Title Card: Vloggin' with Blogginz…& Sophs!

Liss: Are you ready for some sweet Mike Isabella action on Top Chef?

KBlogz: Mike Isaballa is a lot like this character in the film Good Luck Chuck

[Liss bursts out laughing]

KBlogz: —he was the friend—

Liss: Yeah…?

KBlogz: —and he's all like [flaps arms around and puts on caveman voice] "Gettin' pussy! Yeeeaaaarrrggghhh!"

Liss: Oh my god. Was that the worst movie ever?

KBlogz: It got 5% on RottenTomatoes.com.

Liss: [laughing] Is that accurate?

KBlogz: Yeah!

Liss: Oh my god.

KBlogz: Yeah, it's true. It got 5%.

Liss: I mean, I know, like, we watched a lot of bad movies together, deliberately, because we like watching bad movies, like…Blart…and—

KBlogz: Yeah, but Blart wasn't offensive like this one.

Liss: Well—

KBlogz: It was kind of, but—

Liss: —it was kind of offensive.

KBlogz: It didn't make me sick.

Liss: Remember all the "Ha ha, fat people are funny" stuff?

KBlogz: Yeah, "Oh, fat people are funny" and then Good Luck Chuck is like [flaps arms around and puts on dudebro caveman voice] "Fucking dumb sluts! Yeeeaaaarrrggghhh!"

Liss: [laughing] I know! That was—

KBlogz: [waves arms around wildly while Liss laughs] He's like leaping around; he's like doing all this Dane Cook impersonation.

Liss: It was actually— Yeah, Dane Cook was doing a Dane Cook impersonation?

KBlogz: Well, his friend [in the movie] was like Dane Cook's stand-up—

Liss: YES.

KBlogz: —he was like moving his arms around [flaps arms around and puts on caveman voice] and going, "Pussy!"

Liss: Yeah, I'm surprised he didn't do a t-rex impersonation, you know how—

KBlogz: [impersonating Dane Cook's t-rex impersonation] Rrrrahhh!

[Liss bursts out laughing]

Liss: Um— Can you fix those blinds behind you? Like, that Sophie messed up again? [KBlogz fixes blinds, which he's done like 90 times before.] Thanks, it was irritating me.

KBlogz: You're welcome.

Liss: Um—

[KBlogz puts hand under chin; pulls cute face; Liss laughs]

Liss: You're very helpful. Um, what was I gonna say about Good Luck Chuck? That was actually offensive on every level.

KBlogz: Yeah.

Liss: Like, it wasn't funny, it was—there was gratuitous nudity constantly… [Sophie jumps up by where the blinds had been messed up.] Look, right back to fucking with the blinds.

KBlogz: [faux angry] Goddammit.

Liss: Lucky she's cute, I tell ya.

KBlogz: I know. [melodramatically rolls eyes and shakes head]

Liss: But for that she's getting out of the shot. [Zooms in on KBlogz, who chuckles.] It was completely absurd, and it made no sense—

KBlogz: Very poorly written.

Liss: —it was misogynist, homophobic, transphobic, racist—

KBlogz: Anti-Wiccan.

Liss: —anti-Wiccan, probably anti-penguin.

KBlogz: Probably.

Liss: Um, it had a stoner for laughs, which is just—

KBlogz: Yeah.

Liss: —so tired.

KBlogz: Anti-stoner, right.

Liss: [laughs] And unoriginal and lazy.

KBlogz: Yeah, plus that.

Liss: Derivative, um—

KBlogz: Yeah, it had a "Dane Cook going down on a plush penguin" scene at the end.

Liss: That was tragic!

KBlogz: Ya ever wanna see Dane Cook make love to a plush penguin? Watch Good Luck Chuck! It's a real movie.

Liss: [pans over to Sophie, who had pushed her head through the blinds] Look at this shit over here. Look.

KBlogz: [faux angry] Goddammit!

Liss: [laughing as Sophie pulls her head out and looks at them, then licks her back] Look at the innocent look!

KBlogz: [faux angry] Goddammit!

Liss: "Oh don't mind me! I'm just cleaning myself! I'm not fucking up the blinds!"

KBlogz: Look at her—

Liss: Good Luck Sophie.

[Liss and KBlogz pretend to be exasperated, then Liss laughs as Sophie sticks her head back out of the blinds.]

Liss: What could be going on out there? Look at her! [KBlogz looks and laughs.] Just watching the neighborhood!

KBlogz: Bobby! Bobby!

Liss: What else? It was millions of dollars that could have been spent feeding people.

KBlogz: Mm-hmm.

Liss: Or—

KBlogz: Or making just a better movie.

Liss: Yes! [They both laugh.] That's also, like, an option. Oh my god, um—

KBlogz: It could have gone towards, like, cool sweaters for us.

Liss: Yes. It could have gone to an actual, real penguin habitat.

KBlogz: It could have gone towards getting us a Dodge Viper—

Liss: Mm-hmm.

KBlogz: —with nitrous.

Liss: Yeah.

KBlogz: For our blogging.

Liss: And also our surp—supor—ssss— Let's try that again. Also for our superheroing that we do on the weekends.

KBlogz: Yep.

Liss: 'Cuz, like, um, my Ford Fusion ain't that cool.

KBlogz: Not at all.

Liss: Your Scion's a little cooler.

KBlogz: It's a little bit cooler.

[Sophie goes crashing through the blinds. They laugh.]
