Ferrell wants to Get Married and Stay Single

01.26.2010

Will Ferrell's comedic star has been fading for some time now, after a host of memorable performances slowly gave way to SEMI-PRO and LAND OF THE LOST in recent years. I was quite happy to see him whacking a cowbell during "Freebird" on Conan’s Tonight Show finale (no video link because NBC sucks ass), but other than that, the man’s career has been pretty dormant as of late.

Pajiba is reporting that Ferrell has a new project lined up in the form of I DO: HOW TO GET MARRIED AND STAY SINGLE, which is a remake of 2006 French film which starred ANTICHRIST penis-slayer, Charlotte Gainsbourg. The concept is that a grown man is nagged by his seven sisters and mother to get married, and so he makes an arrangement with his friend’s sister to get engaged to him, then stand him up at the altar. Hilarity allegedly ensues.

This admittedly sounds like a pretty terrible concept, and something that should instead be starring Mark Ruffalo or Josh Duhamel, but I guess we’ll see. I'm definitely looking forward to Adam McKay and Ferrell reteaming for THE OTHER GUYS rather than whatever this turns out to be.

this could work

Will Ferrell and Will Arnett should team up for movie. Arnett was the best part of Semi Pro.

Land of the Lost was terrible, but I've thought pretty much all his other movies had funny moments. Step Brothers was good, Blades of Glory was good, Semi-Pro wasn't terrible. We'll see what happens with this one.

I must be the only one who thought Blades of Glory was his funniest movie in recent years. But Step-brothers was better than I expected.

I'm Pro Step Brothers, but I doubt this move will help Ferrel's career much. GIVE US ANCHORMAN 2 ALREADY!

Step Brothers and Semi-Pro were hilarious movies. Will Ferell is still very funny and this movie sounds like its going to kick ass. Can't wait to see his other movie with Marky Mark.

Pro

I'm pro Step Brothers and pro Semi-Pro. I understand what people don't like about it but for some reason I love that movie.

What do I think?

I love STEP BROTHERS.

It's filled with some great lines, like:

"I'm going to take a pillowcase and fill it full of bars of soap and beat the shit out of you!"

I really don't understand the Will Ferrell backlash. The guy is naturally funny.

I get that he's made one too many sports-related comedies and that in a lot of his films he essentially plays the same character.

We could debate humor all day long and no one’s opinion is going to get swayed. In other words, I can’t convince

We could debate humor all day long and no one’s opinion is going to get swayed. In other words, I can’t convince you that something’s funny if you don’t agree… but a lot of people find Ferrell to not only be a great comedic actor, but a great actor generally (see: STRANGER THAN FICTION). So what is the problem with him continuing to do what he does well?

It's like Michael Cera. Yes, he’s played the same awkward character for a long while now... but he's a very funny guy and GREAT at playing awkward.

I would love nothing more than to see both Ferrell and Cera explore their talents further and take more risks (which it seems Cera might be doing this year), but I don’t understand being appalled that either of them has signed on for another comedy – the more the merrier, I say.

I agree with 'HoyleHaw'. In the Cut, All the King's Men, Zodiac, Reservation Road and he's got Shutter Island on the way.

The last Ferrel movie I saw was Talladega Nights. Wasn't too impressed with him, the rest of the movie was great. He keeps playing himself, which is a problem. When he plays a character that someone else created I like him a lot, such as Night at the Roxbury and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. He was good in those, anything else that involves improving lines and whatnot just isn't working for me anymore, not that it ever really did.

I know this is nit-picky, but I'd like to think Mark Ruffalo has long since left behind the kinds of roles you were talking about.

Yeah, this is probably true. Who's a go-to chick flick guy these days? It's a bad sign I'm thinking of Gerard Butler...

I disagree...

Ferrell is solid, despite the material. I hardly ever re-watch comedies but Old School, Anchorman and Step-Brothers are classics in my book and I've seen them many times.

Elf was the last thing with Wil Ferell in it that made me laugh. Intentionally or otherwise.
