Episode 80 – THE HOLIDAY

We celebrate the Holidays once again as we discuss the 2006 film The Holiday, which is surprisingly short on the holiday stuff and big on the painfully long scenes. A good starting premise is too-soon soaked with overblown hollywood embellishments, reminding us that two women trying to grow out of bad relationships, really just need to rebound to the next guy. Did the actors do the best they could with a bad script? We’re not entirely sure, but we do learn that Cameron Diaz cannot carry extended solo-scenes talking to herself, and that Jack Black definitely sent his robot-double to set each day.

Unlike this film, which strangely glazes over the holidays and slaps on a saccharine New Years Eve scene, we hope that you and yours have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

This week we discuss 1997’s Grosse Pointe Blank, starring John Cusack as a hit man, Dan Aykroyd as an evil hit man, and Minnie Driver as his love interest (Cusack’s not Aykroyd’s– that would be weird). We’re joined by Andrew Parker of Dork Shelf to get to the bottom of this funny, somewhat unscrupulous, action-infused romantic comedy. Oh, and it has a great soundtrack– just try and get Blister in the Sun out of your head after listening to this episode.
