We’re doing four Guy Comedies in April:
Apr. 3: Weekend at Bernie’s
Apr. 10: Dodgeball
Apr. 17: The Hangover
Apr. 23: Hot Tub Time Machine
Evidently there are several versions of some of these, so we’ll get back to you on that, but we’ll probably be doing the version Netflix is streaming. If Netflix is streaming more than one version . . . we’ll get back to you.

I know it’s far too late to get entered into the poll, but I just watched Hot Fuzz again the other day, and I think it is actually a perfect movie. Definitely in the bromance genre. Pretty please will you guys review it one day? 🙂
I LOVE Hot Fuzz. Lani’s not sure, but she loves Shaun of the Dead so I can talk her into giving it another shot. (She’s not a fan of gore and there’s some really cringe-worthy death in that.) Maybe we should do a month of Bromance? Or just four buddy-cop pictures. 48 Hours was really good as I remember.
Ooooh, if you do buddy-cop movies, does that mean we can watch a Lethal Weapon movie? I know Mel Gibson has gone insane, but I still really enjoy those movies.
Yay for buddy cop/bromance movies!
Wow, by the end of April I will likely be completely embarrassed to be a man.
Keith, you brag about your cow. Being a man is not your first level of concern.
Also we just did nine months of chick flicks, many of which were abysmal and made women look like idiots; you can survive four dick flicks, at least two of which are good. Plus The Killers pretty much embarrasses both genders, although I’ll give Ashton a pass on that one.
I concede your points. My cow declines to comment.
I like the idea of buddy/cop movies, though maybe stay away from Rush Hour. If you decide to do that, Hot Fuzz would be perfect as a parody that becomes what is parodies. We could even watch some of the movies that directly influenced it, like Point Break (which I’ve never seen).
Also (& off topic), yesterday I got an ad for Born Yesterday on Broadway & just now, the movie was a clue on Jeopardy. I never even heard of it before PopD & now it’s cropped up two days in a row. 🙂
It’s a classic. It was actually a Broadway hit first, and then they made it into a movie, so it’s just returning to its roots.
OT – sorry – The only good thing about Rush Hour is that it brought Jackie Chan to the attention of most of America. So many better Jackie Chan movies out there, including Rumble in the Bronx [which is available on Netflix Streaming]. But the best stunt is in “Who Am I?” when he slides down the outside of a building in Copenhagen or someplace like that. Just amazing!
Hot Fuzz is awesome!!! Love it! Showtime is another cop/buddy movie (Eddie Murphy, Robert De Niro, Rene Russo) that I liked a lot….. Have you guys ever thought of doing remakes? (His Girl Friday(I know you’ve already watched this one)/Switching Channels, Dial M for Murder/Perfect Murder)
We were talking about Strangers on a Train/Throw Momma from the Train and Cactus Flower and the Aniston-Sandler remake. Not sure we can do double-features; by the time we watch one movie and then do the podcast, we crash.
Off topic, sorry, but I would like to suggest In and Out with Kevin Cline. It’s one if my favorites. Also, Elizabethtown. I just watched it to other night and I really like it. It didn’t do well at the box office but I don’t think that’s a good judge of what’s good.
@ Jenny – I bet! You guys definitely carry the weight for us – I’ve got to tell you how helpful these podcasts have been with my writing. I love that I’m becoming a less passive viewer – though I think I might be annoying friends who still just watch movies and are happy with ‘it was good’ or ‘it was okay’ as an answer to ‘how was the movie’.
@ Dayner – Both of those are good movies – Elizabethtown I liked better the second time I saw it – but that was after I took a class where we made artist books – so that could have been why…
Yvonne, I’m so glad the podcasts are a help. We were thinking that even the bad movies were good because we learned so much, but after The Baker, I’m thinking no. The only thing I learned from that was not to watch The Baker again.
ha! : )
