This week, celebrate the joys of both Christmas and New Year’s as we take on 1983’s TRADING PLACES, directed by John Landis and starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd. We take a deep dive into what is considered by many to be a comedy classic. How does it play in 2019 to two guys watching it for the very first time? We discuss everything from its racial politics to its portrayal of women to whether it not it actually made us laugh. We may be in the minority on this one.
On this week’s episode, we somehow manage to get even dumber than usual as we take on 1996’s family comedy THE STUPIDS, directed by John Landis(!). Tom Arnold stars Stanley Stupid, the patriarch of the world’s most simple-minded family. How stupid are they?!! Well, for starters, Tom Arnold is the patriarch. We kid! But what’s not funny is our guest’s obsession with Max Landis and certain indecent acts. May the Lloyd have mercy on our souls.
