Breakfast All Day

Review: Mank Walks the Line Between Stunt and Masterpiece | Time

The whole gang got back together — all too briefly — to talk about “Mank” on this week’s episode of Breakfast All Day. We couldn’t possibly have a discussion of this film without our old friend and co-host Ben Mankiewicz, grandson of “Citizen Kane” screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz, who’s the subject of David Fincher’s lush homage to classic Hollywood. Christy, Alonso and Matt also review the body-swap horror-comedy “Freaky”; “Chick Fight,” which might be the year’s worst film; and “Dating Amber,” a sly charmer of an Irish comedy. In news, we finally have a president — hooray! — which leads to a lengthy discussion of Four Seasons Total Landscaping, as well as Alex Trebek‘s death, what we’re not doing for Thanksgiving and whether we’ll ever see “Wonder Woman 1984” on the big screen. And over at our Patreon, we recap the latest episode of “The Mandalorian” and the finale of “Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult.” Hope you’re all staying safe, and thanks as always for spending some of your time with us.
