The boys gather 'round to check out one of the more revered films of the genre, Bryan Singer's X-Men follow-up, X2: X-Men United. The allegories abound, and the plot is weighty. Allen, Steven, and Gerald forgo commentary due only to time restraints, and bite off as much of the film as they can chew. The returning cast with the addition of the villainous Brian Cox shine in a much better plot and a more cohesive script.
Also this week, Allen forces Steven and Gerald to play a game as stupid in premise as imaginable, for the prize of immunity against any vetoes from Allen when it comes to their birthday week movie selections. The future of the genre is discussed almost as much as UPN is.
