Runtime: 97 min
When an alcoholic relapses, causing him to lose his wife and his job, he holds a yard sale on his front lawn in an attempt to start over. A new neighbor might be the key to his return to form.
Everything Must Go is a little dramedy feature about alcoholism and it’s slow, but it is undeniably sweet at its core and can be very charming. The relationship between Ferrell and Wallace’s characters is great to watch grow. Many might not appreciate this for what it truly is because they are expecting laugh-out-loud comedy, but it very much is a dramedy, with drama coming first. It does have a few laughs, but you could count them on your hands. It’s worth a watch, but it isn’t wholly memorable nor does it require repeat viewings, but Ferrell gives a great performance.
