Everyone knows and loves the Funny Or Die web series Between Two Ferns. And if you don’t… do you live under a rock?
If you somehow don’t know what Between Two Ferns is, it’s a web show where Zach Galifinakis ‘interviews’ celebrities. And by interview we mean he totally roasts them and makes them uncomfortable
Each episode is between 3 and 6 minutes long, and there are 22 episodes spanning over the shows 10-year run. And with the last episode airing over a year ago… we were due for a new one.
And Netflix being the amazing thing that it is… created Between Two Ferns: The Movie.
In the movie, we meet a fictional Zach Galifinakis, who is filming a documentary of himself for some reason and is given an ultimatum to give Will Ferrell (the actual founder of Funny Or Die) 10 episodes of Between Two Ferns in three weeks. If he does he gets his dream gig of being a talk show host. So, Zach takes his team out on the road and finds celebs with their impeccable tracking skills. But not without his two ferns.
From then on, the film gives cameo after cameo. You might have even missed some, so we’re gonna break all of the celeb cameos seen in the movie!
Alright, Alright, Alright. The movie literally opens with this gem. Sure he ‘died’ but we got a wet Matthew McConaughey.
Let’s be honest, are we even surprised by this cameo? Keanu Reeves just shows up in things and we go “Yup, makes sense.” Because…he’s Keanu.
Will Ferrell was a guest on the show many years ago, and he actually is the co-founder of Funny Or Die in real life. They also fictionalize this fact in the movie, while still playing himself (kind of).
Chance The Rapper
This interview birthed one of the best lines in the film. When told that Chance has a brother who is also a rapper Zach counters with, “What is his name? Community Chest The Rapper?” It’s safe to say we died of laughter.
Anneeeeeeeee Perkins! Rashida makes a brief ‘pre-interview’ cameo, but it’s nothing short of funny!
Another Parks & Rec Alum shows up and gets quite the insult. But we’re living for it.
John Cho from Harold and Kumar makes a brief appearance in a quick montage of Boom Boom (Jiavani Linayao) turning down celebrities.
Another brief yet beautiful moment in Boom Boom’s montage.
We see a wide-eyed and uncomfortable Brie Larson between two ferns. With Zach taking stabs at Captain Marvel and her personal life… how can we not laugh at the awkwardness.
David is the first interview on Zach’s road trip journey, and they have a hilarious back and forth moment by taking shots at each others
We just like really love Paul Rudd here. Everyone knows that Paul is quick-witted and hilarious, and he definitely brings that and his ‘perfected’ Jewish-ness to the ferns.
We stan this woman and absolutely everything she does. Even her hitting on Zach Galifinakis. Because it’s funny… She also claims to be the reason for Mr.
Going to get revenge on Zach sleeping with his wife, John plays the sickly sweet part in the interview, only to maize Zach at the end.
In real life, Jon Hamm was actually in the third episode ever on Between Two Ferns, making this a cute little easter egg for long fans of the show. Here he makes a stab at Bradley Cooper, and fans of the show will also get the reference too because Bradley and Zach would always fight. Making us laugh. Hard.
With Hailee, Zach jokes about her movies and her former relationship with Niall Horan. She wasn’t having it.
Hilarious and awkward (see what we did there).
Hi. Yes. We love Tiffany Haddish. Zach may not, but we do.
The Queen of Asgard! (you should have seen Endgame already so we’re not sorry) This film is just packed with our favorite heroes, huh? She certainly is a hero without a cape in this interview when telling it like it is.
This is possibly the best interview of the whole film. And yes, part of it has to do with the fact that it’s Peter Dinklage. But…it’s Peter Dinklage. While in the interview, the crew is stealing his expensive F
After fulfilling Ferrell‘s ultimatum, Zach got his talk show “Ferns” whose first guest is no other than Gal Gadot! How is she even real? We need her skincare routine ASAP.
Well, that’s it! That’s all the celebrity cameos in Between Two Ferns! These interviews are somewhat scripted and fake. It’s mainly improv on Zach’s part which causes many many many
