"The Best Of Will Ferrell - Volume 2" is supposed to include sketches featuring some of Will's lesser known recurring characters that failed to make it on the (10 million times funnier) first volume, including rude and incompetent obstertrician Dr. Beamen, Hank of Bill Braskie's Buddies", and Ted Brogan", the 37 - year - old baby. Also there are some sketches that feature non - recurring bits. None of these sketches are funny.
However, there are a few funny sketches. They are the opening Bush sequence, the famed "Wake Up And Smile", "Lovers" (though there's another version of this sketch with the same characters on volume one except it's with Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore and it's much funnier), "Red Ships Of Spain" (with Will doing his Robert Goulet impression), and "Inside The Actors Studio" with Kate Hudson as Drew Barrymore (though the one with Alec Baldwin as Charles Nelson Reilly on the first edition was much funnier).
The only other watchable sketch is "Janet Reno's Dance Party", which really only catches fire when she beats up Mayor Rudolph Giulianni. It's pretty good, but Will impersonated Reno 13 times, so there are probably better Janet Reno sketches out there.
Also, there are many much more funnier characters that didn't appear or only appeared briefly on the first volume that without a doubt should have been included here.Read more ›
All in all, don't even think about buying this, even if you liked the first volume. This second one isn't the real Will Ferrell, its just plain bad.
After watching it several times I feel as though the makers of the SNL "Best Of" series knew that Will had done so many funny things on SNL that EVERY volume couldn't be full of GWB impressions, Harry Carey and the Spartan Cheerleaders. Hardcore Will Ferrell fan will enjoy this, and everyone should have it in their Will collection. It's not the #1's, but some decent "B-side" hits.
be sure to check out the Conan appearances. A very good DVD extra, and the first one with Will dressed up for St. Patricks Day is hilarious.
This collection of skits can best be described as Will's cult classics. There are some common elements among many of the skits: "dark" comedy, bloody gore and various body fluids, and implausible scene scenerios. Here is a list with short comments on each scene. I don't know the real names to the scenes, so the names below are the best way I know how to describe them:
1. GWB: Access of Evil - The only GWB skit, where he expands the infamous Access of Evil list. Possibly the most mainstream skit you will see. This is where mainstream fans of Will's comedy fun usually ends.
2. Patriotic Clothing Day at Work - See the cast barely hold it together as Will sports a thong to a patriotic casual day at work.
3. The Mark Jensen Family Christmas - Will spins around while singing until he throws up. An odd choice for a Best Of DVD, but a good example of Will's superior slapstick delivery.
4. Insane Doctor Meeting with Distraught Couple - Shining example of a cult classic.Read more ›
