Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 126 – The Rise of Chubby

Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: Kevin throws some hatred Neil’s way for being one of the few critics in the country to be allowed to see G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA. They put their differences aside for a brief moment to discuss the alien holocaust movie known as Julie & Julia. Then the claws come out as the Fat Guys have a smackdown about whether A Perfect Getaway sucks or rocks. Then, in honor of films like G.I. Joe and Transformers 2, they throw down a Fat Guy Five about movies that aren’t great but they loved as kids.

Kevin Carr crawled from the primordial ooze in the early 1970s. He grew up watching movies to the point of irritation for his friends and was a font of useless movie knowledge until he decided to put that knowledge to good use. Now, Kevin is a nationally syndicated critic, heard on dozens of radio stations around the country, and his reviews appear in a variety of online outlets. Kevin is also a proud member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA), the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS), and the Central Ohio Film Critics Association (COFCA).
