What happens when you take four of the funniest, most talented actresses from the 20th century and put them in a movie together? Probably something different than what happens when you do it in the 21st century. Diane Keaton, Candace Bergen, Jane Fonda, and Mary Steenburgen are old friends who meet up regularly to drink wine, talk about books, drink wine, talk about their lives, drink wine, and snack. And drink wine. Then, they are confronted with the book (assuming you want to call it that) Fifty Shades of Grey, and they all start confronting issues in their sex lives (or lack thereof) accompanied by coincidentally timed meet-cutes with Don Johnson, Andy Garcia, Richard Dreyfuss, and more. And let’s face it: this is for your parents. Perhaps, grandparents, as long as they’re partial to two hours of non-stop sexual innuendo. But hey, I’m writing this and I’m (Chris) the guy who didn’t like it. Coming in with the dissenting opinion on the review with me is George and Mike “100 Subs” Riojas. Check it out here.

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.
