02.05.11Netflix To be honest I'm a bit disappointed by this. It had some pretty consistent absurd humor through most of it but overall there was a real weird mix between straight cop action, typical Will Ferrell comedy, and weird bad satire like Hot Fuzz or something. And then during the end credits, there's a random infographic about the death of middle class. The infographic really killed it for me. What a perfect way to end a silly comedy... with cold sobering facts about the rich getting richer and the rest of the country going down the shitter. Was I thinking to myself half-way through "Gee, you know I'm enjoying this so far but it's missing a certain... Michael Moore quality that would really put it over the top."

A lot of other stuff was pretty hilarious though. I thought Wahlberg did a decent job playing against type, and loved his constant radical assumptions (along with Ferrell's straight retorts like "where are you getting that!?") Also, the peacock thing was funny until they put a crappy CG bird in the last scene. And Ferrell's deconstruction of the lion attacking the tuna was great. Keaton's great in a jacked up sort of way. Really the first three quarters I liked a lot.

Damn ending.
