Episode 60 – All About Steve

Since Dan is gone this weekend at a wedding, Flopsmas is coming early this year! Enjoy a rare Thursday-posted episode!

We’ll say this for Sandra Bullock – she throws herself into every role, even the ones she shouldn’t, like the lead in All About Steve. Meanwhile, Brock makes a plea for simple job competence, Dan questions the film’s view of the high-stakes crosswords world, and Stuart gives a recap lesson in cookery.

  1. Perhaps the low volume of comments on this site has something to do with Dan’s repeated broadcasting of the incorrect website URL. (Twice, starting at 47:10 in this episode, FYI.) Hint: there’s no “the” in the hostname. (There’s also no “i” in the word “general,” but I digress…)

  2. Kate says:

    Aw, boo. I happen to love that movie, and think Sandra was adorable in it!

  3. Dan McCoy says:

    Kate, you have opened our eyes. Never again will we make fun of a Sandra Bullock romantic comedy… as long as it is loved by a cute female Flop House Fan.

    Yes. We can be bought.

  4. Christine says:

    My son is Autistic. He is incredibly intelligent, generous and kind. He has a crippling fear of people and it takes tremendous courage for him to go to his job at Kent State University five days a week. Thousands of men, women and children suffer from this condition in varying degrees. Stuart, thousands of people listen to you at the Flop House Podcast everyday. Please encourage your fans to be understanding of Autistic people and to show them some compassion and, yes, maybe even a helping hand. Thank you.
