This week Kris starts off by recommending a title for Dave's autobiography. Dave gets a good laugh out of that before explaining why he doesn't watch bad '80s John Travolta movies (except "Urban Cowboy") and why Debra Winger is one of his least favorite onscreen presences. After that he talks about how "Hot Pursuit" tries to subvert buddy comedy cliches and fails. In the process, Kris describes how he got accidentally hooked on "The New Girl." Then he and Evan talk about the layers and complexity in "Far from the Madding Crowd" that make it such an enjoyable film. Finally, Dave wraps things up with his take on "Playing it Cool," a romantic comedy which has some decent moments, but mostly gets demerits from him for "being dumb as shit."
