actor: Will Ferrell

Step Brothers

July 25, 2008
This movie produces some very funny moments, with Brennan (Will Ferrell) and Dale (John C. Reilly) both acting like 12-year olds instead of their age, which happens to be forty. They don Chewbacca masks from "Star Wars" and act like pirates and get upset at each other like kids and have fun [...]

Semi-Pro

February 29, 2008
The Titanic is mentioned at the very end of this movie. They should have had the comment at the beginning of the film, because this one sure sinks. It is ninety minutes of mindless humor, with the emphasis on the word mindless. There are so many profanities I finally gave up trying to count. The [...]

Blades of Glory

March 30, 2007
If you like watching figure skating and admire the talent and athleticism of the sport's skaters then this film may not be for you. If you cringe at the image of two male skaters dancing/skating together at times quite intimately then this film is definitely not for you. The makers of this film go [...]

Stranger Than Fiction

November 10, 2006
This film was not your typical Will Ferrell movie. Unlike most of his other comedies, this is dark and more like a tragedy. In fact the question that keeps haunting Harold Crick is whether his life is a comedy or a tragedy. Lessons can be learned such as the importance of living life rather [...]

Curious George

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is a delightful movie. It made me laugh and I haven't been a kid in quite some time! They don't make 'em like this anymore. George's antics are comical, although he never intentionally gets into trouble. For example, he gets hold of too many balloons at once and is soon airborne, with the man [...]

The Producers (2005)

December 25, 2005
"The Producers" is a racy film with a capital "R." There are too many sexual references to remember them all. During the screening I attended I saw a mother walking out with her teenaged daughter. This is not a film for families. There is also a "flipping off" scene in which the characters use [...]

Bewitched

June 24, 2005
Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman do an excellent job in their roles. Ferrell portrays a very self centered actor, Jack Wyatt, whose primary thoughts and actions are about him. Kidman plays Isabel Bigelow, a witch who is trying to be "normal" by putting her supernatural abilities on hold. She wants a [...]

Kicking and Screaming

May 13, 2005
This movie was similar to “Little Giants,” a 1994 film where a dad (Rick Moranis) started a football team with kids who weren’t good enough to play on his brother’s team who they eventually faced in the finals. Will Ferrell is his classic self and he combines with Mike Ditka (who makes his [...]

Melinda and Melinda

April 8, 2005
I enjoyed how this movie was approached, presenting the two stories as a split narrative. Mr. Allen also shows his creativeness through how his characters endure many similar situations in each narrative. However, other than some Will Ferrell antics I did not find this film very entertaining. This [...]

Elf

He is raised as an elf but as the years pass it becomes obvious to all except himself that he is really a man. The day comes for Buddy to leave the North Pole and he travels to New York and finds his real [...]
