Hello and welcome to another episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast!
In this episode, the Tanker and I go over the Oscars. The winners, the losers, the show… We review how our predictions stacked up, share our thoughts on Billy Crystal a bit, and Tank calls me a prude for not approving of the Bridesmaids job as presenters.
We also go over the weekly Box Office results in our Box Office roundup. There, I share my thoughts on Amanda Seyfried’s “Gone”, and “Act of Valor”.
For our featured review this week, we have the Paul Rudd Jennifer Aniston comedy “Wanderlust”, the story of two New Yorkers who find their way to living in a hippie commune! Will we see eye to eye?
A big thanks to everyone who gave our Facebook page a like this week, and I appreciate everyone who’s moved their comments and feedback there! You all rule!
When he suddenly loses his job, and her documentary is rejected by HBO, Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston find that they’re suddenly facing a financial crisis. After a brief stop at his unbearable brother’s, the couple decide to leave the rat race behind and join a modern-day hippie commune.
They find they have some difficulties adjusting, as anyone would expect when moving into a living situation where there’s few modern conveniences, no privacy, no ownership, nudism, open sexuality and strict vegetarianism.
Normally I would say “Comedy fails to ensue”, but I’m hearing all the hippies from this freaking movie encouraging me to say “Comedy chose its own, non-ensuing path”…
