The Campaign: Movie Review

Published by

The Campaign
    The Campaign unites Will Ferrell with Zach Galifianakis, and the way comedy works these days, it's a surprise they haven't work together sooner. They play opposing candidates in a local election that gets ramped up by petty rivalries and the influence of big money, and turns two reasonable guys into monsters. And it's funny.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues (or Anchorman 2, for those of you with short attention spans) dropped a new teaser onto the internet this morning (as if new teases for Skyfall and The Master weren’t enough for one day).  A bit of a rush job, there’s no new footage in the Anchorman: The Legend Continues teaser, but it does round up Will Ferrell, Paul...

Jay Roach has had something of a dichotomous career as a filmmaker—early on, the director made a name for himself directing such comedies as the Austin Powers franchise, as well as the first two films in the Meet the Parents series, before course-correcting and becoming HBO’s main man when it comes to political films about presidential...

There was talk of testing it as a stage show, and all sorts of interesting rumors about the directions it could head, but writer/director Adam McKay has talked about their progress so far.

Basketball fans watching the Bulls-Hornets game in New Orleans on Wednesday night got something of a surprise—and I’m not talking about the Bulls’ bruising 90-67 win.  No, apparently Will Ferrell, who is in New Orleans shooting a movie, was on hand to make a series of announcement before the game, mocking a handful of the players, accusing one of still living with his...

Interview: Will Ferrell for Everything Must Go

Published by

This week in theaters Will Ferrell explores his more serious side in director Dan Rush's adaptation of Raymond Carver's short story, Everything Must Go. In the film, Ferrell shows us that he's capable of an extraordinarily subtle and poignant performance with very few moments of dark humor. This was very much a labor of love for Ferrell who stepped onto the quick 23...

Can "The Office" survive without Steve Carell? That's been the question on everyone's mind, from fans of the show to the execs who have a vested economic interest in its success. Well, while we can't pretend that last night's episode was extraordinary, we can say that from what we've seen, there might just be some life left in this series.

Well, it's all been building up to this. With word that Steve Carell's tenure on "The Office" was up, fans have been sadly counting down the days until his departure. This week brought us the last Michael Scott episode ever, and seeing as he's always been the show's central character, it goes without saying that it was a big night. But did the episode live up to our...

The Office - Training Day - Will Ferrell
"The Office" welcomes one of the biggest guest stars it has ever had this week to distract us from the fact that one of the key ingredients in the success of the show--Steve Carell--won't be sticking around much longer. Well, for what it's worth, the distraction succeeded. As it turns out, Will Ferrell is pretty funny. Who would have guessed?

Casa de mi Padre
Will Ferrell has talked about being in an all-Spanish Language film, but it was hard to know if he was doing a favor, or what exactly it would be. With the trailer for Casa de mi Padre (in English, "House of My Father"), it's entirely a Will Ferrell movie. Also starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, it appears to be a take on the florid styles of Spanish soap...

There's something to be said that only the Beastie Boys could bring out Danny McBride, Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Jack Black, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Ted Danson, Stanley Tucci, Susan Sarandon and many more famous people for what appears to be a very funny goof on the history of the Band. McBride, Wood and Rogen play younger versions of the band, with Reilly, Ferrell and Black the older...

Earlier this month we discovered that Steve Carell and his alter ego Michael Scott won't be around for the season finale of "The Office." When he jumps ship there will still be four episodes left, which makes a lot of people wonder how the writers and producers will handle such a void. They'll hire Will Ferrell that's how!
