Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns Movie Debuts On Netflix Today
Zach Galifianakis has been thrilling us with his semi-serious, semi-hilarious interview sketch called Between Two Ferns.
It's called that because Zach and his special guest for the episode will sit between two ferns and slag each other off. Pretty simple really.
"The set intentionally resembles a low-budget amateur production for public-access television, with on-screen graphics containing deliberate comedic errors," says the synopsis.
But his biggest version of the show, Between Two Ferns: The Movie, will be released on Netflix today around the world.
The trailer was absolutely hilarious, offering us a look into what we can expect from the feature length episode.
Zach had to apologise for one part of the clip, telling Variety: "There's something in the trailer and he's not even in the movie, but I refer to him as a 'hot idiot'. I called him when I saw the trailer...I was like, 'I called you a 'hot idiot.'
"He just laughed. He doesn't care. He's good-natured that way."
The movie boasts and incredible line up of people, including Will Ferrell, Matthew McConaughey, Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Dinklage, Chrissy Teigen, David Letterman, Jason Schwartzman, Tiffany Haddish, Paul Rudd, Rashida Jones, John Legend, Adam Scott, Brie Larson, Jon Hamm, Awkwafina, Hailee Steinfeld, John Cho, Keanu Reeves, Chance the Rapper, Tessa Thompson.
Yeah we told you there were a few people.
Now, you're probably wondering how they've made a film out of this idea and surely they couldn't just make it 90 minutes of hilariously awkward interviews.
Well, the official synopsis is: "Zach Galifianakis dreamed of becoming a star. But when Will Ferrell discovered his public access TV show Between Two Ferns and uploaded it to Funny Or Die, Zach became a viral laughing stock.
"Now Zach and his crew are taking a road trip to complete a series of high-profile celebrity interviews and restore his reputation."
That sounds pretty hilarious to be fair.
Although he technically plays himself in the film, like the TV series, he will play the same exaggerated version of himself that seems to have been winning critics over.
There were fairly regular episodes of the show between 2008 and 2014, over the past few years there have only been two - one in 2016 featured Hillary Clinton and then another last year, which included Jerry Seinfeld and Cardi B.
The movie is out on Netflix from today so stream it and let us know what you think.
