    Our Father

    ★★

    Dr. Cline was trusted by hundreds of women, and he violated that trust for some perverted sense of spiritual calling. The documentary makes its viewer angry, mostly, because doctors in the 1970s and 1980s thought that could get away with this despicable behavior, never realizing their comeuppance would be delivered by genetic testing.

    Those that believe in climate change made a film dunking on people that don't believe in it -- as if this would somehow be persuasive to those people? (Or that they'd even watch it?)

    Jonah Hill, what are you doing with your career? You don't have to play this frat bro Oedipal lost dude anymore.

    Moon Mater

    ★★

    All of Mater's Tall Tales have the same set-up:
    Mater makes a major claim.
    Lightning McQueen responds quizzically.
    Mater recounts his past life as a major something or other.
    Lightning doubts it.
    Mater reminds him he was there.
    Lightning disputes it.
    Something suggests Mater was telling the truth.

    References for adults:
    - "Apollo 13"
    - "Roger, Roger" may be a subtle "Airplane!" reference

    Puns:
    - Impala 13
    - Auto-naut
    - "When does an astronaut eat?" "At launch time."
