EVA MENDES, THE ALL-AROUND PERFECT WIFE IN “THE OTHER GUYS”
“What people don’t know about me is that I will do anything for a laugh,” Mendes says. “Once director Adam McKay and Will Ferrell knew I was game and that I don’t care about looking ridiculous or ugly or silly, it gave them more freedom to go even further with my character. It was a great collaboration.”
“The joke is that no one can believe that this guy Allen has a wife as beautiful as Eva Mendes,” says Ferrell. “Allen's partner, Terry (Mark Wahlberg) can’t quite get over that and it becomes a gag throughout the film. All these attractive women stop in their tracks and are always saying hi to Allen and it’s driving Terry crazy. Allen is so completely oblivious to what is going on – it’s a really fun thing to play.”
But every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stumble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch that could turn into the city’s biggest crime. It’s the opportunity of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff?
