When Will Ferrell was struggling to break out on Saturday Night Live, the election of George W. Bush came as a gift from God. The new President gave him a character with a greater reach than one of those head-bobbing Roxbury guys--so it's only just that Ferrell, now a marquee-topping movie star, should cap off the Bush years with this final homage. You're Welcome America. A Final Night with George W. Bush is not so much a political satire as a fever dream, a hallucinatory exorcism. Ferrell paints Bush as an arrested adolescent, simultaneously self-absorbed yet without a hint of self-reflection, but beyond that there's not much commentary on the actions or collective psyche of the Bush administration (though some of the most startling gags turn out to be true). Instead, Ferrell spins out 90 minutes of faux-personal anecdotes that blur into crass surrealism: Dreaming of a cabin getaway with another man that includes a description of a "Western-grip" version of a certain sexual act; gaping at a muscular Barbara Bush rescuing all the Bush men from a collapsed mine shaft; performing robotic dance moves with Condoleeza Rice; demanding a squadron of wild monkeys be trained for combat; and imitating, obsessively, a Castillian lisp. It is a very strange performance, captured live at Broadway theater and later broadcast on HBO. Ten years from now, audiences may stare, perplexed and hypnotized, at this show, unable to comprehend what it's about--which may be entirely the point. --Bret Fetzer

Glad to see Amazon had this available on prime to watch for free ... I remember when it was happening currently ... I Love Will Ferrell and his impressions. Such a great talent... All political satire is great and I wish people could let their guard down to appreciate this entertainment for what it is... I voted for the Bushies LOTS of times -- haha-- !!! And really enjoyed this show.

Not really Will Ferrell's better works, however, he still did a good performance in this George Bush stage parody. His comedic impression of the former US president had me laughing most of the time. Definitely a worthwhile watching. The only people who seem to really dislike this video are conservatives with no sense of humor.

I saw this when it first came on, and again tonight. It holds up well, thought it's extremely topical. Will Ferrell reruns some jokes from his movies, Talladega Nights is one that really stood out. Super Funny if you like Will's regular goofy comedy style.

Absolutely hysterical!! I've watched it about 30 times. Will Ferrell's impression is everything you loved on SNL but better and longer.

Good one. Will is great as Dubya, as always. Not his best effort ever, but still, worth watching for a good laugh.
