Product Description

Will Ferrell: You're Welcome America. A Final Night with George W Bush (DVD)

Amazon.com

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

Laugh out loud funny!
Amy Martin
Will Farrell really captured the essence of George Bush's presidency and personality.

It could have been funny without the very vulgar language.

Reading a couple of bad reviews on this performance, "Will Ferrell: You're Welcome, America. A Final Night with George W. Bush", has me baffled. Most folks in this world love most of Will Ferrell's hilarious wit and comedy range. Obviously these other negative reviewers don't have witty & intelligent senses of humor. Even if you don't follow politics, and whatever party you're in or not in if you do, this is HILARIOUS from beginning to end! Just like going to see a live play, they take quick entermissions to change set pieces and "W"s wardrobe. It is injected with adult content & language as Ferrell nails "W" perfectly. He tells farcical little "W" life details & stories that will have you crying with laughter! I watched this like 6 times when I had HBO. Ignore any bad reviews on here, those folks are retarded. You must at least rent this when it comes out, you won't be disappointed! It's another masterpiece from Will Ferrell and a classic goodbye to the historical goof that is George W. Bush!

The DVD isn't out yet, so I don't know what that will be like, but the program itself is hysterical. I think I've watched it on HBO 6 or 7 times and it still cracks me up. Even a bare bones DVD with no extras would be well worth getting, so there is really nowhere to go but up.

Might have been topical 7 years ago, but the material is dated, the jokes stale, and the performance not up to Ferrell's best. Did not watch the whole show, I guess it could have gotten better at the end, but I did not care to find out. And it is not something you could every watch twice unless you are a Will Ferrell super fan.

It could have been funny without the very vulgar language. Guess if this is a comedic political satire it didn't need a republican spin. Larry the Cable guy could have done it better and perhaps more family appropriate.

This should have ended after the opening monologue. The penis pic was unnecessary and seems to be a recurring issue with Ferrill these days. How sad for a talented comic to resort to juvenile humor.

It was OK. If you like Will Ferrell when he was on SNL doing this impersonation, than you will enjoy the show. It had it's moments, but I am glad I didn't pay to see it.

I'm giving one star based on the first 20 minutes of the show because that's as long as I could stand to watch it. It just wasn't funny. No new material.
