The Will Ferrell Appreciation Society
« Reply #45 on: May 25, 2005, 03:31 PM »
So, before the RotS hype, I made it out to the theaters to see "Kicking and Screaming".

Plenty of funny to go around.  Granted, it wasn't a comedic masterpeice, but it did offer up a few funny parts, such as the first trip to the Coffee shop and the Tetherball game between Duvall and Ferrell.

Anyone else see this one?

Anyone else looking forward to "Bewitched"?  Not sure how I feel about the premise of the movie, but it does sound funny at least with lots of opportunity for Ferrell to fall down a lot.

Hmm, there's movies out other than ROTS?

Well, I didn't catch that (doubt I do) but I did catch some of Farrel on SNL and more importantly his (most likely?) last Celebrity Jeopardy Bit.

Had Hammond not been there it wouldn't have been as funny, but man that was a good one.  0 + 0 = 0, and he wagered Poop.  Classic.

Thought I'd give this memorable thread a much-needed bump for the upcoming Ferrell flick, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.



"Help me, Jesus! Help me, Jewish God! Help me, Tom Cruise! Tom Cruise, save me with your witchcraft!"

Anyone else looking forward to it?  I am.  This is the first time I've been interested in something NASCAR-related since, well, ever.

Great cast: 

Ferrell, Amy Adams, Sacha Baron Cohen (Ali G), Gary Cole (Lumbergh), Jane Lynch, Chris Parnell, John C. Reilly, Andy Richter, and many, many more, too numerous to mention.

Directed by Adam McKay, written by McKay and Ferrell, and produced by Judd Apatow--the same exact lineup for Anchorman.  So I'm assuming that if people liked Anchorman, they'll like this, and if they hated it, same thing.

Due on Friday, August 4.

(P.S. Anyone see that there's gonna be an Old School sequel?)

Saw the trailer for this when I went to see POTC2. Looked pretty funny, might rent it though.

Came back from a 1:45 showing of Talladega Nights. Thought it was a little less funny than A:TLORB, but still pretty good. Anyone else seen it?

I agree, a little less funny then anchorman, but still very good.  Ferrel was pretty funny, and John C. Riley was great.  Molly shannon was funny too, and the outtakes were hysterical!

I thought it was funny, but I agree about it not being as funny as Anchorman. Then again, I didn't like Anchorman that much when I first saw it, but it grew on me. Hysterical stuff overall, and I'll definately pick up the DVD on release day.

See, I'd put this one well above Anchorman.  My wife and I loved this movie. 

I love Will Ferrell - think he's probably the funniest comic since Steve Martin.  That said, Gary Cole damn near stole the show on this one.

This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient, but I do love Fig Newtons.

No, if you've seen one Will Ferrel movie you've seen them all.

Gob isn't worth the price of admission without Buster or Michael.

PS:  I didn't know he (Will Arnett) was married to that chick from SNL with the weird mouth.

So if you've seen, say, Anchorman, then you needn't see, say, Stranger Than Fiction, I take it.  They're the same movie.  Okay.
