THE STORY OF FIRE SAGA"
(2020) (Will Ferrell, Rachel McAdams) (PG-13)
<! -- Start Quick Take -- >
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: Two Icelandic musicians set out to represent their country in a televised European singing competition where they're given next to no chance of winning.
Lars Erickssong (WILL FERRELL) and Sigrit Ericksdottir (RACHEL McADAMS) both came out of their shells as kids upon hearing ABBA sing during the annually televised Eurovision Song Contest and have been a musical duo ever since, much to the chagrin of Lars' long-widowed fisherman father, Erick (PIERCE BROSNAN). The rest of the locals in their small town aren't much more supportive and prefer the duo's band, Fire Saga, to play anything but their original music.
Their luck changes, however, when Neils Brongus (”LAFUR DARRI ”LAFSSON), President of Icelandic Public TV, declares that they need one more act to fill their quota of twelve for their local competition and Fire Saga is randomly selected. None of which sits well with Victor Karlosson (MIKAEL PERSBRANDT) Governor, Central Bank of Iceland, who's afraid that should they win -- with singer Katiana Lindsdottir (DEMI LOVATO) being favored -- their contractual hosting of the following year's show will bankrupt the whole country.
Things look bleak for the duo after a bad performance, but when the other eleven acts perish in a boat explosion, Lars and Sigrit end up traveling to Edinburg, Scotland for the big show. There, they meet the likes of Russian singer Alexander Lemtov (DAN STEVENS) who takes a liking to Sigrit, and Greek singer Mita Xenakis (MELISSANTHIA MAHUT) who does the same to Lars, putting the duo on uneasy ground due to Lars wanting to hold off on any budding romance between the two while pursuing their music and hoping to win the contest.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Those into goofy comedies and/or who are fans of the leads or anyone else in the cast might be interested.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For crude sexual material including full nude sculptures, some comic violent images, and language.
