  • Episode 72: ‘The Help,’ ‘Final Destination 5,’ ’30 Minutes or Less,’ ‘The Guard,’ ‘The Future’ Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider have a lot of movies to talk about this week, so naturally they spend several minutes talking about unrelated tangents.

Jeff reports that “A Better ...

  • Episode 66: ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon,’ ‘Larry Crowne,’ ‘Monte Carlo,’ ‘Page One’ For the Fourth of July, Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider are celebrating freedom from great movies. “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Larry Crowne” are both lousy, and “Monte Carlo” is only so-so.

  • Episode 59: ‘Bridesmaids,’ ‘Priest,’ ‘The Beaver,’ ‘Everything Must Go’ This week on Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider: “Bridesmaids” is quite funny! And raunchy, and has ladies instead of men! “Priest,” which wasn’t screened before it opened, is mediocre at best. “The Beaver” has Mel Gibson talking with a hand puppet. “Everything Must Go” has Will Ferrell drinking beer and sitting on the lawn. ...
  • Episode 58: ‘Thor,’ ‘Jumping the Broom,’ ‘Something Borrowed,’ Summer Box Office Challenge This week on Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider, ’tis the season for summer movies.

  • Episode 41: ‘Season of the Witch,’ ‘Country Strong,’ ‘Casino Jack,’ ‘Forks Over Knives,’ ‘Hood to Coast’ interview Bayer and Snider ring in the new year in the traditional fashion, i.e., with a couple of movies that aren’t very good. “Season of the Witch” is dumb but fun; “Country Strong” is dumb and not fun.

  • Episode 35: ‘Tangled,’ ‘Love and Other Drugs,’ ‘Faster,’ Pitch Me It’s the post-Thanksgiving episode of Movie B.S., and Bayer and Snider are bloated. Which is inexcusable, since they taped the show on Wednesday. Snider is in the studio with a cold; Bayer is literally phoning it in.
