What the world needs now is bit more — a lot more, frankly — silliness.

Who better to turn to than Will Ferrell?

That’s right, nobody.

Here he is Lars, and along with lifetime friend Sigrit (Rachel McAdams), they are Fire Saga, a musical duo.

Though not that good, they make it from their small Icelandic fishing village to the finals of Europe’s biggest musical event.

I won’t spoil the plot, such as it is, by telling you how.

While not primo Ferrell, this grin of a Netflix flick arrives when a somewhat humorous diversion has become a necessity in these cockamamie times.
