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.
