    Though it was once a wholesome, family-oriented attraction, a water park owned by Chet (David Koechner) now features a nudist pool and aquatic strippers. Chet's daughter, a marine biologist named Maddy (Danielle Panabaker), is unhappy about the changes but is powerless to stop the grand reopening. However, when a school of ravenous, prehistoric piranha migrate over from nearby Lake Victoria, Maddy must somehow prevent the park's patrons from becoming fish food.

    Deep Impact (1998) w/ Colleen Haggerty

    Deep Impact (1998) w/ Colleen Haggerty

    This week we revisit the much-maligned (and misunderstood) "Deep Impact" with Colleen Haggerty (@colleenhagerty)




    A comet is hurtling toward Earth and could mean the end of all human life. The U.S. government keeps the crisis under wraps, but crack reporter Jenny Lerner (Tea Leoni) uncovers the truth -- forcing U.S. President Beck (Morgan Freeman) to announce his plan. Grizzled astronaut Spurgeon "Fish" Tanner (Robert Duvall) and his team will land on the comet and lay explosives, hopefully deterring the object from its doomsday course. If not, humanity will have to prepare for the worst.

Super Fun and cool

Disaster movies genre is interesting. I just love listening to the conversation and the deep dive into what the movie is really about. The fan casting is best part.

Stop talking about politics

Fantastic podcast, but it drops down to a four-star because they talk politics. Please let us just enjoy the movie and podcast for entertainment seek.
