Not really sure how this is going to play out lengthwise - that's what she said - but I am pretty sure I can handle as much Tim and Eric as they're willing to throw at me. The rest of the world may differ, but they probably don't celebrate Chrimbus either those Scrooges. The film actually hits OnDemand about five weeks before the theaters so the best part is you won't even have to leave your couch. Shrim.

An all new feature film from the twisted minds of cult comedy heroes Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (“Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job”)! Tim and Eric are given a billion dollars to make a movie, but squander every dime… and the sinister Schlaaang corporation is pissed. Their lives at stake, the guys skip town in search of a way to pay the money back. When they happen upon a chance to rehabilitate a bankrupt mall full of vagrants, bizarre stores and a man-eating wolf that stalks the food court, they see dollar signs—a billion of them. Featuring cameos from Awesome Show regulars and some of the biggest names in comedy today!

Will Ferrell Joins Zach Galifianakis Between Two Ferns With Some Hamm

It's been a while since we've had a new Between Two Ferns but then again it's been a while since Zach Galifianakis had something to promote. This weekend sees the release of The Hangover 2 and with summer inching closer Speed Stick clearly wants to get some buzz going, enter buzz maven fellow actor needing to promote a movie Will Ferrell. Aside from the former Saturday Night Live star's atrocious choice of athletic apparel, he makes a pretty good guest even going so far as to get his own sponsor a shout out. In the meantime John Hamm comes in to look for his car keys that he left there a couple of years ago. So yeah, more of the same goodness you've come to expect when a bearded man interviews a guest in the midst of vascular plants of the Pteridophyta family.

Also if you can't get the fat out of your ears and listen, then why am I here?

Bruce Willis Gets Blown Up And Down Hollywood Blvd On Between Two Ferns

Here's the latest edition of the web's greatest interview series Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis. Fortunately for the latest episode, featuring the star of "Moon Lighting" and harmonicist Bruce Willis, the host has returned to his official duties after a brief guest stint by his brother Seth. Not sure if this is the best episode yet but it definitely has some good stuff. Who knew some actors actually turn down parts, certainly not in the 80s.

Also look who's talking.

Zach Galifianakis' Twin Brother Seth Between Two Ferns With Sean Penn

The latest episode of Zach Galifianakis' amazing talk show Between Two Ferns is sadly without it's host. Legendary actor and humanitarian Spicoli still manages to make an appearance to talk about the current situation in Haiti while Zach's twin brother Seth takes over hosting duties. It's nice to see he can appreciate his brother's humor and how fancy Long John Silver's really is.

Also Ryan Reynolds.

Steve Carell Makes Zach Galifianakis Cry Between Two Ferns

In a perfect world Between Two Ferns would air weekly, on every channel. The program would be an hour long, and Tony Danza would serve as the overjoyed sidekick. I bring this up simply because the new episode of the awkward heavy interview show contains a heavy dose of awesome.

The latest to take a seat surrounded by plants of the class Filicinae is Steve Carell, who costars with host Zach Galifianakis in Dinner For Schmucks. The curveball this time around being Carell's preparation for the interview, and his steadfast refusal to be made a fool. Looks like there is some channeling of Prison Mike here because you gotta admit some of the fat jokes are a bit over the line, nobody should ever be allowed to bring up G-Force again.

Due Date

I read an early version of the Due Date script and while not much is recognizable in the trailer, it was certainly fertile grounds for the funny. On paper Downey Jr and Galifianakis make a pretty great odd couple and this trailer offers no evidence to the contrary. I'm assuming this teaser trailer is enough for any fans of Todd Phillips' previous work to get out to the theaters this November, although Jamie Foxx is always scary.

Peter Highman is an expectant first-time father whose wife's due date is a mere five days away. As Peter hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at her side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when a chance encounter with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay forces Peter to hitch a ride with Ethan--on what turns out to be a cross-country road trip that will ultimately destroy several cars, numerous friendships and Peter's last nerve.

Zach Galifianakis Might Get Nemo on Nazis

We pretty much like anything Zach Galifianakis does, so it's no shock that we are thrilled to hear he's in talks to star in the remake of the 1964 film,The Incredible Mr. Limpet, about a man who turns into a fish and ends up hunting Nazis. I know I for one would like to see him, as himself, interview him, as a fish on Between Two Ferns. Anyone else? Bueller?

Thanks to New York for the tip.

Dinner For Schmucks

Doesn't look too bad.  While Carell has overdone the awkward dork bit and Rudd has overdone the corporate pushover bit, the two are clearly comfortable  together.  Director Jay Roach has proven his ability to be funny and unfunny many times over, but he usually does pretty well with the first in a series.  It's the sequels and such that tend to fall flat.  I like the premise and many of the actors involved, and am assuming they saved some good stuff for the red band trailer, so I guess I'm excited.  What are your thoughts?

"Dinner for Schmucks" tells the story of Tim (Paul Rudd), a guy on the verge of having it all. The only thing standing between him and total career success is finding the perfect guest to bring to his boss' annual Dinner for Extraordinary People, an event where the winner of the evening brings the most eccentric character as his guest. Enter Barry (Steve Carell), a guy with a passion for dressing mice up in tiny outfits to recreate great works of art. From Jay Roach, director of "Meet the Parents" and "Meet the Fockers" comes an unforgettable feast about two unlikely friends and one very memorable dinner.

Zach Galifianakis And Fiona Apple Up In Them Guts

Sorry to double dip on Chad Farthouse today but it happens.  This song is apparently from 2006 but somehow it has eluded me for all this time.  It's a song by Zach Galifianakis called Up In Them Guts that features his friend and sometime music maker Fiona Apple singing the unbelievably great hook, "If you show me your fanny pack, I'll show you my fanny".  We also get to learn a little something about what the British people call a fanny. 

For those that don't remember this isn't the first time Fiona and Zach have been kicking it together.  The video for Not About Love from Fiona's excellent Extraordinary Machine features Galifianakis lip-synching the entire song, with passion.  You can check it out below for a refresher if you are so inclined.

Also, Fiona, how about a new album?

Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns With Ben Stiller Is Here

Look kids, it's not a teaser.  Finally we have the full "episode" of the brilliant Zach Galifianakis talk show Between Two Ferns.  This week's guest is none other than Duplex star Ben Stiller.  Gotta love that joke, and it's not mine so it is fine for me to compliment.  Why this show isn't on actual television I will never know.  I also like how Zach is breaking ground by having his guest's clips only run the audio.  Really makes you focus on what's happening.  Is that a car door?
