Do Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson make a good on-screen husband and wife? Or has Sofology forever dented his acting chops? Laurie saw their new weepy film Wonder, also with Jacob Tremblay, and managed to catch Dan Stevens in the Charles Dickens almost-biopic The Man Who Invented Christmas for good measure. Phil speaks up for The Mask of Zorro as an under-appreciated classic, and also braves our first throw-away Christmas movie of the year in Nativity! with Martin Freeman.

Kenny B attempts to breathe new life into Agatha Christie’s eccentric Belgian detective as he directs & stars as Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express. Laurie chalked up another sequel no one asked for in A Bad Moms Christmas with Mila Kunis & Susan Sarandon, and WWBW returns with Phil’s views on Natalie Portman in Jackie and Julia Roberts’ debut in Mystic Pizza, while Laurie brings Bruce Willis in Surrogates to the table. We also spend a bit of time chatting through the odd experience of books/original sources that make you think worse of their film adaptations.
