If you want an easy watch to put a smile on your face while giving you goose bumps this is it. So bad it’s good.
Will Farrell is a powerhouse of absurdity coupled with a wonderfully whistfully witty performance from Rachel McAdams, finally landing a comic performance after a failed forced performance in ‘Game Night’
The fact Ireland did not get the slightest nod considering they have won it more times than any country with 7 wins, are the only country to win 3 in a row, won 4 out of 5 in a run, and the only country to have a contestant win it twice. is the only drawback.
Ignore the mainstream critics who poo-poo this film, it’s great fun.
I’m not a massive Will Ferrell fan but it’s clear he has a soft spot for Eurovision and the warmth of the annual event comes through with great performances and (maybe contrary to the real event) great songs.
