Jennifer Mondfrans's Pick

Kristen Wiig - Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar

Highlight: Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo co-wrote and star in “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar,” portraying lifelong friends on a hilarious adventure away from their small Midwestern town. The film’s offbeat humor and absurd situations, balanced by Barb and Star’s endearing optimism, make for a delightfully bonkers ride.

Heather Fowler's Pick

Reese Witherspoon - Freeway

Stripping away the glamour of her later roles, Witherspoon delivers a captivating performance filled with empathy and unexpected humor as she navigates the gritty underworld with agency and determination.

From her start at Groundlings to her acclaimed tenure on “Saturday Night Live,” Rudolph’s comedic prowess has earned her multiple Emmy awards. Her versatility extends to animated films and TV, including standout roles in “Bridesmaids” and “Big Mouth.” In “Loot,” Rudolph shines as Molly Novak, a recently divorced billionaire navigating life’s absurdities, offering a comedic take on self-discovery and privilege.

Marie Wetmore's Pick:

Catherine O’Hara - Schitt’s Creek

Highlight: Catherine O’Hara, a Canadian actress, found her comedic inspiration through her upbringing in a humorous family and her friendship with Gilda Radner. Known for her iconic roles in films like “Beetlejuice” and “Home Alone.” Her standout performance as Moira Rose in “Schitt’s Creek” earned her critical acclaim, showcasing her intelligence and versatility through the character’s eccentricities and memorable one-liners, making her an unforgettable comedic force in television history.

Hot Snack for the Viewing Session:

Are you hungry? This episode, we feature a movie-watching hot snack offered by Kiki Watkins!

Stuffed Bell Peppers


Bell Peppers

Rice or Quinoa

Ground Beef/Turkey/Sasuage

Worcester Sauce

Salt/Pepper/Garlic Powder/Onion Powder to taste

Tomato Sauce

Cherry Tomatoes

Step 1: Prepare the Rice and Beef

Cook rice or quinoa until tender. If using quinoa, you have to rinse it in a strainer before cooking. Meanwhile, cook ground beef, turkey, sausage, or other selected ground meat in a skillet until browned and crumbly.

Step 2: Stuff the Peppers

Hollow the bell peppers by cutting off the tops and scooping out the seeds and membranes. Arrange the peppers in a single layer in a baking dish. Stuff the peppers with a prepared filling of rice or quinoa, ground beef, turkey, or Italian sausage, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. I also sliced cherry tomatoes and added them in as well. Top each filled pepper with a mixture of tomato sauce and Italian seasoning.

Step 3: Bake

Bake until the peppers are tender, usually 15-20 minutes. Some will suggest you air fry or prebake your peppers, but they get too soft that way in my humble opinion.
