Editorial Reviews

“Will Ferrell shines” (Detroit News) as Nick, a career salesman who loses his wife and his job in the worst day of his life. Faced with his life imploding, Nick puts it all on the line – or, rather, on the lawn – as he moves himself and all his possessions to his front yard. Based on the short story by Raymond Carver, Everything Must Go is “Will Ferrell as you’ve never seen him” (Rolling Stone) in this unflinching comedy about what happens after life falls apart.

Everything Must Go is a 2011 comedy-drama directed by Dan Rush.

Nick Halsey, played by Will Ferrell, comes home after being fired from his job to find that his wife has left him and placed all of his belongings on their front lawn. She's changed the locks, vacated the home, and has frozen his access to their bank account. With no car and no money, Nick opts to live with his belongings in the yard. The film follows his interactions with new friends and neighbors as he works his way through life as rock-bottom alcoholic.

I'm not a fan of Will Ferrell. I've seen a handful of his films and have chuckled here and there, but I'm not really into his style of humor. I've incrementally moved further away from him with every comedy he's made because of the repetition. It's disappointing to watch actors get locked into tried-and-true roles and I think Ferrell has most definitely bowed to these demons. So, when I heard he went after a project like this, I had to support the effort. It's exciting to watch funny folk swim to the deeper end of the pool and I think he performed wonderfully.

I've read through most of the negative reviews garnered by this film and I suspect most people are upset that the Will Ferrell they're used to didn't show up for Everything Must Go. Which is sad but not surprising. I think he's amassed a fan base that doesn't particularly care for nor desire any growth in this actor. He's the funny man. Funny man need only be funny.

Everything Must Go isn't funny but there is humor, albeit a bit darker than his followers were likely prepared for. I don't think this movie is genius but it is a bit cunning and that's enough for me. The acting was precise and my mood shifted softly along here and there when and where intended.

4.0 out of 5 stars great movie September 7, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I have seen this movie voted down for lack of comedic value. I would rate those users down for offering up an opinion on a movie for which they failed to read the advertised description.

This movie has substance. It was well-written, well-directed and well-produced. It was a very worthwhile use of my time. Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes heartwarming, sometimes funny... but always very real. I never heard of this movie before I saw the trailer tacked to some video on youtube. It deserves more press because it represents a common but often overlooked life experience. Well-meaning individuals who constantly struggle to avoid drowning in their own vices will find something encouraging in this movie. I liked that this movie was less formulaic and more realistic than most Hollywood fare. Will Farrell is a perfectly capable actor who doesn't seem the least bit constrained by typecasting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Diamond In The Rough May 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The premise is pretty simple. Nick(Will Ferrell), a hot-shot corporate executive, gets canned for some improprieties at a meeting in Denver. He goes home and his wife locks him out and all his stuff is on the lawn. His AA sponsor (Michael Pena) tells him he has to hold a yard sale or go to jail. Begrudgingly Nick conducts the sale with the help of a wise beyond his years neighborhood kid(Christopher C.J. Wallace). This set-up is pretty simple and you wouldn't think it would work as a feature film. Work it does and there are many riches to be mined here. Based on a Raymond Carver short story, as the film goes on you learn more about Nick and the depths of his psyche. Ferrell plays it close to the vest and doesn't overplay the alcoholism angle. Ferrell's subtle work here is surprisingly effective and probably one of the best performances of last year. Good supporting work is also offered by Rebecca Hall as a sympathetic neighbor, Laura Dern as an old classmate and young Wallace who is a real find. "Everything Must Go" is a genuine sleeper and should be sought by ambitious film lovers who should not be put off by Ferrell's status as a broad comedian.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding treatise on life!!! November 11, 2011
By P David
Format:Amazon Instant Video
FIRST: If you want Saturday Night Live or Buddy the Elf, go somewhere else.
SECOND: If you appreciate good acting in a well written script telling a compelling human life drama, then this is for you.

I am being as straightforward as possible in the above summation. Will Ferrell proves his acting ability in this excellent film. This is not a comedy although, like life, it has its comedic moments. This is a story of hitting rock bottom, then starting to make a recovery. There is no Jimmy Stewart-esque happy ending, just as that does not occur in real life. Instead, the story of a man and his weaknesses is told through the the unblinking eyes of the world created by his indiscretions. There is the hint of the start of redemption, but, as in real life, that redemption does not occur in the final 10 minutes. I was very impressed with the subtlety of Will Ferrell's acting, and have to say that this is truly a very good film. Again, if you are expecting broad comedy, don't look twice at this. On the other hand, if you like good films, then definitely take a look at this grossly under-rated gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Subtle, at times humorous, five-days-in-the-life-of drama September 12, 2011
Format:DVD
This is a subtle, at times humorous, five-days-in-the-life-of drama about a depressed alcoholic living in his front yard teetering between self destruction and turning over a new leaf. It is really, really, really hard to play an engaging depressed person. Will Ferrell does an amazing job at it, probably one of the best I've seen. He befriends Kenny, a kid with nothing to do and nowhere to go, whose mom does hospice work in the neighborhood. The two are both naturally and brutally honest with great chemistry and some oh so funny interchanges. He also befriends the new across-the-street neighbor who is pregnant with an absent husband. There are several other friends, neighbors, co workers, and relations past & present that come into play. This movie's strength is not so much in the story line as in the relationships, conversations, and the internal struggle between our selfish and selfless nature. Well done film about daily living with addiction and its impact (often longterm and far reaching) on oneself and others. Watched it twice and appreciated the humor in it much more the second time around.

One small issue was that the ending music was the same as used for an intense scene in the film Leaves of Grass, which, for me, brought it to mind and detracted from an otherwise really well-done conclusion to this film.

2.0 out of 5 stars poorly written
the film has no climax - it just sort of stops. The whole thing pretty much just repeats itself the whole time. I wouldn't suggest bothering to watch it.
