@Thisfunktional Podcast – MOVIES – Miguel Artate BEATRIZ AT DINNER

https://audioboom.com/posts/6310004-thisfunktional-podcast-movies-miguel-artate-beatriz-at-dinner
Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

Director Miguel Artate talks with Jesus Figueroa, @Thisfunktional of Thisfunktional.com, about “Beatriz at Dinner,” available now on Digital HD, DVD and On Demand.

Artate talks about making sure actress Selma Hayek’s heart and intelligence were at the forefront of her role as Beatriz, making the ending something that sticks with the audience and trying to get Hayek an Oscar nomination for her fantastic performance.

Salma Hayek shines in this provocatively funny fish-out-of-water comedy. Beatriz (Hayek), an immigrant from a poor Mexican town, draws upon her innate kindness as a spiritual health practitioner in L.A.

Doug Strutt (John Lithgow) is a rich and ruthless real-estate developer.

When fate brings them together at a dinner party, it leads to a culture clash of wildly comic proportions – and a night that will change both their worlds forever.

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

“Scream Queen Stream” with Jessica Cameron and Heather Dorff with special Guest Lisa Ovies decide to torture their tastebuds by taking a winner takes nothing BABY FOOD CHALLENGE.

Check out the gagging and disgusted faces which ensue.

At the very least you get to see three grown, beautiful women trying what seems to be some of the most disgusting organic vegetarian friendly baby food, which Heather Dorff bought.

Each baby food container is either a single ingredient, two ingredient or three ingredient meal which mothers feed to their children.

The challenge was to guess as many of the ingredients in the containers. Each correct guess earned one point and there is no penalty for an incorrect guess.

Who guessed the most correct? Who had the funniest response? Who found a loophole to the way they guessed?

Check out this funny “Scream Queen Stream” and find out.
