Top 5 Will Ferrell Movies

It is no secret I am a sucker for Will Ferrell in almost anything. And though "Get Hard" was probably the worst movie he has ever been in, I am going to celebrate his GOOD movies in a top five countdown.

5.) "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" (2013)

Okay, so this movie is debatable. Some people love it and some people hate it. I often hear the comment that Will Ferrell was just trying too hard. I don't necessarily disagree with that statement. All I know is I really enjoyed it and laughed a lot when I saw it in theaters the first time. It doesn't hold up very well after the first viewing, but it is funny enough to make my list. It does not work as a sequel to the great original "Anchorman" movie, but on its own it works. I love that it alienates so much of the audience when the story takes some weird turns. The whole "blind in a lighthouse" turn is very funny to me.

4.) "The Other Guys" (2010)

Not even Mark Wahlberg's terrible acting could ruin this hilarious film. In fact, it only makes the movie funnier. The movie trailers do not do the movie justice. I went into it thinking it would be terrible. But it turned out to be a great action comedy and number four on my top five list.

3.) "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" (2006)

Honestly, the first time I saw this movie in theaters I was not that impressed. But over time it really grew on me. It doesn't make much sense why I didn't care for it the first time. I was probably just in a weird mood. John C. Reilly and Sacha Baron Cohen are almost as funny as Will Ferrell himself. The film has a great cast who goes on to star in many of each other's future films.

2.) "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" (2004)

"Anchorman" is not just a movie, it is a legend. It is certain to stay classy for generations of comedy fans to come. It's science.

1.) "Step Brothers" (2008)

"Step Brothers" is not only Will Ferrell's best movie, it is also one of Hollywood's best movies in general. Ferrell and John C. Reilly have such a great comedic chemistry it is impossible not to love them. And if you happen to not love this movie I would definitely go get your brain checked out by a specialist right away because you are dumb.
