Everything Must Go Reviews

John Hanlon
Big Hollywood

A gratifying story with a quietly powerful performance from funnyman Will Ferrell.

Deadspin

Has a similar problem to its protagonist: It just sort of sits there.

We Got This Covered

Good performances by Ferrell and Wallace and fantastic cinematography make Everything Must Go an enjoyable watch.

Gentle understatement that stealthily but surely gets under the skin and touches the heart.

What Culture

Everything Must Go is a pleasantly engaging, entertaining human portrait - a journey that doesn't physically stray very far, but which treads a million metaphorical miles within its main character as he attempts to go from broken man to redeemed man.

Andrew Simpson
Fan The Fire

For a film that preaches giving it all away, Everything Must Go could have done with being a little more bold.

What Culture

Cue self pity, followed by despair, followed by resignation, hope and redemption...Screenwriter/director Dan Rush...opts for this standard redemption arc.

Observer [UK]

I found this a delicately observed, satisfying movie and greatly enjoyed it.

Ferrell is far more impressive in a straighter role ... as he controls his own brand of zaniness and channels it as bittersweet irony and humour into ordinary events.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

The laughs are gentle, Nick is a pleasingly ambiguous character and the anti-materialism message is admirable.

This is London

A well-controlled film with a portrait at its centre that is astonishingly complete.

Allan Hunter
Daily Express

It may stray into a few redundant subplots along the way but Everything Must Go succeeds as a plaintive portrait of a man cast adrift from all the past certainties of his life.

Daily Mail [UK]

Too insubstantial to be a full-length feature.

Guardian

A pleasing, satisfying chamber-piece.

Little White Lies

Like a bad date; it's attractive, clever, but lacks a sense of humour.

Simon Miraudo
Quickflix

It can't escape the crippling clichés of similar films that have come before it, and there are far too many Cameron Crowe-ian platitudes littered throughout the screenplay to remind us that we are indeed watching a movie.

Film Blather

Everything here's too indie-sanitized to even be properly sad. It certainly isn't funny.

Digital Spy

The individual performances are solid and Ferrell clearly has dramatic chops. Somehow, though, it turns out to be less than the sum of its parts.

Film Snobs

Will Ferrell isn't stunt casting--his size and deadpan are essential to the character.
