Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 120 – One Fat Proposal

Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: Kevin and Neil say “Screw the new films!” and dive into a bed of controversy – Kevin for calling both Sarah Palin and David Letterman idiots and Neil for some racial comments we’re sure he’ll have to apologize for at some point. Oh, and they do talk a little bit about The Proposal and Year One. Later in the show, they unveil a Fat Guy Five about classic historical comedies, and Neil makes the case for Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb even though it was a contemporary comedy in the 60s. And the final answer has also been delivered as to whether Neil can do an effective Schwarzenegger impression.
