My big bro Mike Spiegelman insist we watch the biggest mistake in Whoopi Goldberg’s career and she named herself “Whoopi Goldberg.” “Theodore Rex” is a kid’s film with bad dinosaur costumes and shoot outs.
It’s the future – and Whoopi is a cop with a dinosaur partner. What else do you need? Plot, jokes, production value? Naw.
From Wikipedia –
Though Whoopi Goldberg had made a verbal agreement to star in the film in October 1992 she attempted to back out. Abramson filed a $20 million lawsuit against Goldberg, which they settled very quickly. Goldberg agreed to star in the film for $7 million, ]$2 million more than the originally agreed-upon amount.
One of the attorneys on the case described this as being similar to the legal battle of Kim Basinger when she backed out of the film Boxing Helena.
When asked if he would be in “Iron Man 4″ Sir Ben Kingsley recounted a conversation he had with the character he played. Sir Ben did both his voice and Trevor’s (The Mandarin).
Sir Ben Kingsley chose acting and has starred in virtually every genre of film, including the superhero world playing the Mandarin in “Iron Man 3″. Sir Ben has hinted that his character might even make a return in the next movie.
“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.
1994’s “The Fantastic Four” was hidden. Listen to the inside scoop on the infamous Roger Corman “Fantastic Four.” It was a movie no one was supposed to see. The prints were burned. Who leaked it? Why would a company want to make a movie just to shelve it? Chris Gore was the editor of “Film Threat” magazine. He did a cover story about the production – not knowing the film was doomed. DOOMED! Chris give his insight on this blockbuster bootleg. Everything you ever wanted (or not wanted) to know about the early ’90s feature film. Gore is a movie/comic book nut. So he goes off on fun tagents about all things nerdy. Luckily for us, being nerdy is in now.

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.
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.”
We talk about the incredible CGI, the interesting plot and the old school sexism.
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 »
