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. Directed by Scott Aukerman, BETWEEN TWO FERNS: THE MOVIE is a laugh-out-loud comedy that gives new insight into the curmudgeonly, beloved outsider Zach Galifianakis has created over the years.Written by
A strangely unfunny film feeling like a missed opportunity
"Between Two Ferns" are some of the most brilliant comedy sketches ever made and when Funny or Die decides to make a movie about Zach Galiafanakis' fictional version of himself it could have been a hit. But sadly, it isn't. The bizarre humor of Galiafankis is absent throughout the entire film and with an extremely flat supporting cast, he cannot carry the film on his shoulders alone. "Between Two Ferns: The Movie" starts out fine but as the celebrity cameos stack up and the rushed production together with the thin script really make itself clear the film turns into a disappointment. Galifianakis is one of today's most brilliant comedians but I've never been so indifferent to his performances before as in this movie. I wish I could give it a higher rating, but I can't.
