"Are you Shining with a real Barbie?"

The Film Board Gathers! The gang of thugs is here to take on a movie currently in theaters and this month… let’s call it counter programming. The crew is going to try and prove that we, too, are Kenough as we talk about Greta Gerwig’s MUCH pinker sequel to Little Women: It’s Barbie.

It’s a film dense with jokes and ideology, and of course the baggage of opening Oppenheimer-adjacent. It’s certainly the biggest thing on big screens right now and we take it as our solemn duty to determine if it plays for the middle-aged guy crowd. If those guys are like Steve Sarmento, Justin Jaeger, Tommy Metz and Pete Wright, they’re in pretty good hands.
