The trailer for new Will Ferrell “dramadey” Everything Must Go showed up online a couple of weeks ago, but I’m just getting around to it now. Actually, it’s been occupying my mind-grapes for that long, so I take that as a good sign. Check it out.

Ferrell plays a borderline alcoholic whose wife throws all of stuff out on the lawn, changes the locks on his house and walks out on him. Sucks to be him. As you can probably predict, great personal growth befalls Ferrell’s character when he decides to sell all of his possessions and separate himself from the failures of his past life.

The movie looks pretty straight forward. But as someone who deeply enjoyed Stranger Than Fiction, I’m looking forward to Everything Must Go because it seems to have a similar feel. How much of that can be contributed to Ferrell dialing it down a notch is purely conjecture at this point.

I know Ferrell is an acquired taste and that any movement into dramatic territory will be immediately dismissed as a craven attempt at legitimacy by his detractors (See Also: Jim Carrey). But what do you think of what you’ve seen so far. Is it worth a look?
