The Weekender: ‘Ride’ with Me

Movie of the Week

While We’re Young
Noah Baumbach has been extremely hit or miss lately, but his last (Frances Ha) was a big hit with me. Still, there’s always the fear this – basically Neighbors, but in Brooklyn instead of the ‘burbs – could be another Greenberg, which remains one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen.

Arguably the greatest cartoon of the ’00s, King of the Hill has taken a while to get to DVD. The writers still found ways to make Hank’s bewilderment seem fresh, while adding details to Arlen that make it as vast a town as Springfield or Pawnee, Indiana. Standout episodes include Dale’s switch from conspiracy theorist to flag-waver, Peggy’s horrifying discovery that Arlen was founded by prostitutes and Hank’s adventures at a megachurch.
