Wife begged me to go see this in theaters last year, so we went. I was under the impression it was going to be a Nicholas Sparks-esque romance, so I went in not knowing a thing about it.
I think I ended up loving it more than she did. The end sequence with the father had me doing the tough guy ...

I think Jason Jones would be a nice replacement. He's been with them since 2005 and is still only 41 years old. He hosted back in October while Stewart was out. His pieces are generally very entertaining.
I think he also does sitcom work and stuff too, so I'm not sure if he'd want to take on t...
