If Will Ferrell has a part in something, I want to see it. I hear people say they get tired of him, but I don't.

So it's a good thing for me and the rest of the Will Ferrell fan club, that he's signing on to do another movie. The plot doesn't sound particularly exciting unfortunately. The film is titled CRAZY U is adapted from Andrew Ferguson's book Crazy U: One Dadís Crash Course In Getting His Kid Into College about "a fatherís adventures trying to brave the cutthroat competition to get his son accepted into the perfect college."

Misher Filmsí Kevin Misher will produce with Gary Sanchezís Ferrell, Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum.

Here's a full plot synopsis: Obsessed with keeping his son from making that one wrong step that could dash the youthís dreams, dad tries to get an audience with the most sought after and expensive private college consultant in the country, insinuates himself in helping his son past the SATs, and all the campus tours and stressful admissions interviews, all culminating in waiting for the fat envelope that will determine success or failure in getting into an elite school that will siphon off all dadís savings.

Not to heap too much praise on what some have already pointed out as being pretty light on details so far, but if the characters are strong enough to begin with, Will Ferrell can usually be counted on to liven things up without going overboard. He can go overboard, too, and I really hope he doesn't.

like the poster below, i will have to see something more than this blurb from a How To book. sounds like How I Got Into College without the charm or love interest

Meh

I love Will Ferrell, but this plot synopsis is just not making it feel interesting or perticularly funny to me. Maybe a truly hilarious trailer can turn it around for me...
