Have you ever seen The Other Guys and thought to yourself:

"Wow, that movie has SO MUCH POTENTIAL to be a really, really good buddy cop movie but it's bogged down by:
  • truly terrible jokes that were clearly ad-libbed on the spot
  • racism, homophobia, and misogyny from our "loveable" main characters
  • unrealistic action in an otherwise realistic world (don't worry, I left Danson and Highsmith alone)
  • wildly fluctuating levels of intelligence for the main characters
If you have had any of these thoughts (or even if you haven't) then I think you'll really like this edit!

I wanted to make this into the "buddy cop movie set against the Ponzi schemes of the 2000's" that it was meant to be, and I believe I have.
Allen and Terry's relationship now grows slowly but surely, coming to rely on each other as partners at an even pace.
Many of the extreme jokes are gone, the characters act more like normal people, and they're actually good men we can root for.
