There’s just something about a terrible kids’ movie that brings out the best (?) in us, so we dive headfirst into the CGI flop Legends of OZ: Dorothy’s Return. Meanwhile, Stuart gives important advice to our kidnapped listeners, Dan inadvertently pitches the new hit movie “Uncatchable,” and Bizzarro Elliott makes an appearance.
