1. Between Two Ferns: The Movie
Following an interview incident that leaves guest Matthew McConaughey dead, Between Two Ferns host Zach Galifianakis is sent on a quest by his boss Will Ferrell to film a whole season’s worth of interviews in a single week in order to redeem himself. To do this, Zach and his crew head out on an epic road trip to interview the likes of Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Benedict Cumberbatch and more. Featuring hilariously offbeat humour and deliciously awkward interviews, Between Two Ferns is underscored by a surprisingly sweet story about friendship and loyalty.

Spolier alert: Zach and his guests find it very difficult to keep a straight face.
IMDB Rating: 6.2, Rotten Tomatoes: 80%
