Ferrell is an interesting actor, and i too didn't like him at first.
I actually wasn't a fan of SNL, and I wasn't much of a fan of Ferrell because of that.
I'd say my turning point would be Zoolander, he was funny as sh!t in that... i really enjoyed him in Old School and Wedding Crashers too.
i do think he's very one-dimensional comedy and reminds me of jim carry in that sense.
Will tried to do Stranger then Fiction (which i enjoyed), and Jim tried to do the Truman Show (which i also enjoyed).
It will always be very difficult for these types of comedy-actors to break out, but i think that Will is a "type cast," and when casted well, he does a great job (like in this movie, "the other guys.")
