Transcript for New proposed Netflix rating system sparks controversy
Welcome back. Time for our big board and we have Larry Hackett and sunny Hostin at the table with us. We'll begin with that Netflix news. The video streaming service swapping its current five-star rating system for a simple thumb's up or thumb's down approach. The change set to happen next month but has binge-watchers all fired up, Larry. Tell us why. Well, they say they've done a test and that they had a 200% increase in the number of people that participated and say the stars think people don't like it and act like movie critics with a thumb's up, thumb's down working better. Amy Schumer had a new leather special and right wing trolls got involved in this thing and they forced one-star reviews on to the site. Driving the reviews down. She has called out the controversy and thanked them for the help and calls into question the validity of the star system. This is against this backdrop and net flick thinks more will participate and they want them to do thumb's up, thumb's down so they can send you what you like. This is thought about reviews for critic purposes but to say I like this, I don't like this. Send me more of the same. But then why are Netflix customers upset? Those are complaining do want to be movie critics and want to make a distinction between a 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 star. Siskel and Ebert had thumb's up and thumb's down but they talked about it beforehand. It's more like my Spotify. Send you more of what you like so that makes a lot of sense. Do you think this will change viewing habit. It will make it more narrow casting. Some want to wander around. If you keep saying thumb's up, thumb's down you may get more of what you like. Let's test it. Thumb's up or thumb's down for Netflix's new system. I like to chat so I'll give it a down. You're jut numbered -- Amy is not up or down. I'm never going to rate anything so I don't care. Just being honest. All right. Thank you Larry. Now we go to a lavish wedding and a big lawsuit. Minc Mindy Weiss is known as a wedding plan for for Ellen DeGeneres and a family accuses to pay, she says. They're holding the wedding video hostage. Give us the take. Look, to be sure this was a lavish wedding. One ceremony in southampton. Another system in France, in fact "Bride's" magazine says this will blow you away. Who got blown away was the parents of the bride would paid for it. Saying, listen, she went on this unauthorized spending spree. She is saying the wedding planner, no, I just got stiffed $340,000 for expenses that I paid but check out the expenses. $45,000 for staff. $48,000 for travel. $38,000 for lighting. That must be some lighting. Lighting? $10,000 for the videographer. Check out the wedding favor, $4300 for totes, $5,000 for t-shirts and all important hangover pouches cost $1,000. Does the wedding planner have a case. Aren't there contracts. There are contracts and that's the dispositive factor. She had no authority to enter into any of these contracts on their behalf. She is saying but there was some side verbal agreements and that's what I was -- Isn't that tough to prove. Very difficult to prove. I think her case is going to be Sha shaky. Look at the pictures. I can solve it. Sell them to a magazine. Who is not going to want to see this wedding. Or elope. Do you think they'll get air videotape, though? That's the big question That's the big question. I never got my video from my wedding. No? I hope they will get it. That's important. You had a situation like this. I had a little bit of a situation. You've been through it. We're watching this right now. This family is going through it. What can you do to avoid it. I think everything has to be in writing. Everything has to be spelled out and agree on a budget, people. Agree on a budget. All right. Sunny. Stick to it. I know, stick to it. It's 20 years now. I'm never getting my video. It's right here. Coming up, Kim Kardashian is
