War Machine vs. War Horse: Hello, My Name is Doris (Something's Gotta Give vs. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button)

On this episode we try to get the timing right in a discussion with Margo from the podcast Book Vs. Movie as we waste our youth on a double feature of Nancy Meyer’s SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE vs. David Fincher’s THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON.
