Everything Must Go (R)


The alcoholic son of an alcoholic, sales manager Nick Porter was born in a Raymond Carver short story. In this film, Will Ferrell brings him to life. It’s the story of a bad day that turns into a five-day blur. Nick gets canned. He comes home to find all his belongings on the front lawn. His wife has split. His neighbor, played by Rebecca Hall, wonders what’s up. The ensemble cast brings out something new in Ferrell, who shows a dramatic actor’s progression in flashes. While interesting, the results go only so far.
