When this came out I wondered what a Between Two Ferns movie could possibly be. I like the funny or die sketches pretty good but... a movie? Even during this fest I was more or less thinking I'd put this on late at night so it didn't have to make much sense and I could maybe get a laugh or two. But then I saw Lauren Lapkus (Pete Holmes' ex in Crashing) and Edi Patterson (who absolutely killed it in Vice Principals and Righteous Gemstones) and though "oh, this could actually be good."
It wound up just ok. There were a couple good laughs but the story's pretty tired and the actual Fern content is some of the weakest I think. More than anything I think it showed that the Ferns joke is kinda old at this point. Definitely one of those kinds of movies where the outtakes are funnier than the script.
I wish there was more Edi Patterson though. She's funny as hell.
