One of comedy’s heaviest hitters on the big screen today, Will Ferrell’s dry delivery and dead-on timing have made him arguably the most popular and successful "Saturday Night Live" vet after Adam Sandler. Whether he’s playing a clueless anchorman, a clueless Olympic ice skater or a clueless race car driver, Ferrell can draw a laugh from even the most humorless moviegoer. This week, catch Ferrell in theaters in the adaptation of the campy '70s TV show, Land of the Lost, in which he stars as--wait for it--a clueless scientist who gets launched into a bizarre alternate universe with his coworkers Will (Danny McBride) and Holly (Anna Friel). Check out the trailer and clips.

In this long (almost 10 minutes) clip from the show, a blintz-chowing, speed-using crazy Will makes money off college freshmen by agreeing to help them cheat on tests and write their papers—badly.
