As a rule, we tend to decline invitations to junkets or junket-like events here at The A.V. Club, because the lure of trips and snack tables is so likely to cloud our judgment about a film. But when the chance to speak with Will Ferrell and his producing/writing partner Adam McKay came up, we couldn't resist the urge to send someone–new L.A. city editor Chris Martins–into on-camera battle. The occasion: the release of The Foot Fist Way, a scrappy indie comedy written by newcomers Danny McBride and Ben Best (who also star) and Jody Hill (who also directs). Ferrell and McKay liked the movie–about a low-rent tae kwon do instructor–so much that it became the first release for their new company, Gary Sanchez Productions. In the first two videos, Ferrell and McKay talk about happening upon the film, and in the third, McBride, Hill, and Best cover the making of the film–and handjobs. After the interviews, a filthy red-band trailer. You'd better be 18!
The Foot Fist Way opens in select cities on May 30.
