Adam opens the show to a wicked “everyday was independence day” intro from Dawson and Lynch, Adam welcomes BB and Gina to the show and BB has an Alonzo Bodden #TopDrop and Adam brings up his feelings about filmic themes and how something like a movie about Benghazi would of course be met with a tepid reaction due to the political left.
BB has his own point about a documentary made by the son of the late great Nora Ephron and he dares critics not to give that movie a positive review in contrast to what Adam was saying.
Adam says it’s pretty simple and critics happen to left leaning types of people, it’s really easy math and he says a movie about tortured prisoners in Abu Ghraib would get a higher score than ‘American Sniper’ and he uses the actual scores to prove his point to a slight suspect BB.
Adam says it’s not even a judgement, more of an observation about behaviors.
Adam jokes with BB about prepping for the game before he showed up, very funny riff about Adam’s lack of preparation for all thins.
Adam sings the praises of Pixar movies and he comments on the low score of ‘Cars’ in comparison to the other movies made by the studio, he says he’s figured out that it’s because critics aren’t into cars or mechanics.
Adam says that ‘Cars’ is every bit as great as the rest of the Pixar movies, BB disagrees, what!?
Adam says this theory is that ‘Cars’ is only slightly worse than the rest of the pack of Pixar movies, they should get 100% and this should get 90%, Adam says this story is about a successful person and not about someone who is a victim or trying to find a parent or something lost.
Adam says he was surprised by the 25% drop for ‘Cars’ and Gina brings up all of the Albert Brooks movies that just got flooded onto Netflix.
Adam is talking about having some live Maine Lobster shipped to his house, he recreated a scene out of the movie ‘Annie Hall’ and Adam says he would never do this, order them, he says don’t do any favors for him, Lynette offered to have them taken to the butcher to be chopped up and prepared.
Adam says you can’t sleep on lobsters, you either got to cook them or find a live manatee next door that is hungry, Adam got the lobsters from Rob and he says he had to cook them one at a time.
Adam describes Sonny’s reactions and Adam says he squandered a window, the lobsters start to wake up and acclimate and move around, stretching, you need to get them from container to pot right away.
Adam says Natalia of course wanted to throw it in the pot and kill it, Sonny didn’t want anything to do with it, Adam says his kids are getting on to ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ he wanted to try ‘This is Spinal Tap!’ but instead decided upon ‘Defending Your Life’ and Adam is now quoting the movie along with BB.
Gina watched it too, it’s one of her favorite movies and Sonny found it on Netflix, within days after it was added to the service.
Adam is going over some of his favorite jokes, everyone else is peppering in more jokes, they’re all throwing out great jokes from the picture. Gina and Adam disagree on a joke from the movie, they both heard different words.

Gina has another challenge question, can oil filters last for 10,000 miles?
Adam talks about the magnets that now are added to filters, Gina corrects the joke from the movie and it’s ‘The Inner Circle of Thought’ and Adam says if they were at lunch he would have never corrected her but he released listeners would be paying attention to her mistake and want him to correct her.
Q and Ace
1st Caller Tom, he brings up Adam’s “Don’t Do Your Best, Do My Best” slogan and asks for a free shirt or hat in exchange for a copy of ‘Sex Boat’ and Adam jokes about the movie using “top, bottom and missionary critics” and Adam realizes Matt’s never heard of ‘Sex Boat’ to which he replies with the movie ‘Boat Trip.’
Adam is now talking about ‘Boat Trip’ and he marvels that the film was made in the modern era, 2002.
Adam goes off on the movie and then moves onto how kids won’t have their first porn movie in the future, BB isn’t sure if they still make feature length porn and Gary gets on mic with a simple and hilarious “yes.”
Adam talks about the bygone era of porn and Gary is now talking about the market for HD films and content, leading to new movies and high end productions which is alive and well.
Adam is back to the caller and he asks if it’s a “box set” and Adam tells him he likes Sex Boat but it’s not worth that, Tom agrees.
Adam is joking about Gina muffing a line from ‘Sex Boat’ and correcting her on that, BB jumps in and adds to the comedy, Adam is now riffing about waffle house and how simple and evocative the name is, akin to sex boat.
Adam says most porn tittles are take offs from existing brands and media.
BB says he went to see ‘The BFG’ and brings up a trailer he saw for a film titled ‘Monster Truck’ where a monster drives a truck, BB says he’s convinced the title came first for this movie, before the script.
Matt says the trailer is like something you see in a movie spoof, Gina asks a follow up and the move on.
2nd Caller Nate, Adam and BB signs his wife’s pregnant belly, he wants to know what they do for a name these days when it comes to naming kids.
BB says him and his wife are trying to keep their baby name a secret, Adam asks what part and BB says the name, Adam’s silence speaks volumes.
Adam says your baby name secret is safe with him like your idea for a reality show, he doesn’t care.
Adam talks about all of his friends with 9-10-year-old kids with Zoe and Chloe names for their kids, Gina says it’s the same thing with vintage names and Adam talks about how many Jennifer’s and Michelle’s he knew while in school.
Adam says you don’t want your kid to have the worlds coolest name as they will coast on it, when you name a kid “Jermajesty” they will coast unlike someone with a regular plain name like ‘Stacey’ which Adam recommends for a name.
Adam brings up how he learned of the name Natalia, from the actress on Saved By The Bell The New Class.
Adam says if you just take Carolla and put it in a vacuum you know it’s an Italian name, his first name threw people off hence he chose Sonny to answer Gina’s question.
3rd Caller Jason, he wants Adam’s take on ESPN’s the Body Issue, Adam jokes about Matt Fondiler rejecting their calls as Adam is too busy.
Jason brings up the nude photos and bare male assed Conor McGregor, Adam jokes about praying for a little back sack and says everyone needs clicks and downloads, skin is the best way to get hype and attention, it’s just the way humans are.
Adam is with the audience, he doesn’t want to have to picture Connor posing nude, not the Connor he knows.
Adam says that when you see a picture of Conor’s ass, it’s not going to be a revelation, it’s going to look like you expect, exactly as you expect.
BB brings up Vince Wilfork posing and they move on after he describes his physique to Gina.

What now feels like a Jack Silver mandated booking actually turned into a legendary bit as a hilarious guy would call in as Takeru Kobayashi, Joey’s former greatest challenger/opponent and past Nathan’s champion.
It turns out that guy was Jo Koy, most fans including myself had no idea until it was revealed much later on the podcast after Jo started guesting just a few years ago, weird and long Carolla podcast history all related to Mr. Chestnut.
