Have you ever liked something but found it difficult to get someone else to understand why? Do you quote films and get nothing in return from the people around you? There was a time in film history where films were all about quotes and much stupidity.. in this podcast we try to understand those films and that era.
This is the End: A Movie That Almost Destroys Isaac
Any good podcast challenge will have ups and downs, and this week we face a film that almost destroyed us.

It's Over, Get a New Show: Forgetting Sarah Marshall
If you’ve ever ran off to a tropical destination to forget about a break-up, or if you’ve surfed with a pop legend, or perhaps you’ve written rock musical with puppets: no matter who you are, Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) probably has something for you. Which is why we take extra long this time to dissect or rather — explain - why we enjoy or don’t enjoy aspects of this motion picture.
Zoolander: The Secret Underground World of Male Models
Have you ever struggled to go left? Or worked in a coal mine dreaming of a career in modelling? Does the song RELAX (Don’t Do it) make you feel funny?

Old School: Man Codes and Zoning Regulations
Any grown up out there can tell you, the Real Estate game is techerous. Especially when your now house gets rezoned as being on a college campus and your friends force you to start an almost fully inclusive fraternity. But does this concept, more than 15 years later, still hold up? Can we explain the film that is and was Old School? Isaac and Mark will try, and by the end, we all might just be going streaking through the quad.
No Commercials, No Mercy: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Bob Dylan once wrote “The times they are a changin”, but Isaac and Mark never heard that song... so they watched Anchorman instead.

But after so many years, quotes and a questionable sequel, does this film still fit like a new suit, or is it more like milk on a hot day? Join us for another episode of Ice Ice podcast, and find out.
