I've gone through a weird roller coaster phase with Ferrell, at first I liked him, then I didn't care for him, then I liked him again, and now I don't care for him again. I have NO desire to see Land of the Lost, and when I first started seeing previews I actually felt like I would have to force myself to see it because it's Will Ferrell, and thus everyone will see it, and thus I will need to see it in order to stay current. Looks like nobody saw it, so I don't have to. I'll probably pick it up in a year when it's $6.99 at Best Buy, solely for the sidekick (the guy who plays Kenny Powers in Eastbound and Down).
Will Ferrell knows how to be a funny guy but like that article says, he's pretty stale right now. Perhaps it's time for him to reinvent himself?
