Screener Squad: Between Two Ferns: The Movie

Between Two Ferns: The Movie Review


Zach Galifianakis is back and this time he’s bringing his surreal Funny or Die comedic interviews to you via Netflix’s dime in Between Two Ferns: The Movie. After Will Ferrell discovers Zach’s public access series Between Two Ferns and uploads it to Funny or Die, Zach realizes that he has become an internet viral laughing stock. Hoping to restore his reputation as an interviewer, Zach decides to take his show on the road with a plucky crew of filmmakers to interviews dozens of celebrities. Though to be honest, does it really matter what the plot of this movie is? You’re here to see Zach awkwardly talk to and/or make fun of your favorite and least favorite celebrities. Allen, Julien, and Brad are here to tell you if this series of interviews are truly worth the investment or if it is a gag stretched too thin.
