Director Noah Baumbach returns with another dramedy about a dysfunctional family. Shocker. But are we complaining? No, because nobody does these things better than he does. This time around, Adam Sandler (yes, Adam Sandler) and Elizabeth Marvel play brother and sister who are reengaging with their half-brother (Ben Stiller) when their irascible artist father (Dustin Hoffman) needs them. Anger come to the surface with years of simmering paternal resentment on all sides and there’s as much hurt as humor. But how does it stack up to the rest of Baumbach’s filmography? Listen to Chris, Marco, Kim, and Ian to find out.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
