    You seeing Step-Brothers this weekend. I think as far as Will Ferrell movies go, it will be one of the better ones.

    • They'll never catch me... because I'm ******* innocent.

      Owen Wilson was indeed awesome in Bottle Rocket.

      • I don't get the love that Wedding Crashers gets. It takes a massive decline in the second half with it's lack of comedy and it has the usual frat pack one dimensional boyfriend opposition character. I think all of Apatow's major movies have been better.

        • And another thing, Owen Wilson collaborated in writing Bottle Rocket, The Royal Tenenbaums and ******* Rushmore. All awesome comedic works. And they all are alot more intricate and more funny then Steve Carrell shouting Kelly Clarkson. Not that I hate Judd Apatow films, but Owen Wilson is a much more gifted comedic force then Steve Carrell.

          • It is the supporting cast of 40 Year Old Virgin that really makes it hilarious IMO.

            • I loved Will Farrell in Semi-Pro I couldn't stop laughing throughout most of the movie same thing with Blades of Glory.

                I will see anything Will Ferrell is in.

                Step Brothers looks funny though.

                    Not that I'm doubting Steve Carell here, he is a comedy talent IMO, but he takes the same roles for the most part. The dumb roles supported by his main character Michael Scott. The Get Smarts (although he is ideal for this one), the Dan in Real Lifes, the Evan Almightys. I was a fan of the Andy role but Carell would definitely benefit from dark comedy, like his role as the ***, suicidal Proust scholar Frank in Little Miss Sunshine.

                    Also what you're missing APS, is that Anderson's comedy is way too sophisticated to be the high grossing popcorn films that the average McKay films are. The comedy is dark and not blatant. I love Anderson to death but he can't take the step from indie without comedy that the average American viewer is accustomed too.

                    Anderson's movies are critically acclaimed but usually fail when it comes to the average viewer.

                    • I would consider myself a Ferrell fan and I still say his best is Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. I also happen to think he stuff on SNL is brilliant.

                          I'd take Willenholly over any Ferrell Movie Character any day

                          • I think people are showing too much respect saying Sandler and Ferrell "lost it" after Waterboy and Talledega Nights, respectively. If you ask me, they lost it during those movies.
                            And while I don't have much hope for Step-Brothers, the "He'll never know you're gone" line made me laugh

                            • I think KeyLime argued that Sandler matured to much as a comedian after Waterbiy so he is not longer as funny. I agree, Sandler is the most mature comedian alive. Not really.

                              • I actually really really enjoyed Stranger then Fiction. It was such a departure from his more famous flicks, the way he was so understated in it was great. The "I bought you flours" scene and "The whole wide world" scene really made the movie for me. By far my favorite from Ferrell.
