A lot of this blog is hilarious. I especially liked this summary of Will Ferrell's "Kicking and Screaming" movie:


Will Ferrell comes home after a long day of not being funny. His wife is stretching after a Pilates work out.

WILL: Honey? Do you think it will be funny if I make a movie where I'm the coach of a peewee soccer team full of retards and kids with sclerosis?


WILL: Do you think Universal will give me 20 million dollars to make it anyway?

There is a long pause as Will's wife wonders if half that money is worth sitting through the premiere.

WILL: Or maybe we could do one where I'm like a championship bar-b-q chef or the world's oldest synchronized swimmer? And the world's oldest synchronized swimmer?

WIFE: Kill me.
