It’s entirely possible that no one has ever crossed over from the realm of pop music into film more thoroughly than Mark Wahlberg. Back in the days when he was fronting Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, it might have been hard to believe that he’d grow to be one of Hollywood’s most enduring stars, as well as one of its most persistent oddballs. This week he stars opposite Will Ferrell in the Adam McKay-helmed comedy The Other Guys, and we’ll be reviewing it alongside two very different Wahlberg flicks, avid O. Russell’s philosophical comedy I Heart Huckabees and the 1996 family-values thriller Fear.
