TAATM #92: Lenny vs. Punchline

But seriously: Heather and Paul thank you guys for being such a fantastic audience as they discuss two movies set in the world of standup comedy. First: Lenny, Bob Fosse's stylized 1974 biopic starring Dustin Hoffman as the groundbreaking comic and free-speech martyr Lenny Bruce; then, Punchline, the 1988 drama starring Sally Field as a New Jersey housewife with dreams of becoming a standup comic and Tom Hanks as the troubled but talented performer who becomes her mentor. "Sick" comedy or cuddly comedy: which will prevail?

Plus: quick takes on Divided We Fall, In Darkness, Black Mirror, The Lego Movie, Would You Rather, and American Gigolo.
