On This Week’s Show: Before Kevin and Neil weigh in on the movies opening this week, they take a heartfelt look at the situation brewing between Kevin Smith and Southwest Airlines. And they have so much to say, you’ll need two seats to hear it all. They also give their opinions on Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island as well as looking back on last week’s The Wolfman and Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. Finally, they lay down their lamest Fat Guy Five ever.
