For the Love of God: Die, Will Ferrell Movie, Die

Posted by Andrew Unterberger on July 17, 2008

OK, so at least this one isn’t about sports, he gets a couple points for at least switching that up (and maybe another point and a half for the use of LCD Soundsystem in the trailer, though even Grand Theft Auto is doing that these days). Still, I have no idea what this movie’s deal is. Are Ferrell and John C. Reilly supposed to actually be retarded, or does this just represent the latest in a staggering series of gradual steps backwards for the mental capacities of Ferrell protagonists? Also–how in the hell is this the first of the Will Ferrell Stupid Guy movies to go straight to a theatrical R rating? They could keep Anchorman, a movie about a misogynistic ladies man in the 70s, to a PG-13, but a movie about two losers who spend an entire movie acting like pre-pubescents goes directly to R?

God help this movie if it has a series of fake commercials to go with it.

    He’s not going to go away until the academy gives him an award, even if it means they have to make a new category for him so as not to sully the other ones.

    It’s quite ingenious really. Maybe afterwards he’ll just pump out one every year and get his special little Will Ferrel Oscar every year. It’ll be like goosebumps but instead of making our children read, it will turn them into unbearable jackasses.

    Please tell us you at least watched the red-band trailer before writing this.

    I see that you have. For shame, man.
