We continue our long dreadful march to Christmas with another spirited pick-me-up of a family film in ABOUT SCHMIDT. This Alexander Payne flick stars Jack Nicholson as a man traveling across the country to stop his daughter's wedding to a "nincompoop" who bears a striking resemblance to one of our beloved co-hosts. This was pointed out by our spirited and charming guest TIM COSTA of FIRST TIME WATCHERS who finds himself at a loss on what to do when confronted with a nude Kathy Bates in a hot tub. As usual, your hosts Dave and Mike know exactly what to do and you will too once you listen to the latest episode of THE GRAND GESTURE!
