On the 126th episode of Piecing It Together, Jason Harris joins me for another female led high school buddy comedy (after our previous episode on Booksmart), Banana Split. It’s a really funny, sweet coming-of-age story that deserves a lot more attention than it’s getting. Puzzle pieces include Ghost World, Up, Ingrid Goes West and I Love You, Man.
I Love You Man
On the 96th episode of Piecing It Together, Isaac Vanegas from The Broken Mug Podcast joins me to discuss the Kumail Nanjiani / Dave Bautista / Uber team-up action comedy Stuber. Is it a great movie? Not exactly. Was it hilarious? Not really. Did it have a lot of awesome action? Not particularly… But hey, it wasn’t that bad. Puzzle pieces include Lethal Weapon, Crank, Collateral and I Love You Man.
On the 31st episode of Piecing It Together, we are joined for a second time in a row by co-host Jacob Tiranno to talk about A Simple Favor, a mystery that comes to us from “the darker side of Paul Feig,” the comedy director best known for Bridesmaids and the Ghostbusters reboot. It’s a solid mystery that still manages to squeeze in plenty of Feig’s style of comedy and some great performances from Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. Puzzle pieces include Gone Girl, Big Little Lies, Lifetime movies and The Talented Mr. Ripley.
