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

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.

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.

A pleasing, satisfying chamber-piece.

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.

The Ooh Tray

Everything Must Go is an intimate and engaging affair, anchored by a fine performance from Ferrell in a role that required a surfeit of subtleties.

Everything Must Go is a fine film on it's own, though the resolution, a happy ending of sorts, is far too clean and tidy considering its inspiration.

Ferrell steps more fully and confidently into dramatic terrain with a performance that reveals heretofore unplumbed depths

Film Threat

{A} triumphant performance that promises much range from what seemed a one-burner hot plate of an actor.

SSG Syndicate

This low-key dramedy paints a cinematic portrait of self-destruction with, perhaps, a hopeful glimmer of redemption.

Hollywood & Fine

Will Ferrell shows that he could have a career beyond stupid comedy..It's nice to see Ferrell stretching himself. Time for more of that career yoga, Will.
