There was a time, a time before cable. When the local anchorman reigned supreme. When people believed everything they heard on TV. This was an age when only men were allowed to read the news. And in San Diego, one anchorman was more man then the rest.
His name was Ron Burgundy.
He was like a god walking amongst mere mortals. He had a voice that could make a wolverine purr and suits so fine they made Sinatra look like a hobo.
With “Casa de mi Padre” opening this week, I thought it would be a good opportunity to turn to one of our “What do you think of ___” discussions, this time, Will Ferrell.
Will Ferrell can actually be a pretty divisive comic. There are a number of people who love his movies and consider his best comedies to be classics, and then a number of others who think either he’s a one trick pony (playing the same character over and over again) or just don’t find him funny.
The Tank and I go over our feelings on his career tomorrow on (title pending), but I wanted to hear how YOU felt. Do you think Ferrell is an insane genius? A hysterical clown who can crack you up by reading a soup recipe? Or does he rub you the wrong way? Maybe his movies fall flat for you, or you feel like he’s just doing the same silly stuff again and again and again.
Which ever side of the fence you want to fall out on, we want to hear it! What do YOU think of Will Ferrell?!
