182: You can't rub Ben-Gay on a heartache. | Calendar Girl (1993)

Episode Summary

"Nothing happens if you don't show up."

Episode Notes

Since Charles has been waiting 30 years to see this film I had fairly reasonable expectations. Thankfully this film you can find on YouTube, but that's about the only place you'll see it. You would think in 1993 a film starring Jason Priestley of 90210 fame involving a road trip to Hollywood would be a smash. Welp, that didn't happen. 

Most of the time we had no idea what was going on, but we examined this one with today's lens and yikes. We get into why Jerry O'Connell plays the same role over and over, the 60s clothes, and the weirdness of Hollywood 'stalking' Marilyn Monroe in media.

Off-topic rants include: Big Brother and The Challenge, Alessandro Nivola, Glen Powell's time to shine, and movies we wanted to walk out of.
