Episode 80: Barbie (2023)

This week we leap with the excellent Margo Robbie to a more recent film – 2023’s adventure-comedy-fantasy-toy movie Barbie. Will three middle-aged white guys enjoy this film, or are we not the target audience? Who knows? 

Season 3, Episode 26

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Margot Robbie

From: About Time

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Glenn)

10 years is a long time in the film industry. After Glenn spends the whole episode gushing over how much he loves Rachel McAdams, he then leaps with Margot Robbie. We leap from one of her earliest roles to a film from last year – one of the biggest films in recent times, starring Robbie – who has become one of the biggest and best stars around. She may not get the oscar this time, but will no doubt pick up at least one or two in the years to come.

 

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Michael Cera

To: Frequency

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Glenn)

For Glenn’s third leap – and the final leap of the season – we leap with Michael Cera who played a relatively small role in Barbie, to an even smaller role, one of his earliest films, Frequency. Cera has been in more popular films, but Glenn picks random films sometimes…
