#589: The Royal Tenenbaums / Top 5 Non-Kids Movies You Should Show Your Kids

Back in 2001, Wes Anderson was known as the director of the modest indie hit RUSHMORE. Then came THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, with its family full of failed former prodigies and iconic soundtrack.

Adam and Josh, along with former co-host (and notable TENENBAUMS skeptic) Sam Van Hallgren, have a Sacred Cow review. Plus, a little ahead of Father’s Day, the Top 5 (Non-Kids) Films To Show Your Kids.
