Either inappropriately or brilliantly marketed as a comedy this may very well be Will Ferrel's deepest movie but it's not at all what the previews would have you suspect. It's actually a lot about maturing, seizing the day and accepting mortality. The supernatural elements cause some of the rhetoric of the characters' motivations to not make much sense at times but the underlying themes managed to get through if you can ignore that.
If at any point this movie drops the ball it's with its lackluster ending but the first 2 acts make it worth watching. If you liked The Number 23, it shouldn't be a dealbreaker.
