Bolt

We don't have any strong feelings about this movie and we are really wondering if anyone else does? We're pretty sure Disney doesn't. This movie is so neutral that we repeatedly get sidetracked: talking about cats, trying to decide which states are actually part of the Midwest, and food waste. I think we actually have stronger feelings about the other topics we discussed than we do about this movie.

Things we talked about:

  • 06:10 - What's up with the cast?
  • 09:51 - People still own VHS tapes?
  • 17:55 - Kids' reactions to Bolt
  • 20:00 - Bolt's plot
  • 26:40 - If Bolt were a real-life dog, this movie would be really cruel
  • 30:25 - Is it illegal to declaw a cat in NY State?
  • 38:40 - Do they end up in Ohio in other movies like Toy Story
  • 48: 48 - John Travolta, Tom Cruise, and Scientology in Hollywood
  • 1:00:00 - Our opinions and determinations
  • Up Next: 101 Dalmatians, both animated and live-action
