Kicking & Screaming

I remember reading that when they finished the original Wayne’s World that they ended up with a movie that was less than half of the length of a full-length movie.  They had to go back and add in some gags just to get a regular run time.  Normally this wouldn’t seem to work but it worked spectacularly in that movie.  In Kicking and Screaming you get a whole movie made up of site gags that are both amateurish and unfunny.  Oh look, Ferrell’s character punched the steering wheel and the airbag deployed.  Rinse, repeat.  I was shocked that so many people had this movie in Ferrell’s top five because it is easily the worst that I’ve seen.
