Why watch this film?
Before becoming the acclaimed filmmaker of 'The Big Short' and 'Vice', Adam McKay was one of the main names in American comedy, with films like 'Anchorman', 'Step Brothers' and 'The Other Guys'. This last one, specifically, tells the story of two bureaucratic policemen (Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg) who are called to action after the death of two colleagues -- in a hilarious special appearance by Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson. From there, we follow the typical action comedy, in which the characters get into typical entanglements of a fictional policeman's day-to-day life, just like 'Brooklyn 99'. It's not an exceptional comedy from McKay, but you can have fun and embark on this comic idea of the backstage of a typical police investigation.
Two mismatched New York City detectives seize an opportunity to step up like the city's top cops, whom they idolize, only things don't quite go as planned.
