Love this show!

They’re both hilarious and even though I’ve seen all the movies, I enjoy their funny recaps and banter.

Great premise and awesome hosts!

This is my new favorite podcast. It’s a great idea, and the hosts have funny banter together. The segments towards the end add a nice touch too!
