You never heard the saying “Don’t rob a bank across the street from a diner with the best donuts in three counties?”
This episode marks our first true attempt at diversifying what we talk about (in terms of actual chosen topics, not the stuff we usually get sidetracked with).
This is the first in a series that we will be calling Bench Reacts – making titling episodes very confusing seeing as we’ve started this in the middle of the Lockdown Specials – where we’ll be checking out anything sports and pop-culture and giving the analysis, breakdown and ill-informed opinions that we would usually reserve for basketball.
To start the series off, our focus is on the 2013 action-comedy 2 Guns, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. This movie was chosen because it’s one of our host’s all-time favourites and a regular rewatch, and our other host was seeing it for the first time.
Listen in as we break down the movie and some trivia around it, before doling out some not-at-all-Oscar-style awards, decided on entirely through inexact science.
We really enjoyed recording this one, and we hope it makes for a good listen. If you have something that you think deserves it’s own Bench Reacts, please let us know!
