Product Description

Three-time Emmy® Award-winner Chris Rock comedian, actor, writer, producer, director, and one of Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World" stars in his fifth solo HBO stand-up special! This all-new 90-minute (estimated) exclusive will feature footage of Rock from three different international performances at South Africa's Carnival City Casino, New York's legendary Apollo Theatre, and the Carling Apollo Hammersmith in London and will feature Rock's unique, adults-only take on dozens of social, political and celebrity issues.

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

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!

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.

It was pretty good but it wasn't his best work. I think Will Ferrell is a better actor than a comedian, but that's just my opinion. He seems a little abrasive at times when he's dealing with the audience, which doesn't come across when he is dialoguing with another actor. Also, since I've been given the pulpit, I'd like to say that it wasn't my first choice, my second choice or my third choice. Like netflix, prime doesn't seem to have the movies I want to watch. It's a little better but still pretty bad. The Godfather? How could you not have one of the best movies of all time? The Big Lebowski? Anchorman? Caddyshack? Animal House? The Blues Brothers? Happy Gilmore? Austin Powers? I could go on and on. 99 out of 100 movies that I want to watch are not streamable. Who am I to complain, though, I bought prime for the shipping and this is just a party favor.

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!
