Director Sophia Coppola's sophomore release, the moody "Lost in Translation," starring Bill Murray, is a rumination on ennui. But it's funny. And it's romantic.

So it's a rom-com ... right?

In this episode, Mike and Brian explore the choices that make this movie so hard to categorize. They question what can be learned from the empathy we extend to characters in film vs. real people in real life, talk best moments and trivia, then decide whether to keep or kick this title from the top five of 2003.
