Story-wise it ain’t much, but that’s fine. There’s a little supporting cast playing Zach’s colleagues, lots of indie comedians turn up in supporting roles, there’s a sort of tension in Zach’s self-doubt and a ticking clock baked into the plot, but it’s all just an excuse to watch celebrities squirm, and on that front B2F:TM doesn’t disappoint.

One is left wondering why Galifianakis and Aukerman bothered to make "Between Two Ferns" a movie at all, when its best pieces so clearly belong in its original format.

Like some of the feature-length spinoffs of old "Saturday Night Live" sketches that proliferated in the '90s, it feels like a padded version of a bit that was a lot sharper in five-minute increments.

Perhaps the film's overwhelming ace is an overarching awareness of just how pointless it really is, made with the same disposability with which it should be consumed.

Those bite-size online interviews were an ideal match of form, technology, and content. As a movie, it all seems so mundane and forgettable.

By giving the protagonist a pitiable background here, the film's producers are actually weakening the structure of their entire raison d'etre.

A bit of concocted fluff that never asks to be taken on the level, and that allows Galifianakis to oscillate, with his usual stoic myopic cunning, between idiocy and ire.
