By: Jared Counts, August 06th, 2010 12:00 AMAfter famous NYPD supercops Danson and Hightower (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson) fall in the line of duty, most of the force is eager to take their place. When a high-profile crime falls into their laps, the unlikely duo of accountant-turned-detective Gamble (Ferrell) and perpetual hothead Hoitz (Wahlberg) spring into action with disastrous results.
