Jeff and Eric have great news to report in this episode of “Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider”: After several weeks of so-so releases, there’s finally a truly great film. It’s called “Jonah Hex.” No, just kidding, “Jonah Hex” is lousy. But “Toy Story 3” is brilliant! They also answer the QOTW and pose a new one — what’s your favorite immature comedy? — and talk to Jeff’s dad for Fathers Day. Plus there’s Fixer & Defender, Pitch Me, and assorted merriment.

It’s 1984 all over again this week on “Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider.” They agree on the two big releases this week. “The Karate Kid” is worth the time, even though it runs a little long. “The A-Team” on the other hand, is a little messy and doesn’t do anything particularly well. Pitch Me unites Sylvester Stallone and Tim Allen in “Witch Doctor?” Plus Fixer & Defender is back with “Star Trek III: The
Search For Spock.” We answer the QOTW (Question of the Week) and give you a new one … What is the best Part 3 in movie history? Email answers to email@example.com.
“Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider” hits the double digits this week — show number 10! In celebration, Eric and Jeff agree that “Get Him to the Greek” is the best offering of new films this week, and that “Killers” should be left dead on the floor. They haven’t seen “Marmaduke,” but come on. Eric loves the creepy and insane “Splice,” while Jeff adamantly does not; there is debate. Also, Robin Williams’ career is revived in “Pitch Me,” and listeners are given a new assignment in Question of the Week: tell us your favorite remakes. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In a shocking turn of events, Jeff actually succeeded in getting a guest for “Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider”! It was John Solomon, a “Saturday Night Live” writer, and co-writer of the “MacGruber” movie, which Jeff and Eric both liked a lot, and not just because they were having John Solomon on the show. He talked about writing for “SNL,” and about the disappointing “MacGruber” box office. He also helped Jeff and Eric with “Pitch Me,” coming up with a fantastic Western romance. Oh, and “Sex and the City 2” isn’t very good, and “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” is so-so, the end. E-mail us at email@example.com.
Welcome to the season finale of Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider. In this week’s show the two agree that “MacGruber” is not, in fact, the waste of time you think it is. It’s pretty dang funny. They disagree on “Shrek Forever After” or “Shrek The Final Chapter” or whatever it’s called and give quick reviews for “The Square,” “Mother and Child” and “The Human Centipede. The two attempt to fix last week’s debacle of “Pitch Me” with help from the viewers and in a season finale twist no one say coming, the show has a mortal enemy. Stay tuned for next week as Season Two begins at the exact same time, and the exact same place. Email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s a sad day for Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider, on account of all the movies this week are lousy. “Robin Hood”: long and slow. “Letters to Juliet”: pretty generic rom-com. “Just Wright”: just wrong. Still, Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider managed to disagree on the extent to which each of the movies is bad. Then they talked about “The Apple,” a futuristic musical from 1980; played a depressing round of Pitch Me involving Carrot Top and Ben Affleck; and read some viewer mail. Speaking of which, send them some e-mails at email@example.com!
It’s officially summertime. Trust us, we’re movie critics. This week on Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider we talk about the first big summer blockbuster, “Iron Man 2” starring Robert Downey Jr. and a slew of other famous faces. We both agree you’ll have a good time, but won’t be blown away. Bayer tells everyone, including Snider, to go see Oscar winner “The Secret in Their Eyes,” and both critics understand babies are cute, but the movie “Babies” grows tiresome. Our first guest joins Movie B.S. and it’s Momma Snider! Plus, a summer movie preview, a rousing game of “Fixer and Defender,” and we dive into the B.S. mail bag for the first time. Email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In a turn of events no one could have foreseen, the remake of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” is terrible! So say Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider both in this episode of Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider. And while neither of them saw “Furry Vengeance,” they’re pretty sure it’s terrible, too, and Eric offers some tips on how to tell the two movies apart. There’s also some talk of the Tribeca Film Festival, of Jeff’s bicycling and volleyballing prowess, and a Pitch Me movie idea involving Judi Dench and time travel.
Jeff Bayer was in Hawaii, so Eric D. Snider’s pal Andy Blubaugh, a Portland filmmaker, fills in for this week’s show. Andy even did his homework by seeing the J-Lo movie “The Back-Up Plan” with Eric, a mistake he won’t repeat any time soon. Eric’s review of “The Losers” is also a downer. Andy’s own film, “The Adults in the Room,” is also discussed, and it is agreed (by Eric, anyway) that Eric plays the most important role in the film.
Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider both agree “Kick-Ass” is a good old violent time in the third episode of “Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider.” “Death at a Funeral” isn’t a big winner, and Snider compares it to the original British version. Snider may just have a chance to beat Bayer in Fixer & Defender as Bayer stumbles through “Star Wars — Episode II: Attack of the Clones.” Most importantly, in Pitch Me the critics come up with a Christopher Walken/Sam Elliott movie that can’t be missed.
“Date Night” gets approval from both Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider in this, the second episode of “Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider.” Somewhat less approved in “The Runaways.” Eric liked “City Island,” which Jeff didn’t see. Jeff and Eric also make fun of the insane things that happen in Tyler Perry’s latest movie, play a round of Fixer and Defender with Kevin Smith’s “Cop Out,” and share weird memories of “Mary Poppins.”
In their premiere episode, Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider rip on “Clash of the Titans” (especially its cheap 3-D) and Miley Cyrus’ “The Last Song.” They also discuss 1983’s “Hercules” (starring Lou Ferrigno) and try to make up a Samuel L. Jackson/Michelle Pfeiffer movie on the spot. And for some reason Jeff says “all the sudden” instead of “all of a sudden.”
