Episode 79: Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider – ’50/50,’ ‘Dream House,’ ‘What’s Your Number?’ and ‘Tucker and Dale vs. Evil’
It was Jeff Bayer’s turn to write the summary for Episode 79 of Movie B.S with Bayer and Snider, but he forgot to do it before he left for the airport and Eric D. Snider had to do it instead. This is really symptomatic of the problems in Jeff and Eric’s professional relationship, and it’s only a matter of time before it comes to a head. In the meantime, on the show they both raved about “50/50,” the funny and touching cancer comedy-drama starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen. Both critics also agreed on “Dream House”: it’s terrible. They both liked the gory horror comedy “Tucker and Dale vs. Evil,” too, though Eric liked it more than Jeff did. See? This is what I’m talking about. A perfectly good horror comedy like “Tucker and Dale vs. Evil,” and Jeff doesn’t appreciate it. He’s ungrateful. I guess that’s what it is. He’s just ungrateful. But anyway. Sorry. Jeff saw Anna Faris’ new comedy “What’s Your Number?” and said it’s really bad, so we’re taking his word for it. Then the show got cut a little short because — surprise, surprise — Jeff selfishly had to fly out of town to join his wife and celebrate their anniversary. Ugh. This guy.

About the show …
Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider
Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider are movie critics, but not the stuffy,
elitist kind. They’re not the idiotic fanboy kind either. So what kind
of movie critics are they? The kind with an Internet radio show,
“Movie B.S.” features reviews of new films both good and bad,
smackdowns of the bad movies of yesteryear, and a plethora of other
movie-related features. All of it is tied together by cavalier banter
between Bayer and Snider, who noticed that there was a dearth of
cavalier banter on the Internet and sought to rectify that.
