Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 151 – From Paris With Fat

Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: Neil has finished his gallivanting, and he makes his triumphant return to the Magical Studio in the Sky, only to promptly put his foot in his mouth by comparing the harrowing days of the Sundance Film Festival to the war in Afghanistan. Kevin quickly saves the day by calling shenanigans on John Travolta for adopting his super-cool badass look, then puts his own foot in his mouth by suggesting that Kathryn Bigelow will win the Oscar because she’s a woman. Get ready to be offended, folks! The Fat Guys are back in action. (And by “action,” we mean “sitting their fat asses on the couch.”)

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).
