Everything Must Go

Lost is a good place to find yourself


Everything Must Go
Only Hollywood would have thought this could be a movie, and for a change got it right, to judge by the positive reviews. After getting fired, an alcoholic comes home to find that his wife has left him and dumped all his stuff on the lawn. He spends the next four days attempting to sell it, while dealing with legal issues and making new friends... one of whom may turn his life around.

C. Fuchs quote iconWhile some may view this as Ferrell's attempt to follow in the footsteps of other comedic actors (Robin Williams, Jim Carrey, etc.) who've tried to broaden their cinematic horizons and demonstrate their thespian range, the actor never feels like he's forcing it with the material here. Although it's not the sort of work that will blow anyone away or earn any award nominations, it's a solid effort.

Tomatometer quote iconIt may not improve on the Raymond Carver short story that inspired it, but Everything Must Go resists cliche and boasts a pair of magnetic performances from the perfectly cast Ferrell and Wallace.
