The Other Guys Tells It Like It Is

January 17, 2011 by

For a comedy movie, The Other Guys is a shining example of the kind of problems that plague our current financial system. A constant theme throughout is the corruption relationship between big business and government. FULL ARTICLE by James E. Miller

Its anti-conservative regulator, not anti-regulator.

I too was pleasantly surprised when I watched this movie. There were plenty of laughs troughout as well.

Giving a government power will automatically corrupt them and allow major business entities to own it. The only way to avoid a corrupt government is to not have one.

That and the driving range scene with the helicopter was hilarious.

I thought it was insightful that the opening scene was a high speed car chase through NY, resulting in probably 100k’s of damage, all because the “bad guys” were carrying some weed. Now, I don’t use drugs and I do everything I can to encourage my friends not to. But the chase highlights the comical and absurd emphasis law enforcement, and society overall, places on making sure no one smokes a joint.

It was a hilarious movie. Make sure you wear diapers for the helicopter in the driving range scene.

I just watched it and really loved it. I watched some extended version, almost 2 hours long and enjoyed it throughout. The credits were really great too, as well as the after credits scene.
