Heavy lies the head that bears Larry Crowne. Starring Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, George Takei, Cedric the Entertainer and Fez from That Seventies Show.  Remember when a mid-life crisis meant you quit your job, lifted weights and fantasized about your daughter's best friend as a cloud of rose petals gently showered over her naked nubile bod?  Well, that kind of crisis can no longer work in this economy!  Tom Hanks, a decorated navy veteran loses his job of twenty years in a big box store because he lacks a degree to make him management material. Falling behind on his mortgage, he decides to sell his SUV, buy a pale blue scooter and start matriculating with the other misfits at his local community college. In no time, he’s Easy Ridin’ it with the campus’ hipster scooter crew and giving his charmingly alcoholic speech teacher,(Julia Roberts) an easy ride on his Tom Hanks patented crank!  If today is the first day of the rest of your life, then this film will make it feel like your last easy day was yesterday.  Starting over never felt so stale. Vrrrrrrrroooooooommmm!!!

Grab your hacky sack filled with coffee beans and don’t forget your flannel diaphragm, we’re going back the Nineties!  When you’ve hit a new low, there’s always room for Cameron Crowe. 1992’s Singles stars Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick, Matt Dillon and a Monarch Liftmaster Model C garage door opener.
This movie is about a group of twenty-something Gen Xers who all live in a singles condominium at Ground Zero of the Great Grunge Contagion of the late Twentieth Century.  Bridget is a Typhoid Mary, doing everything she can to infect her uninterested boyfriend Matt Dillon with her spastic cuteness.  Kyra Sedgwick is an environmentalist who just wants to have a man and possess complete control over her own garage door. We have electronic watches that can store phone numbers, some Alices in Chains, some Pearls that Jam, a miscarried baby, a half-eaten chili-dog, Tim Burton directing a dating video and a whole lotta dyslexic hearts.  If you’re in the mood for a series of half-sketches that meander through the notion of what its like to be white and drink coffee while breaking the fourth wall, then pop open the Pringles, cuz Singles is for you!

This flick is all run and no fun.  If you like wacky chase scenes peppered with light bondage lap dances that end with a gun being drawn, then The Bounty Hunter (2010) starring Jennifer Raniston and Gerard Butler is the only game in town!  
Gerry and Jenny are recently divorced.  Jenny is journalist investigating the mysterious suicide of an evidence clerk. Gerry is an ex-cop-turned-bounty hunter who specializes in catching fugitives who dress up like Uncle Sam on stilts. Jen misses her court appearance for a minor offense and Gerry is gloriously on the bound, hunting for his ultimate prey: an ex-wife who can write the book on fake crying and running very slowly in high heels.  This is Tom and Jerry, repurposed for the heterosexual human species. Many a table is turned as the hunter becomes the hunted and the Atlantic City Mob gets involved to breathe life into a mystery that has miscarried well before any red herrings can be revealed.  In the end, all we have to cling to is the open road and the notion that Jennifer Aniston was willing to show her boobs to commandeer a rickshaw from some kid offscreen.  Now that’s a bounty that we’d like to mounty!

Oh, think twice.  It’s just another day for you...you and me in paradise.  Couples Retreat starring Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell, Kristin Davis and Cee Lo’s stunt double. Oh the notion of divorce bears bitter fruit. Jason Bateman and Kristin Davis announce to their married friends that they are pulling a Kramer v. Kramer.  And can you blame ‘er? In a last ditch effort to save their marriage, they redeem a Groupon rate to the tropical isle of Eden. However, there are no Jet Skis to be had. We will be bickering and bargaining, squabbling and fussing, and would you like some more scorn with your emotional bulldozing? Vince Vaughn’s motor-mouth of comedy will drone on and on like the oversized fan off the back of an Everglades Air Boat. Cee Lo gets naked, Vince Yawn is preyed upon by lemon sharks, Charlotte from Sex and the City bumps uglies with Fabio the yoga instructor and we all are reminded about such fine products as Guitar Hero, Starbucks, Power Point, Foot Locker and Applebees. Spoiler Alert, they get their Jet Skis, but after this Groupon, we’ll need to get a GroupOFF!

Think global, act local and always remember to buy MORGANIC, because did you hear?  Did You Hear About the Morgans? starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Hugh Grant, Sam Elliot and Mary Steenburgen. Come watch these city-pretties put the WHY in Wyoming.  SJP and Hughie-G are both suc-wealthful in all of life’s endeavors, save for their marriage, which is estranged at best. They witness a murder and get placed into Witness Protection, forced to live out the rest of their lives as Mr and Mrs Bumpkin, C/O Bumble Fuck Boulevaard in Boondock, Backwatersville USA.
Don’t worry, almost nothing happens.  Sure, they shack up with the town Sheriff and his colorful gun-toting wife, but they keep leaving them alone to work out their differences.  There is a bear, a town fair and a rodeo, and the killer who is tailing them eventually catches up...but by then you’ll realize that instead of watching this, you could just go to your local Outback Steakhouse and sit in a booth near a couple whose arguing on their Tenth anniversary.  It would be the same experience, except you’d get a tasty steak.  Or if you’re like Noah, who’s vegan, a couple of Bloomin’ Onions, hold the dip.   
Did you hear about the Morgans?  Yes Dear.  Unfortunately we did.

This week Fatty goes to prom with PRETTY IN PINK (1986) starring Molly Ringwald, John Cryer, Anthony McCarthy, Harry Dean Stanton, and James Spader. This is a John Hughes film about the first Ginger to ever break through our Separate But Equal Freckle Barrier. Poor little non-orphan Andie really digs Richey-Bitch Boy Blaine... but WILL THEY GO TO PROM TOGETHER??? 

We play with records, lip-synch to Otis Redding, make a bunch of mom-shaped dresses and punch a locker in rage.  In the end, we find ourselves at prom, making a choice that will fuel decades of pop-culture warfare.  And wasn’t she easy?  And isn’t she pretty in pink? Dave delivers his Prom decree while Noah gives some helpful advice about maintaining that moral compass that lives with the little man in the boat who fishes between the canyons of your thunder thighs. Have a safe prom fatties, and remember, we may not be pretty, but Goddamn us if we can’t tickle you pink!

Avoiding the Noid?  Unless he’s a TimeCop, he’ll never find you in 1988!  So sit down and join us for a slice!  Annabeth Gish, Lilli Taylor, Julia Roberts, and a pre-to-mid-pubescent Matt Damon will keep you company as you snuggle under a blanket of carbohydrates!  Brrrr!  The winds of change blow hard here in the port town of Mystic, CT.  Annabeth Gish is on her way to becoming Yale Material, until she takes a job babysitting for an Architect who owns a mysterious Nautical telescope, along with his other assorted Dark Materials.

All are kept in check by the sassy maid from Two and a Half Men, who puts the Mystic Pizza Parlor on the map with her secret pizza sauce ingredient.  Let’s hope it’s glass.  Or Philip Glass!  

Dave assuages Noah as he comes to terms with his fear of wasps. Noah and Dave argue over what to eat before bogeying off to Mystic, CT, where a drunken chase through The Maze-a-saurus awaits!  Along the way, Dave takes a detour to Haunted Honkey Town and Noah reveals what all the REAL slutty girls put on their walls. Dave makes Halley super jealous with his Cocktail Corner, but it’s her fault, she’s cold as ice and only comes around every 76 years! Thanks for Listening and keep coming back to When Harry Met Fattty, a podcast that fulfills all your comet joke needs.
