Synopsis 3 stars out of 5 -- So far, Ferrell has only hinted at his capacity for dramatic acting but he proves he's a natural here. His performance is introspective and subdued, even in witty moments.[Ferrell] upends expectations from the very first scene....Like Bill Murray and Greg Kinnear before him, this funnyman reveals serious acting chops. -- Grade: B-[With Ferrell] in his most emotionally naked performance yet....There are tiny gems contributed by Laura Dern as the long-lost high school crush...and Stephen Root as a prickly neighbor...3 stars out of 4 -- Will Ferrell is a gifted dramatic actor....Ferrell plays Nick straight from the shoulder3 stars out of 4 -- As he did in STRANGER THAN FICTION, Ferrell displays surprising range when he ratchets down the volume....An utterly restrained portrait of a man hoping to sell of his worldly goods along with his past.Mr. Rush extrapolates a narrative that is less jarring and more familiar than Carver, but nonetheless true to the writer's tough, compassionate and intimately knowing apprehension of masculine defeat. Mr. Ferrell turns out to be an almost perfect embodiment of this theme.3 stars out of 4 -- Rush keeps his film rigorously unsentimental, but Ferrell opens a wound and makes it impossible for us to ignore it.[Ferrell] gives a valid and unshowy performance.Will Ferrell offers his fans a change of pace as he takes on a rare dramatic role as a man struggling to hold his life together. Nick Halsey (Ferrell) was once a successful salesman with a happy marriage, but years of drinking are finally catching up with him, as he's fired from his job and his wife has decided she's had enough. Nick's wife has kicked him out of the house and moved all his possessions onto their front lawn; hoping retain a bit of dignity and maybe raise some cash as he plots his next move, Nick puts a yard sale sign on his stuff and tries to convince the neighbors (and the cops) that he's simply selling some junk he doesn't need anymore. As Nick makes believe he isn't homeless in between beers, he strikes up a friendship with a kid from the neighborhood (Christopher Jordan Wallace), tries to reconnect with a girl he loved in high school (Laura Dern), and bonds with his neighbor Samantha (Rebecca Hall), who is pregnant and struggling to get by while her husband is away on business. Based on a short story by Raymond Carver, EVERYTHING MUST GO was the first feature film from director and screenwriter Dan Rush.
