Oh hi Filmsack Men, Who shall we con today? The listeners? Little Old Ladies, Randy? Hmmm… .unsure if I meant Little Old Ladies THEN Randy or Randy likes to con little old ladies…. or perhaps Randy is just really into geriatrics.  Show note problems…am I right?

Well I hope you enjoyed that little distraction. Meanwhile, I swapped your Sacks of good intros with bad impressions of Nicholas Cage.  Good Luck, Randy.

That is one serious overbite your dog has.

Love this music.

Compulsive behavior.

The big pink pill helps with the spanish compulsion. now he counts in English.

Random phone guy.

A scam!

Feel horrible for the lady. Great job. You made me feel.

Is he a vampire? He sure don’t like that sun. But thank god they let the dog out.

They left the door open!

A long con. I don’t do the long con.

Yeah…we all saw the pink pills going down the sink.

No pink pills….man…that kicks in fast.

Doctor skipped town.

“You looking for something Sucker?”

Sandwich crumbs will make anyone nervous.

Outdoors, Dirt, bugs.

Onto the blue pills.

“The answering machine pickup” We don’t have that anymore…but we should really bring that back.

never trust a psychiatrist with a Magic Eye poster on the office wall.

Can you call my ex wife?

What is the psychiatrist wearing? and a pipe?

Smoking in a car with the windows up. That seems like torture.

“Mom said I got your elbows”

Outdoors is no good

That is the creepiest way to kiss your “just met” 14 year old daughter ever.

unm. unm. noise

Obsessed with his carpet. Maybe you should get rid of the carpet.

NY Super Fudge Chunk.

Don’t touch my shit kid!

Kid Rock to strip to.

That’s a lot of cigarette and tuna

Those shopping carts though!

Do all con men smoke? am I seeing a motif? or theme?

Discussion Prompt: If all con men in the world smoke. What other fictional worlds could we apply this logic to and how would that change the story.

Mine is What if Samuel L. Jackson’s “Hate this hacker crap character” was conning Newman and he doesn’t actually hate this hacker crap.

 

That guy that never tips. You can’t con him

Teaching your daughter to con.

So much smoking in this movie

It’s the odd couple of con movies.

Who needs TV when you can watch tuna and water in the fridge?

This is one freaking emotional movie.
