The new cop buddy comedy The Other Guys starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg opened at number one in its first week of release, grossing 35.6 million and knocking Inception to the number two spot. The smart casting of leads Ferrell and Wahlberg and their hilarious performances set this twosome up for a solid win at the box office. But The Other Guys ‘other’ duo, the musical pairing of Cee-Lo Green and actress Eva Mendes (who also does double duty as Ferrell’s wife in the movie) not only supply some soundtrack for the laffer with the single, “Pimps Don’t Cry” but they also help to bring home the funny long after you’ve left the theater. —Ronke Idowu Reeves
