On this week’s episode, Alana and her guest Mary Holland (Happiest Season, Golden Arm) talk about making movies, getting married during covid and the difference between social anxiety vs. instinct. Producer/husband/roommate is fuming about the neighbors parking their car in the driveway and may or may not punch them in the face (definitely not as they are actually quite nice).

If there is one movie that we're obsessed with recently, it's the arm wrestling comedy Golden Arm. It follows a baker named Mel, who is played by Mary Holland (Happiest Season), as she enters the world of competitive arm wrestling. The film is as sweet as it is funny. And it has everything from arm wrestling training montages to appearances by comics like Ron Funches. Holland and the film's director Maureen Bharoocha (SXSW 2020 Adam Yauch Hörnblowér Visionary directing Award nominee) joined us on I'm So Obsessed to discuss Golden Arm which comes out on April 30 in theaters and on digital.

‘The Game’ with ‘Happiest Season’ Co-Writer and Actor Mary Holland
We are joined this week by the lovely Mary Holland. She is an actor and writer, who can most recently be seen in Happiest Season, a film that she co-wrote with director Clea DuVall. Mary’s on the show to talk about a movie that is nothing like Happiest Season at all, and that would be David Fincher’s mystery-thriller, The Game. Mary is an admitted fan of “games and escape rooms,” so it makes sense she gravitates towards this film. She and April go in-depth on the writing of Mary’s latest feature. She talks about how the script naturally changes when the film is cast, and how Mary Steenburgen breathed a different life into her role than was originally written. Mary also talks about her acting craft, the difficulty of shooting movies out of order, and the exhausting process of shooting “table scenes.” And lastly, she discusses the emotional “revelation scene” in Happiest Season, and how Kristen Stewart, Mackenzie Davis, and everyone involved had to really gear themselves up for shooting it.You can see Happiest Season on Hulu now.Please check out storyblocks.com/SWITCHBLADEAlso, please consider financially supporting our show by becoming a Maximum Fun member at Maximumfun.org/joinIf you haven’t seen The Game – it’s fun!With April Wolfe and Mary Holland.

And be sure to watch Mary's new movie, Happiest Season, out today on Hulu. This week Doree and Kate are joined by the very funny actor and writer Mary Holland, who can be seen on shows like Veep and Blunt Talk, and performing with her all-women improv group Wild Horses. She talks to Kate and Doree about how sleep is her own personal form of self-care, the healing power of Sex and the City, the satisfaction of a good, long, cry, and being mistaken for Bill Hader. Doree and Kate also go deep on sleep, breaking down the steps they take to wind down before bedtime. Plus they do another high/low product review, which includes one very expensive Tom Ford lipstick (color: Devore) and some not-so-expensive things too.To leave a voicemail or text for a future episode, reach us at 781-591-0390.
