Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019)

Zach Galifianakis and his oddball crew take a road trip to complete a series of high-profile celebrity interviews. (IMDb)
Should’ve called itself “Behind Two Ferns” (I try) and stuck with the effective mockumentary/making-of format of the first act, because what followed was a terribly flimsy attempt at a movie. The premise was pitiful (Zach *owes* Will 10 interviews, so how is he able to negotiate something in return for them?), the plotting pathetic (see the instant reunion at the gas station), and there’s virtually no themes or character development to speak of. It was funny though (deadpan Zach is a delight).
6/10 (Mediocre)
