watching will ferrell's rapid decline

Will Ferrell's latest movie, "Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," opens today and it will probably be the number one movie in America, or at least crack the top five. This film is the latest in the many sad movies in which Ferrell's talent is wasted on playing the-simpleton-with-a-heart-of-gold-who-must-triumph-over-adversity role. So really, Ferrell is basically taking the Adam Sandler way to fame, rather than Eddie Murphy, or some other SNL cast member who doesn't suck.

It's pretty sad to watch Will Ferrell, who was great in "Melinda and Melinda," piss away any credibility he had to basically play roles that mix-and-match Frank the Tank from "Old School" and Ron Burgundy from "Anchorman." I mean, this is coming from the same guy who gave us a pretty rockin' G.W. Bush impersonation.

Based on all the TV spots that were playing during "Rock Star: Supernova" and "CSI," I suspect that I won't be watching "Talledega Nights" for two reasons: 1. it looks like a steaming pile and 2. my mom once told me to never trust a man with two first names. So there it is.
