Two movies titled New In Town enter, only one will leave (with that title) as Herman “OmegaPrime” Davis and Robert Rau watch a romantic comedy fit for the Hallmark Channel — and a standup special from John Mulaney too good for the Hallmark Channel — to determine which should be called New In Town.
Having once accidentally received this movie as a gift, Robert has been dying to have this on the show. And now that he’s subscribed to Hulu, his dreams have become reality. He finally gets to see Renee Zellweger battle the mighty Minnesotan winter and her affections for Harry Connick Jr. The trailer does everything to telegraph how this movie will go, but the sprinkles of comedy certainly help when swallowing this bitter pill.
The second movie is the DVD Robert really wanted, and eventually got from Amazon when his parents let him down. This is the second special from John Mulaney, and it features plenty of great bits Robert has recited to complete strangers. The problem is determining which one is the best — which Herman and Robert will do — and possibly replacing the title of the special.
This one won’t be a toughie, but is either movie good enough to call itself New In Town? Listen if you dare.
