Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga ★★★

Nobody wins solo.

The Story of Fire Saga is very silly, there's no doubt about that, but it doesn't feel as if it makes the most of being set amongst the infamous singing contest that has provided copious moments of entertainment over the years. Will Ferrell is as you'd expect Will Ferrell to be in a film like this while Rachel McAdams proves yet again that she belongs in more comedies. The songs are absolute belters and there are some very funny moments along the way however, it suffers from being a tad too long, comedies running for two hours or more will always find it hard to sustain the laughs. That being said, The Story of Fire Saga works too as a respectful love letter to the Eurovision Song Contest rather than the giant pisstake that I was expecting.
