Reese, Owen along with JACK, Paul Rudd, Tony Shalhoub. "How Do You Know" Looks like nobody knew for this one. James had a very strong start but the last two movies were doozies.

Ken with writing your blogs, and scheduling and research for these podcasts- do you listen / recommend any more current podcasts? My recent favorite is A Typical Disgusting Display - "a podcast for writers, by writers ... who hate writing." The weekly "Johnny jokes" is a must. A lot of the other podcasts I started on a few years ago, I got bored with. (No offense, I even took a time out from you last year but drifted back this spring. It's like Netflix and other streamers: timeouts are needed and real.)

Thanks. Looking forward to next week. I thought Dan Le Batard had a good comment on the Fox deal with Tom Brady: "They gave $375 million to somebody who has never said anything interesting".
