Dawn-of-the-Planet-of-the-Apes1Sean 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.”

“Cheerleader Ninjas”

“Cheerleader Ninjas”

“Cheerleader Ninjas” is a spoof film that falls short. Playwright Robert Matsushita crosses over from his podcast to talk about this clunker.

It’s a spoof movie with a couple of legit laughs. But it’s all over the place.

A couple of people (Art Wheeler mostly) accidentally watched “Cheerleader Ninjas” instead of “Ninja Cheerleaders.” So this is a make up show.

Was “Mrs. Doubtfire” Really a Horror Film?

Was “Mrs. Doubtfire” Really a Horror Film?

The late Robin Williams in one of his most famous “funny help” roles.

College Humor’s Hallie Cantor deconstructs the cross dressing stalker-com“Mrs. Doubtfire.”  Hallie wrote “8 Things That Still Bother Me About Mrs. Doubtfire.”

The first thing about the movie is it’s impossible to find. No one streams it. You can buy the DVD on Amazon.

The other thing is it’s more like a Brian De Palma film than a ha ha ha film. Robin Williams plays a man who dresses in disguise to steal time with his kids and keep an eye on his ex. SPOOKY! Someone made a horror movie trailer. But he didn’t have to do much.

Ice-t as a Mule, Eric Roberts is a Cat. W/ Susie Felber and Her Kids

 Hugo (Age 6), Delia (Age 3 1/2) and their mom Susie Felber (Age ?) review “A Talking Cat!?!” & “Tommy the Cool Mule”. What more can I say? These kids are cute, opinionated and know a bad film when they see one.
Too often, bad talent is pushed off on kids. As if kids don’t notice trash. Susie showed her kids these movies without ever telling her
them the movies might not be good. The kids came to the conclusion that these films were trash.
