It's been over a year since the last edition of Between Two Ferns, but Zach Galifianakis and the show are back today with something huge: Between Two Ferns: The Movie on Netflix! You won't get around to watching that until this weekend, so in the meantime, they've released one of the interviews from the film online for your enjoyment during work hours.
Paul Rudd is the latest celebrity victim who gets grilled by Galifianakis about the #MeToo movement ("What was that thing you were complaining about the MeToo movement before we started rolling?), his career ("Which do you prefer: being in Marvel movies or being in stuff that nobody's ever heard of?"), Judaism ("What advice would you give to a young actor who wants to hide his Jewishness as well as you have?"), and his advice for actors who want to become "comedy-adjacent." Come for the insults about Paul Rudd being unmemorable, stay for the anti-Greek sentiment.
With all the excitement around the film, Vulture ranked all previous 22 episodes of the web short, which makes for a very fun rewatch. The thing that really stands out visually is how much the show has upgraded its look: when once it really did look like a no-budget cable access show, now it looks like a high-quality TV show. Except, as you can see in the clip with Rudd, they clearly are trying to make it look low-budget by using absolutely terrible lightning that is flattering to no one involved.
As for the movie, reviews have been fairly mixed, with most pointing out that the agonizing awkwardness of the interviews is still the best thing about it, while the interstitial plotlines are kind of a drag. You can check out the trailer below.
