Funny Face / Avengers: Infinity War
You voted for it. So now you get to hear us complain about it. We think it's only fair.
Hello and welcome again to Macintosh and Maud Haven’t Seen What?! This week, we try to decide what’s worse - how bad this movie is, or how bad Audrey Hepburn sings in it. Fred Astaire does his best to entertain, but nothing in the known universe can save a musical from a bad script, bad songs and bad awkward acting. You voted for it, and now you get to hear us complain about it. Enjoy our review of 1957’s Funny Face!
After the break we very reluctantly give a spoiler-free review of the seriously big deal Avengers: Infinity War. Overall, it's got heart and humor, and we genuinely enjoyed it. And that's all we're gonna say for now, though there could be a spoilercast soon. We'll let you know.
