A Look at Big Mouth
"Here to talk about big mouth. We're here to talk about big mouth. So, we're here to talk about some specific one specific episode, and then there's a couple of things leading into it season three episode eight, where they introduced a character named Ali who is voiced by one of my favorite Comedians of all time Allie Wong And it gets really. But before we get into that, let me ask you. Lillian how'd you watched big mouth or you? A fan of big mouth? Is this a thing that you were just like all right? I'm psyched for this season. I I? Have I I really like like I almost didn't watch it. When it first came out, just because the Internet was so down on it and like just sort of treating it as like Oh. This is just gross gross out humor and stuff like that, but I inevitably did watch it and I really like it. It's like one of my favorite shows on Netflix lakes. So every time a new seasons come out I've always made sure to binge it, and yes, it does have a lot of gross out humor, but it's like it's not like you know Ren and stimpy, whereas just like Oh here's butts for its own sake or something like that. It's like in the service of something you know. Yeah League in this. Oh sorry. Continue almost all of my favorite comedians ever are in big mouth like eleven. Kroll I like John I didn't know that I. Like John Mullany until I saw this. I I especially love Jason Zukas, I love Jason Manzar can. And like the, there's like this weird movement on the Internet to just be like big is one of the worst things of all time, because and tying it back to ren and stimpy. The like lots of Internet disciples of John Kay. Who believe like you know animation beats should be strictly. You know by artists and story, board ESTS, and with no sort of. Slip I mean this is turning into an animation podcast now, but like with no sort of inkling of like scriptwriting or stuff like that and like big Ma, and if you look at big mouth like the artistic style is pretty ugly. Yeah but but I feel like that's on purpose to. Well, and I think that there's there's like every medium. There is a place for a lot of different things whether it's like the writing is so good that it makes up for the animation, which then they can hire great animators to make it better in the lions. I feel like Archer was like that at the beginning like the animation was Janke, but the writing was so good that held up. And now the animation is a lot better. If you see the newer episodes, yeah, like wow, yeah! I guess like with with big mouth me I didn't like it when I I watched it. At all I was put off by, and it's not necessarily the gross out. It was like the gross out for the reason of gross out was sort of like my like I'm good and I gave it another shot, and I'm happy, because I really did enjoy that for season once I finished I finished it. Yeah. I mean for as much as I. Liked it, I will you know cop to? It's not an easy show to get into yeah. But I think I think they do. Do a very not realistic by any means but like. A realistic humor of like sophomoric childish, but at the same time. Of elements that are very sophisticated and very adult, and very like you know what, yeah, we don't talk about ciswomen who go through puberty, really in a comedic sense right and so getting a lot of these voices is actually really good, and like the humor is very funny. Once you're able to sort of look past the fact that it's like Oh they're showing Dick's all the time. And it's like. I mean yeah, I mean it's funny. You mentioned that one of my favorite jokes in the series like I forget what the ultimate context of it, but it's very Meta joke where Andrew just basically mentions. or or maybe it was like the hormone monster basically mentioned like. Sort of animated adult animation and Andrew Responds like, but that's Ju-, but that's basically just animated child pornography, isn't it? And the Hormone Masha goes. Oh I hope not that would get people in a lot of trouble, and he just looks at the camera like right.

Is that nobody else can afford. Comedy central can't afford to pay that you know I mean they're making like millions of dollars and I'm not talking about just Dave Chapelle and stuff. I mean who are very funny but nowhere near Dave Chapelle all are making great money globalize them yes and now they can go to you know fifty countries well look at someone like Allie Wong right who was a friend of mine and a very funny comedian but she was just doing local show she had her netflix show. Come out especial come out and just like made her overnight. Someone people knew yeah. She didn't another special and that did even more and then she did a movie that you wrote that she stars in and that it even more so so it's interesting streaming was that when you're my maybe ear whatever always be my maybe yeah these my fourteen year old daughter loved that movie Oh yes. She likes all the net flicks ROM coms. There's a lot of Ramco Yeah Yeah. They've really like decided to go all in on that. It was a great idea. Yes they stopped making them. They did 'cause nobody was they. We had this fifteen twenty year run in them and then people stop going to them in the movie theater but then every time they're on cable or in blockbuster wherever everyone eventually see them right so the net flux just looked at it and goes allergist make them yeah there's come right to make the big SEC have netflix run. No it's Amazon so they're like competitor which is great because they were great to us but plot. If it was on Netflix that would Amazon forever Amazon forever Amazon's around is Amazon going to die. I don't think so not only is not gonNA die think it'll they're just gonNA eventually. They'll figure out this content thing like they figured out groceries you you have to or music and all the other stuff that then at some point they're just like hey. Let's just take content from everybody. It is interesting because I would say that like content creative aspect to it's it doesn't really apply but Netflix Netflix figured get it out. Net flicks took sort of a silicon valley approach to entertainment and it has worked for them and it's for them. It's volume right. They like make a lot of stuff five percent heads but that's still a huge. I I had a meeting at Netflix. Couple of years ago for something and in that year they were making eighty movies eight zero movie yeah no studio ever the history has made eighty movies. Yeah it's crazy yeah and you said volume is one thing the other thing I think is intelligence like they.

"He's been in so many he's been in so many things to the point that I'm like I don't even know what I remember remember him from because I've seen a lot of things that he's done. But yeah, he's such a great actor. James, you want to do you want me to go after you? Oh, yes. So I really enjoyed this movie. Especially I'm not I'm not a huge room rom com person I think they tend to be pretty corny. And also, they make me mad about. Like what they say about love. Always somebody times, I'm just like this isn't real like romance doesn't work like feels like it gives people false expectations of, like what they're like, partner should be like and you know. But I, I didn't feel that way about this movie. You know. I only had like a like the tiniest of gripes and it came at the very end. We'll talk about it when we get there. But. The, the comment. I mean first of all, the script is really good. Because so tight, it's the comedy is just like written really. Well, the actors are obviously amazing round apart and Allie Wong. I, I was like a little nervous at first when they were like playing their highest guys go versus. Like I was like is hard for you all to play this. Like pretty sure rent forties, like Allie, probably at least late thirties in. Yeah. And so I was just like, but it was fun. It was still fun. And it's only for a little bit, but they did a really good job. I thought of infusing culture into a film with like draw said, without making it about it like it's not like a film. That's like just about Asian Asian cuisine. You know, like, but it's, it's present throughout the movie in a way, that makes sense for the movie, which I really like. And I liked how like kind of messy. Everything was, and it wasn't like it wasn't straightforward. And they both had like faults. I love it when both men and women up. Overcome. But then, like, you know, like somebody just, you know, there's just so many things to relate to. You know, being afraid of taking risks taking chances just completely consuming yourself in work. And like going after things that you want. But, but you don't actually or that you think that you need. But you don't actually want, you know what I mean? Like valley, Wong's character and the boyfriend that she was going after. And then, of course, I just have to say canneries was incredible. Oh my God. It was it was like. Going there yet. But yeah. I mean, I'm just gonna say I mean, we'll talk more. But like holy crap. I mean he's had the best summer almost anybody John wick for gist Toy Story. Oh, yeah. I haven't seen Toy Story yet. But I mean I haven't either. So anyway, that's all for now. I definitely liked it. Yeah. It was really strong. I and I hope a lot of people saw it. I don't know if that have just like, in terms of, like, romantic comedies. Like there are very few in my opinion, rent economies that are that are like on this kind of level. So. Yeah, that's what I yeah. Yeah, I, I really really liked it. I liked Dorada didn't know what to expect going into the movie, except for like, I think these actors are great..

I don't know i feel like people are kind of like going are kind of turning on her a little bit. I don't know here's interesting. You brought just like asian ending. I was talking to somebody from the industry and he was like well. You know it's not a question right. It's not a coincidence that like therefore pilots featuring asian american actors because of the success of christians but he was like.

"Like this. So I don't want to like I don't wanna see here and be like that was British. that's. That's I totally get it. And I admire that feeling. But we, we all I think are actively trying to move us towards a point where people of color people from any marginalized background can have we have so much inclusive media, that we also get to have mediocre things. I totally whatever. Right. You know. And I think we only get to that point by being honest about our reactions. That's why I was like I was kinda glad that you agree to go ahead and have this conversation today, because if this film didn't work for you. I think it's important to say this is why it didn't work. I'm not writing off rom coms. I'm not writing off Asian leads. I'm not writing off alley wall. Randall park, you whatever I'm reading up. Randall park completely. I'm sorry. Okay. Now done now, go fight. Yes, I will. Listen to the message, I was like, why was this guy cast like there's no chemistry between him and Allie Wong like this could have? I think that he was the lowest point in the film, because for me, there's a lot of stuff that didn't, I'm not sure that it was putting on my coat, it was particularly them and I kept being like they could have cast anyone in this role. They could have found someone who, like vibe with her better. Like even if they really wanted his character to be this kind of, like douchebag, he asshole e kind of like a to me, it felt really like a really shitty class stereotype in a way that I don't think worked well, but regardless, they could have found someone that, like I did not believe their relationship and their chemistry at all for me. I find Randall park, very likable, or I think he has a potential to be very likable for me. He was one hundred percent let down by the writing, which is his own coda that reading, but still, like I can see him being great in something, or let me, let me, maybe let me numerate just a few of the reasons, again, why this film, specific reasons why like evidence of why this film didn't work for me that, that have to do with. The character if Marcus like he you know, there's a point at which like I mean where they're kind of just fighting all the time. Marcus says something like. I forget, what provokes it, but she says, like, oh, I have to go to New York and open the new restaurant or something. And he says, oh, right. Because you're a celebrity chef you know what other term I hate elevated, Asian cuisine, is not supposed to be elevated. It's supposed to be authentic, and it's like dude, Marcus like, maybe there's a conversation to be had here about authentic and catering to rich white people, which he says it may maybe like that has some truth with but oh my God. He is such an asshole in the way that he goes about it. Like he seems to just like hate her success on some level to he win when she talks about, maybe having a baby on her own, like he is so fucked up to her about that, like just so fucked up. And so, like I mean, and then it's as if the two of them don't even they're supposed to be in this, like happy relationship phase where they finally gotten together, but they haven't even talked about the New York trip to me. These are all just like red flags and it's like, oh my God. These two would be terrible together. They don't communicate well at all like nothing nothing to me. About this relationship seems right? Or like it makes sense for them to be together. And so I just I just couldn't see why, again I just couldn't see why I'm supposed to like root for them to end up together. I, I haven't really a place. I was. I saw I listened to an interview where Randall park and Wong were being interviewed talking about the film. And my, my sense from the way, they explained like the development of the idea was that Allie Wong kind of had this idea and Randall park..

Let's move on Jodi, males. Like why is he talking? Attempt. See what? Not only travels through time he affects the minds of otherwise intelligent people. I'm gonna read an Email from Joe. Who writes, I'm a huge fan of nineties, hip hop, and the movie opened on, in my opinion, one of the best songs of that era, ninety three 'til 0 this era and its music is also a female in the show fresh off the boat. And I'm wondering why they decided to include it in the film, as well to be clear. I'm also glad they did. What about them? Well, that was another thing that kind of came from a real place while we were writing it was, it's the music that I love that I grew up with and yeah. That a lot of us who came up in the nineties. It was everywhere, and, and a big part of our lives. And so it was a big part of Marcus's live life. And the fact that he is in this band that came from a real place. I used to be a ban in a van right out of college. Very similar to the one in the movie and the van in the movies, just basically, like what if that ban from college kept playing well into their adult hood? So it it came from a real place in a real love for the music, who wrote the reps. We heard a bit of a punch Tian Reeves in the last break, he wrote those who perform, I wrote the I, I read the lyrics that I performed all the songs there, there is another song where they area legend lyrics born who plays quasar in the movie. Yeah. He he contributes another verse to one of the songs. You don't hear it in the movie, but it is out there on the internet. I saw him in the film, and I was like, is there. Yeah. Lyrics born and the music was produced by Dan, the automated, who is another legendary a- a- bay area producer go. One more thing I wanted to ask you about the look of this film. It's very you capture the bay area very well. Allie Wong is glam to death in some of the shots. Whoever your wardrobe designer is deserves a bonus. Talk about just the look of this film. We wanted to have this kind of like these characters from two very different worlds..

Sadie Alexander spoke to the audience about the persistence of racial discrimination and the status of black workers as marginal workers joined the indicator from planet money for more profiles of unsung economist and other topics from economics in business everyday. And in less than ten minutes back now to our conversation with Lisa Hanna, Walter new animated series, two and birdie is about thirty something women best friends who happen to be birds and debuted last week. On netflix. Now birdie's boyfriend speckled voiced by Steven Yeun. He's in every episode. But the show is to get in Bernie talk about centering the show around their relationship. How did you think through what that relationship was going to be and what you wanted us to take away from it? I really wanted to create stories about women who are getting into their thirties. And it's a little bit different from when you're in your twenty s because he start moving in these drastically different life directions. Like, you know, suddenly one of your friends is married. They have a house. They have children are life. Looks like it's totally put together. And you meanwhile, are still trying to figure out how to do your taxes and pay your bills, and you worried you're gonna get left behind. So that's sort of a central conflict in the story. But, you know, meanwhile, the person who seems like they have their together is still a mess on the inside. And they're like is this what I want. Did. I make the right decision. Like, your thirties are such a an interesting decade. Yeah. I hear you on that. And I can certainly. Relate to being a person in wants thirty who has to trying to get his stuff to get exactly. But just to just to kind of keep it friendly for NPR. But I also kind of was interested by the idea that this is a show that issue said tweeted that it's about women, but for everyone and as a man watching this show, I kind of was I was that interested me to that. This is a story that has elements. I can relate to but at the same time, I feel like I'm getting a lens into something about being a modern day woman that that is new to me in terms of the media landscape, but I wouldn't have seen but for a female animator sharing it with me through her is. Yeah, I think it's it's important to represent what that viewpoint is. But I don't just want like other women just like me to watch it it kind of feels like preaching to the choir. Like, I I want men to watch media created by women. About women. I mean, it just seems right? And some of it's going to blow guys minds, you know, that right? I guess so I mean a lot of men worked on the show. It's not like it was just all created from female viewpoint likely have male writers. We've milk producers like there's a lot of women who work on the show too. But yeah, I think there's something in it for everyone really also like will one of the one of the things that kind of stood out to us was that it's finding ways to talk about some of the issues that have come up in this kind of metoo time's up era that are being discussed very seriously. But by doing it through comedy, it gives you another way to talk about it. Here's a clip from episode five in which birdie voiced by. Allie Wong is at a meeting of a group called women taking up space or wounds, and the director has told birdie to come up with a personal mantra. Here's that clip from episode five of two in Bertie.

And then I was like this seems so stupid, and then I did it in like right right before your smile breaks out your smirk is the most natural. So that's also a little. The really good tip is you were doing and what it was like. Thinking about the smirk emoji and has that is my favorite one. So. Glasses leading emoji. Yeah. I like the head is exploiting. Yes.

And they're putting out specials so fast so rapidly that you can you can watch a new special from Allie Wong every two years and in between that get Mullany and gaff again and Regan and Seinfeld like all the goats of of doing it and L up and coming. It's it's the golden era of standup comedy on Netflix. So you should be binge-watching all of those specials on there. It's so good. Let's give a comedy tip a comedy recommendation for a Netflix special round round the room just want. Yeah. Just one John Mullany new in town is a perfect comedy special..

"They never let me do that. Even though I felt like I was good enough. But now it's like I've gone from zero to having my own show out of fucking nowhere. It was insane. So we made a season of TV I never slept. I was so anxious. We shot it like ten years before. I was number one in the call sheet. I was a P A and a comedy central pilot. Like, I was like I was a comedy central pilot. And now ten years later, I'm in the fucking show number one. It's like what life is thinking of the times at wanted to die. It's like, oh, I'm so glad I stayed alive. Just to know that this could happen, you know, to midseason one and then they really like season one and. Basically before it even aired. They're like we're probably going to want to do in other season because we really like this and it's different at shot. Well, and it's cool and crazy, and you know, comedy central is such a weird thing. Now where no one's watching their shit. Really? Because like because it's true. I mean, this isn't like I'm not even trashing them. Like, oh, Oh, no. no, no, one watches it because no one has cable. Well, yeah. It's like, you know, the Showtime show, I was on like, I don't think lot of people saw because I tell hey on Showtime, and they're like, I don't have that. And they watch it on their phone cable. They've Netflix Hulu, they pay for these subscription services cable as a dying beast to a certain degree. And so I'm on cable, and I have a show, and it's I think it's really good. And it's reviewed really well. And no one is seen it. No one. No one's like like, my friends haven't seen it. Because now my friends can afford cable. So it's like this really funny sort of place to be in where comedy central likes the show and they wanted to keep going, but the ratings don't really justify what we're doing. So it's confusing words like they have to have something on by. No one's really watching. It even though it is good and people do like it who see it. So it's a confusing time. There's just so much content out right now, I know net flicks comedy central. I guess the two big boys. But then you've got the stuff on YouTube now, Hulu, Amazon, I mean, I see comedy specials on the weirdest channels logo. Really good. Really good comedians to are like doing specials on like epics. And you're like what is ethics Showtime had a bunch. And you don't know it's overwhelming it's overwhelming. And it's also just weird. What hits because sometimes really good stuff hits? You know, sometimes it's like, yeah. That person like John Mullany has specials that killed on Netflix. He's such an incredible comedian, but then sort of like random people get picked up on like there's so many Netflix specials, but then it's like oh net. Now is what we're talking about. Or just or Allie Wong got huge. And she's so funny, but it's like easily could have not gotten huge, you know, it's sort of like, they're super funny. People inflicts not getting huge, and they're super people super funny shows on comedy central or like just random networks. Netflix American vandal was a huge hit first year the second season just probably was really good. But just kind of went away because the them it's a really weird time where everyone wants so much content. But is anyone watching it? I mean, I was the problem with I'm dying up here. You know? I mean, you look at that. I mean, Melissa Leo's Oscar she's incredible. Wow. How is this? Not like like Ray. Donovan kills and then I'm dying up here. Just never never took. It's really weird kind of it's bizarre because the media it really is who the media wants to make stars for the most part sometimes things go viral on YouTube and like like Russell Peters essentially as famous because his stuff went big on the internet..
"allie wong" Discussed on IVFML
"Okay. So that sounds complicated. But lovely I think for me though, it just sounds too uncertain to be potentially parenting children temporarily and then relinquishing them back to birth family. I I just I still think you, and I would probably have gone with the adoption agency route, and I feel like that kind of wraps this up like that's the answer. No more problems. We just needed to spend a ton of money in way. Oh, no. You're making a face. Yes. I am making a face. Well, one thing I wanted to bring up is because you and I are two different races. There is at least one more thing to consider. I am a jungle Asian according to Allie Wong, and you are a chosen person according to the bible. Okay. Yes. You are so chosen what what I mean is is as adoptive parents. We have a lot more to talk about than your average same race couple, for example, Emily and her partner are both white. Here's how they discussed approaching transracial adoption when you go through the process, you are able to know Tate, you know, at specifically as you want. What race you'd be willing to adopt foster adopt, you know, on our forms. I could've put white babies only I could've put black babies only. I you know, I could have we I didn't specify any particular race. And was that something that you talked about with your partner beforehand. Like, hey, what should we do for this part? I mean, I think we both just felt that we were open to any child who needed a home that sounds reasonable. Right. It feels like that's what two thousand fourteen us would have chosen to. Let's keep listening. So now that you've been. Been a mother for six years to a black child in retrospect, do you think that that training that you got was enough or do you have a different conception of what you and your partner? I thought when you were trying to check those boxes by I wasn't clueless about the fact that transracial adoption is a weighty issue. The fact that we didn't receive training about it doesn't mean that I wasn't thinking about it. Or that? I didn't do my own research. You know, I had to sort of do that work myself. I've certainly my eyes have been opened about a lot of things in that time that you can only sort of learned through the experience of actually raising a black child. You know, I'm learned a lot in the past six years that I didn't learn just from reading about transracial adoption. He literally. He had a his first police interaction at three years old. We want we had we had a a playground incident. We had he ran into a little girl on his scooter accidentally and the little girl's mother called the police were you there with him. Yeah. On my three year old child about happened lost it. I mean, look we were lucky that the police, you know, treat it as the sort of laughable situation that it was. But it's scary. Because what happens when again, he's twelve and I'm not there and something like that happens. You know? So when she's calling the police are you they're just trying to talk to her like, why are you doing this? Like, hey, I wouldn't say I was talking. I was maybe yelling. And he was scared. You know, he was like going to jail. What's going to happen? Like, he was terrified. I just wonder like what that woman's goal was like, what did she think was going to happen when the police came I think possibly she was trying to set up some kind of like, litigation like, maybe she was I can't I'm not I can't say for sure what her motivation was. But I feel there has to be a racial component. There. You know, when the police came how did they deal with it? I mean, they they separated us and ask both of us sort of what was going on. And then they just they sort of just waved us away. And they they spoke to her. But you know, they didn't they didn't follow up with us, really. They did they'd got an ambulance for the little girl. The little girl was fine. She had like a bloody lip, but they called an ambulance for. Oh my gosh. So going home from the park that day..

And now, you're I mean, it's probably one of the biggest specials you. Allie Wong Elisa three the biggest specials this past year that one that one. I'm telling you man, they said, no. And and I was like no you can't say no to this because I was good. But you know, man, I'm killing right now. How are you saying to me right now, you are you are an example, I have nineteen different angles. I wanna talk to you about. But you are the example of like a guy who plays huge theaters like huge amphitheatres like huge venues still goes to the clubs does three weekends in a row in like, San Jose. Like, I would say brea bigger clubs like maybe even raise the biz phrase, the biggest friend right now. Six hundred and I did sixteen sixteen shows finish my last Sunday. It was so crazy. 'cause last year I did sixteen shows that the old brea, and that was only three hundred seats and now six hundred seats, and I did sixteen shows. So in my hand, I'm like, I just thirty two shows that's fucking six. If you really think about it. It's double shows the brea, improv. I don't think there's any. I don't even think fluffy at his heyday in running south, southern California. But is sixteen shows anywhere. That's crazy. Does it? Nobody you get what I'm saying three hundred now six hundred zero. Yeah. Out sixteen times too because it's the size it to improve the older proverbs three hundred. Did you have any nerves like were you nervous at all putting on this world tour? Yeah. Really? Yeah. And then that bus. Are you kidding me? It was such an investment by the bus. Or did you know you lease those running a leasing a bus remind or there's so fucking expensive. Let me tell you Burt. And it is so cool because I appreciate you on a business level on so many other levels. Like, I study you you know, what I mean? Like, I watch you you motivate me. But one thing I love about us. You are not scared to invest, and that's that's what sucks about this business is people don't want invest in themselves. They wanna use other people's money to invest it's like man, no one wants to invest in something that they're not passionate about if you're passionate fucking invest. So let's start. Let's let's go to the beginning. Everything because there's so much. I want to talk to you about. Yeah. Because I want I want people to get like a full spectrum of where you are today. And where you are today is one of the tops Netflix specials. Probably ever that. They've had one of the top Neville specials ever. I mean, obviously, you know. I'm sorry. We're going to compare to ship. Hell, you know, those guys. But to be honest with you, you're up there with Schipol your special Chapelle when it comes to people that watched it. It's fucking overwhelming. Restaurant who are podcast or biggest one of the biggest world tours in the business. But I want to go back to the very beginning. Because our listen to your WPF. Yeah. And it was fucking fascinating. It was really fucking fascinating. There's a lot. I didn't know about you, and your mom and your your family. And and I don't want to re go over the I don't want to redo the WF everyone should go here that one of the things that fucking blew me with ways that your mom created the Filipino community.

A dirty poor Asians, that's movie. Dan, why gay? We're right here. Can we put. Right on air. What it is. It's like the one, you know, here's what it and I and I said this to Allie Wong last night and she goes, don't repeat that and I don't know why I can repeat it here. I want to repeat it. Yeah, I can't jealous of what of the other. I don't know what sexual? No, no, it's because like I know Jimmy Tang I know alka feeder, they've although my podcast cannon, I toured together many years ago and you know to know he's, he's not. I did a movie with Michelle Yao, so I love her. She's great, and and I just I wanted to be I wanted to be in. It's so bad. What part I I wanted to be an kens part, but when we called, you know, I had moved the odd in and then they wouldn't. You know something how I don't know what happened. But you know, the one number one movie that I knew it was going to be success too because the great cast and you skipped your addition for it had to do shoot. Eating or something, shoot something else and that amiss. But then now it's out and then it's like I feel like I missed the boat or whatever, but it's just good in general. It is good. You know what. One when when there's a, what is that? When there's a tide or nine high when all boats rise, we all the boats rise. Yeah, that Thomas HAMAs Lennon to me Tomlin and from Reno. Nine one one. Our friend, Tom, Tom, yeah, from Tomlin goes, everyone's gonna rise. So you know, but well, I said, what if minority sung like the Titanic? But he's, I know just imagine you're one of the boats are still in the water. So I'm gonna rise with everybody, you know..
"allie wong" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"Clearly people watch, and now they just crank out more of them. So with this, if if that if that movie that came out on Friday hits, they're just gonna make more, you know, and we're seeing them go go into the teen rom com market already because they know there's people like my daughter who go on Netflix every every day every week and are just gonna watch any movie that there's some girl that they can identify with who's some romantic entanglements in aware. So isn't this thin less a win for representation in Asian American more win for rom, coms. Yeah, you probably right though. You can flip that around and say, it's a win for representation to because the character, although I didn't understand that the why the dad had to be the guy aid from sex. Why didn't you when you watch the movie in the opening scenes? It's like her older sisters, their. Did you think that that was the mom originally? Yes. And it was buddy. I know that the same thing like why did they cast a woman that looks like her mom to be your older sister? It was a joke immediately. I went on my ipad and looked at how old the 'cause this was her older sister was supposed to be going off to college. Right. So like seventeen eighteen? Yeah. And she's thirty in real life which was not a shocker. But yeah, that was another thing. It's like you do that movie. You can't find a couple of teen actors the thirty year old. The casting directors are always going to say it's hard to cast Asian people which hopefully it gets easier with more successes. But yet none of the sisters looked remotely like each other, and I know that happens in families, but it was kind of jarring. I think the more I've learned about this from just talking to people under universal last few years. There's a lot of stuff that hasn't even really been written about talked about that. I don't think most people know like David show the the the artists, right? Like the biggest pop culture moment of his life was when the Asian guy in Walking Dead had sex with the white girl thought that was a seminal tipping point because as he made the case like that doesn't happen, we never get the white girl in the movies, and I'm like, really any just any lays out the whole thing. And he's like, yeah, we don't get the Waco period. That was the first time. And here in stuff like, wow, this is really interesting in dense, but but as make a movie Bill. It could be the David show story stories, crazy while his. I mean, that's not even a movie. That's more like that's a twenty episode docu series. But yeah, it does seem like it does seem like there's ample opportunity and do think like Netflix has some great stuff and some bad stuff. But one of the good things is they, they go to where where the audiences and if the audience is here for this, they're going to keep making this stuff. So what is anything on the horizon or was the say it was this? The big? Was this the big Hollywood moment? I think there's like a rom com coming up with Allie Wong and Randall park parks from fresh off the boat in Allie Wong is obviously the stand up. The next major thing. Oh, there's a John chill movie coming out. I think very shortly where it's like he's a kind of a Liam Niessen type role. So I think that's kind of groundbreaking. That's pretty grim. No. I mean, you know, hopefully a lot of other things come out. You know, it's funny because I actually get envious sometimes like in slack with all my colleagues when we talk about like succession or thrones or Atlanta, or moonlight or whatever, and like fill kinda bummed out that crazy ridge Asians is our contribution to the conversation. So hopefully we'll get something a little bit meteor will maybe it'll open the doors. Yeah. Yeah. I wanna be positive..
