Matthew Belinkie, Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, and Matthew Wrather meet in Edinburgh to overthink Will Ferrell’s Eurovision mock-u-homage, Eurovision Song Contest: The Ballad of Fire Saga. We are devotees of Eurovision and very sorry that the pandemic has forced its cancellation, and this movie, whatever its drawbacks, does a number of things that kiiiiinda fill the gap. For now.

- “Cher’s ‘Believe’ Now Faintly Audible Everywhere In America” (The Onion)
Also, please enjoy this video in which the Eurovision Song Contest parodies itself better than this movie does:
