They should set up a special scientific team to study Adam McKay's brain, because there is something gloriously, wildly wrong with it.
The last time I spoke to McKay was for "Anchorman," and since then, it's been interesting to watch his voice getting more and more clear with each film. It was only after seeing "The Other Guys," though, that it all snapped into focus for me, and I was finally able to articulate to him during this interview exactly what it is that I think distinguishes his work from anyone else making movies right now.
Drew McWeeny: Hey, how are you?
Adam McKay: Good, how are you?
Drew: Good. Good to see you again.
Adam: How are you, man? You have one of the great names by the way.
Drew: Oh, thank you.
Adam: McWeeny, man.
Drew: I've found that people don’t forget it.
