Scene: Besides Vaughn, Armstrong's other favorite actor to write for is Will Ferrell, whose comedy he says comes from his ability to convey a completely authentic naivety. To Ferrell's credit, he also takes a jump kick to the chest extremely well. When he extends his arms out to hug the furious, charging midget, it is Ferrell at his oblivious best.
Scene: Something else Ferrell's not so bad at is surprising bursts of violence, and this montage gives him a chance to let 'er rip, first with a shockingly vicious diving tackle and then by telling an overweight housewife that he's going to "f*****g kill" her if she calls the cops.
