Episode 3: Table 19

For this week's Viewing Party, Katie and Wesleigh went to see Anna Kendrick's new movie, Table 19! Despite having a roster full of wonderfully comedic actors, this film was panned by critics — it's Rotten Tomatoes score is, ironically, 19% — but we found it delightful and decidedly plaid (Don't know what a 'plaid movie' is? You're about to find out!). In this episode we chat about weddings, why so many actresses are asked to cry in movies, and how much we love Stephen Merchant in this film.
