The Flop House: Episode #46 – Obsessed

How can an erotic thriller with horrible racial politics, starring BeyoncĂ© Knowles, be what founding Flop House co-host Simon Fisher would call “a real snore factory?” Who knows, but somehow they managed it. Meanwhile, Stuart reveals a surprising fact about sex in public bathrooms, Elliott explains how BeyoncĂ© is like a Looney Tunes character, and Dan decries the film’s no-fault attitude to the sexual assault of Idris Elba.
