Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
Presumably, enough aging ladies of "the Greatest Generation" had a ball working out with Debbie Reynolds and her pals (including Teri Garr, Florence Henderson, Dionne Warwick, Virginia Mayo, Rose Marie et al) using Mrs. Reynolds' first workout video, "Do It Debbie's Way", that they cranked out another one: this video. This time, the premise is that working out is a great activity for couples to do together, hence the title. Along for the ride this time are Tom Bosley and Dick Van Patten, as well as their wives, Patricia Carr Bosley and Pat Van Patten, and Debbie's own husband, the visibly discomforted Richard Hamlett. There's really nothing much here aside from grunting sextegenarians sweating to the oldies while doing a rather low-impact exercise regimen. Debbie keeps up an incessant and maddening monologue throughout, rarely interrupted save for the occasional protest from Tom Bosley or Dick Van Patten that their back is giving out. The only possible audience I can see for this nowadays would be grannie fetishists who have a thing for Mrs. Reynolds.
