What I always thought what made Will Ferrell so funny was how committed he was to creating characters who were totally oblivious to how the rest of the world saw them, with Buddy The Elf and Ron Burgundy standing out as some of his best. I even thought he was one of the best things about Melinda and Melinda because he is among the few actors in a Woody Allen movie that wasn't determined to play Woody Allen. For Ferrell it never seemed to be about about profanity, it was about absurdity.

In an interview with Suicide Girls director Adam McKay he confirmed that his next project with Ferrell and John C. Reilly is not concerned with what he calls the "PG-13 Game" and instead is aiming for a solid R rating for their upcoming comedy Step Brothers. Since most Will Ferrell films read like an improv session anyway, it shouldn't be a surprise that so far the project consists of an outline and about 25 pages of a shooting script, but McKay says, "We're not stopping language or nudity. Already there are a couple jokes that have nudity and just 25 pages into it we've already said F*ck about seven times". The project is set to go into production this July, so we'll have to wait and see if working blue is the key to success for the trio.
