Editorial Reviews

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! March 31, 2009
Format:DVD
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.

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!

Depending on your tolerance for pain, mind numbing arrogance and stupidity, you might not want to see another minute of George Bush, but with Will Ferrell starring in this final hour as Bushy, you might change your mind.

With all the pain and suffering we endured during Bush's 8 years, we deserve saying good bye with a smile. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Satire at it's best August 20, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a great show, Will Ferrell crushes any thoughts that this is an overblown SNL skit. The show is magnificent and delivers on every level. I felt like I was in the audience. I googled the directors name and he's done a ton of other HBO stuff and he's got a pretty cool website where he actually responds to questions like technical stuff and stuff about the artists [...] back to Will, it's pretty much a one man show and I was blown away.

Ferrell completely inhabits the persona of Bush. Funny. Irreverent of course. Not for the easily offended. None the less I did enjoy this one.
