    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    I wish the film had been more consistent with its own internal logic. During the first Copper Mountain Brewery event after Tessa gives her speech, one of the other investors’ wives points out to Julia that Tessa won’t even actually take a sip of the beer because she doesn’t want the calories. But throughout the rest of the film we see Tessa drinking copious amounts of wine. As you can see in the infographic below, while wine does not have quite as many calories as beer, it is certainly not a calorie-free beverage. We also see Tessa have two margaritas at lunch with Julia. According to nutritionaction.com “Most restaurant chains’ mojitos, Moscow mules, and margaritas deliver 200 to 300 calories. Chili’s Strawberry or Mango Patrón Margarita hits 360. But a classic margarita—tequila, lime, triple sec—in a small glass cuts most of the sugar and hovers around 200 calories.” And how have we not talked about Tessa vaping yet?!? For a woman so consumed with beauty, she sure has a lot of unhealthy habits.

    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    I felt the extended timeline in this film was unnecessary and created more problems for the story. This film seemingly takes place over a six month period. Seemingly Katherine Heigl sets her plan to ruin Rosario Dawson’s life in action fairly quickly. If so, this would mean that Heigl is spending a lot of time establishing a fake relationship with Vargas. And I have a hard time believing that Vargas would just be cool having a 6 month virtual relationship with Julia after she put out a restraining order on him. He seems like the type who would want to find her immediately to either sleep with her or physically abuse her. Also, are we to believe that no one else came across Julia’s Facebook account. I’m constantly getting asked if I want to be friends with people who I barely have any connection to and yet her fake account seemingly goes unnoticed by everyone else. Surely Whitney Cummings or another one of her ChapterPad friends had to have gotten a notification that she was now on Facebook.

    Remote (1993)

    This straight-to-VHS ripoff of Home Alone involving a boy fending off three inept crooks with his remote control toys including this bizarre German doll with a Hitler mustache seems perfect for the HDTGM crew.

    Episode 221. The Hottie and the Nottie

    Seeing that pic of young Nate reminded me...did anyone else think that Jane looked more like the grown up version of that kid than the guy playing adult Nate?

    Episode 221. The Hottie and the Nottie

    At one point Johann says the the problem with June's teeth is that she has 'fluorosis' which I had never heard before, but after doing some research is an actual malady. And June and Jason's point about June being the victim of neglect as a child seems to have merit based on what WebMD says about fluorosis. Fluorosis is described as "a cosmetic condition that affects the teeth. It’s caused by overexposure to fluoride during the first eight years of life. Fluorosis first attracted attention in the early 20th Century. Researchers were surprised by the high prevalence of what was called “Colorado Brown Stain” on the teeth of native-born residents of Colorado Springs. The stains were caused by high levels of fluoride in the local water supply. Although fluorosis is not a disease, its effects can be psychologically distressing and difficult to treat. Parental vigilance can play an important role in preventing fluorosis. A major cause of fluorosis is the inappropriate use of fluoride-containing dental products such as toothpaste and mouth rinses. Sometimes, children enjoy the taste of fluoridated toothpaste so much that they swallow it instead of spitting it out. But there are other causes of fluorosis. For example, taking a higher-than-prescribed amount of a fluoride supplement during early childhood can cause it. So can taking a fluoride supplement when fluoridated drinking water or fluoride-fortified fruit juices and soft drinks already provide the right amount." WebMD also states that only 1% of all cases of fluorosis are considered severe, which is what June's case would be described as. To have such a severe case, my guess is that June's parents were giving her fluoride supplements with the same regularity that Arno's mom gives him holiday snacks.

    Michael Bay Fight Club Theory

    If true, it would be ironic that a Paul is a proponent of Team Sanity.
  7. Can someone explain to me why they needed to take the blood machine out of the Ukraine facility? Wouldn’t it have been easier for her to remove the virus there while Hobbs and Shaw distracted everyone? Given that this was a time-sensitive matter it seems stupid and reckless trying to get the machine out of the facility.
  8. As someone who has never seen any of the F&F movies, I too was wondering if there was a backstory for The Rock’s wife that I wasn’t aware of. There is a throwaway line when the Rock is talking to his daughter where he says that she needs to stay with her aunt. This makes that whole family tree project confusing. Why wasn’t this aunt included on the tree? And even if the Rock’s wife is dead, wouldn’t the wife have had some relatives that she could have added to the tree as well?
  9. I completely agree. I also found Fred to be more tolerable too. Perhaps we should be Team Movie vs. Team Deleted Scenes.

    HDTGM movie defenders

    This was an idea that was raised in the Drop Dead Fred thread, but I thought it was a topic that merited it’s own thread. What is the film(s) that the show has covered that you not only unapologetically love, but also hated hearing Paul, Jason and/or June say negative things about it? For me, the only two that come to mind are A View to a Kill - I don’t really think any Bond film belongs on a show like this and it felt like they only did it to do the crossover with the James Bond podcast hosts. And if you are going to do a Bond film, I feel there are worse films in the franchise that they could have chosen instead. Jingle All the Way - This is one that my family makes a point of watching every Christmas and while it’s not a good movie, there are a lot of lines from it that we quote from it all the time.
  11. So has anyone else watched these deleted and alternate scenes? There is some very interesting and revealing stuff. Highlights include: A different meet cute scene between Lizzie and Mickey at a bank (after she discovers that Charles has already removed her name from his bank account) Lizzie meeting Mickey’s daughter during the meet cute One of the imaginary friends eating the psychiatrist’s table More upskirt peeping in the ladies’ room at the wine tasting party And most important of all - a scene where Fred takes Lizzie to a place where all the imaginary friends live that VERY much resembles Monsters Inc. And while they are there a “boss” says on a loudspeaker that Fred needs to report to his next child immediately.
  12. I agree that that would have been a better ending. But if you're going to do the ending that they go with, then there needed to be more scenes with the daughter throughout the movie. Show that her mother was similarly awful (hence why Ron Eldard got a divorce from her) and that now that Fred was no longer needed in Lizzie's life he could move on and help this girl instead. BTW, I don't think this gets brought up in the episode, but the little girl also calls him Drop Dead Fred. If he was simply a manifestation of Lizzie's mind, then that would be an awfully big coincidence that this little girl would give him the exact same name.
  13. I was confused as to whether Lizzie was actually allergic to gladiolas or not. If you notice, in every instance it is not until Fred points out that she is near the flowers that she starts sneezing. If I walk into a person's house and they own cats, I will start sneezing automatically. I don't need the owner to point out the fact that they own a cat for me to start sneezing. The film had a tendency to drop in a lot of weird things like that they never really had any pay off. Like the fact that in the one flashback, the headline on the paper states that we just landed on the moon. Why choose such an iconic moment in history as your headline if it has nothing to do with anything else? That said, because of that information, that would make Lizzie close to 30 if the adult scenes are to have taken place in 1991. There's also the weird cop behavior after Lizzie and Fred go on their burglar trip. They bust down the door of the house rather quickly and then immediately arrest the dad when there is no indication that he is the one who is actually robbing the place. I briefly thought they were trying to suggest the dad ultimately left his family because he was tired of being the victim of Fred's and/or Lizzie's antics. The "meet-cute" scene with Lizzie and Ron Eldard also seems to suggest storylines that never come to fruition. The way the scene is filmed, he sets down his attache/briefcase in the middle of the floor, making me think he wanted her to trip over it and bump into him. The fact that he inspires Lizzie to discover Fred again and that his daughter has bonded with Fred made me think that he was communicating with or working with Fred in some capacity. Ron Eldard says that his divorce happened a couple of years ago, so it is never clear why he is at the courthouse on the day he sees Lizzie. And why was he carrying a document that had a picture of his daughter attached to it?
  14. The movie is so muddled it is tough to really debate on either side, but I do enjoy a good debate so I'll just offer a few counterpoints here. In terms of the two "abusive" relationships - Tim Matheson had tried to end things with Lizzie when he originally got together with Annabella. It's not like Fred really helped her see that he had feelings for someone else. As for the mother, I would contend that any malice or abuse that the mother exhibits towards Lizzie is all a result of her bad behavior when Fred is around. We never (at least I don't recall) see any scenes of the mother being verbally abusive to Lizzie prior to Fred showing. That doesn't excuse the abuse, just saying that if Lizzie doesn't have Fred in her life, the mother may have acted completely different. Again, the movie is so poor that it's tough to really figure out what is the correct interpretation, but I enjoy the back and forth nonetheless.
  15. I did think about that and wasn't sure whether or not to add that point because of it. But you could argue that after Carrie Fisher's embarrassing incident at work where she appears to beat up an imaginary child and exposes her relationship with the wet dreams guy that she may have realized it is not worth it to be friends with Lizzie anymore.
