Since this movie was literally destroyed by the critics and since it was a huge flop at the box-office, I wasn't expecting much from it. And indeed, the whole thing was a real mess but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. First of all, I have never seen the TV-show it was based on so I don't know if it was faithfull or not. Basically, I thought it was not consistent enough to make it really worth it. For example, some of the special effects were sometimes actually pretty good but then, some others were really lame and pathetic. Same thing about the jokes, there were a few good ones here and there but also many misfires. And it was the same thing about Will Ferrell, sometime he made me laughed but pretty often, he was just plain obnoxious. On the positive side, I think it was a good concept to put Will Ferrell in such a wacky adventure and, like I said before, it is definitely not one of the worst flicks I have ever seen like many others seem to think. Still, it remains an average adventure flick mixed with Ferrell's humor and it is not really worth a look.
