I loved Ferrell on SNL, one of the best sketch comedians I will ever see. Totally committed to character, fearless, etc. But for 90 minutes, TO ME, he does not work. So, Anchorman made me laugh a few times in the theater, but it was more surprise value than true comedic gold. I rewatched it when it was on DirecTV and was stunned at how little I laughed the 2nd time.

Ditto. When people do not want to watch something/know about something because it occurred prior to their birth, I literally want to explode. That sort of ignorance kills me, not just now, but even when I was a teen.

now that's just silly. anyone who refuses to watch anything of a particular genre, time period, etc. is just being close-minded. i don't try to push my tastes on people, but you should at least give one or two movies a shot before you declare it worthless.

LMP, what is your favorite Al Pacino performance?

I think mine would be The Devil's Advocate. He is so evil in that role.

...fuck. ignore my comments about anchorman, i somehow got it confused with another movie (thanks lack of sleep) now that my memory has been refreshed, i agree. i can't remember if i bought it on dvd or not, but i did watch it some time last year, and i didn't laugh nearly as hard as i did in theaters. it's still funny, and i wouldn't not watch it if it were on, but it isn't as timeless as other comedies.

I laughed at Knocked Up, a little less at Anchorman, but I doubt you will watch either in 10 years and laugh the same way. But if you do, awesome!

I wasn't trying to argue with you, if you thought I was .

Anchorman is special to me, so I will most likely always love it, but I could easily see me not even remembering the plot of Knocked Up by next year alone.

I'll watch that one and get back to you

Michael Corleone in The Godfather Part II.

If the first is showing a good man being corrupted, then this one shows him as evil incarnate. I like his performance in The Devil's Advocate, it kept me watching, but it's too OTT to take seriously. His monologues in the end about God are brilliant though.

Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico, and Scent of Woman have excellent performances out of him, even if the latter is just a decent movie.

You did not ask me, but since I've seen every single picture he's been in, I'll reply anyway, Screw.
