GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY, THE MENU, and THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING on Episode #436

Daniel Craig sits inside the Glass Onion looking like he's irritated in the movie Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.We start the show this week by reviewing Claire Scanlon’s impressively unfunny comedy THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING (2:30), which is about dysfunctional siblings (Kristen Bell and Ben Platt) who reluctantly travel to the UK with their mom (Allison Janney) for their half-sister’s wedding. Next, we delve into Mark Mylod’s delicious social satire/horror film THE MENU (18:48), where a hyper-exclusive dining experience turns into a battle of wits between its mastermind chef (Ralph Fiennes) and an unexpected diner (Anya Taylor-Joy). Then we wrap up with Rian Johnson’s wildly entertaining whodunnit GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY (42:10), the much-anticipated sequel to Johnson’s murder mystery hit KNIVES OUT. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about a Patron’s choice, Griffin Dunne’s 1998 film PRACTICAL MAGIC, starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman!

She and Evan have disagreements about the following film AFTER CLASS aka SAFE SPACES (37:58), which played at this year’s Boston Jewish Film Festival, although they still appreciate a lot of the same scenes.
