My Dinner With Andre
Hang on, how exactly are we watching these TV shows while stranded on a desert island? Is this a desert island with electricity? I mean, even if you had a fully charged, working laptop with a DVD drive, I hope you remembered your solar panel charger, or pretty soon you’re just gonna be reading the text on that boxed set over and over until you go nuts.
Am I doing this wrong?
Wasn’t Peter Fonda’s character named “Wyatt” in the original? Virgil, Morgan and Wyatt were the names of the Earp brothers of OK Corral fame.
Elliott referenced “It’s not the coffee, it’s the bunk.” Wow. Just wow. If you weren’t already married….
Ooohh… a Flophouse recommendation from revered flop movie reviewer Nathan Rabin. You should take his suggestions more often… though if you ever discover his review of “Bratz”, I fear that you floppers shall become his most bitter enemies….
Based on your discussion in this week’ podcast— Idea for serial killer who trolls bars for victims: “Bloody Murray”.
Keep up the good work. Thanks
Unless I am confused I think we got the shaft on hearing the “best line of the movie” spoken by the pirate bartender. While I truly loved the store credit at a bar tangent, I felt robbed of the best line!!
Just wanted to chime in here and mention that “How Did This Get Made” is doing this movie for their next episode. Seems kind of lame that they chose the same movie that you just did?
Maybe, but We Hate Movies covered this one before the Flop House.
