OH GOD! OH MAN OH GOD! OH MAN! OH...baby. Have we got a wild one today. The Cannon Bros (Geoff and Frank) are tackling the 1987 Norman Mailer "Comedy" Crime Drama, Tough Guys Don't Dance. Joining us is the author of The Cannon Film Guide Vol 1, 1980-1984 and the upcoming The Cannon Film Guide Vol 2, 1985-1988, Austin Trunick! That's right a POWERHOUSE of Cannon films knowledge. But will we be able to tell you what is going on in this movie? Probably not. Will we be able to explain if this is a powerful parody of the genre or Norman Mailer crapped this movie and book out in a haze of cocaine? Unclear. And why is everyone spitting out their unwieldy dialogue like they are doing a high school production of a Tennessee Williams play in the middle of Rhode Island? Well, we definitely don't get that, but we have a lot of fun trying to figure it out and so will you! So, sit back, relax, grab a head in a bag or three? And start figuring out if Tough Guys really Don't Dance? Maybe?
