Just Keep Swimming

The Breakdown of 'Good Boys', 'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark', 'Otherhood', 'The Edge of Democracy' and Remembering Peter Fonda


The latest episode of The Movie Breakdown is here to enhance your summer Monday with movie talk. We review two theatrical releases in the raunchy coming of age comedy in Good Boys and a horror picture based on a popular book series in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. We also have two Netflix Originals including the comedy about under-appreciated mothers in Otherhood and the political documentary The Edge of Democracy. We also pay tribute to an icon from the 1960s in Peter Fonda. Also, it is official, I won The Summer Box Office Challenge and so as my reward, I reveal the three movies that I am forcing Scott to watch. As always, we had a great time recording this show and we really hope you love it. If you do, please spread the word to other movie fans.
