EP038 – Country Strong (2010)

The cast reviews the winner of last month’s poll: Country Strong, starring Gwynneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, eighton Meester, and Garrett Hedlund. On a related note, we may not be doing any more polls, as it’s clear our listeners are cruel, cruel monsters.

Highlights from Episode 37

  • Did you know Kathleen hates Gwynneth Paltrow?
  • Everyone in the main cast sings except Tim McGraw, who is the only professional singer. In a movie about country music.
  • The movie is darker and much more melodramatic than the cast is accustomed to. Well, darker anyway.
  • One of the main characters is named Beau Hutton. Get it? Bow Hunting? Sigh.
  • Is it possible to discuss Gwynneth Paltrow without mentioning candles, steaming, or stones in relation to lady parts?
  • Invoking George Carlin, Dave brings up whether dressing in a cowboy hat and boots is a costume akin to wearing a viking outfit.
