Big Tommy ,

Love it!

While i disagree with a lot of the drawn conclusions, this is fun and funny. Amazing how many different perspectives there can be on one piece of film. Episode 7 should have come first—the true Brit and the American expat give excellent insight that would have been valuable to the hosts from the beginning. I watch this movie every year as a part of our Christmas movies all advent/Christmastide, and any extra just brings joy!

Hilarious and Informative

The perfect podcast to listen to and laugh with while you're getting ready for Christmas.

Giving me life!

So fully disclosure I have never seen this movie all the way through. But listening to these folks discuss it is absolutely a delightful way to pass a few hours! The talk is honest and funny but filled with respect and some affection for the movie (at least as much as it deserves). The different guests have such a variety of takes that each episode is different and fresh and fun. Great idea for a limited-run holiday podcast!
