PG-13 | | Action, Comedy, Crime
Two mismatched New York City detectives seize an opportunity to step up like the city's top cops, whom they idolize, only things don't quite go as planned.
Just before Terry (Mark Wahlberg) and Allen (Will Ferrell) are forced to turn over their evidence to the Securities and Exchange Commission in New York City, there is a cut scene of a skyline. Since everything takes place in New York City, one assumes that it's the New York City skyline. However, if you look closely, there is the Prudential Tower, located in Boston, Massachusetts, where Mark Wahlberg grew up.
In New York City there's a fine line between law and chaos. On that line live Danson and Highsmith.
When the Captain relieves Alan of his sidearm he holds the pistol with his finger inside the trigger guard. Someone trained in the safe handling of firearms, particularly in law enforcement, would know to treat any weapon as loaded and not handle it by the trigger.
In the unrated version, the joke that Terry tells Allen after the credits finish rolling is different than the one he tells in the theatrical version.
