Paul and Erin review two movies featuring main characters with incomprehensible ways of talking. First: NELL, the 1994 drama starring Jodie Foster as a woman who has grown up in an isolated cabin in the North Carolina wilderness, speaking her own private language; then, POOTIE TANG, the 2001 blaxploitation spoof written and directed by Louis C.K., starring Lance Crouther as a singer, ladies' man, and crimefighter who is literally "too cool for words." Chicka chicka chickabee, or sine your pitty on the runny kine: which will prevail?
Plus: quick takes on MAN OF TAI CHI, ABOUT TIME, 12 YEARS A SLAVE, and A BAND CALLED DEATH.
