The Other Guys is a great movie. However,for a detective movie,it more resembles the TV police reality show COPS rather than most other detective movies or a TV mystery series. See it at your own risk.
Gondry has a reputation as a gimmicky filmmaker - if you saw the half-baked Be Kind Rewind, you'd probably agree with that sentiment - but Eternal Sunshine is one of the most emotionally honest films I've ever seen. So freakin' good.
