The gang is down a member this week in Zac, as Jon, Lauren and Ben flashback to 1998’s Pleasantville! The film held up for this crew, but there are some things to get into along the way. Like, where are all the POC’s and what happened to Reese Witherspoon halfway through the movie? Still, new viewers and old still enjoyed this one and the crew had a nice discussion about everything that does, and doesn’t, work in the film.
