This doesn't sound like a problem if you're Will Ferrel.
 
2010-11-05 04:39:41 PM
Somebody pays him?
 
2010-11-05 04:40:31 PM
People would pay $3.35 to see one of his movies?

Read the bottom. Someone paid $81 to see Shia Lebouf. $3.35 sounds like a bargain.

Well, I liked him in "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" but that was about it. Dude plays the same idiot manchild in everything he's in and gets paid for it. Yeah, some of the hate is jealousy, but the rest is annoyance when he shows up onscreen.

He was Marshal Willenholly. He had some funny moments, but was still the same idiot manchild.

He's a great side character and in small doses. I can't stand him headlining because he, as you say, plays the same loud, obnoxious, screaming twat. Like Jack Black.

He was, however, quite good in Stranger Than Fiction.
 
2010-11-05 04:59:41 PM
Really? As far as I can tell, he was only in two movies this year. One a standard cop movie and one that appears to be a semi-serious drama that I'm just now hearing about.
 
2010-11-05 05:11:41 PM
Not funny. Never was funny.
 
2010-11-05 05:15:33 PM
It's all about supply and demand. If you want somebody to play Will Farrell in your movie, there aren't many places you can go.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: Not funny. Never was funny.

Amen

I find Will Ferrell to be painfully unfunny.

At the same time, I will say that he was rather good in Stranger Than Fiction... in those scenes in which he wasn't braying like a jackass, that is.

Exactly. I'm sure he's crying himself to sleep on a pile of cash and hookers.

Will Ferrell shows up on time, knows his lines, improvs pretty well and follow direction.

He is the Robert Downey Jr. of the Patton Oswalt sphere of comedy.
 
2010-11-05 06:22:56 PM
Wait. We're hating Will Ferrell now? What about Zack Galifinakis? Can I still like him or has the fark collective already weighed in?

Hello arschlov! I'd like to be the first to welcome you to 2004. I can't wait for Bush to be out of office. There's no way he'll win another term.
 
2010-11-05 06:41:32 PM
C'mon, he's had plenty of funny moments: SNL (Neil Diamond, Cowbell, etc.), Wedding Crashers, Eastbound and Down, Anchorman.
 
2010-11-05 06:42:15 PM
Well I like him
so there
 
2010-11-05 06:45:59 PM
You'd have to pay me to see one of his movies, with the attendant Clockwork Orange scientist making me watch, all while screaming.

SNL (Neil Diamond, Cowbell, etc.
Wasn't funny in it.

Wedding Crashers
Wasn't funny in it.

Eastbound and Down
Never saw it.

Anchorman
1. Wasn't as funny as people were telling me.
2. He wasn't funny in it.

Elf.
Wasn't funny in it.

Old School
Wasn't funny in it.

Bewitched
wasn't funny in that horrible turd of a movie.

Zoolander.
Was mildly funny.

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Was mildly funny.

Night at the Roxbury
Horribly unfunny in a steaming shiat sandwich movie.

Ladies Man
Wasn't funny in it.


There's more than that of course but those were the ones I could think of off the top of my head. In every single one of those movies though, he plays an idiot manchild who yells. Maybe it's because I don't like the idiot manchild character, but it could also be that he's just not funny.

I have funny moments when I take a dump, but I don't see any big money coming my way, just saying....

My movie selection process:
a: Is Will Ferrell in the movie?
b: Is Mike Meyers in the movie?
c: IS Adam Sandler in the movie?

If any of of a, b, or c are true, then I will not see the movie.

The only thing I've seen where I've liked him:

Elf.

His man-child persona was perfect for that role.

Hmmm pretty sure you just stereotyped him as the same character in every movie/show.

T'wasn't me. Himself, his agent, and various writers and directors did that for me.

Will ferrel is funny. That is all. I suspect many of the haters simply don't enjoy low-brow humor.

Did you guys find the jeopardy snl skits boring too?

I mean, its entirely possible that it isn't HIM you guys all hate, but in fact that type of comedy period. I personally prefer the arrested development type, but I wouldn't sit around hating on a single actor because I dislike a genre.

Nah, the real backlash didn't start until '05 when he was in that Bewitched movie (along with like 5 other movies that year).
 
2010-11-06 01:30:35 AM
Will Ferrell isn't an Oscar winning actor, but he's a helluva lot funnier than a lot of "stars" out there right now, and has outlasted a lot of guys in recent years.

Jack Black? Unfunny and had finally started fading, but appears to be attempting to hang on for dear life.

That guy that plays Stiffler in every movie? Yeah.

Zach Gal..Gali..Gala..that guy from the Hangover. He's just awful. If he were a cereal, he'd be Grape Nuts. That's how not funny he is.

Seth Rogen? Please.

Justin Long? C-lister at best.

If Will Ferrell ISN'T funny...then who is? Who's out there right now that's legitimately funny? Jason Segel? Then who?
