LOVEFiLM Review: Everything Must Go (2011)

Adapted and directed by Dan Rush, and based on a short story by Raymond Carver, Everything Must Go tells the story of Nick (Will Ferrell) a career salesman whose days of being on top are long gone. The same day Nick gets fired, for falling off the wagon one last time, he returns home to discover his wife has left him, changed the locks on their suburban home and dumped all his possessions out on the front yard. Faced with his life imploding, Nick puts it all on the line – or more properly, on the lawn – reluctantly holding a yard sale that becomes a unique strategy for survival. – ROTTEN TOMATOES

Another film I had been really looking forward to and was surprised that this didn’t get a cinematic release in the UK. Perhaps cinema goers couldn’t grasp a Will Ferrell films without the crude comic humour? Anyway this is a very good film. Ferrell demonstrates he can once again handle the dramatic side whilst still keeping in the humour.

Everything Must Go is worth your time as it’s a wonderful and sweet film that has its heart in the right place, excellent chemistry between Ferrell, the boy and Rebecca Hall. Underrated feature.
