I couldn’t get to the Gifted screening this week, despite my admittedly-embarrassing love for Chris Evans. Sorry, but I’m a busy Mom and sometimes sh*t happens, which is why I’m grateful for my movie-buddy Rebekah Black.

PODCAST: Talking to Adam Pally from “Dirty Grandpa”

Adam Pally (Happy Endings, The Mindy Project) was in town today and I was lucky enough to hang out with him. Pally was here to promote his new movie Dirty Grandpa with Robert De Niro and Zac Efron, but he discussed everything under the sun with us, from parenting to bowel movements. Adam Pally seriously described his poop to us, which made me love him even more. Thanks to Matt Mungle for joining me in the interview and asking all of the good questions.
