For Episode 49 we break the no Adam Sandler rule to review the 2017 Noah (Bumbag) Baumbach film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected). Joining us are returning guests Gail Porter and Heat’s Boyd Hilton.

The Meyerowitz Stories

If you’re a fan of dysfunctional family comedy dramas set in New York you’ll be in for a treat with Baumbach stepping in to fill the neurotic void now it’s no longer okay to watch Woody Allen films.

Anti Sandler enthusiasts Gail and Helen had different reactions – Gail didn’t bother to watch the film but Helen enjoyed the film and would consider re-watching Punch Drunk Love as a result. Starring Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Elizabeth Marvel and Emma Thompson, it’s a fantastic ensemble cast and although re-treads some familiar Baumbach territory (difficulty in parking in New York) and isn’t his best (see Frances Ha, The Squid and the Whale…) it’s funny in places and recommended for completists.

Scores

Scoring 3.85 overall, brought down massively by Gail not having seen it – not a challenger to our highest Flixwatcher
rated film What We Do In The Shadows ·but worth a watch.
