    The Other Guys had a lot of subtle, strange, dry humor to it... it was very different from most Ferrell movies. I loved it, personally.

    Out of curiosity, I checked the metascore Ebert gave these movies... he gave Old School a 25/100 and Anchoman a 75/100. He didn't do one for The Other Guys, but it was given generally positive reviews.

    Like I've said, my views usually coincide with his. I'm not liking these movies only because Ebert does. That would be stupid.

    Thanks for posting those articles... just read them all. Really enjoyed that Deadspin one and the Mariotti (who I always hated) bashing.

    In regards to Old School... that is a movie I could sit through without laughing. I'd probably chuckle at the Ferrell scenes, but outside of those, it was an awful movie.

    Loved it when I was 13... probably because of the tits. Then when I went back to watch it after I'd seen tits and been laid, it was a horrible, horrible movie.

    I hate Vince Vaughn.

    perhaps I enjoyed it more because when I was in the Navy we had a Master Chief who looked just like Blue from Old School and hence earning him the nickname "Chief Old School", no one I served with can remember his real name now.

    You can't tell me you didn't laugh at these scenes

    Slight chuckle at the first one.

    Laughed during the part from the second clip, but it's not intelligent humor and not something that would make me laugh again.

    Will Ferrell isn't funny.

    End of Story.

    You know what you and my grandma have in common?


    You're both old white bitches who think Will Ferrell isn't funny.
