Scott jokes in a stand-up performance that his dad saw The Revenant (2015) "and said, 'oh, I get it. I wanna fuck a bear.'" This is a reference to a widely discussed rumor, originating from a Drudge Report article published before the movie's release, that the film contained a scene in which Leonardo DiCaprio's character is raped by a bear, leading 20th Century Fox and DiCaprio to respond saying that there was no bear rape in the film, and that the scene in question depicted a female bear mauling him because she thought he was trying to harm her cubs.

Welcome back Billy, we missed you and you did not disappoint.
I'm not one who usually goes for the comedy/drama type movies, but I am so glad I sat down and watched this. There cannot be a human being alive that is unable to relate to something in this movie, in a personal way.
The acting was spot on, not too much or too little of anything. All the actors, fit just right. There's no hurrying the storyline, it just flows. I found myself relating and reflecting to so much of the story and it was a good feeling.
In short, you need to see this. Don't be in a hurry to do anything while you watch it. Take the 90 minutes and let yourself be whoever it is you relate to in this film. The ending tied everything together in a nice comfortable way.
Buy it, rent it, download it, whatever. Just watch it.
