YMMV / The Other Guys

  • Acceptable Targets: Gamble's cop car is a Prius, which Hoitz derides, saying he "feels like he's riding around in a vagina".
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Will Ferrell is a software expert and The Smart Guy of the pair; in his next movie, he's Megamind.
    • This clip from the Oscars a few years back, when Will Ferrell addresses Mark Wahlberg.
    • Mark Wahlberg as a police officer Dignam in The Departed says "I'm the guy who does his job, you must be the other guy".
    • In 2014, Mark Wahlberg congratulated Derek Jeter for his career. One can only wonder if he apologized for shooting him too.
    • Ershon says that he believes a story should start at the end, then move to the beginning and eventually move back to the end. This is the same narrative pattern of Megamind
  • Just Here for Godzilla:
    • Admit it, some of you watched it for the scene where the Rock and Samuel L. Jackson leap off of a building, didn't you?
    • Others just wanted to see Derek Jeter get shot.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Desk pop is used in many circles for a negligent discharge of a firearm.
    • Many New York Yankees fans have took to calling Derek Jeter a "bi-racial angel" after this film came out. After he retired, they passed the moniker onto outfielder Aaron Judge.
  • Shocking Swerve: The death of Johnson's and Jackson's characters. In a movie that's gratuitously over the top, including shooting down an attack chopper with golf balls, the biggest Shyamalanian twist comes when you expect something impossible to happen and it doesn't happen.
