Everything Must Go (3 Out of 5 Graves)
What are you to do on a weekend night when your significant other isn’t feeling well and your looking for something to do. Why, you go to iTunes and look for something that looks interesting.
We are both Will Ferrell Fans, and given that the movie got decent reviews we thought it was a no brainer. Will Ferrel delivers the goods, but this movie was so badly advertised it gets a punch in the nuts which drops its score from what would have been a 4 to a 3.
The problem was that it was billed as a comedy/drama. But there was very little comedy in it. It was a good movie, but I wouldn’t have felt betrayed if they just called it a drama. There are multiple times wehre Will Ferrell gives an awesome performance, but I keep waiting for a punchline that doesn’t come. He plays it straight, and does an awesome job at it. It just wasn’t what we were expecting.
It doesn’t help that while he is an amazing actor, the subject matter is pretty damn sad. It is just not very uplifting. Next time call it a drama and don’t piss me off.
