In Episode 57 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Robert Yaniz Jr. sifts through mountains of Judd Apatow-produced films to find the very best of the bunch in a new edition of Let’s Talk About SIX. From The 40-Year-Old Virgin to Trainwreck, Apatow has directed some of the best comedies of the 2000s, but his producing credits reach even deeper than his directorial efforts. His latest, The Big Sick, is becoming one of the most talked-about films of the year, but does the Michael Showalter film, starring Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter and Ray Romano really live up to all the hype preceding its wide release? Let’s take a closer look at this comedy/drama and break it down for ourselves.
We’re excited to hear your feedback as the show continues to evolve. As usual, the podcast does feature explicit language and, as such, is best considered NSFW.
