Will Ferrel movies. I have disliked every one I have seen. The most divisive seem to be Elf and Anchorman. I thought both were awful and unfunny. It seems most people think otherwise. Baffling.
I have yet to see Stranger Than Fiction and The Other Guys. Both I've heard are good even for peopel who don't like Will Ferrel. We'll see.
Now I can agree with you, largely, on Anchorman
. That was a bit overhyped, and really not as funny as I was expecting it to be. That being said, it had its share of moments.Elf
, on the other hand, is a great Christmas movie. Check your Christmas spirit, my friend, your heart needs to grow ten sizes this day ^_~ haha.
The only film I can think of that I really, thoroughly enjoyed and most people I know or who have commented on it don't, is Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
. True, it really doesn't do Final Fantasy justice, but as soon as you think of it as being called just "The Spirits Within", its a pretty good film. Beautifully rendered, great soundtrack, fairly well acted and the story is good, I think. I like what it conveys and tries to teach, and its fairly straightforward in getting to that point, while tossing in the odd touch of drama and tragedy, but not getting muddled down by it.
