“Hey, come on, Spy was funny”. This was the refrain oft-heard before the screening of Melissa McCarthy and her director/writer husband Ben Falcone’s latest film, Life of the Party. The desperate refrain of critics trying to shed themselves of expectations. But oh, how those instinctual expectations were justified. McCarthy plays a housewife and mom who when her husband unexpectedly dumps her, decides to go back to college and finish out her degree. The same college her daughter is finishing her senior year in. But this ain’t no Back to School. No indeedy. Listen to Chris, Marco, Michael’s brave tale of survival.

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.
