This week, we take on 1997’s extremely bizarre true-life tale BUDDY, directed by Caroline Thompson. Rene Russo plays an animal-loving socialite who accepts a gorilla into her home. Once grown, she dresses it in a three-piece suit and basically forces it to become her servant, in a move co-host Luke describes as “a stunning critique on capitalism and the class system.” A horror film posing as family entertainment, there is much to discuss here, including rollerskate-wearing chimps and Buddy’s love of lipstick and lingerie. Did we mention this movie is bizarre?
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!
