Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, The Other Guys

The “totally real” San Diego news station KVWN surveyed a billion Americans and found that the best way to spend some free time is by watching a movie or show starring Will Ferrell. Ferrell’s latest film, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, recently premiered on Netflix, claiming two hours of your weekend, but what do you do after you’ve watched the movie and belted out “Volcano maaaaaan, volcanic protector maaaaaan!” a few times? Watch more Will Ferrell! 

The bad news is that a lot of Ferrell’s movies, including the Anchorman trilogy and Old School, are not streaming on any subscription service for some dumb reason (they are available for purchase or rent, however). But a handful of his other comedic classics are, so we’ve dug up all the good ones and put them here in one handy list. 

Here’s where to stream Will Ferrell’s best movies and shows.


Where to stream: HBO Max

You don’t have to wait for Christmas to watch this holiday classic in which Ferrell plays a human who was raised by Santa’s elves. Watch Elf for Fourth of July. Watch it on Arbor Day. Watch it on Half Christmas. There are no rules to appreciating Ferrell saying, “Good news, I saw a dog today.”

The 2010 buddy film The Other Guys is about two cops who are partnered up despite being very different (Mark Wahlberg is a traditional tough guy, Ferrell is his new, bookish partner) and is Ferrell’s biggest film that’s on Netflix. Wahlberg deserved an Emmy for not cracking up in scenes like this one

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Where to stream: Freeform
