Ferrell Losing His Will-Power?

I suppose all good things come to an end or hit a bumpy spot - although whether Will Ferrell was ever truly a good thing is questionable. He started to irritate me a long time ago.

Lo and behold his new movie Land of the Lost (a big budget remake of a TV series no-one has heard of or cares about in the UK) has been duly trashed by critics for being 'family unfriendly' and it's tanked at the box office (what does it say when a movie takes $18 million in its opening weekend and is considered a flop?)

Still, considering it was sold with Ron Burgundy as a potent selling point, it would seem he's lost his lustre, at least for the time being.

Meanwhile, all hail the success of Pixar's Up, a company who are proving extraordinary at fusing adult and child friendly sensibilities into an immensely entertaining whole.

The only downside? I have to wait till October to see it!
