  1. Just out of curiosity based on that truly upsetting Second Opinion, what is your comfort movie/s? I don't know if it counts but I rewatch John Mulaney , Maria Bamford and a few other comics stand ups specials . I also really love the movie Clue and What We Do In The Shadows.
  2. Why is Jennifer getting job leads from her son? In the interview she mentioned that he is the person who told her about the position they are hiring for. She then backs that up by apologizing for not knowing what she's applying for and says that her son is only 7 . She seems shocked that Pistachio is actually named Pistachio (which fair. Though you named your kid Barney so glass houses and all bitch). Like she thought her son made his name up. So she took the advice of her seven year old to apply for a random job she knows nothing about, where she shows up dressed very casually after yoga class no resume to be seen , for a job with a man whose name she doesn't even know. Either she is INCREDIBLY desperate for work (and that sweet sweet dental insurance) or she has confidence I can only dream about.
  3. This fits with my theory of their being fake Italians. I now believe they have been faking it since his birth.
  4. So as June noted the Master of Disguise ... Clan? Business? Organization? Whatever they call themselves, is apparently made up of only men with no women in the Disguisey family using the Master of Disguise powers. So is it just because Mama married into the family ( I assume) and the powers of Disguise are genetic and Pistachio is an only child ? Or are the women in the family regardless of marrying into or being born in the family not allowed/cannot inherit the powers. If it's the latter case what happens if a generation is just girls? Are there no masters? Do they have to marry and their husbands become the masters? Do they just hope that they can crank out a male heir? Is this a Henry VIII situation waiting to happen?
  5. I feel like this describes the movie PERFECTLY "1000 faces and not a single clue" is exactly how I would describe this movie.
  6. Is this movie fixable/ saveable? Like I'm on board with the idea of a family who solves crime with the help of disguises. So is there a world where that bare bones idea works? Or is this just not possible?
  7. I'm going to shock you guys but... I don't think the Disguisey are really Italian! They CLAIM to be from Italy. HOWEVER their name ends in a Y! This is important because most Italian surnames end in a vowel, like Medici, Ferrero, or Brambilla. According to Wikipedia " A large number of Italian surnames end in i, due to the medieval Italian habit of identifying families by the name of the ancestors in the plural (which have an -i suffix in Italian). For instance, Filippo from the Ormanno family (gli Ormanni) would be called "signor Filippo degli Ormanni" ("Mr. Filippo of the Ormannos"). In time, the middle possessive portion ("of the") was dropped, but surnames became permanently pluralized and never referred to in the singular, even for a single person. Filippo Ormanno would therefore be known as Filippo Ormanni.[9] Some families, however, opted to retain the possessive portion of their surnames, for instance Lorenzo de' Medici literally means "Lorenzo of the Medici" (de' is a contraction of dei, also meaning "of the"; c.f. The Medicis). Some common suffixes indicate endearment (which may also become pluralized and receive an -i ending), for example: -ello/illo/etto/ino (diminutive "little"), e.g., Bernardello, Vettorello, Iannuccillo, Bortoletto, Bernardino, Ravellino, Verdino -one/ne (augmentative "big"), e.g., Mangione, Bellone, Capone, Pastene, Mantone, Vallone -accio/azzo/asso (pejorative[10]), e.g., Boccaccio, Terrazzo, Varasso" Also you could have an ending based on your region. The few areas where names often end in consonants are Sardinia ( apparently Sardinian is a unrelated Romance language that doesn't follow the same rules. ) , the North East (specifically Veneto and Friuli were brought up a lot on message boards . Apparently the latter is near Croatia and Slovenia and during the fascist regime names were "italiniated" with an ending i.), Names of Jewish descent ( often they were emigrants often). But those names tend to end in S, N, and ICH. S for Sardinia Like Piars, Marras, N for Veneto with Furlan, Brusadin, and for Friuli more Slavic names like Cosulich or Marinich. You get German sounding names in cities near the Austrian alps as well. However notice that not a single one of these kinds of names ends in a Y ! You want to know why?! BECAUSE ITALIAN LACKS THE LETTER Y!!!!!!! Italian has 21 letters in their alphabet and lacks J, K, W, X and Y motherfuckers! They are apparently present in loanwords , or words from other languages, and have their own pronunciation but aren't I'm the official alphabet. I'm telling you the Disguisey family are frauds! Why else would they live like extreme Italian stereotypes? To put people off the scent! It's just yet another layer of deceit! Could it have been the mistake of a careless person at Ellis island? Probably not. The myth of workers at Ellis island changing people's names is one that has been disprove n a bunch of times. Names were actually taken from ships manifests. They were most likely written in the person's country of origin and by someone who spoke the passengers language. Also interpreters were used if need be. The manifests were used to confirm the identity and then checked off. The only name change could happen if a person CHOSE IT. Also they had to do so BEFORE getting to Ellis island because it would be the name they put on the manifest! If course once in the country you could also easily drop your old identity if you wished. Therefore I believe that the "Disguisey" family went to Italy on purpose to flee and add a new layer of disguise to the family. What were they fleeing? A job gone wrong? An old enemy who was about to unmask them? Were they being kicked out of town for their flatulence? I demand answers!
  8. Do we think this is a better get than the Bratz movie she lost out on?
  9. Can you imagine being in a turtle suit processing 9/11? The mind reels
  10. I remember renting the vhs from the local video store as a kid. I think I liked it because I was a child and it was a movie. But was also deeply disappointed in what I was given? I know that I was mostly upset by the lack of Turtle work. I felt like the trailer promised me more of that nonsense than I got. I think that this was the first time I was let down by a movie and realized movies could be bad
  11. Honestly Breen is like a character from the show. I could see Nate playing a version of Breen for a con or them conning Breen. Someone please I beg you write me ridiculous fan fic where this movie is the result of a con . I mean it's basically a con on viewers as is
  12. I mean... Maybe those celebrities run a conspiracy. Maybe Breen with his amazing mind and hacking is the only true non corrupt actor!!! No but seriously he's like the misshapen vague dollar store version of Hutton if you kind of squint. It's the hair and the need to monologue.
  13. Or Timothy Hutton? ( I might still be slightly obsessed with Leverage)
  14. So I don't think that Emily was trying to get drugs from Boardroom , ( I assume he would write scripts for more of Dylan's meds?) Unless Dylan was on benzodiazepines like say Xanax or Valium she would not be getting a high off his medication. Trust me there's no rush from downing a Prozac or a Buspar. At most you get lucky with a Seroquel type and you get super sleepy. Anti depressants and anti psychotics while great for those of us who need them to function are never going to be the new it party drug. Now if you will excuse me I have to go chase the Cymbalta dragon!
  15. I think your right! I'm not sure if she would be allowed to speak to Boardroom Therapist if he hadn't signed anything though. Like if someone in my family tried to call my therapist to say they were concerned about me they probably could talk to the receptionist but that's it.
  16. Someone has had sex on camera on that couch and I'm only 25% positive it wasn't Neil Breen
  17. I thought that too! I was convinced that she hated her for being her step mom... Also for you know shooting her dad.
  18. It would technically not be illegal for the boardroom therapist to contact Emily if Dylan has signed a waiver form putting her as a contact the therapist could share information with. Then it would still be within HIPAA law guidelines. However Boardroom therapist MUST get Dylan's consent or anything he says to anyone is an EXTREME violation. The only way he could break that confidentiality is: "American Psychological Association’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct standard 4.05(b), β€œPsychologists disclose confidential information without the consent of the individual only as mandated by law, or where permitted by law for a valid purpose such as to (1) provide needed professional services; (2) obtain appropriate professional consultations; (3) protect the client/patient, psychologist, or others from harm; or (4) obtain payment for services from a client/patient, in which instance disclosure is limited to the minimum that is necessary to achieve the purpose.” Also I'm pretty sure if the client admits to hurting / endangering a minor or someone who is unable to protect/ defend themselves like with elder abuse or neglect/ abuse of a mentally disabled adult they have to report. I think therapist and other social service types are mandated reporters. I'm not sure if that's a federal thing or if it's state by state law.
  19. Ok so according to a source ( the boyfriend of the roommate of a girl I was seeing and the person who introduced me to this film early last year) Neal shoots with his own Ferrari/ cars and at his house in every movie he does or almost every one. The foyer of the psychiatrist is his house and maybe that pool party area is his backyard? I haven't been able to get any solid proof of this though. I will keep digging! I interacted with a child recently and am now, of course, ill so I'm not strong enough to watch his entire oeuvre to check.
  20. Honestly unless it's a Real Housewife ( or better yet a HotWife) or someone who is a catty camp queen like Joan Collins, I would 100% shoot someone for throwing a drink on me. Like I'm terrified of guns but fuck that bullshit. Fuck that bullshit straight to the horrifying black box trash bag hell!
  22. I will go to my grave upset over the number of laptops this man owns.
  23. Which Daniel could star in as a low budget Property Ghost Brother
  24. While not sex with ghosts there is a Chinese practice of marrying off single dead people to each other or Ghost Marriage.Married dead people have more advantages in the after life, and so do their living family in many cultures. Also there's the fear that a single person might haunt you and cause sickness and misfortune. The problem is that there are currently far more men in China than women. Also Men Technically Ghost Marriage is outlawed ( and you might understand why) but it's still widely practiced in Northern parts of China. So the most common form is a marriage between two dead single people, however living women have been involved in these ritual marriages recently( more on this on a bit) . So traditionally a "bride's" family would ask for a bride price and even get a dowery according to a BBC article I read " there is even a dowry, which includes jewellery, servants and a mansion - but all in the form of paper tributes. Factors like age and family background are as essential as they are in more traditional weddings, so families hire feng shui masters to work as a match-maker. The wedding ceremony will typically involve the funeral plaque of the bride and the groom and a banquet. The most important part is digging up the bones of the bride and putting them inside the groom's grave. " This is where we get a problem. As I mentioned because of China's vast disparity between the sexes due to China's One Child policy and the favouring of boys there's not a lot of dead single women... So some people are turning to grave robbing ( and worse). Some women's bodies are stolen, interred, dug up and sold again. ( more from the same article) " Huang Jingchun, the head of the Chinese department at Shanghai University who carried out a field study on ghost weddings in Shanxi between 2008 and 2010, the price of a corpse or the bones of a young woman has risen sharply. At the time of his research such remains would fetch around 30,000 to 50,000 yuan (Β£3,400 to Β£5,700; $4,500 to $7,500). He estimates the price these days could be up to 100,000 yuan. The sale of corpses was outlawed in 2006 but that hasn't stopped grave robbers. A man arrested in Liangcheng County, Inner Mongolia last year told police officers that he murdered a woman so that he could make money by selling her body to a family looking for a ghost bride. " I first learned about Ghost Marriage watching a video of on of my favorite youtubers and authors Caitlin Doughty. She's a fascinating mortician and death positive activist. Her video on the subject is both funny and far more informative than I . ( I can't make this other video go away. Please enjoy a second helping of the Death Mother) https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-37103447
  25. What exactly was Daniel doing in England for a summer at the Savoy? He claims he learned to make the Hanky Panky from it's creator the famed bartender Ada Coleman ( one of only two women to ever hold the job as head bartender to this DAY) If he died in 1920 I would think that he would have served in WW1. Are you telling me he served as a barback? Because I don't see him getting over there before 1914 to just spend a summer as an intern. I've always read you STIR a Hanky Panky instead of shaking it like he did.
