Buddy cop films are all the same. There, we said it. It doesn’t take away our love for them — but who can deny that they often have overwhelmingly similar plots? In both of these buddy cop films, two cops are complete opposites (usually one serious and one silly) have to work together on a case. They start out hating each other and then grow to love one another as partners and friends. Sure, it’s predictable, but both films make us laugh and The Other Guys even introduced us to the undying legacy of Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlburg making movies together!
