Three quick reviews instead of one long one. That was the brilliant plan. To the surprise of no one, however, Adam and Sam are physiologically incapable of abbreviated conversation. On the agenda: the dirty and dusty Australian Western "The Proposition," the Al Gore global warming doc "An Inconvenient Truth," and the Sandra Bullock-Keanu Reeves romance "The Lake House." Despite a surplus of material, the three-part conversation results in some surprises: agreement on "The Proposition" (Sam learns that sadism isn't always a bad thing); a somewhat surprising bit of Gore-bashing; and one host admits to not only liking "The Lake House" (quite a bit, in fact) ... but Keanu Reeves' shockingly natural performance as well. You don't want to miss this.
Also on the show: Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre and a preview of this week's Top 5 ... Character Actors Who Should Be In Every Movie -- inspired by this article in The Onion A.V. Club.
