When I initially saw there was a new movie about Eurovision to watch on Netflix, I got REALLY excited. I didn't know anything about Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, but I had a feeling I was going to love it. 

Man, this movie was not at ALL what I expected. LOL. 

Here are my quick thoughts on it (no spoilers), which you should know before you dive into it: 

  • It's NOT a documentary. I was totally bummed when I realized it was a fictional movie, which really put a damper on my mood because I thought I was going to learn some fun facts about the Eurovision song contest. 
  • My heart sank simultaneously with me uttering these words: "Oh...Will Ferrell is in it?" Lol. This REALLY made me disappointed. 
  • It's not a funny Will Ferrell movie. In fact, it's just not really funny at all...and I don't know if it was supposed to be or not. If you're thinking you're going to get that Anchorman or Step Brothers magic, you're wrong. There's zero on-screen chemistry between him and Rachel McAdams. 
  • Rachel McAdams has great moments in her acting career, and this is unfortunately not one of them. 
  • Demi Lovato plays a character in this movie, but we don't get to see much from her. 

I honestly don't know how this movie even ends. I turned it off thirty minutes in, because I thought it was so horrible. Maybe you'll feel differently, but I was NOT into this movie at all. I'm gonna have to watch The Wrong Missy at least five more times to forget about how awful I thought Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga was. 

Before you watch Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, watch the Netflix trailer below.
