Thanks to a bad migrane this morning, I missed class, so to make up for the lost schoolwork, I watched two movies this evening. I felt that would be a good use of my time.
One of those movies was "Anchorman", a film that I should by all rights have hated: I don't think that Will Ferrell is funny. I think that he is, in fact, unfunny; I think he sucks the funny out of the scenes he is in. I have never thought he was remotely funny in any movie I've seen him in. Until "Anchorman." I am forced to assume, then, that in "Anchorman" Will Ferrell has somehow worked his way past 'unfunny,' that he has moved past 'antifunny,' and has somehow turned a corner and come back to 'hilarious'.
I can't really explain why I liked Anchorman. It made me laugh, uproariously sometimes. It made no sense. Parts of it were trying so hard to be funy that they were pathetic, but most of the time, I was laughing in spite of myself. I'm surprised at myself, but "Anchorman" was the funniest movie I've seen in a long time.
I hurt inside.
