The Other Guys Premiere with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg

The stars were in town for "The Other Premiere of The Other Guys," a fan-oriented movie premiere that St. Louis won via Facebook. The event also featured local celebrities such as Mayor Francis Slay and Ozzie Smith, as well as a surprise appearance from the legendary boxing promoter Don King and a NFL-sized Buddy Elf.
