Kristen Stewart: An Exhaustive Examination

Welcome to the Rileys (2010)
“Mallory” is a moody runaway teen from Florida who hates cops and works as a dancer in New Orleans. One night at work, she strikes up a conversation with a middle aged man named Doug Riley, who is trying to avoid his coworkers at a business convention. After a brief misunderstanding about his line of work, the two strike up an unlikely friendship and bond over marijuana and home renovation. They hang out a lot because Doug doesn’t like being alone and Mallory doesn’t have any authoritative adult influences in her life. Soon Doug becomes a boarder at Mallory’s home. After several days of sharing life experiences and learning from each other, Doug’s wife shows up…and is surprisingly calm about the whole situation. In fact, she temporarily moves in with them and they have a whole little family situation. As Mallory feels more pressure from the Rileys to accept more responsibility for her life, the living situation reaches its boiling point – ultimately dismantling the found family unit. 

Join co-hosts Vanessa and Toben on a quest that began (in Volume 1) with one of the most pressing cinematic questions of our time: what’s the best movie Blake Lively’s ever been in?
