Sean and Aaron pretty much watch a Lifetime Original Movie this week, even if it does inexplicably star Rosario Dawson and Katheine Heigl. Plus, Aaron tells stories of (sorta) being in movies with both of this film's stars while Sean reviews more movies!
Comedians, critics, actors... lots of things apply to your hosts. What matters here is that they watch movies before most people, and then tell you about them. Truthfully. If you can handle the truth. Every week we bring you reviews of movies, recorded immediately after an advance screening. No critical distance, no pretension. Just our thoughts, before we even get home.

Sean and Aaron take their annual trip to a weird foreign horror movie! This time, it's the French people-eatin' party RAW. Will the stomachs of these seasoned horror veterans actually be turned? Should you figure out what this movie is and how to see it? Plus, more on BELKO EXPERIMENT, GOING IN STYLE, SMURFS, BOSS BABY and more!
Sean is alone (...or is he?) to tackle GHOST IN THE SHELL, the manga adaptation shrouded in controversy. He doesn't have a hot take, but it's certainly a lukewarm take. Plus, thoughts on THE BOSS BABY for some reason!
Sean and Aaron are joined once again by noted Grown Dad Jason Clark (@jmclark8) for a last-minute viewing of POWER RANGERS. Can this too-late reboot defy expectations and deliver? Also, in a YCHTT exclusive, Jason and Sean peer-pressure Aaron into undergoing a live Harry Potter house sorting!
Sean is joined by YCHTT Chief Emotions Correspondent Amy Whipple (@itsamywhipple) to discuss the live-action version of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. The internet has things to say about this movie, as you may have heard — can Sean and Amy answer all the thinkpieces? Plus, they'll take on your childhood directly by counting down their Top 5 Disney Animated Movies!
It's part two of the Big Ol' Monsters Big Ol' Cinematic Universe, as 2014's Godzilla (which we liked!) is followed by KONG: SKULL ISLAND! Will Aaron and Sean be as impressed with Monkey Platoon as they were with Lizard Brawl? Plus, long after the moment of cultural relevance has died down, recapping our thoughts on the 2017 Oscars!
Sean is joined by frequent guest Eric Leslie (@ravenlock) to talk about Hugh Jackman's Wolverine epic, LOGAN. Where does the latest X-Men flick rank among the comic-book canon? Plus, Eric tries to teach Sean not to be afraid of the future, with mixed results.
Take some lunch money from those fools at your Oscar party! In the first half of the episode, Sean and Aaron discuss what SHOULD win at this Sunday's Oscars, along with what should've been nominated and was unjustly snubbed. In the second half, Robin Hitchcock (@hitchdied) returns to the show to chat with Sean about what WILL take home the gold.
Sean and Aaron don't know much about Chinese history, but they know that THE GREAT WALL isn't that great. But probably not for the reasons you're expecting! They break down the international action flick before Sean tries to convince Aaron that it's okay to love Harry Potter as a grown-ass man. Plus a bonus review of FIST FIGHT!
Epicast family member Marta Mazzoni (@icantfindmarta) returns to the show to break down THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE. Will Arnett = great Batman or best Batman? Plus, Marta's trip to The Magic Castle and Sean's trip to the Alamo Draft House! Tune in!
Who was your favorite movie dad?? Aaron and Jason list their top ten favorite movie Dads (one tv Dad, a couple animated Dads) along with the top 5 worst movie Dads.

In a much different sort of bonus episode, Sean tries to just have a light-hearted trashing of M. Night Shyamalan's SPLIT ... but can't help but get pretty upset about it. Things get real.
Sean is joined by legitimate movie expert Robin Hitchcock (@hitchdied) for a wide-ranging talk about Oscars, how to watch movies without getting frustrated at everything and much more. Eventually, this includes reviews of THE FOUNDER and ELLE!
Sean and official YCHTT third host Missy Moreno (@sikeitsmissy) get real, thanks to Martin Scorsese. His epic drama SILENCE is the last hotly-anticipated 2016 film to hit national theaters — but is it among the filmmaker's classics? Plus mini-reviews of LIVE BY NIGHT and PATRIOT'S DAY, and rapping about Hufflepuff!
Don't let the Oscars taking place in freakin' March or whenever fool you — 2016 is over! 2017 has begun! Sean and Aaron take to the Epicast studios to preview everything that's coming down the pike this year, from Star Wars to Kong, sci-fi to comedy, good to The Emoji Movie.
It's the fourth annual YCHTT wrap-up episode. Five films have been declared champion in the past: 12 Years a Slave (Aaron's 2013 pick), Gravity (Sean's 2013 pick), Interstellar (the consensus 2014 pick), Mad Max: Fury Road (Aaron's 2015 pick) and Anomalisa (Sean's 2015 pick). Which films will join that roster? Listen and find out!
It's a special joint episode of You Can't Handle the Truth and Grown Dad Business — and the gang's all here! Sean and Aaron are joined by Missy Moreno (@sikeitsmissy) and Jason Clark (@jmclark8) to talk about ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. Will it live up to the hype — and the Force Awakens pedigree? How many hip-hop songs will Aaron and Missy create? Is Sean still mad about Will Smith? Why does Jason hang out with his daughter's boyfriend? All this and more!
The first Bonus Episode in more than a year is here to tide you over until the crew can get together for a Rogue One spectacular. Sean takes to the Honda Civic to review COLLATERAL BEAUTY and declare the A-List status of Will Smith officially dead!
Sean and Aaron see if a good cast can pull the generic-looking OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY past its comedy rivals. Plus, Sean talks about his Best Picture vote and reviews some of the 737 movies he's seen lately.
Aaron and Sean promise that they talk about Moana on this week's episode. They do. They really do. They just talk about the Disney/Netflix rumors and the overall state of the movie business, for better and for worse, for a while first. But then — Moana! Which is good! Happy Thanksgiving, moviegoers!
Sean is joined by official YCHTT next-host-up Missy Moreno (@sikeitsmissy) to review FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM, the Harry Potter spin-off. Plus, stuff on the new WONDER WOMAN trailer and — because Missy is here — diversions about Star Wars aplenty!
Sean and Aaron reviewed the remake of Magnificent Seven earlier this year, so it's only natural that they deal with the original. No, not the Yul Brynner one, the ORIGINAL — Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. And thanks to Row House Cinema, they did it with bento boxes and tea! Plus: no politics! We promise!
Eric Leslie (@ravenlock) returns to the show to join Sean in facing off with the following: latest Marvel installment DOCTOR STRANGE; a mall guard who kicks them out of a mall that has no business giving mall guards Segways anymore; an insanely nitpicky gripe with John Carpenter's Halloween; and much more!
More than 150 episodes after her initial appearance, Addi Twigg (@addiful) returns to the show to talk about the Da Vinci Code sequel INFERNO, quiz Sean on inappropriate activities he engaged in as a teenager and, of course, use foul language. Plus an evaluation of Tom Hanks (pre- and post-David Pumpkins) and more!
