I saw it once and that was likely a decade ago, so it will pretty much all be new to me.

This is an exceptionally short movie and we could almost go without a break, but for the sake of consistency we'll take a break around the 40-minute mark after Joe is apprehended at Costco and separated from Rita.

The Shining just came on the channel I’m watching and I’m tempted to just watch that and comment here on that movie instead. The endings will just about lineup by time.

So I'll admit I'm not that much of a fan of this movie as some people, but I won't let that color my commentary. I might point out some of my beefs. I still think it's clever and worth watching for the group.

Both Mike Judge and Wes Anderson are from Texas, so, maybe.

Dax Shepard went to high school with my college girlfriend by the way. (I don't know if they knew each other as I only found this out a few years ago. Presumably they did not though we might be eskimo brothers for all I know.)

So who is still turning out all of this technology? I think it would almost be funnier if it was implied this was only happening in the United States and we get this stuff from other countries or something.
