Sure, he’s starred in films by Tarantino and Scorsese, but what Harvey Keitel REALLY wanted to do was appear in a slapstick crime comedy playing second fiddle to middle-aged Korean man-child. Meanwhile, our guest Al Madrigal talks about literally filling Christian Slater’s shoes, Dan discusses the country’s wealth disparity vis-a-vis rest stop DVDs, and Elliott expands upon his encyclopedic knowledge of late night Cinemax fare.

NO WIKIPEDIA SYNOPSIS EXISTS
Flop House Plugs Corner
We were remiss in giving out clues to the next movie to be featured in one of our Flop House live events (produced and co-hosted by the good folks at I Love Bad Movies) but the cat’s out of the bag — we will be screening the 1986 James Remar non-hit QUIET COOL at 92Y Tribeca on Friday, June 8 at 8 pm, on the great island of Manhattan.

The synopsis and poster doesn’t do it justice. It’s awful, but bizzare in its awfulness and not just a run of the mill romcom.
