It is a mystery for me of when I felt attracted to Will Ferrell's antics, I can't recall it at all, but I'm sure now that he is one of my favorite comic actors alive, and if I try to judge deeper of what kind of movies I'm digging lately, he became one of my favorite actors, along with what was called The Frat Pack after the movie Old School, meaning Ben Stiller, Luke Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson and without any doubt, Jack Black, even if this one wasn't playing maybe in the movie. … [Read more...]
