Plus, Ricky, Alonso, and Drea make their cases for the most quintessentially British movie character of all time to the resident Brit, Josie Long.

In news, the crew discusses celebrity fundraising efforts for Mexico City and Puerto Rico, the production of the four Avatar sequels, Canadian filmmaker, Shiraz Higgins, wanting to charge white men more at the box office, and Arnold Schwarzenegger dropping by a random gym in Leeds, UK.
