Starring: Will Ferrell, Rebecca Hall, Michael Peña

Director: Dan Rush

Running Time: 97 mins

Everything Must Go is an American film about a man who is fired from his long-term job, whose wife then leaves him, and he is forced to live in his front garden, and while selling all of his possessions in a jumble sale, he encounters new friends in the form of a woman across the road and a young boy who he employs to work for him.

This was just not a good enough film. I felt that it had a very dull and empty story, and that was not compensated by much comedy throughout, meaning that it was not a very entertaining film to watch.

Will Ferrell still provided a good performance, and although the crazy idea of employing a young boy to work for him on a jumble sale was quite funny, it seemed as if the humour in the story was very poor, and I don’t think that I laughed properly at all throughout.

Overall, I’ll give this a 5.2 because it was just pretty poor. I did not enjoy watching it, and there wasn’t really any comedy in the film in my opinion.
