#572: May Marathon #1 - A New Leaf / Top 5 Comedies About the Rich

After carbo-loading for weeks and buying a pair of matching running shorts, Adam and Josh set off on the latest Filmspotting Marathon: a four-part look at the work of comedy legend Elaine May – a director unfortunately best known for one of the biggest box office failures of the 1980s: "Ishtar." This week, a review of May's 1971 debut A NEW LEAF starring May and Walter Matthau. Plus, the Top 5 Comedies About the Rich.
