The Other Guys may not hit a homerun in the comedy department but as someone who hasn’t been the biggest Will Ferrell fan throughout his star-making career, I thought it was funny enough from beginning to end. The DVD itself doesn’t have much to offer in terms of features while the audio and video transfers are adequate when compared against other newer DVD releases.
The Spirit is a sad misstep of a film big on style – even if it is copied almost exactly from Sin City – but short on story. I know what Miller was going after with the campy nature but what might look good on the page (screenplay or comic book) may not translate too well on the screen. The jokes weren’t funny and the acting, when it not atrocious, was way over-the-top not surprisingly headlined by Samuel L. Jackson.
