Will Ferrell has the same stupid facial expression in all of his stupid "comedy" movies. HE usually is the flop, not the movie as much!

I'd prefer to go see a Jim Carrey movie if I want real comedy!

Elf was GREAT. Its going to be a Christmas classic we can count on seeing every year just like "A Christmas Story".

I really liked Ferrell in:

Elf
Legend Of Ricky Bobby
Old School

But thats about it that I can think of.

When did he ever do good work? In all of these years, I havn't seen anything good by Will Ferrell, except maybe his GWB post 911 speech.

I have never understood Will Ferrell's appeal. I just don't get it. He can recite lines, but that doesn't make one an actor. I don't find him funny in the least. I didn't like him on SNL, I'm embarrassed for him every time he shows up on a talk show (has he no shame at all?) and haven't liked him in any of the movies I've watched. Or, I should say "tried" to watch. I haven't been able to get more than 30 minutes in before turning them off.

The only one which I found marginally interesting was Stranger Than Fiction. It was semi-serious and he wasn't able to do as much mugging for the camera. Still, the only reason I could stomach him in that movie was because I found the premise interesting. If I wanted to see how it ended, I was forced to tolerate him and his *couch*acting*cough*.

King of flops? Sounds about right to me.
