SHIT, ACTUALLY The Definitive, 100% Objective Guide to Modern Cinema

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lindy West

Contemporary Culture • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

After defending THE FUGITIVE as the "only good movie," author/narrator/comic Lindy West deconstructs more than 20 fan-favorite films, rating them against FUGITIVE criteria. She lovingly eviscerates everyone's favorite rom-com, LOVE, ACTUALLY, to hilarious effect. It's her friendly voice and her surprising comparisons that make for laugh-out-loud moments. She is scathingly comical about casting Tim Allen to play Santa in THE SANTA CLAUSE. "Hearing him say 'Ho, ho, ho,' sucked my soul out of my mouth like a haunted cat," she says. Her salty language may offend, but her performance is top-notch. Her tone and attitude are brutal, honest, and outrageously funny. Her analyses of such gems as the Harry Potter movies, THE LION KING, FACE/OFF, FORREST GUMP, and more are a perfect fit for audio. S.J.H.
