Extremely Raunchy - Not Funny and NOT for kids

So stupid! This movie is not for young teens - at least 18 years of age. Its a far stretch to call this raunchiness even a little funny.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 16+

Too crass for kids!

Most of this show is centered around sexual jokes and sexually explicit content. I would not recommend this for anyone under 17.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Between Two Ferns mixes elements of a talk show with sketch comedy, offering the host and his guests a chance to flex their comedic muscles in their own unique way. Galifianakis sometimes also uses the show as a platform for performing other funny roles, including his "twin" brother Seth.

Thanks to the wide range of talented actors, comedians, and other entertainers who appear on the show, there are lots of funny moments. But Between Two Ferns is also full of mature content, including some crude sexual humor and salty vocab, making it best left to older teens and adults.
