"The Wolf of Wall Street and 2013 Re-cap" is the fifth episode of the fourth season of film review web series Half in the Bag, and 64th episode in the series overall. The episode aired January 2, 2014 on Blip.[1][2] The episode is a recap of select 2013 releases not covered in the previous episodes.

In this episode, Mr. Plinkett tries to have a heart attack in order to get life-saving surgery, and Mike and Jay discuss Martin Scorcese’s 2013 comedy The Wolf of Wall Street and other films they saw in 2013.

PlotEdit

Desperate to get life-saving coronary angioplasty before his health insurance expires, Mr. Plinkett decides to induce a heart attack by eating 37 double-bacon cheeseburgers. Before embarking on his feast of self-destruction, Plinkett makes Mike and Jay promise to call 911 once he has his heart attack. Disgusted by Plinkett’s eating, Mike and Jay distract themselves by talking about The Wolf of Wall Street and other 2013 films.

Afterwards, they find a letter from Plinkett’s lawyer, informing them that the City of Milwaukee has decided to settle with Plinkett. Their excitement fades when they discover that Plinkett died of a heart attack sometime during their movie discussion.
