In the beginning, announcer Dick Pepperfield says "That little kid from the Jackson 5, he scares me too. Oh mark my words, Lou, there is something creepy about that young man." He may have been referring to Randy Jackson, the youngest (14 or 15), shortest, and only child member of The Jacksons. The Jackson 5 disbanded in 1975, and reformed as The Jacksons in 1976. Youngest sibling Randy replaced Jermaine Jackson, who left for a solo career. In 1976, Michael Jackson, the lead singer and second youngest sibling (17 or 18) was the lead singer of The Jacksons.

I hadn't heard much surrounding this movie at all but a friend and I rented it tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm actually pretty disappointed to see that it only has a 5.8 rating on IMDb, but I guess everyone has different opinions. It's certainly ridiculous and over the top but i think added to how funny it was. All I know is that I was laughing pretty hard most of the way through.
Will Ferrell is a favorite of mine, i grew up with him on SNL and I've loved most of his movies. He was just as hilarious as usual in this one. The rest of the cast was great as well. The story is pretty weak but it's just random and funny enough to be okay without it. I thought the randomness was amazing.
Check this movie out if you're a fan of comedy. It's not amazing but it is a good laugh. Hell, you even get to see Will Ferrell wrestle a freaking bear!
