On this week’s episode, we return to the never-ending well that is Shaquille O’Neal’s prosperous acting career and take on his first starring role: 1996’s KAZAAM, in which the NBA legend stars as a 5,000-year-old genie who is summoned from his boombox prison by an obnoxious tween punk to help the kid through his daddy issues. And, naturally, to rap. Meanwhile, there’s a music piracy subplot featuring beloved ’90’s musician Da Brat (whose very existence is called into question by our guest), rampant allusions to slavery, the graphic mastication of goat eyes, and finally, the murder of a child. So, you know, grab the kids for this family classic and enjoy!
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!
