60. Everything Must Go (B+)

Everything Must Go: This isn't the first time that Will Ferrell has delivered an impressive, dramatic performance, but it's always refreshing to see him play a figure other than the buffoon. Here he plays an alcoholic whose wife kicks him out of the house on the same day that he's fired from his job. There are laughs, surely, but the character's drinking problem isn't something to be laughed at as it might be in one of Ferrell's broad comedies. You can see where this is going at the outset, but it's not the large gestures that are important; it's the small details. And the film gets those just right.
