How comedy shouldn't be done
30 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this for the sole reason that Will Ferrell was in it and, in my opinion, he is one of the funniest people in the movie industry. SO you can guess how shocked I was that someone managed to make a film with Will Ferrell that wasn't funny.

The writing was just atrocious, I don't know how a script with as few jokes as this could be called a comedy. At it's peaks it is mildly amusing if you really really want it to be funny. The directing was just as bad, so bad that any laughs that could have been generated from this flat script were carefully avoided. I'm glad that Jim Milio has not been allowed near anything to do with comedy since.

However, as bad as the script and the directing were, my main problem with this film was with the choice of actor for the lead role. Anthony Palermo lacks any charisma and comic talent. He certainly can not carry a film. Although maybe I'm being too critical since there was not a lot he could do with the material but every line he spoke sounded artificial and forced.

Don't see this film unless you want to see every film Will Ferrell has been in.
