Hijinks Movie Reviews: The Other Guys

I mentioned last week in my review of The Expendables that my wife had received some free movie passes and we’d planned to use them for that movie but I ended up on a guy’s night instead, you remember that? Well, since we missed that one, we decided instead to use them on The Other Guys because we’d heard so many good reviews of the movie from friends.

I went in with very low expectations because so many of Will Ferrell’s movies have been downright terrible lately. His movies have turned into extended versions of the commercials because all the funny parts fit into the trailer.

  • George Steinbrenner passed away this week after having a massive heart attack on Tuesday. In 37-plus seasons as owner, Steinbrenner led the Yankees to seven World Series championships, 11 American League pennants and 16 AL East titles. He purchased the Yankees, now valued at $1.6 billion, for about $10 million in 1973.
  • In what is probably the worst rule in sports, the National League locked up home field advantage in the World Series by winning the All-Star game, for the first time since 1996, 3-1.

And… that’s about it. There were a few good laughs at the ESPY’s though, I’ll include those videos after the jump. Continue reading T.W.I.S.T. for July 11-17
