Top 10 Will Ferrell Movies of All Time

Top 10 Will Ferrell Movies of All Time (3)
Will Ferrell’s brand-new comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, which made its Netflix debut this past weekend, quickly shot to the top of the list of the service’s most popular movies at a time when America needed to laugh more than ever. The heartfelt storyline and a few standout songs, such as “Volcano Man” and “Double Trouble,” more than make up for Eurovision’s lack of nearly as much humor as other earlier Ferrell comedies.
We decided it was about time to look back on the comedian’s career and pick his 10 best films, from Anchorman to Zoolander, in order to put it in terms his fans would understand. Ferrell has just discovered his comedic style after the forgettable Holmes & Watson and a number of lackluster sequels.
The Saturday Night Live movies A Night at the Roxbury, Superstar, and The Ladies Man are not included on this list, nor are Ferrell’s other entertaining TV roles as Deangelo Vickers on The Office and Ashley Schaeffer on HBO’s Eastbound & Down. Contrarily, since 1995, when I started staying up late to watch Saturday Night Live, Ferrell has been entertaining me.

Both his portrayal of Watergate journalist Bob Woodward in the movie Dick and the marital comedy Downhill, in which he costarred with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, were left off of this list. I adored Ferrell’s work in Daddy’s Home, Starsky & Hutch, Big Earl, the wildly popular “The Landlord” Funny or Die short, opposite Adam McKay’s daughter Pearl, and as the antagonist in The LEGO Movie, one of the most beloved animated films of the decade, but I couldn’t choose that film over Stranger than Fiction, which earned Ferrell his one and only Golden Globe nomination for best actor in a leading role.

The terrible fact that Will Ferrell used brownface to portray Dr. Evil’s Arab henchman Mustafa in the first Austin Powers movie immediately sprang to mind while making this list. Even though Ferrell is funny in that small role, his first studio film was quickly rejected. Fortunately, we’re not here to focus on that error; instead, we’re here to honor Ferrell’s best on-screen work, which has made millions of people laugh so hard they’ve cried. Here we go without further ado!

No.10  Wedding Crashers

Will Ferrell’s role as former wedding crasher mentor Chazz Reinhold in David Dobkin’s 2005 blockbuster Wedding Crashers is proof that a little bit of Will Ferrell can go a long way. Chazz is depicted as a 40-something man who still lives with his mother and has a history of breaking into funerals to pick up women, dressed in a crimson silk kimono that reveals his thick chest hair.

Ferrell does a particularly good job in the plum role, which is more than simply a cameo but not even close to being a supporting one. Chazz’s boasting of his achievements and yelling at his mother over meatloaf is amusing, even though Ferrell doesn’t frequently play the scene-stealer. The popularity of R-rated comedies centered on male friendship in films like The Hangover, Pineapple Express, and 21 Jump Street can at least be attributed to Wedding Crashers.

No.9  Stranger than Fiction

Because it was Ferrell’s first major dramatic role and he was cast alongside Oscar winners like Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, my Collider colleagues and I strongly felt that Marc Forster’s outstanding 2006 movie needed to be on this list. The character of Harold Crick, played by Ferrell, is an IRS employee who starts to hear a voice that describes every moment of his life. As a result, he is made the protagonist of a book whose inevitable conclusion is his death, which he desperately tries to avoid. In contrast to Maggie Gyllenhaal, who plays Ferrell’s love interest, Hoffman portrays the literary expert who aids Ferrell’s protagonist in understanding what is happening.

Like the movie itself, Ferrell gives a restrained performance that depends on the little things we frequently take for granted. With a light touch, Forster expertly directs Zach Helm’s great script. Ferrell makes us root for an IRS employee, which is nearly impossible to do and on its own would be reason enough to earn a spot on this prestigious list, despite the fact that his casting seems a little off.

No.8  Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

This was the ideal option for me because I’ve loved Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back since I was 17 years old. In the movie, Ferrell plays Federal Wildlife Marshal Willenholly, who declares authority over an escaped orangutan and sets out to find “the two most dangerous people on the earth.” Particularly during the crucial standoff between our two heroes and law enforcement, which is supported by Ferrell and Judd Nelson, Kevin Smith’s writing style has a certain comic charm. Ferrell’s performance makes the absurdity of Marshal Willenholly mistaking an orangutan for a young child tolerable.

After falling victim to a humorous parody of The Fugitive, Willenholly finally makes his way to Hollywood in an effort to locate the missing monkey and apprehend the villains—who turn out not to be villains at all. The group then travels to the Time’s celebration of Morris Day. Without knowing what else to call it, Ferrell’s scenes with Jon Stewart, who at the time hosted the Daily Show, might be sufficient compensation for the price of admission. It is suggested that you watch this movie, which debuted one month before Zoolander.

No.7  The Other Guys

This buddy police comedy from 2010 is entertaining and stands up well over time. This was Ferrell’s fourth collaboration with his pal Adam McKay, and it had a significant impact on the Daddy’s Home films, making it the movie that just kept coming. The focus shifts to the other guys: Will Ferrell’s bookish Detective Allen Gamble and his impulsive partner Detective Terry Hoitz, who are called in to look into a financial scheme being carried out by a billionaire (Steve Coogan) who is supported by a group of mercenaries led by Raylan Given. Star cops Danson and Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson) are initially pursued until they are killed while on duty, at which point the focus

According to McKay, the inspiration for The Other Guys came from the meal he and Ferrell had with Wahlberg during which he noticed their chemistry. This chemistry is clearly seen on the big screen. Only Wahlberg’s hysterical response to learning that Ferrell’s dimwitted character is married to Eva Mendes makes this movie worth seeing. Although Ferrell might not feel at ease in that made-up union, he will absolutely enjoy this PG-13 action comedy.

No.6  Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Despite having great chemistry in The Other Guys and Daddy’s Home, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg aren’t a movie duo to remember. Ferrell and John C. Reilly were the performers who first worked together to perform Shake and Bake in this NASCAR classic. Ferrell plays the title character, Ricky Bobby, who grew up dreaming only of moving quickly, following in the footsteps of his father (Gary Cole), who taught him that “if you ain’t first, you’re last.”

Ricky has become a better racecar driver over time, especially when he faces off against his best friend Cal. When a French Formula One driver (Sacha Baron Cohen) joins the team, everything changes, and Ricky Bobby must fight to regain everything he has lost, including his friendship with Cal.

Your performance on the track matters more than your finish place when racing in Talladega Nights, especially in the eyes of your loved ones. especially if you have sons with the names Texas Ranger or Walker. Ferrell portrays the arrogant fool who sneers at excellence every morning but still has no idea what to do with his hands in front of the camera successfully. If Jesus, Allah, or my Jewish god cannot grant my modest request, I may have to ask The Man himself, Tom Cruise. Please let’s have another ride with The Magic Man and El Diablo.

No.5  Elf

I simply enjoy grinning. I enjoy grinning the most. In addition to making you smile and giving you a warm, welcoming hug, this holiday tradition will also make your tongue grow longer. Buddy, a character played by Ferrell, was adopted and raised by Santa’s elves. In order to uplift a pessimistic populace, he decides to visit his biological father (a grumpy James Caan) in New York City.

Will Ferrell’s performance as the blazing yule log that the entire film Elf burns on lends the film a distinct warmth, thanks to director Jon Favreau. Jim Carrey was supposed to star in a darker version of Elf at first. I will always have a soft spot for Santa played by Ed Asner and Bob Newhart, as well as Zooey Deschanel, Buddy’s lovely love interest.

Despite the fact that Ferrel actually made up the song he sings while in Gimbels’ Santaland, Favreau used force perspective in Elf to make Buddy seem even bigger in comparison to the other elves. The fact that others know you’re in love with Elf doesn’t bother many of you. Knowing that there are others who are interested in learning about elf culture gives me comfort. It is regrettable that there won’t be sequels to Old School, Step Brothers, or Zoolander given the popularity of Anchorman, Zoolander, and Daddy’s Home.

No.4  Zoolander

In the immediate aftermath of 9/11 and at a time when people sorely needed to laugh but were still apprehensive to visit the movies, Ben Stiller’s Zoolander was released in September 2001. Even though it didn’t perform well at the box office when it was first released, it has now become a cult favorite. After all, one of history’s comic villains is the dishonest fashion mogul Jacobim Mugatu. Mugatu, a hot little potato that fits nicely in Stiller’s heightened picture of the fashion world, is an imaginative comic invention with his wild haircut and individual sense of style.

Ferrell’s exuberant joy in this film is the ideal counterpoint to Zoolander’s own careless attitude. Although he is a strong opponent who is capable of critical hits, there is something unnerving about him. Maybe it’s related to how he instructs Zoolander to follow the tiny white poodle. Is Ferrell licking lollipops while wearing a girl’s costume the scariest thing ever, or am I once more dreaming?

No.3  Step Brothers

In terms of sheer character, Brennan Huff simply cannot match Ron Burgundy or even Frank the Tank, despite the fact that this is one of my personal favorite Ferrell movies. Given Brennan’s ability to switch between being empathetic and resolute, this is a performance that is both incredibly entertaining and filled with some unexpectedly painful beats. Since Talladega Nights, Ferrell and his new sibling John C. Reilly’s comic chemistry has increased, and the two are now so well-matched that they are comparable to a youthful synchronized swimming team.

Step Brothers is the kind of movie that hits you like a lightning bolt in the crotch or the funny bone, so my worst enemies and I may end up becoming best friends. The kind of timeless classic that “Boats ‘N Hoes” is will keep Prestige Worldwide in fans’ minds and hearts long after the Catalina Wine Mixer has finished its final sip.

No.2  Old School

Ferrell’s breakout role as a leading man occurred in 2004’s Old School because Zoolander, despite Ferrell’s excellent performance there, had trouble at the box office. He was still the third member of the cast after Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson, but Will Ferrell’s Frank the Tank quickly gained notoriety. By the time you saw the movie about three dissatisfied 30-somethings who decide to join a fraternity in order to relive their college years, you were already there to watch Ferrell “go streaking.” He had all the best lines in the trailer.

Todd Phillips first showcased Will Ferrell’s range as a performer on the big screen in this college comedy, which he directed more than ten years before Joker. He was nominated for an MTV Movie Award for the third Austin Powers movie and lost to Mike Myers, which seems ridiculous now, but he still looks wonderful while dancing about and singing “Dust in the Wind” while wearing a dart in his neck.

Old School Dos may one day come our way if the movie gods are on our favor, but perhaps that chapter of Frank the Tank is done and a bridge has been built since then. But that’s not how you debate, and if you say that to anyone, I’ll fucking kill you!

No.1  Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

I can say that I don’t immediately feel awful about this choice. Ron Burgundy, the perfect combination of pure sex, fine scotch, and political incorrectness, is without a doubt Ferrell’s funniest work. For instance, take a look at that mustache. And take note of how he never breaks eye contact! This kind of comic performance can give you a punch in the mouth, a hot drink of milk, and a sensual jazz flute solo.

In the film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, the main character, a news anchor, falls in love with Veronica Corningstone, played by Christina Applegate, a competitor co-anchor whom he first opposed hiring because she is a woman. Ron, not very classy! Adam McKay, the film’s director, claims that Will Ferrell saw a 1970s interview with a sexist anchorman and decided it would make for the perfect occasion for a joke. He supported the misogynist beliefs of the day, and Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner were three of his eccentric co-stars. McKay’s satire is successful 60% of the time.

Because of his ability to discriminate between a whale’s vagina, a stinky pirate hooker, cinnamon-scented hair, and apartments that smell like rich mahogany, Ron Burgundy possesses a certain kind of superpower. Fans of the original should look for Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie, which swaps out the pregnant panda story for one involving The Alarm Clock, a band of hippy bank robbers. It kind of stinks in Anchorman 2, and that stench has since vanished.
Don’t try to hide your admiration for Ferrell; Anchorman is his best performance by far.
