It's the "Elizabeth's Birthday" edition! Today we picked apart the plot of In-Lawfully Yours, a faith-based 2016 romantic comedy we found on Netflix. Here's the description from IMDB: "Following both the death of her father-in-law and a divorce, Jesse, a New Yorker, returns to a small town to live with her now widowed mother-in-law. Jesse struggles to fit in with the local townsfolk who don't welcome her with open arms to say the least. Jesse becomes acquainted with the local pastor, her widowed brother-in-law, falling in love with him, much to the dismay of the community. Things get even more complicated when her ex-husband comes calling, suspiciously trying to win her back. Between her love life and entangled in-laws, Jesse is tested as she seeks the answer to where she truly belongs." In our review we discuss the main character's odd relationship with her ex-mother-in-law, a pastor's odd relationship with his church's "board of directors" (do churches really have those?) and much, much more. 

The Great Wall

In this episode we review The Great Wall, starring famous Chinese actor Matt Damon. It actually wasn't quite as bad as we expected. We discuss his weird accent, how much time is wasted because his character can't speak Chinese, and also give a shout out to our favorite concession stand cashier at our theater

50 Shades Darker

Valentine's Day came and went, and with it came 50 Shades Darker, the much anticipated sequel to 50 Shades of Gray. In this we discuss the film's nonsensical, nearly non-linear plot as well as Mike's surprising reaction to the film's ending. We had so much to say about this one, we skip the trailer talk and dive right into it. 

On this episode we're joined by one of our favorite guests, comedian Pete Bladel, to review John Wick: Chapter 2. 

This week we review a listener request: the critically acclaimed Nocturnal Animals starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. We also discuss the trailers for some indie movies, our admiration for Amy Adams and Michael Shannon, and a rude fellow moviegoer. 

The Comedian

We're back with a review of Robert De Niro's latest about the story of an aging insult comic, The Comedian. 

In this episode we review Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, one of the weaker entries in the series. This episode features a wide range of topics including: where Indiana ranks on Mike's list of all time favorite characters, how Elizabeth knows what baseball's Mednoza Line is, how Indiana's son Shia LeBouf's Astoria protest is affecting Mike's daily routines, and the translation of what getting to each "base" means in hooking up parlance.
