From the Daily Dot

A Futile and Stupid Gesture, Netflix's feature film adaptation of Josh Karp's 2006 book of the same name, is an exploration of the creation of humor mag National Lampoon and its odd-couple co-founders, Henry Beard (Domhnall Gleeson) and Doug Kenney (Will Forte). It's removed enough from its 1970s origins to offer new insight into its generational influence – and it also recontextualizes satire in an era littered with "fake news."
