Everything Must Go
DVD $27.98 / Blu-ray $39.99

Will Ferrell is best known for his bawdy comedies, but here he turns serious to play a newly unemployed salesman who’s lost his job, his house and his wife, who’s locked him out, thrown all his stuff on the lawn and moved away. And he’s got a drinking problem. Can he turn things around? It’s not exactly a pick-me-up, but Ferrell is solid and surprisingly good, finding the humanity, the heartache and the bruised hopes in a story that hits uncomfortably close to home in these troubling economic times. Extras include commentary, a behind-the-scenes feature and a look at how Ferrell approached his character and his role, a part very different from anything he’d ever done before.
