Lindsay Lohan goes from Mean Girls to the mean streets of Manhattan in 2006’s JUST MY LUCK.  Also starring Chris Pine.  Think of it as Freaky Friday, only instead of exchanging bodies, they exchange fortune.  Lindsay is the world’s luckiest gal.  Chris has absolutely no luck.  A chance encounter at a masquerade causes them to lock lips and exchange their respective lots in life…and eventually their desire for each other’s hearts!

And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift would be from me and the card attached would say thank you for being my slam piece!

Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis star in Friends With Benefits, a movie in which the age old question of “will they or won’t they?” gets replaced with “will they give it a break?!?”   Sexy is brought back and it forgets all about Sarah Marshall. 

Our heroes bring you breaking news from Rosemount High, where all evidence mounts against any rosy outcome for parents gone wild at a pep rally.  Being that this is our Christmas episode,  visions of Tom and Jerry drinks dance in our heads.  Dave gives dispatches from the TGIF grill where shit burgers are twice-flame broiled and served on a Britney Spears, with a side of Dharma and Greg. White Russians invade our Cocktail Corner and Dave scares the DICKENS out of them with our special Holiday Palette Cleanser.  Noah reveals his true intentions with all this podcast malarkey.   In the end, Dave delivers a special holiday message to all the unfettered fatties of yours and yore.  We Wish you a Fatty Christmas and a Fatty New Year!

Thanks for listening!

You don’t need to discuss much.  Just drop off the Gig…li…and get yourself free.

This Rom Com gone wrong starring Ben Affleck and former In Living Color Fly Girl Jennifer Lopez was one of many horrible ways to turn three as a Twenty-first Century.  But Eight years later, we still can’t shake it: a hitman with a heart of gold, a lesbian assassin on the cusp of a lapse in her sexual identity…a lapsian, if you will, and WE WILL!  And Justin Bartha, who plays someone with a serious case of the R-Words. And by “r-words” we mean “rap-words”.  TestiFLY!  Come with us, cuz there must be fifty ways to lose your noodle.

Noah emerges from his nanowrimo spiderhole. Dave puts his optometry skills to work in vetting the truthiness of a J-Lo speech about eyeball assassination.   We learn how to make Muff Divers as a coping mechanism for pointless, plottless, Pitter-patter patois and Noah brings it home with a list of worst things to happen in 2003 besides Gigli.  For dessert, Dave offers up a salvo of Sappho for our suffering.

Thanks for listening!

Dave tells of a time when he was once but a poor starving artist wandering the streets of Paris.  Noah imparts his hatred of Art House Laughter and we all bone up on our knowledge of The Big Woody.  Thanks for listening!

Jason Bateman pulls a “BATE” and “SWITCH” in this 2010 rom-com starring Jennifer Aniston and a cup of sperm.  That’s right people.   The war is over. We can finally use semen as a major plot point in a mainstream motion picture!  Jennifer wants a baby, but not Jason’s baby, he’s too far into the friend zone for her, and she should know!   This NBC FRIENDS star, the woman who launched a thousand lesser “Rachel” haircuts finds a donor (Patrick Wilson) who is willing to give up the white gold.  Only, Jason, in the last minute while drunk as a skunk, plays a shell game with the sperm samples and makes THE SWITCH, ultimately getting his seed scattered in the gardens of Aniston.   Don’t worry, we’ll get to the Romance.  Just give us 101 minutes and a kid who acts like an even more disdainful Jason Bateman. 

Our heroes Dave and Noah fill out a sperm donor application form and discuss the finer points of lying to get ahead in life.  We recall parties we attended that were weirder than Aniston’s insemination party in the movie.  Dave's party involved dressing up a cat in antlers.  Noah finds out what Garrison Keilor on Propofol would sound like.  Cocktails are cornered and we enlist the aid of Kafka to help us out of this mess.

Thanks for listening!

Drew Barrymore is Preggo, looking for a mate, this flick's straight from '98!  Home Fries, a tender tale about a fast food worker who witnesses 2nd degree manslaughter, only to unwittingly fall in love with the perp...Luke Wilson.  We can't blame her, but you can, if you want.  Have it your way!
Our heroes Dave and Noah bring you tidings of comfort and resentitude. We delve deep into Dave's psyche to uncover what kind of guest he really is bringing to the table.  We talk turkey, football, Gary Busey lineage and the proper way to address the creator of the Twilight Zone.  Dave caps it all off by ordering the death of 30 black Friday participants by way of our newest creation: turkey pox. Our cocktail corner is dive-bombed by kamikazes, our palette cleanser has a WHALE of good time refreshing our psyches and Dave sends us off into a tryptophanic coma with a special message to the turkeys.  Thanks for listening!
