We gave it a C+

Ron, a talking stooge, will read whatever is placed in front of him, and he treats his own brain, too, as a kind of TelePrompTer. Will Ferrell does a variation on his specialty: the completely unjustified egomaniac. There are a few laughs, but Ron is a little too derivative — he’s Ted Baxter with a touch of Wild and Crazy Guy
