We rented this movie this weekend and I actually liked it a lot. It is a somewhat dramatic role for Will Ferrell about a guy who ends up down on his luck in many ways. It really is a showpiece for Ferrell as an actor ... and he does a GREAT job. I generally find him too over the top in comedies, but in this role, he shows that he can truly act. I'd give it a solid "B" as a film and an "A" for Will Ferrell's performance.
