  1. Guys, I was cringing all through your discussion of screwball comedies. Porky’s and Tommy Boy and Van Wilder are not remotely screwball. Screwball refers to those old movies with Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn where everyone is unbelievably witty and talks a million words a minute. The modern equivalents are The Gilmore Girls and Coen Brothers (especially The Hudsucker Proxy and Hail Caesar).

    The Money Pit is screwballish, as is the movie it’s remaking, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. But Cary Grant would beat you over the head if he heard you comparing him to Chris Farley.

  2. I get what you were saying about punching up/down/self. But you missed the point a bit about when saying, when in doubt punch Trump. While in theory, punching the president (who supposedly is the most powerful person on earth) should be the ultimate punch-up, in practice it is often interpreted by his supporters (or even republicans who don’t necessarily support him) as an attack on them. So while you think you are attacking the safest target, it’s seen by almost half the country as an attack on them.

  3. The Tom Hanks before Tom Hanks was Jimmy Stewart. Pop star is a surprisingly funny movie, I loved it. Keanu is probably the best most recent screwball movie. Never stop never stopping guys.

  4. I’m going to say Cant buy me love and Love don’t cost a thing are remakes that don’t share the same title.( I’m teasing Scott, sorry). I watched this over and over on ShowTime when I was a kid ( my father wouldn’t pay for HBO, it cost more), so I didn’t watch it over for this sack, but maybe I should have. You guys make it sound really funny.

    Good point Scott, Bill Hader should play Tom Hanks, in his bio pic.
