Ep. #21-Caddyshack II

On this week’s episode, the shack is back and–spoiler alert!–it’s whack! We discuss 1988’s much-maligned comedy sequel CADDYSHACK II, a movie so bad that co-host Luke literally fled the country to avoid it. Sucker. Who would want to miss seeing a talking, wine-swilling gopher puppet? So if you ever thought, “Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if they took all the dirty stuff out of Caddyshack and made it family-friendly?” then this is the film for you!

Ep. #20-Hot Rod

On this week’s episode, we discuss The Lonely Island’s first feature film, 2007’s cult comedy HOT ROD. And by discuss, I mean we endlessly quote lines from it and laugh hysterically. So if that’s what you’re into, cool beans!

Ep. #19-Good Time

On this week’s episode, we head back to the movie theater for 2017’s GOOD TIME, starring Robert Pattinson as a low-level criminal who will do anything to save his incarcerated younger brother. Underage make-out sessions, Sprite bottles of acid, bags of money, and BDSM-inspired amusement park rides all play crucial roles in the most realistic and unsettling thriller to hit suburban multiplexes in ages. WARNING! THIS EPISODE CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS!!

Ep. #18-Crank

On this week’s episode, we take an adrenaline shot straight to the heart with 2006’s bonkers action extravaganza CRANK, starring the one-and-only Jason Statham. We’ve got 90 minutes to determine if it’s pure genius or an offensive headache, and these Red Bulls and nasal sprays will only last for so long. Buckle up and enjoy!

Ep. #17-Whispers in the Dark

On this week’s episode, things get steamy with 1992’s “erotic” thriller WHISPERS IN THE DARK, a film whose idea of sexy is having respected actors like Alan Alda spout such choice dialogue as, “You probably had a spontaneous emission right in your blue jeans.” And it only gets grosser from there.

Ep. #16-From Justin To Kelly

On this week’s episode, we tackle 2003’s infamous American Idol musical romance FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY, A.K.A. CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATION: THE MOVIE. Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini prove to be about as sexy as a case of chlamydia on spring break, while the musical numbers make one yearn for the complexity of a junior high school talent show. And those are the positives. Who says what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? Oh, wait…

Ep. #15-Bullies

On this week’s episode, we head all the way back to 1986 and take a look at the long-forgotten teen thriller BULLIES, in which a backwoods hick family terrorizes some wussy big city folk. Somehow dirtbikes, bear traps, and borderline-magical Native Americans make their way into the proceedings, but really, everything you need to know about this film can be found by looking at the photos on its IMDb page. It’s hotter than tight ski pants in July in here!

Ep #14-Lords of Dogtown

On this week’s episode, we grind (well, not sexually) on 2005’s LORDS OF DOGTOWN, a skateboarding flick for the Pac Sun crowd that certainly lives up to the “dog” in its title. Brain tumors, Emile Hirsch as a Latino gangster, Heath Ledger with big fake teeth, uncomfortable brother/sister relationships, and Sofia Vergara’s breasts surprisingly all make appearances here, resulting in a totally gnarly takedown, bro.

Ep. #13-Steel

It was inevitable. On this week’s episode, we discuss 1997’s infamous comic book adaptation STEEL, starring beloved character actor Shaquille O’Neal and a woman in a laser beam-shooting, rocket-fueled wheelchair. Yeah, we couldn’t make this stuff up even if we wanted. Cue the free throw jokes!

Ep. #12-Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

On this week’s episode, we examine 2015’s Sundance award-winning ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL, an indie dramedy that is unbelievably even more twee than its title. Can genuine emotion escape the self-satisfied dialogue and quirky characterization? And can someone please turn down the damn Lou Reed?!
