Will Ferrell in four words

Posted in Observations, TV & Film by Jacob Zinn on June 19, 2009

The website Four Word Film Review is like the Twitter of film review sites. It emphasizes using a maximum of four words to make an extremely general summary of a film.

The idea isn’t to accurately describe the plot of the film in four words. It’s really just a way to waste some time on the net.

Having seen many of Will Ferrell’s films (mainly his work in the Frat Pack), I’ve taken a few and found some four word reviews, adding one of my own to each.

Will Ferrell FWFR

'Did you just grab my ass?'

A Night at the Roxbury (1998) – Steve Butabi

Brothers denied sex repeatedly.
Saturday Night Live Fever.
Virgins with neck spasms.

My Review: Cover covered clubber brothers.

'I invented the piano key necktie, I invented it!'

Zoolander (2001) – Mugatu

Breakdance fights, gasoline plights.
Gas fight ignites, Wham!
War of the poses.

My Review: Really, really ridiculously ridiculous.

'We're going streaking!'

Old School (2003) – Frank Ricard

Ferrell bares self, sole.
Inferior adult “Animal House.”
Will streaks, goes feral.

My Review: Old frat, old farts.

'Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.'

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) – Ron Burgundy

Anchorman’s poor erection coverage.
KVWN newsroom’s a zoo.
Will is news (w)anchor.

My Review: Veronica Corningstone turns Burgundy.

'The room's startin to spin real fast... cause of... cause of all the gayness.'

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) – Ricky Bobby

Ferrell’s Daze of Thunder.
Frenchy Cohen bugs NASCAR.
Ricky loves ‘Baby’ Jesus.

My Review: Rednecks rubberneck car wrecks.

'Nancy Kerrigan. You an official here? Cause you've officially given me a boner!'

Blades of Glory (2007) – Chazz Michael Michaels

Kerrigan, Harding go male?
Skaters no longer haters.
Will, but no grace.

My Review: Skin-tight on thin ice.

'Everybody panic! It's just like the Titanic but it's full of bears!'

Semi-Pro (2008) – Jackie Moon

Jive turkey = ultimate insult.
Ferrell courst the NBA.
Semi-Pro and mostly nonsense!

My Review: Jackie’s over the Moon.

'Sticks and stones may break my bones, but I will kick you repeatedly in the balls!'

Step Brothers (2008) – Brennan Huff

Forty-somethings’ juvenile sibling rivalry.
Immaturity joke: feature length?
Step-bros out of step.

My Review: Super Ferreilly Bros.

Bonus Review

'Can I just get two more weeks?'

The Landlord (2007) – Renter (uncredited)

My Review: Foul-mouthed girl extorts rent.
