56 - Catch and Release

Behold: a movie that shows you how to grieve the right way. Sussanah Grant’s CATCH AND RELEASE may look like an average rom-com vehicle full of beautiful charismatic people – and oh god are they all gorgeous -- but underneath it all lies enough pain and confusion to create a thousand ugly crying faces. Listen to Alex and Julio swoon for Jennifer Garner and Timothy Olyphant, marvel at a rare Kevin Smith performance written and directed by someone other than himself, and confirm that anything is automatically better when you add Juliette Lewis to the mix. It’s the first half of our Kevin Smith Appreciation Two-Parter!

Plus: a brief discussion of GOOD TIME and JIM AND ANDY during Real Talk!
