This New Will Ferrell & Amy Poehler Movie Looks Like The Funniest Thing Either Has Done In Years


It’s about damn time. I dare you to name a funnier male/female combo than Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler. Tina Fey and Seth Rogen? Nope. Kristen Wiig and Jonah Hill? Nuh uh. Amy Schumer and Kevin Hart? F*ck outta here. Danny McBride and Melissa McCarthy? Well, they may actually have a case. But other than that, in my semi-professional opinion, Amy Poehler is the funniest female comedic actor on Earth and Will Ferrell is Will Ferrell, his career speaks for itself.

That said, none of their recent projects have been particularly stellar. Ferrell hasn’t had a classic since about 2010 with The Other Guys. Sure, The Lego Movie was excellent, but we’re not going to count animation. Other than that, he’s starred in general crap such as Zoolander 2, Daddy’s home, Get Hard, and Anchorman 2. You could almost argue that even the great Will Ferrell is on a little bit of a cold streak.

As for Poehler, while Inside Out crushed, she hasn’t had much going for her since Parks & Rec ended.

Hopefully, finally putting these two comedic geniuses in the same movie will result in the best project either of them has done in years.
