Between Two Ferns: The Movie

Zach Galifianakis gets a Netflix movie

Unless you live in a cave, you’ve no doubt seen at least a clip of Zach Galifianakis’s internet sketch series Between Two Ferns. The comedy series see’s Galifianakis interviewing top tier stars, quite literally, between two ferns.

The comedy show will probably remind people of a certain generation of a certain “Chris Farley Show” sketch from Saturday Night Live. The primary difference being that Farley’s awkward innocence has been replaced by Galifianakis’ awkward sarcasm. The end results are of course, hilarious. Oh, and there’s those two ferns.

In the Netflix movie, Zach Galifianakis kills Matthew Mcconaughey. Temporarily anyway. He must then go on a cross country interview quest to save his reputation. This may be a very smart plot device in order to make an internet short into a movie.

Stars that appear in the movie include, Will Ferrell, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Rudd, Tiffany Haddish, Brie Larson, Keanu Reeves, Jon Hamm, David Letterman, Jason Schwartzman, Adam Scott, John Cho, Chance the Rapper, Rashida Jones, Hailee Steinfeld, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, and Tessa Thompson. Between Two Ferns: The Movie begins streaming September 20th on Netflix.
