About the Movie
“Will Ferrell shines” (Detroit News) as Nick, a career salesman who loses his wife and his job in the worst day of his life. Faced with his life imploding, Nick puts it all on the line – or, rather, on the lawn – as he moves himself and all his possessions to his front yard. Based on the short story by Raymond Carver, EVERYTHING MUST GO is “Will Ferrell as you’ve never seen him” (Rolling Stone) in this unflinching comedy about what happens after life falls apart.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Rush extrapolates a narrative that is less jarring and more familiar than anything in Carver, but nonetheless true to the writer's tough, compassionate and intimately knowing apprehension of masculine defeat.
Fresh: Will Ferrell delivers a performance of implosive intensity that rings true in every detail.
Fresh: If he isn't careful, Will Ferrell is going to become a bona fide actor.
Rotten: It lives up to its title in ways its maker never intended.
Farrell stretches his Wings
Sorry, it's not Old School, Step Brothers or Talladega Nights. So, If you're going to complain about "oh, it's not funny.....this isn't a comedy...blah blah blah" you can just drive right thru. This is an actor's movie. Meaning, it gives him a chance to do something he hasn't done before. If this were a comedy, I'd call it a "dark comedy". Kinda like Trainspotting. Will Farell's got some mad comedy skills. He's delivered some of the most memorable lines in the past 15 years. But even he needs to do something different. Did you even see Stranger than Fiction? No, of course, you saw Blades of Glory. Have an open mind. Watch this movie with no pre-conceived notions and I think you'll be surprised and pleased. I know I was.
not a comedy

NOT A COMEDY
