you know sooner or later they're gonna make this into a full length feature
7 March 2008 | by sttaresssSee all my reviews

This is a funny, clever short film and Pearl McKay is great as the title character. Will Ferrell gets back to his "SNL" roots of sketch comedy, and he's actually funnier in this 3 minute short than he's been in any of the big budget sports comedies he's done lately. I mean, seriously, Semi- Pro was like the last straw for me, I've decided to wait until his movies go to DVD from now on. Or in this case, online. Since "The Landlord" is the funniest, most original effort that Mr. Ferrell has made in a long time, I'm going to make the early prediction that this little sketch will be developed into a 90 minute feature very soon. Will says "yes" too often to mediocre projects. (There was that one summer when he hit us with Kicking & Screaming and Bewitched in like the same week). I admit that I would watch it if it were made, but please Will, don't mess up a great thing. This short is a reminder of how funny you actually can be.
