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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

Too insubstantial to be a full-length feature.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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

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.

Everything here's too indie-sanitized to even be properly sad. It certainly isn't funny.
Full Review | Original Score: C
July 14, 2011
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.

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