Plot & Details

An important moment in American gets a new and . . . let's say different interpretation in this short comedy. In the web series Drunk History (created for the website Funny Or Die), noted comedians knock back some liquor, and once they get loopy they discuss famous events in American history through a fog of alcohol, with their versions reenacted for the audience's edification. In this installment, Jen Kirkman downed a couple bottles of wine and shared what she knows about the meeting between Abraham Lincoln (Will Ferrell) and Frederick Douglass (Don Cheadle), with Kirkman occasionally pausing to stretch out on the couch, ask if she's chosen a flattering pose and wonder out loud if she's taken off her pants. Drunk History: Douglass & Lincoln was an official selection at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
