Set on the streets of New York City, the “buddy-cop” comedy boasts a star-studded cast including the likes of Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Samuel L. Jackson, and Eva Mendes.  Here is a quick synopsis of the plot:

When a forensic accountant and a trigger-happy detective, both of whom idolize the city’s top cops, get a chance to step up and improve upon their “B team” status, things don’t quite go as planned.

Marky Mark just can’t get enough of the neighborhood, what with his How to Make it in America filming seemingly every other day. Be sure to send us your pictures of the cast in action!
