The Will Ferrell Challenge continued for Mark Kermode with a new vlog, following the first Kermode Uncut vlog, which centreds around the fact that people told him online that they assumed he would hate the new Will Ferrell movie, Get Hard, where he plays millionaire James King, who is nailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, and then turns to Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) to prep him to go behind bars.
The challenge is to suggest an actor, director or other film-related individual who has only ever made a body of work which you hate in its entireity. Mark Kermode couldn’t… and neither could I after the first one, although I did think of a music-related suggestion: Heather Small from the popular ’90s band M People.
Suggestions put to Mr Kermode are George Lucas, Orlando Bloom (aka “Orlondo Bland”), Rob Schneider, Julian Sands, Jennifer Aniston, Mackenzie Crook, Zack Snyder, Brett Ratner, Michael Bay, Kevin James, Jean-Luc Godard, Tommy Wiseau (The Room), Uwe Boll, and the godawful McG (director of “Terminator Salivation” as he calls it).
But what did he make of these?
