Steve Carell, Zach Galifianakis lock horns “Between Two Ferns”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Yes, it’s pure promotion for their upcoming comedy, “Dinner for Schmucks,” which opens in theaters tomorrow (Friday, July 30). But that doesn’t stop this latest edition of Zach Galifianakis’ bizarre talk show “Between Two Ferns,” with special guest Steve Carell, from being one of this week’s funniest viral videos.

The clip, which is hosted over on Funny Or Die, has an unusually aggressive and humorously defensive Carell going after Galifianakis’ weight, defending his previous comedies like “Evan Almighty,” and just hurling insults for three-and-a-half hilarious minutes. It’s funny, but also surprisingly honest, heartfelt, and mildly offensive. Surprise, surprise.

I haven’t seen “Schmucks” yet. I’d signed on for a “Charlie St. Cloud” screening, and won’t get to see the Carell-Paul Rudd-Galifianakis comedy until this evening. But if director Jay Roach can capture a fraction of the timing and venom of this short clip, “Schmucks” should be just fine.
