After 16 years spent devising motivational speeches that promise certain success, Nick Porter (Will Ferrell) is abruptly fired. He returns home to discover his wife has left him, changed the locks on their home and dumped all his possessions on the front yard. Nick puts it all on the lineor, more properly, on the lawnwith an absurdly escalating garage sale that becomes a unique strategy for survival. Nick comes face-to-face with a life turned inside out and discovers in total exposure an unexpected path to renewal.
Unlike another commenter, I actually watched the movie. Serious and heartfelt, it was refreshing to see Will Ferrell in a non-comedy. It may have been slow moving but the movie was character driven rather than plot driven.
it sssssssucked, had to stop watching it!
not bad, but not a comedy.
