Will Ferrell has been a little uneven in his comedies lately -- Land of the Lost and Semi-Pro, for instance -- but you know the slump won't last. Not only because he's inherently hilarious, but because we've got Funny or Die providing all the evidence we need that he hasn't become some secluded star turning out junk because no one will tell him it's junk (see Myers, Mike).
The five best Ferrell videos on Funny or Die:
1. Jon Stewart and W
2. Das Pearl
Everyone knows Pearl, the ornery landlord who sparked an internet trend of people filming their toddlers cursing. Here she is with German subtitles.
3. Presidential reunion
It's kind of an obscure issue to get all riled up about -- apparently somebody at Funny or Die has banking issues, or really got screwed on a credit card -- but it's anSNL
festival of former presidents. Darrel Hammond's Clinton, lerring endlessly at Michelle Obama, gets top honors, but Ferrell comes in a close second with the light-sabre work.
4. Welcome, Judd Apatow
The welcome music is epic, but things take a bad turn for the boys.
