The fourth freshman film up for discussion is Sam Mendes' 1999 award winner, American Beauty. Our hosts break with tradition with a no-holds-barred criticism of its questionable themes and message. Jeremy sows seeds of marital discord in his own home while Daniel offers thoughts on what not to do after narrowly avoiding coital contact with a minor. Also, the boys ask the most confounding question of all: how did a film so wobbly win the hearts of so many?
