Surviving Christmas

December 7, 2017

In the first of two Christmas-themed flicks this month, Nathan and Brendan attempt to... well... survive "Surviving Christmas."

They go into a lot of background on the film like how it was a colossal box office failure when it opened in October (?), Ben Affleck's character being a total psychopath, the movie being comprised of tons of improv but the one great improvisational performer being completely shortchanged, the character of "Dooda," Catherine O'Hara's very complicated character trajectory, the last half-hour of the movie that plays out like a sitcom and much more. Plus: Brendan can NOT tell the difference between Chris Evans and Chris Pine.

Also: listen in for a clue regarding the next great Christmas movie that will be covered.

Our theme song was recorded by Taylor Sheasgreen. You can check out him and his band Lionsault on Facebook.
