Watch: 'The Office' Says Good-bye to Michael Scott with 'Rent' Tune


And I don't think Steve Carell had to do much acting to generate those teary red eyes.

  2. Will someone PLEASE tell me how The Office is funny? Am I missing some chemical in my brain that just misses an entire category of funny?

    It gave it an honest try, but I think that show is absolutely dull as dirt.

  5. Sad that Will Ferrell and his intensely unfunny style had to ruin what was otherwise a very (honestly) touching moment. The high-pitched, over acted, trying to be funny during a moment that is decidedly not yours? Not ok.

    Oh please, everyone had their moment to be outrageous in the song, not just Will Ferrell. Lighten up, it's a sitcom not Days of Our Lives.

    I feel the exact same way about "Arrested Development" and every single one of that "Rushmore" dude's movies. I just don't get it. Takes all types, I guess.

  8. It's reversed, right? Like flipped in the mirror? ANyone else notice that?

  9. At first I thought The Office wasn't funny because I just didn't get mockumentaries, or at least the humor in them, but then I watched Modern Family and found it Hi-Freaking-Larious. So I went back to the drawing board.

    As for this little clip, I thought it was cute and touching, but not funny. In all fairness, though, it may not supposed to be -- so I'll leave let my critiques on the show only stand on the show as a whole, not this individual skit.

  10. As a RENT fan, the Will Ferrell part was the funniest part of the whole thing. That part is normally sung by a very large black woman who is not only has one line in the entire show because none of the main characters can sing it. That was changed in the movie, but having Will sing that part, badly, was the only funny thing about this clip.
