Extra Ordinary

Anew and eminently worthy entry into the annals of Fantastic Supernatural Comedies, Extra Ordinary follows Rose (comedian Maeve Higgins), a sweet, awkward driving instructor in rural Ireland with a not-so-secret talent (the ability to exorcise ghosts from the everyday objects—and animals—they inhabit). Will Forte is perfect as creepy, washed-up, one-hit wonder Christian Winter, likely wearing the same clothing and hairstyle from the time he enjoyed his brief rise. He's a bumbling satanist whose deal with the devil to get his stardom back requires the sacrifice of a virgin, much to the impatience of his long-suffering, self-involved harpy girlfriend (Claudia O'Doherty). Barry Ward is also fantastic as the widowed father who comes to Rose for help with his spellbound, levitating daughter. Extra Ordinary might be this year's best comedy. It's certainly my favorite of 2020 so far.
