It's a mess!! Not this movie, but in general...
I’ll be honest, as the movie started I was already annoyed that Will Ferrell again resorted to playing the buffoon, A.K.A. Ron Burgundy, except now his name was Cam Brady and he has been an unchallenged four-term Democratic US Representative from North Carolina. In struts (I use that term very lightly) Zach Galifianakis.
"It's a mess!!" :: Marty Huggins
He really steals the show as Marty Huggins, the pure-hearted Capotesque tourism director of the town of Hammond, and I’m wondering if Zach even had a hand in directing. Maybe it’s just something about his crazed goofiness that just cracks me up, but it felt like the camera cut or zoomed or was edited just so… The movie as a whole was generally good, with a painfully funny, extended dinner scene that had me hooting like a caged baboon. Will Ferrell definitely has his moments, but I was bored seeing him do the slow-motion slow-talk thing again. There are times when he is both hilarious and devilishly quick-witted—oh, what a great movie that could have been without the oafishness! Still, I would recommend it, not just for Galifianakis but also the supporting cast—basically the entire Huggins family kicks ass—and the innocent situations the two stars are drawn into only for them to destroy any semblance of good sportsmanship.
