“Collision Course” (1989) was an attempt to capitalize on the matinée idol, Jay Leno and teen heart-throb, Pat Morita. Jim Wise (writer “Mad TV,” “Tonight Show With Jay Leno”) recaps with me this cop movie disaster.
Jim also talks about the Denzel Washington copflop “Ricochet.”
Plot of Collision Course: A Japanese investigator (Morita) and a Detroit cop (Leno) team up to track down a stolen prototype turbocharger.

Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin and Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam take over a 70’s American morning show to promote their movie, “The Holly Grail.” (Starts about 1 minute in) They are the “co-hosts” for the hour. They try to read prompter and by the end of they are tearing the studio up.
The host seems to be having fun. The late Peter Jennings is having none of it. He seems pretty annoyed. Maybe because Chapman sneaks a middle finger on air.
There’s also an extra long clip from the movie.
The end credits play straight while the Python guys are tearing apart the set and attacking the host.

The “Groundlings” lead Jim Wise to a part in “Showgirls” witnessing director Paul Verhoeven and Elizabeth Berkley on set romance, a private Hollywood “Showgirls” screening with Kyle MacLachlan and a command performance for the OJ Simpson jury with Will Ferrell.
Jim Wise is a singer, actor and a writer known for his role as Coach Tugnut in Even Stevens (2000), Kenny the Psychopath in Just Shoot Me (1998), Saturday Night Live (1975), MADtv (1995) and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992) and I met him working at Arsenio Hall (2014). He’s the voice of the Goofy Goober Rock Singer featured in the SpongeBob Squarepants Movie (2004). And, he is perhaps best known for being in scenes deleted from Will Ferrell movies.
Sean Conroy (“The Long Shot Podcast,” writer “Mr. Pickles”) and I talk about the #1 movie of the weekend, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” It’s filled with spoilers and mispronunciation. Listen to me call “apes,” “monkeys.”
Sean and I know each other from our stand up days in the go-go 90’s. Please vote on the over under on when Sean Conroy will buy my first child a gift. The over/under is two years.

Attention TV police cadets – I am a veteran TV cop show watcher. I have se en things you can only imagine. After years of watching the force here’s what every good TV cop does.
1) React very strongly to kid cases – All cases of murder are horrible, but if it involves children you have to get extra angry and take it personal. “Damn it!” “It’s just not fair.” (Kick desk or punch a file cabinet.)
2) (The Guy from) “The Butler” did it. The bigger the guest actor, the more likely they did it. Adam Arkin isn’t doing a guest spot to just to be cleared of all charges. Arkin wants a perp walk! If you meet a suspect and think, “Was that guy on that show with that lady?” – then you got your murderer. This is mostly for cops on the “Law & Order” beat. READ MORE »
Bonus clips from interviews of Orlando Jones, filmmaker Jeremy Sklar and Nicko. Also Andres Du Bouchet (“Conan” writer) and Adam Felber (“Wait…Wait Don’t Tell Me”) have a new “Ain’t Everything Cool dot Yes.”
Bad Film Club’s Nicko joins me in reviewing “Batman & Robin.” It’s another #Podcrawl and this time we get stuck with the worst of the worst. This film is the fourth in the line of Batman movies that fans went to because they thought they had no choice.
It’s out of hand. All I know is that I couldn’t stop playing with my cats. It’s the most unprofessional episode ever. Ever. Totes.
