There are some serious spoilers for those moments though so watch the movie, then come back and give our podcast a listen if you’re so inclined.

Tom Cruise has a problem. His imported car flipping business is failing and he just found out that he has a secret brother who is an autistic savant. But those aren’t his problems.
