"Good Will Hunting" won the Best of Matt Damon category among Shat The Movies, and we can see why. Damon didn't just star in the movie, he co-wrote it with Ben Affleck when the two were just a couple of fresh-faced actors.

This ode to Boston showed us Robin Williams' dramatic side, which we later realized was tragic foreshadowing, and it introduced us to a young Casey Affleck before his sexual harassment scandal.

To Kerri Gross, "Good Will Hunting" is a moving emotional journey. To Dick Ebert, it's the greatest film Shat The Movies has ever reviewed. To Gene Lyons, it's a brilliant collection of improvised scenes that he predictably wishes were darker.

Other topics covered in this episode of Shat The Movies:

  • Minnie Driver's gigantic Lego head
  • Harvey Weinstein's keen eye for gay scenes
  • Matt Damon's idiot ex-girlfriend and her taste in metal drummers
  • Gene's failure to ever love the way Kerri can
  • the best crying scenes in '90s cinema
