David Wain is back and tackling National Lampoon with his latest film centered around the life of Doug Kenney and the rise of the popular comedy behemoth. Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan review A Futile and Stupid Gesture, the latest Netflix original movie, and come away talking about the huge ensemble cast. Also what a good Bill Murray and Rodney Dangerfield impression.
We also have a bunch of television to talk about as Dylan discusses both the fourth season of Black Mirror and the first season of The End of the Fucking World. Chris also saw Before We Vanish, which he talks about briefly.
There’s also the usual bevy of news including Sundance winners and the potential Crank universe (!!), and a slew of blu-rays. Next week, we’ll be back with a review of The Polka King because Dylan really doesn’t want to watch Winchester.
