    Ep 330 - Too Much Sun

    Ep 330 - Too Much Sun

    On this, the last episode of our Outrageously Bad Eric Idle Film Season (pause for audience's sigh of relief), we talk about Too Much Sun, a Robert Downey Sr. movie featuring the unlikely cast of Eric Idle, Leo Rossi, Ralph Macchio, Robert Downey Jr., James Hong, Andrea Martin and more.

    It's so awful I don't even want to describe it in this episode description. Suffice to say we are happy this particular podcast rabbit hole is over with and we can crawl out to face a brand new day.

    Ep 329 - Missing Pieces (with special guest Robert Wuhl)

    On this week's very special episode our intrepid hosts find out that not all movies in the Outrageously Bad Eric Idle film season are outrageously bad, even when Eric Idle himself might say they are.

    Jon Cross and Jim Wallace discuss long lost, rare comedy caper Missing Pieces from 1991 starring Eric Idle, Robert Wuhl, Leslie Jordan, Richard Belzer and Lauren Hutton.

    Jon also gets to talk to special guest Robert Wuhl all about the making of the film!

    Ep 328 - Splitting Heirs

    Ep 328 - Splitting Heirs

    In this, the second episode of the Outrageously Bad Eric Idle Film Season, Jim Wallace and Jon Cross take on the duality of Idle, the riddle of Splitting Heirs, the miscasting of everyone, the relentless Idle theme tunes, the insecurity, the laziness, the multitude of similarities between Splitting Heirs and A Fish Called Wanda, how we all start off wanting to be John Cleese and probably end up being Eric Idle and Jon's encounter with Eric Idle on Twitter!!

    it's a jam packed, laugh a minute, Idle-palooza!

    Ep 327 - A Wild & Weird New Year's Walken

    Ep 327 - A Wild & Weird New Year's Walken

    It's the show everyone waits for every year - it's our annual New Year's special.
    This time we're down to just Doc, Moe and myself as we discuss four weird and wild Christopher Walken movies:

    The Eternal,
    The Prophecy,
    The King of New York &
    Communion.

    There's all the usual banter and shenanigans along with talk of Irish accents, hair, cows, the old soft shoe, gingers, starring with Nicolas Cage in a Kramer Vs Kramer meets Rat Race type movie, a sequel to Fitzcarraldo and much much more.

    Ep 326 - An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn

    Ep 326 - An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn

    The After Movie Diner starts its perilous journey chronologically backwards through outrageously bad Eric Idle films bravely going where no other podcast thought it was at all reasonable or normal to go.

    This is the zenith of me getting some weird thrill out of being so "against the flow" that I torpedo my own show to cover obscure and unpleasant films featuring former Monty Python nudge nudger and Rutle, Eric Idle.

    To start of this catalogue of cringe and season of shite, we dive head first into the mire of madness that is Joe Eszterhas' unforgivably racist and sexist laugh vacuum An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn which stars a bunch of people who should be so ashamed of themselves, they should probably be publicly pelted with fruit: Sylvester Stallone, Whoopi Goldberg, Jackie Chan, Ryan O'Neal, Coolio, Sandra Bernhard, Chuck D and more!

    ENJOY!!

    Ep 325 - Dirty Knights' Work AKA Trial by Combat AKA A Choice of Weapons

    Ep 325 - Dirty Knights' Work AKA Trial by Combat AKA A Choice of Weapons

    This week, for the last of our Donald Pleasence films, we look at the under seen British class comedy, A Dirty Knight's Work - a bizarre but thoroughly English film about a bunch of wannabe toffs taking their dress up games a little too seriously.
    As the movie also stars Barbara Hershey, the conversation naturally turns to Splitting Heirs and Eric idle and a decision is made by your valiant hosts that may or may not end the podcast for good!

Screambag ,

Jim is a wild man!

The main host Jon Cross is fairly witty and brings a moderate amount of style and personality to this show, however his co-host Jim is simply just a WILDMAN! Completely uncontrollable and can only be described as “a human powder keg of ruckus and ferociousness waiting to explode at a moment’s notice”. Whether it’s his nonsensical ramblings and wild speculation about the motives behind a director’s misguided vision or his blatant disregard of Jon’s very reasonable opinion about such matters as Jim’s ugly bum face. WILDMAN Jim is known for invoking such remarks from Jon as “can we please talk about this bloody movie” and “I’m trying to introduce the bloody movie” and of course “I don’t know why I even bother trying anymore”. Like a majestic wild mustang running free through the hills and valleys of the northern Rocky Mountains, Jim Wallace cannot be restrained by the structure and rules of everyday podcast conversation. You speak and then I speak? I think not! WILDMAN Jim does as he pleases. Why? Because he knows no other way! In Webster’s English dictionary there is a full page dedicated to the word WILDMAN in which there are 2 pictures of Jim, because one just isn’t enough. Ancient mystical scrolls foretold of a man so wild that conventional societal guidelines pertaining to conversion would never be considered let alone attempted. That man? Jim Wallace! More recently the local state penitentiary dedicated its highest security cell block housing its most violent and deranged criminally insane inmates as the “WILDMAN Jim Wallace” wing. And finally there is an old wives tale about WILDMAN Jim roaming the countryside becoming furious at the thought of a dish called the “diner Wellington” and biting the heads off of unsuspecting restaurant employees who forget to bring milk for his camomile tea.

All of that is to say the podcast overall is good. I guess

Matt Poirier ,

Always a great time!

This podcast is always a lot of fun! Whether it’s Sleazy Spader or Ninjavember, or just a one-off show any other time of year, I’m always entertained, and always look forward to it!
