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

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.

Will Ferrell usually is very creative, and his Bush impersonation is pretty good, but when he resorts to what can only be described as "dick pix," I sign off. Sorry, Will, but someone as creative as you apparently are, and who presumably gets compensated quite a bit for that creativity, doesn't have to resort to flashing their crotch, even if it's supposed to be the character you're impersonating. I'm no prude, but there's too much really funny stuff out there to watch crap like this.

Great showcase for Will...but a very strangely designed show. Seemed to be choppy and more or less a 'concept' of George W. not necessarily a out-right slam or farce. Some very smart commentary if you look deeper into the jokes. It was laugh-out loud funny to me.

Actually it was better than I expected because SNL and some of Ferrel's movies weren't that funny! But his sardonic portrayal of the Prez everybody loves to hate now was very entertaining and fun filled with good repartee with the audience and comedic routines; especially the dance numbers! Wheezy Rice take off was sterling!

Could only watch half, it wasn't a impersonation of Bush really, but of extremes that don't remotely resemble the man. Think this exposes more of Will Ferrell's inner being than a satire on a president. This mistake on Ferrell's part wasn't from a lack of material on Bush either. Gives good insight to the interrelation between ideological bias and social hysteria, with stage comedy as the Deus Ex Machine. I didn't see Bush on stage anytime during the entire show, just leftist elitism. If you want to understand why the Libyan War and rise of ISIS happened, watch this show and look at the audience.... it was think-tanks like them who spurred it forward. Behind Will Ferrell's squinting mimick lies a million refugees.... and their justification to ignore their responsibility in the hellish world they created. This is a very terrible film, only gets worst and worst when we realize how much we have lost as a nation, the humanitarian crisis the far left sprung, because of this twisted mindset. This show is a example of how not to do political comedy, it is America at our most twisted. I'm surprise Will didn't punch a live baby for no apparent reason while doing a Bush impression, would of fit the program flawlessly.

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

Yawn. There were some funny moments, but I was tired of watching this after 15 minutes. I watched it to the end, but it was a waste of time. I am no fan of George Bush and there were some good parodies, but Will got a bit vulgar in parts.
