Episode 171 - HAPPY GILMORE


The Summer of Sandler strokes back with the cross-training classic Happy Gilmore. It's a film that helped solidify the Sandman's reputation as a sophomoric softie with a predilection for helping little old ladies and a knack for getting humiliated by cameo-ing celebrities. And not only that, it might've turned a generation of slackers into weekend hackers, and helped transform golf culture as we know it.

Jim Gallivan joins us for his first round of WWWW as we tee up all our favorite lines, and find out if Happy's sense of humor is still up to par...jackass!

Directed by Dennis Dugan
Produced by Robert Simonds
Written by Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler
Starring Adam Sandler, Julie Bowen, Christopher McDonald, Frances Bay, Kevin Nealon, Allen Covert, Joe Flaherty, Richard Kiel, and Carl Weathers

Episode 170 - TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE


Marionette might makes right in the raunchy puppet satire Team America: World Police, which takes aim at big-budget action clich├ęs, Hollywood pomposity, and post-9/11 geopolitics. It's an indiscriminately edgy film that packs all the subtlety of a sledgehammer, yet also stands as a showcase of painstaking production design and visual effects. For this movie, commitment is clearly not a problem.

Andrew McNally has the I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E. to guide us through some complex feelings about America, South Park, and cinematic provocations in this special 4th of July blowout. Fuck Yeah!
