Will Ferrell 5

Will is MOSTLY funny. Sure he had half a dozen flops but who hasn't? most of the "old" snl alumni (belushi, farley, etc) were good in there time but it's too old school sh*t. that stuff is for the old fogeys. Will is top gun comic for this guy, and everyone got there favorite "type" of comedy. If you don't like Will Ferrell don't watch him, don't review half page of bullsh*t and go back to whore island you smelly pirate hooker.

I never really got the supposed comic genius of Will Ferrell. Even on SNL I considered him so-so and largely propped up by those around him, and I despise most of his movie work. He's almost as bad as Jimmy Fallon.

I never enjoyed the SNL years with Will Ferrell. I've avoided his movies for the most part also. The movie "Elf" was very funny and the one about the weird ice skaters was pretty good too.

Will Ferrell is not funny ... end of story. He was not funny on SNL (except as the straight man, Alex Trebek on Celebrity Jeopardy) and he is not funny today. When you're 40-something and your fan-base is 17-something ...... 'nuff said.

Aside from *some* of his sketches that I liked and/or tolerated...he is an ASS, and he is OVERRATED!

He is a loud and obnoxious idiot and he thinks he's hot shit, but he ain't, he sucks!

Good actor. He's great with the stone cold responses and faces...enough to crack up any scene partner. He revolutionized new SNL skits not all of it has to be presentational yata ta ta ta(hat tip) like. One word. Cowbell

Ferrell's obnoxious, egocentric moron schtick is basically the same character placed in different venues over and over. He was mildly amusing at best in the beginning, but it got old real fast. He's one of the lucky SNL alumni who seems to draw an audience based solely on the fact that he's an SNL alumni. Very strange phenomenon. I mean, there must be a population block out there that sees a movie trailer and says "hey, isn't that guy on SNL? Yeah? Well let's go see it!"

  Will Ferrell is so bad it's not even funny.  People that say he was the best on SNL or one of the best are simply dumb, delusional, and have no clue who the true greats really are.  Let's see.... Chevy Chase, Dan Akroyd, John Belushi, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Chris Farley, Chris Rock, Phil Hartman, Jim Carey....  list goes on. Ferrell can't hold a candle to ANY of them.  Will isn't in the same damn league.  These guys had true talent and were original and unique.  Ferrel is NOT.  In fact, I think the downfall of SNL was when he was in the spotlight in the late 90's.

Ferrell is a braying ass. An overrated moron who hates people and craps on his audience, defying them to laugh at him. It's s&m.; All the little teen boy masochists like the way he craps on them. They spit milk through their noses when he runs with his gut waving in the breeze. He yells so loud: isn't that FUNNY! He's so brave. He must be a genius. Ferrell could fill a diaper with tacoshite and his fans would pay to sniff it.

He can go overboard sometimes, but he is great. I love it when Kattan yells, "Don't blow this for us Gene!" when he was a member of the Blue Oyster Cult. There are so many other moments I would love to bring up, but then I would not do justice to the ones I'd forget.

He isn't funny at all, and I think he is a very odd duck....just don't care for his acting either way...and I think he is one of many actors that have ruined SNL over the years...the show needs some true talent and soon....

It is so refreshing to read comments from people that have intelligence and more over actually appreciate true talent and humor. I have disliked Will Ferrell from day one. The only way I can explain the phenomenon, is that unfortunately the mass majority prefer mindless slapstick humor that requires as little brain power as possible to understand. This is the same reason why "Jackass" and pretty much every show on MTV or VH1 exist.

Will Ferrell must have a friend WAY high up in the movie making industry because he's NOT funny. Did anyone see the episode of FAMILY GUY where Stewie goes to see the Bewitched movie and after Will Ferrell delivers a line, Stewie flys out to Las Angeles, goes to Will's house, rings the bell.... the punches him and says, "That's NOT Funny!" It makes a good point.
What worries me is that so many people THINK Will Ferrell is funny. Maybe it's true that in the "Dumbing Down Of America", this will be what our country considers "funny". Will being a "funny actor" is like saying Brittany Spears is a good "musician". And only dumb people think that Brittany is a good "musician". Anyone see the movie, "IDIOCRACY"?? We're heading that way!

Will Ferrel was funny at times on SNL in no way, shape, or form is Ferrel a leading man all of his starring roles have been absolutely horrible. Ferrel needs others around him to make him funny otherwise its a complete mystery how he continues to make movies.

one of the best to ever grace the set of SNL. the spartan cheerleader, the antics between trebek and connery on celebrity jeopardy, and who can forget the bush impersonation? even as a bush supporter, who can help but laugh at his "strategery"?

Good impression of W does not change the fact that 99% of all the other characters he has done are stupid, and NOT FUNNY! We mock the French for loving Jerry Lewis, and with our apparent worship of Ferrell, they can mock right back. You people must all be dopes or on mind numbing drugs. I tremble for the future. EDIT: Ok, he was pretty good in Dick too. Still, everything else has been so momumentally bad.

SNL really is missing him now. I think it has become a lot more apparent how funny he was now that he is not on the show. He had a ton of memorable characters, and sort of took over for Phil Hartman, in that he could play a wide variety of characters in just about any sketch.

Will Ferrell is one of my favorite cast members of all time! He has so many memorable and hilarious characters/impressions- some of them being Alex Trebek, Craig the Spartan Cheerleader, that guy on the morning show with Cheri Oteri, The Marty Culp guy who sings with Ana Gasteyer... the list goes on! He has the cutest facial expressions and the show took a serious DECLINE when they lost Will...
