Let’s get the list of top Netflix picks of the week started with Between Two Ferns: The Movie! 

Between Two Ferns: The Movie

You have to check out Between Two Ferns: The Movie. The film is a continuation of Zach Galifianakis’s talk show for Funny or Die. For those who haven’t seen it, Galifianakis “interviews” celebrities in between two fern plants.

In the movie, which is a Netflix original, they take the show on the road and travel the country interviewing celebrities. As Netflix comedies go, it’s fantastic!
