1979's Best Picture winner, Kramer vs. Kramer, gets a bad rap for being too sad. It's sad. But it isn't sad-sad. You get my meaning. It's a strong Best Picture winner and features a great performance from Dustin Hoffman.
This week's episode features a discussion about the Academy Award winner for Best Picture from 1969, Midnight Cowboy, starring Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman. This movie was the only Best Picture winner to be rated X. You could say "this isn't your father's x-rated movie." Unless, of course, your father watches x-rated movies. Well, it still isn't what you are thinking of. Or even what your father is thinking of. Either way, the movie was re-rated as R a few years after its original release. So, I guess it is now an R-rated Best Picture winner - and there are a ton of those. Give the episode a listen to hear what the guys thought of the film.
