#653: The Meyerowitz Stories / Top 5 Noah Baumbach Characters

themeyorwitz(sp?)stories.jpg

The characters in writer/director Noah Baumbach’s films are neurotic, hyper-articulate and often have unresolved issues with their dads. It’s true of movies like "The Squid and the Whale" and "Margot at the Wedding," and it’s true of his latest, THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES, with Dustin Hoffman as the bad dad, and Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler and Elizabeth Marvel as his dysfunctional kids. Like the good dads they are, Adam and Josh dote on MEYEROWITZ and share their Top 5 Baumbach Characters. Plus, Massacre Theatre and a post-credits "Hot Mics" segment with Adam's reaction to "Blade Runner 2049."
