The Plotaholics’ are going strong this week as we continue to explore the films that came out in 2022. This week’s episode is a CRIMINALLY UNDER THE RADAR BANGER!
This week we’re talking about the Nicholas Cage film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. This film, costarring Padro Pascal, shows a fictionalized (we hope not) version of Nicholas Cage living in Hollywood. His career and relationship with his daughter are following the path of his marriage…failing when he’s offered $1 million dollars to appear at the birthday party of eccentric billionaire manchild Javi (Pascal). What Nicholas (and Nicky) don’t realize is that the CIA is crashing the party.
Featuring Tiffany Haddish, and Ike Barrinholtz in supporting roles, this hilarious meta-action comedy will leave you laughing, and leaving you hoping that the actors’ on-screen personas are actually their real-life ones.
SPOILER ALERT! If you have not watched this film yet you can stream it on Starz. Then come on back here and have a listen!
