Bob and Brad check out director Ron Howard's 2005 effort Cinderella Man. They discuss how criminally underrated it's turned out to be since its release, and focus on the performance of the two leads, Russell Crowe and Renee Zellweger. Also, they dedicate a whole segment to everyone's favorite character actor, Paul Giamatti.
Meanwhile, they open the screw-top plastic cap on a 1.75-liter bottle of Ancient Ancient Age 10-Star. This stuff is dirt cheap but famous among bourbon drinkers for transcending its bottom-shelf trappings. Will the guys enjoy it more than current bottom-shelf champ Heaven Hill Green Label?
After the whiskey review, Bob makes a case for why Ron Howard should be taken more seriously as a director and the guys offer their final verdict.
