25. He's not a favorite of mine either, but the movie as a whole is funny
Edited on Tue Aug-08-06 02:51 PM by Lex
especially Sascha Baron Cohen as Jean Girard. And John C. Reilly as Bobby's best friend, Cal, is a scream too.

There is a brief cameo by Elvis Costello, and of course, the music by Steve Earle is great too.

The movie is not just Will Ferrell, but he did do an excellent parody of a clueless chest-thumping freeper-type in this movie.
