SummaryAdd a Summary
When the two head policemen in the NYPD die in the line of duty, it is up to two misfits, a nerd and a policeman who shot Derek Jeter, to step up. They are quickly lapped by two policemen who are actually bad cops, but given their low status, the misfits cannot overtake them... until they accidentally find a case about a ponzi scheme, that has slid right under everyone else's nose. The two take on this tough case and battle through relationship turmoil, turmoil within the NYPD, and turmoil with the bad guys. The Other Guys is a great movie that shows that sometimes the laughingstocks are the ones that will win.
