Following on from the genuinely hilarious moving poster a few weeks ago, the first trailer for The Other Guys
is online now and can be found here: http://www.traileraddict.com/trailer/the-other-guys/trailer
. So go there and look because I can't for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong with this embedding nonsense.
It looks like it could be very funny - the trailer is certainly more promising than some of Ferrell's other comedies, and easily matches director Adam McKay's previous best (Anchorman
) in the laughs per trailer stakes. Samuel L Jackson is always brilliant in comedy mode and Steve Coogan even gets a few giggles. The downside is that Ferrell does a lot of his trademark irritating shouting, something that really needs to be reigned in this time around. Then again, any excuse to see Dwayne Johnson in something that's not made by Disney is always a plus.
