Producer Luc Besson and director McG made a bet about the number of tones they could cram into 3 Days to Kill, and the audience lost. Meanwhile Elliott does his classic “2000 Year-Old Killer” routine, Dan gets more inappropriately sexual than ever before, Stu introduces the concept of a “neck baby,” and TVs Jessica Williams stops by, because why the heck not?

Wikipedia synopsis for 3 Days to Kill
Movies recommended in this episode:
They Came Together
The Sea Wolf
Soooo….underwater sex. Anyone tried it?
Pretty sure Elliott Kalan got it wrong just this once. Fred Flintstone’s boss Mr. Slate’s daughter’s name isn’t Jenny, it’s Concretia. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109813/quotes?item=qt0444708
Probably not as bad as Brad Pitt in “World War Z,” but also kind of funny listening to podcast knocking scarfs when there is picture of Stuart Wellington wearing a scarf right there on the side.
Great episode 🙂
Arg! This movie. As soon as my friend and I saw “McG”, we knew what we were in for. I hated that this movie didn’t even follow it’s own rules with the heartrate/hallucination conflict, the CIA broad who was at almost every action scene and could have been doing the job herself. Why dis she need Costner so badly? The bad guys who are trying to be inconspicuous yet are blasting off in public AND a prom??? Plus the Wolf could have easily been the boyfriend’s father which would have added a much needed layer to the character. Who brings their business partner to their son’s prom???
I was MUCH more interested in the father/daughter story than the CIA action and the only fun moment was the Italian recipe scene.
Costner was ok, but screw this movie.
Besson has NO idea how to write women.
Just listened to your podcast. The three of you are really quite hysterical. I did enjoy it, I mean your podcast, not the movie. I mean really, what could expect from the combination of Costner and McG. After “The Postman” can anyone take Costner seriously. And McG, films are not prolonged music videos and I really hope he is not the heir apparent to John Frankenheimer.
