    Jarrod, Jim, and Karl look at 2018's GOTTI, starring the always-at-11 John Travolta and directed by Kevin Connolly, best known as the kid who shows Elly May around in THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES (1993). And also--Dios mío--Stacy Keach!

    Today we watched the heartwarming wrestling comedy FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY, starring a pre-Swedish-death-cult Florence Pugh as the WWE Diva wrestler Paige. After a bit we segue into a side discussion of THE WRONG MISSY, an Adam Sandler production that is way better than it needed to be. FIGHTING is available on Prime and Hulu, MISSY is on Netflix.

    This week Jarrod, Jim, and Karl watched BERNIE, the 2011 film based on a true murder, starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, and Baker Dill himself Matthew McConaughey. We discuss predatory funeral directors, intra-Texas rivalries, and the presence of iPhones in a movie that takes place in the '90s. The movie is available on Prime, and also for free on Tubi, YouTube, Pluto, PopcornFlix, Crackle, Roku Channel, and I'm pretty sure some UHF channels.
