Fatty turns Fifty and its fantastic, wrapped in plastic!  This week we review 1987's Mannequin, (starring Andrew McCarthy and Kim Catrall and Estelle Getty), a romantic comedy that explores man's ultimate PIMPelicious ideal of a relationship:  Andy McCarthy is a true artist and navel gazing biscuit brain.  He crafts a mannequin that gets possessed by the spirit of an Egyptian princess who died 4,000 years ago.  The only catch is, the mannequin is real only when they are alone. Their love can only exist when no one else is looking. Pretty soon, department store politics come between them and they must decide: will Andy trade his heart for a dame called reality?  A reality that is porous and extremely biodigradable?  Or will he throw caution to the wind and rescue that oversized barbie doll from the world's largest Mannequin shredder? In the words of Eighties rock band Starship

"And we can build this dream together standing strong forever nothing's gonna stop us now". 

Dave reveals what 50 shades of Rom Com have done to him.  Noah simply says "you again!".

The Truth is...only Gov. Jesse Ventura really knows. Welcome to When Harry Met Fatty’s first multi-episode special The Dog Days of Summer, where we devote all of August to rom coms that feature man’s best friend. Our first installment is 1996’s The Truth About Cats and Dogs where we witness how low Janeane Garofalo can go.  She’s the Rush Limbaugh of Veterinarian radio hosts who lives next door to Uma Thurman, a model / actress.  When a handsome listener pays a visit to the radio station, he mistakes Uma for Janeane and asks her out. The rest of the movie is spent inanely trying to whiten one of the whitest lies of all: Does this Cyrano De Bergerac routine make me look fat?!?

Dave suffers Noah’s revisionist re-enactment of his former days as a cruise ship employee and we wet our dog whistles with a salty dog.
