This week on the Frotcast, ex-film critic, author of ‘Film Critic,’ and star of ‘Whoop Dreams’ Laremy Legel rejoins Matt and Vince in the Zoom Frotquarters to discuss Jon Stewart’s new movie IRRESISTiBLE, starring Steve Carell and Rose Byrne as dueling political consultants who wage proxy war in a Wisconsin town. At first we were like “why the hell is this movie called ‘Irresistible?’ But then the title comes up at the end with some creative typography and we were like “Oohhh, that’s why it’s called Irresistible.”
Aaaanyway, we discuss our historic love of Jon Stewart and debate why this movie is getting such bad reviews. On one level, it’s kind of a good movie masquerading as a bad one for two acts, and you could argue that’s a weird move, but on another level it seems like certain people disliked it because it committed some sin against media orthodoxy by pointing out the Democrats are also bad. GRR, BOTH SIDESISM! Anyway, Rose Byrne is great.
After that we discuss Matt getting mistaken for the worst #resistance grifter and whether Alex Jones is actually Dan Carlin’s Wario.
