Adam opens the show discussing Morgan Spurlock’s latest documentary: Pom Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Made. The movie is all about advertising and product placement, and Adam agrees that it’s distracting when you see a movie with a fake cereal or university name. The guys also talk about other documentaries that made them laugh, including Overnight and The Kid Stays in the Picture.
Adam talks to Morgan a bit more about his career, and the past 7 years since Super Size Me was released. Morgan discusses the inspiration for the doc, and the fast-tracked way in which they got the film to Sundance. They then jump back even earlier in Morgan’s career, and talk about working for free and pitching your ass off all for the small chance that you might get your break.
Adam and Morgan then discuss another project that Morgan is working on with Will Arnett and Jason Bateman about Male Grooming. The guys also talk about some of their favorite films, and go on a side jag about boring nature documentaries. The show wraps up with Adam and Morgan jumping onto the phone lines. They take calls about where Osama Bin Laden may be, when advertising crosses the line, and why certain companies resisted being in Morgan’s doc.
Check out Morgan’s new documentary, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, in theaters this Friday. Or visit www.MorganSpurlock.com for more info on today’s guest.
