It's a pair of uneasy couples on this week's show: first up, comedian Patti Harrison as a 20-something surrogate mom to Ed Helms' single 40-something dad in Nikole Beckwith's TOGETHER TOGETHER; and then real-life couple Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth in the '47 noir THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI, with Welles as an Irish drifter who gets caught up in a murder plot when he falls for the seductive Hayworth. Beckwith's movie - her second - is smarter and more satisfying than its high concept suggests; and Welles' formal invention almost makes up for the lack of heat between the married stars, its confounding plot, and its ill-treatment of Hayworth's troubled Elsa. Plus, Josh fills Adam in on what he missed with the Soderbergh-produced Oscars.
