Will and Maggie discuss the 2004 adventure-heist film "National Treasure" with dad guest star Jack Walsh. As the film is pretty much just a vehicle for Nick Cage, we found that certain elements—like character development—leave something to be desired, but this could actually be what endears "National Treasure" to dads: All they're really looking for is a movie that's kid friendly and easy to follow along with, so they can tune in at any point. Much to Jack's disappointment, there is no explicit reference to the Illuminati in "National Treasure." Jack only wanted to watch the film to figure out how his 8-year-old daughter's classmates seemed to know about this secret society turned pop-culture meme; he assumed they learned about it from watching "National Treasure." How did Jack discover that his daughter was learning about the Illuminati from one of her classmates? Let's just say it involves a school project and a lemonade stand.
