Some movie theaters are installing playgrounds so the children have a place to play. How does that sound? Movie theaters in general have become a corporate soul-less experience and Dale is not happy about it.

The Character Work film of the week is E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial! Is E.T. a child or an adult screw-up? How hot was Elliot’s mom? Would you kill E.T. if he started manipulating your mind? Did you have an alien friend fantasy as a kid?

Also, a St. Patrick’s Day edition of Pitch It!

Box Office Prediction: Beauty and the Beast
Dale: 80 mil
Jim: 46 mil

What’s the most you have ever done for a friend? That’s the crux of our Beverly Hills Cop episode!

With Star Wars Episode 8 being titled “The Last Jedi” we decided to do a Pitch It version of how that movie will pan out. Fire up your lightsabers because this one gets crazy.

M Night’s Split is sounding like the start of something pretty special.

How much do you think the final film of the Resident Evil franchise will do at the box office? 12-26 million was where Dale and Jim landed.

Warning: Due to the Packers losing in the playoffs Dale is still boozed up.
