Everything Must Go

I just watched Everything Must Go (Dan Rush, 2010). Now you all know who Will Ferrell is, right? Well, I don’t - or didn’t. So I’m watching this situation drama with this not-very-good-looking guy who sposed to be a loser but isn’t acting like one (or anything else) and who’s clearly going to get it on with the chick across the street. And I’m wondering how this non-actor got cast in a dramatic role, and why the whole thing is definitely not working at all. When it’s over, I look it up, and find I’m almost certainly the only person on the planet who watched a whole Will Ferrell film without having the slightest idea who he is. And I’m here to tell you he cannot act. Not the tiniest bit.

Don’t bother stepping up to Hamlet, Will: just go back to whatever passes for comedy in the US of A.
