The best movie Will Ferrell ever made

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.

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.
October 14, 2011
The laughs are gentle, Nick is a pleasingly ambiguous character and the anti-materialism message is admirable.
October 14, 2011
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.

A pleasing, satisfying chamber-piece.

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.

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.
June 10, 2011
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.
May 31, 2011
Ferrell steps more fully and confidently into dramatic terrain with a performance that reveals heretofore unplumbed depths
May 27, 2011
{A} triumphant performance that promises much range from what seemed a one-burner hot plate of an actor.
May 23, 2011
This low-key dramedy paints a cinematic portrait of self-destruction with, perhaps, a hopeful glimmer of redemption.
May 20, 2011
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.

It's a nice change-up to see Will Ferrell starring in a straightforward drama.
