Episode Twelve: Awake

Jessica Alba and Hayden Christensen apply all of their Flop House star power to Awake, a strangely sedate thriller about a man who spends much of the movie paralyzed. Then dead. But don’t worry; it has a happy ending. Meanwhile, Elliott takes our very first caller, Dan admires the bravery of Sean Connery’s Medicine Man, and Stu introduces the review sensation that’s sweeping the nation.
