“A great listen for movie fans…”
The New York Times

“The Internet is studded with geeks mocking bad movies from the safety of their podcasts, but The Flop House might just be the best of the bunch.”
The Onion A.V. Club

“Daily Show writers dissecting awful movies? How can that not appeal? Each week Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy and Stuart Wellington take apart cinema’s very worst, from action clunker Battleship to despairingly unfunny John Travolta-Robin Williams comedy Old Dogs.”
–The Guardian

Pick – Slate “25 Best Podcast Episodes Ever” – “Why are there so many podcasts dedicated to talking about bad movies? Is it because teenagers who loved Mystery Science Theater 3000 reached adulthood just as podcasting arrived? Whatever the reason, the best of them is The Flop House, hosted by two Daily Show writers, Elliott Kalan and Dan McCoy, and fellow comedian Stuart Wellington. The three have a silly, improv-informed approach that suits well the idiocy they have generally just witnessed; many of their best moments come in ridiculous riffs that have nothing to do with the movie under discussion”

“…if you’ve ever begrudged the price of a DVD or a ticket after seeing the movie — The Flop House is right for you. Dan, Elliott, and Stuart will avenge your wasted time and money.”
–The Huffington Post

“The Flop House has grown to command a large audience.”
–BBC.com
