, it was inevitable that the buddy-cop comedy would fall after only a week on top of the charts.
Debuting at number one this week is the new action film The Expendables from writer/director and star Sylvester Stallone. Besides Stallone, the film stars an array of the toughest action stars from several different decades including Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film opened on 3,270 screens and earned about $10,713 on each for an opening weekend total of $35 million. That's not bad considering the films $82 million production budget.Read More
As predicted, director Christopher Nolan's Inception defeated the new Steve Carell comedy Dinner for Schmucks and the family film Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore last weekend to take the number one spot at the box office for a third week in a row. But this weekend Nolan's Oscar-caliber movie was no match for the much-talked-about new buddy-cop comedy The Other Guys, which knocked the buzz-worthy film out of the top spot for the first time in almost a month.
Debuting at number one this week is the buddy-cop action/comedy film The Other Guys starring Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Michael Keaton and Eva Mendes. The film opened on 3,651 screens and earned about $9,751 on each for an opening weekend total of $35.6 million. While the film had an excellent opening weekend it will still need to still attract audiences for a few more weeks in order to earn back all its entire $85 million production budget.Read More
As predicted last week, the new Steve Carell comedy Dinner for Schmucks and the family film Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore were no match for director Christopher Nolan's Inception, which took the top spot at the box office for a third week in a row. But can the buzz-worthy film, which is already garnering Oscar consideration, be able to defend its crown once again this week against newcomers like the buddy-cop comedy The Other Guys or the dance film Step Up 3D?
Predicted to drop one place to number two for the first time in almost a month is Inception, the long awaited sci-fi action thriller from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight). The film stars an incredible cast of actors including Oscar nominees Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page and Ken Watanabe, Oscar winners Marion Cotillard and Michael Caine, as well as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, and Lukas Haas. Last weekend the film dropped 35.6% from the previous week and was seen on 247 less screens, but it still managed to earn roughly $7,763 in each of its 3,545 theaters for a weekend total of $27.5 million. Now in just three weeks the film has earned $193.3 million, which surpasses its purported $160 million production budget. It's predicted to add an additional $19.1 million to its total earnings this weekend at the box office.Read More
