    One question: Why make a comedy about this crap song contest when the show itself has become a parody?

    Any Europeans out there will probably know what I mean. And for any other people; be happy if you don't have the slightest idea what the hell the Eurovision Song Contest is...

    The show itself is hilarious and the naivety of the eastern europeans as to how unintentionally funny it actually is what makes it so funny. Terry Wogan's commentary was top notch again this year, especially when Santa Claus came out for the start of the voting.

    By the way THANKS ALOT to the UK for giving Ireland NUL POINTS for the first time in ages, we can normally rely on each others votes and this year we gave your Scooch brilliance 7 but what did our traditional Irish flower power group get? - NOTHING!! haha, our song was AWFUL though, I don't know how it went through, all the old farts in Ireland voted for it I suppose! Does this mean Ireland and UK are relegated next year?

    Your entry was scary, weird hippy girl, and why should we vote for you just as your next to us? That would make us as bad as the Eastern Europeans wouldn't it?
    We vote for the song not countries, so sorry we didn't give you any, but your one was well she was scary hippy lady lol.
    But ours was cheesy but fun lol.

    UK are always in as we put the most money in the show so we are always in it.


    The winning one sucked!!!! SUCKED!!!

    Oh no I have a feeling it’s going to be horrible.

    What a shame because Eurovision is ace and it actually does have a good message

    Eurovision is campy on it's own, why do we need a movie?

    Although maybe it will make it more popular in the U.S and I won't have to find a stream to watch every year.

    Rachel McAdams is in talks with Netflix to star in Eurovision, which means a re-team with her Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin and co-star Will Ferrell.

    Twitter loves this. :lmao:

    I mean it’s campy and messy as hell but Rachel McAdams is a goddamn treasure and we don’t deserve her. :bow: She stole the entire film along with Dan Stevens.

    The director David Dobkin was behind my favorite rom-com ever, i. e Wedding Crashers. McAdams was a treasure in that too!

    He also directed another personal favorite of mine in The Change Up. So I refuse to believe he would make a disappointing, generic movie! I'm ready for a camp classic!

    This should have been a half hour shorter but I enjoyed it well enough. Rachel kind of made the movie, really.

    This was dumb but I still enjoyed myself watching it. McAdams really committed to this, despite lip syncing. She could've easily phoned it in and she didn't.

    Dan Stevens is hot so that's always a plus for me.

    I have to say I laughed SO hard at how the villain of this was dealt with.
