- Ferrell: Stranger Than Fiction, Everything Must Go
- Sandler: The Wedding Singer, Funny People, Reign Over Me, Punch Drunk Love
- Farley: .......
- Carrell: Crazy Stupid Love, Dan in Real Life
- Carrey: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Man on the Moon, Truman Show
I like Ferrell probably the least of all of them. He's the only one I'll actually leave the room for.
I'm with you on most of this, although I enjoy Carrell's, Carrey's and some of Ferrell's more standard comedies too.
Crazy Stupid Love, Dan in Real Life, and ESotSM were great movies. And Wedding Singer and Punch Drunk Love are the only Sandler movies I can stand (although I haven't seen Reign Over Me).
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
