Ep. #122-Buddy

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?

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!
