The boys take on Winnie the Pooh and his friends this week as we talk about Disney's newest live action film, Christopher Robin. To our shock, we didn't care for this one too much, even though it got Rick to cry. Join us as we talk about our surprise at our negative reactions to the film, why the storytelling gets all jumbled up, and why it's a film about joy that doesn't have enough of it. David struggles to keep his eyes open. Rick puts out a parental advisory warning due to language. All that and more!
