How supportive has Netflix been as a partner? Brett Haley: They’ve been really incredible. I think I like to call these last two movies kind of like what would be a studio movie in the 90s.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga completely wastes its talent in one of the worst films of the year heading into the midway point. This film was never going to be on Will Ferrell’s greatest hits.  It certainly will not be featured on the list of Rachel McAdams’ greatest roles.  The two reunite with their Wedding Crashers director but are unable to replicate on that film’s success. It’s not a good sign when…
