- 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).
