Tonight is the NFL Draft so we thought it would be a good time to review one of our favorite bad movies, 2014's Draft Day. Starring Kevin Costner, it follows the GM of the Cleveland Browns on the day of the draft as he deals with having the #1 pick and a weirdly shoehorned subplot about his pregnant girlfriend (played by Jennifer Garner). We discuss just how stupid the myriad trades made by Costner in the film are and, how the movie glosses over the evils of the NFL, and how the movie kind of foreshadowed Johnny Manziel's fate.
It's the review you didn't ask for of a movie you didn't see! In today's episode we review Keeping Up With the Joneses, a 2016 film we rented in 2017 at Elizabeth's insistence. The highlight of this episode is us arguing over whether Mike would be more angry if we'd seen this turd in a theater or at home. Sure, you don't really care what we have to say about this movie, but you don't listen for the reviews really, do you? You listen for our hilarious banter!
If you thought Matt Damon starring in a movie about the Great Wall of China was a stretch, wait til you listen to our review of Ghost in the Shell! In this episode we talk about how the film's "resolution" of its casting controversy is actually more offensive than we expected, and also whether it was "not that bad" or simply "bad."
