Here at the Glenn Beck Program, we were lucky enough to have two weeks off over the holiday so we could spend time with our families. Well, not quite “off”, as most of the web staff worked into the wee hours of the night on the new GlennBeck.com (We hope you like it!). Nevertheless, some of us were able to spend time with our families, and Stu and Pat talked on radio this morning about some of the “highlights” of their holiday vacation.
Stu decided to stay pretty local, as he drove with his wife up to Connecticut for the holidays. But anyone who was watching the news knows travelling proved a little difficult in the northeast. Stu joked, “There was a minor snow event occurring on that day which turned my three hour drive into a seven-plus hour drive in which I was driving 15 miles an hour down the Jersey turnpike while Chris Christie was apparently living is up in Disney World.”
Pat and Stu both managed to make it out to the movies, and neither had nice things to say. Stu said, “I did, however, travel to the movie theater a couple of times. And I notice today there's a big story about how the grosses, the box office grosses are down year to year, which is apparently pretty rare because they constantly are jacking up prices and adding theatres. And I'm going to go ahead on a limb and say it was because the movies sucked.”
The reviews came in tough from the duo. On Little Fockers, Stu said, “If I could use Glenn's TV cliches: Here's what I know tonight: Fockers sounds like a swear word. That’s not a plot.” Stu also saw the new film How Do You Know? “Wow, was this thing terrible."
Pat had a little better luck, saying that he saw two movies, the new Narnia and Gulliver’s Travels. “I saw Narnia, which I liked a lot. And I think the whole family pretty much liked that. And then the other one I saw was the Jack Black Gulliver's Travels thing. All that is holy, stop with the Jack Black movies. I get that, too, okay? I get the moronic fart jokes. I've had enough!”
So what did YOU do over the holidays? Did you see any movies? Did you love Little Fockers and Gulliver’s Travels? Let us know in the comments below.
