GLENN: It is Valentine's Day, which is a day I absolutely hate. I hate. I hate this day, and I hate New Year's Eve. There's too much pressure on these days
STU: Me too.
GLENN: Too much pressure.
GLENN: Yes. Yes.
STU: Just a gift. You have to find the right perfect gift, or?
GLENN: Yeah. Yes. It's -- first of all, it's a made-up holiday.
STU: Yeah. Look, it's a nice excuse to have a nice night with your wife or your girlfriend. You know, you have -- maybe you give a little present. Whatever. But it's a B-list holiday. Let's be honest about it. It's a B-list holiday. You know, you can have a nice evening. Which is, you know, it's a nice maybe excuse for date night. But really, it's -- it's a B-list holiday.
GLENN: And if it was just an excuse for a great date night -- like Tania and I, we went on a date last night for Valentine's Day. We went and we watched -- what's the M. Night --
STU: To Split? You went to see Split on Valentine's Day?
PAT: On Valentine's Day.
GLENN: That was her choice.
STU: I've heard it was really good, by the way.
GLENN: I was like, "Manchester By The Sea. How about the Lion?" She was like, "No, I want to go to see Split."
STU: That's awesome.
JEFFY: Nice! That is awesome.
STU: That shows you have a good relationship.
GLENN: I know.
PAT: Was it good?
GLENN: It was really good. Except, M., stop.
JEFFY: Oh, boy.
GLENN: I call him M.
GLENN: We're that close.
STU: Don't give anything away because I know obviously --
PAT: There is a twist.
GLENN: Stop. Stop. Stop.
JEFFY: It's been over 8,000 years.
GLENN: Stop, stop. Stop it.
PAT: I knew it! I knew it. And you mocked me for saying there would be a twist. And sure, there's a twist.
JEFFY: Because he's said he's learned his lesson. Right?
PAT: I thought so, yeah.
GLENN: Now, he did learn his lesson, it's not -- I had to go and look it up. I'm not going to spoil anything.
PAT: Yeah, please don't.
GLENN: I just Googled, "What the hell does the ending of this movie mean?"
And looked it up. And I'm like, "Okay. All right. I'm okay with it." But Tania and I just looked at each other and we were like, "What?"
PAT: That's weird. If you have to look up the ending, that's not a good sign.
STU: But I also like that.
GLENN: No, but you'll understand it. I don't want to blow it.
STU: I'm dying to see that, but I like that in movies.
GLENN: You will be satisfied. And then it's like -- he goes in for the kill, and you're like, "Stop it. Stop it."
PAT: He always does. He can't -- he can't help himself.
He scored big with the first movie, and he can't help himself now because he's too cool.
STU: This movie, by the way, came out on January 20th. It has not been out for two full weeks yet. $9 million budget. $119 million domestic gross already.
GLENN: You know who did it? Jason Blum.
STU: Oh, yeah, yeah. It is.
STU: Which is -- I mean, that's -- but, I mean, that's -- this is going to be one of the most successful movies of the year.
GLENN: This, you guys will not believe the acting skill of -- I don't even know the guy's name.
JEFFY: Yeah, he had to pull off at least three or four characters. Because he was 20 or something like that.
GLENN: I think 24 characters. But I think he plays eight.
JEFFY: Okay. That's still a lot.
GLENN: Yeah. And he is good.
STU: Sorry, it's been out three weeks, not two.
GLENN: What is his name? Because he played Xavier, right? In -- didn't he play the Jean-Luc Picard role, the Patrick Stewart role in X-Men?
PAT: Yes, same guy. Is it James McAvoy? Is that his name?
GLENN: I guess.
STU: All I know is that -- we showed the preview on Pat and Stu before it came out.
PAT: Yeah. James McAvoy.
STU: And we were just talking about, either this guy is Oscar worthy and can make this movie good.
JEFFY: Right. Or bad.
STU: Or if he's not an A-plus, the movie is going to be terrible.
GLENN: He's an A-plus. And you should have known that he was an A-plus. I mean, the guy can't walk. I mean, you saw him in X-Men. He can't walk.
PAT: And then he pretends he can in Split.
GLENN: Yeah, in Split, he's walking around. I don't know if it's CGI or what it was. But that's an A-plus performance. This guy is remarkable. Truly remarkable.
STU: Wow. The tenth biggest opening of all time in January.
PAT: What? Really?
PAT: Jeez. How about that?
GLENN: Good for him. I'm happy for him.
STU: That's adjusted. Opening weekends, all time in January, the fifth biggest. And it's the biggest movie since -- or biggest of the similar. Like they compared it to a lot of other horror movies that would potentially be in the drama.
GLENN: It's not really a horror movie.
STU: Yeah, suspence?
GLENN: I will tell you, it's suspense. It was very Hitchcock. Very, very Hitchcock.
PAT: Well, that's what you would expect from Shyamalan.
STU: People were obviously -- he had his issues with a couple of movies there. But the last two have been really successful. The Visit was the last one last year.
GLENN: I didn't see it.
STU: I think Pat saw it. But it made a lot of noise as well. So that's two in a row. Big numbers.
PAT: So what about -- so you guys didn't see 50 Shades Darker on Valentines night?
GLENN: No. And neither did anyone else.
STU: Oh, my God.
PAT: Well, it was number two last weekend. The Lego Batman Movie beat it.
GLENN: I saw that.
PAT: But you would expect that.
GLENN: I saw that with the kids.
PAT: You did? Is it good?
GLENN: Lego Batman.
STU: Good? As good as Lego movie?
GLENN: No. Uh-uh. But good. Good. Just not as good. I mean, the Lego movie was in a league of its own. And the problem with this one is the Batman character is -- he just gets a little old after a while. It's like, "Okay. Okay. I got it. I got it."
STU: By the way, I was watching a show last week -- a tremendous program on USA, Suits, which I freaking love. I actually care about the characters on that show more than certainly everybody in this room and most people I know, just so you're aware.
PAT: But they did a preview. An extended preview of 50 Shades Darker or whatever. It looked like a parody.
PAT: It looked so bad.
STU: It looked so horrible.
PAT: It was so bad.
STU: I couldn't believe -- the people in the movie -- I don't understand how they're in this sexy movie, first of all. It makes no sense. Neither one of them, to be honest.
PAT: Right! Thank you!
STU: And second of all, the acting and the lines were so horrible in this extended preview. I can't imagine that -- I mean, they might just pull the plug after two of them.
PAT: And weirdly, weirdly, people are hurting themselves trying to recreate the scenes in the movie apparently, going to emergency rooms with these erotic accidents.
GLENN: Erotic accidents.
STU: That's a great name for a band.
GLENN: It is The Erotic Accidents. This weekend.
STU: So we got there from you talking about Valentine's Day.
STU: You already did the Valentine's Day thing yesterday?
GLENN: Yeah, so I did that yesterday. Well, I haven't given her her gift. And I want to -- I mean, I don't have to. I want to give it to her on the air. Because I know exactly what she's going to say off the air. I know exactly what she's going to say.
GLENN: She may say it on the air. But I just need some backup.
STU: So you're trying to guilt her into receiving the gift positively?
PAT: Which will not stop her from negatively receiving it later on.
GLENN: I know.
STU: It probably makes it worse later on. Right? Because she's like, why did you put me on the air for that?
PAT: Right. You may not be inoculating yourself. You may be making it worse. I don't know.
GLENN: I know.
