Despite staying in-studio this time, Adam and Josh continue the tradition of making the first show of the new year a celebratory, post-Top 10 "Wrap Party," with a blissful recounting of their favorite movie moments of 2017. In addition to sharing their favorite scenes of the year (along with opening scenes, funniest scenes, music and most moving moments), they also reveal the winner of the 2017 Golden Brick Award. And stick around for the post-credits "Hot Mics" segment for Adam's story about watching JANE with the in-laws.
