Given the right material, Will Ferrell can make a movie that successfully blends comedy and drama, as he did in Stranger than Fiction. Here, Everything Must Go is based on the writings of famed short-story writer, Raymond Carver, and the premise is neat -- a man who has lost his wife and job decides to live out on his lawn, where he holds a yard sale to get rid of his stuff -- but the payoff, I suspect, will be what makes the film. It reminds of of Clooney's backpack speech in Up in the Air: Think of how much lighter that backpack would be if we unloaded all of our possessions, how much more freely we could move around in the world. I suspect that that's the thematic through line in Everything Must Go, even if the trailer focuses largely on Biggie Small's kid, Christopher Jordan Wallace, and a potential love interest in Rebeca Hall.

This is precious suburban white-boy wannabe-hipster kibble, and I'm going to stick my face in the bowl and lap that shit up.
