    Though the movie doesn't come out till next July, you can see a handful of amusing clips at the Official Site.

    I'm wondering if Dreamworks won't try to bump this release date up a little bit - considering how everyone's bigtime in love with Will Ferrell right now.

    Flick also features Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Fred Willard, Chris Parnell, Maya Rudolph, Vince Vaughn and...Chad Everett?? Ha! (Click on the IMDb page to check out the laundry list of cameo performers as well!)

    It does look funny, but from what is shown I don't think it will top his performance in Elf. His performance in Elf is a special one.

    I hope it's not all down hill from here for Ferrell

    I love Will Ferrell, it basically looks like a verison of his Robert Goulet character from SNL, on top of that it looks like a stretched SNL skit.

    Doesn't matter, Will Ferrell is enough for me to be at least interested.

    this looks like one of those funny SNL fake commercials. After seeing that trailer, I think seeing the actual movie would be exhausting. Just a little bit one-note high concept filmmaking for me.

    The clips were funnier than they had a right to be. I'll leave the jury out on this until I see the film. I ended up loving ZOOLANDER when I thought it would be terrible.

    Will Ferrell has consistently impressed me in Zoolander, Old School, and Elf. He's naturally funny. But these clips just seem... lame. I'm not sure this is the right kind of role for him, it's too normal. Well, time will tell.
