Soggy Bottom USA might imply you’ll wet your pants watching this swampy comedy. Or, not. This moonshinin', dog-racin', country-singin', fur-tradin', boat-buildin' crime/con/love story explores the moviemaking sin of becoming so 'bogged' down with subplot, its real purpose becomes murkier than a steamin' dog fart (which is actually a highlight). Come on, y'all--hear our best review yet!

Never grow old. Never die. But you must feed, Michael. This Peter Pan-inspired vampire flick from 1987 does the impossible - makes the 80's look cool and bloodsucking cooler. We stick our necks out to critique The Lost Boys and invite you to sink your teeth into our flesh... err, podcast.

Richard Pryor (after the fire) is a pitcher who can get 10x richer if he spends 30mil whilst revealing nil, leaving nothing to his name at the end of this one-month inheritance game. Is this high stakes remake worth a second take... or just a head shake?

The Friday the 13th producer made this much tamer murder mystery about a group of friends spending a scary night in an old house on an island. It begs the question: does April Fool's Day put the laughter in slaughter? Or is it just a joke?

Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo follows a man so obsessed with bringing Opera to the Amazon he enlists natives to carry a steamboat across land. Burden of Dreams is the documentary that follows Werner Herzog, a man so obsessed with filming a movie in the Amazon he enlists natives to carry a steamboat across land. Insanity ensues, but should we look away?

Can't Hardly Wait for this episode.

Dolly Parton steals scene after scene from Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in this revenge comedy about three women getting even with their misogynistic boss. Do jokes about inequality still ring true? And does anyone really work 9 to 5 in this new economy? Punch in for the punchline.

A demure mimic sounds golden to sleazy star-maker, Michael Caine when he hears the pitch-perfect imitation of her late father's favorite songbirds (Ella, Judy, Marlene, Marilyn, Shirley). Little Voice's motormouth mom, under his sugar-tongued spell, dreams of riches, romance and rescue... in no particularly order. This sleeper comedy earned more awards nominations than money but is it still worth singing its praises?

After a prison breakout, two laugh-out-loud cops stakeout the knockout that the bad guy used to take out. Detective Richard Dreyfus falls for the girl at the local checkout, they hang out, cookout and make out until said bad buy pops out for a punch-out. Turn out to see how Stakeout shakes out.

Rushed to the screen (just behind rival flick, Breakin') to capitalize on the breakdancing fad, this forgotten flick captures the birth of hip hop like no other. Do the Robot, beatbox and graffiti deserve a remix? Put on some old school headphones and hear us spin.

Four thieves steal diamonds as a team but when it comes to dividing the loot, double crosses abound in John Cleese's comedy. This forgotten award-winning film is clever, nearly farcical, just don't call it s-s-stupid. Steal some time to tune in!

This Peter Fonda, Warren Oates vehicle is literally a 36 ft camper. It's also a front runner for the horror on wheels genre. There's no devil, but a bunch of ne'er-do-well Texan Satanists armed with rattlesnakes chasing our heroes... why wouldn't you want to watch this?

Jim Carrey stars as The Cable Guy who tries too hard to make friends with a customer (Matthew Broderick, again!) and things go haywire. This Ben Stiller comedy was too dark for 90's critics but what about today's audiences? Lighten up and listen... "no big deeeeeeeal."

Do you like movies about gladiators? You ever seen a grown man naked? Have you ever been in a Turkish prison? No, not Airplane... Billy Hayes' autobiographical* Midnight Express proves one should "never let the truth get in the way of a good story." Oliver Stone's award-winning screenwriting debut destroyed Turkish tourism; is it still worth it?

An average guy (Bill Paxton) and two underachievers (Billy Bob Thornton & friend) come across four million "lost" dollars in the woods and agree to a plan to keep it. Bad decisions abound in this viscerally uncomfortable thriller. Does an Oscar-nominated performance elevate its rewatchability, or is it still just a guilty pleasure?
