99. The Secret of My Succe$s (1987)
This week Dave and Noah just can’t keep a secret, The Secret of My Succes$! This 1987 Rom Com stars Alex P. Keaton himself, Michael J. Fox, along with Helen Slater and Richard Jordan.
Fox is just a country boy from Kansas who moves to New York with dreams of becoming the next Donald Trump, a Trump with an even bigger propensity to screw family members.
When his first job falls through, he calls his uncle who happens run a multinational conglomerate just down the block. He gets a job in the mailroom and falls for Helen Slater, a real blue plate special who works in accounting. The boss’ wife throws herself at him while he takes over a vacant office, creating a fake personae that starts making great strides within the corporation. But falling stocks, a hostile takeover and an even more hostile libido of a horny aunt all conspire to ensare our wily Fox. Will the secret of his success be strong enough for a man, but PH balanced for a woman?
Dave and Noah talk about how to range the Night, the film Ruthless People, a time to kill, love in an apple-crater and Dave’s new band Horny Aunt Vera. Thanks for listening!
98. Youth in Revolt (2009)
This week Dave and Noah sing Que Sera, Sera with Michael Cera in 2009’s crap trap Youth in Revolt. It stars Cera, Portia Doubleday, Zach Galifianakis, Ray Liotta and Steve Buscemi. After swindling a bunch of sailors, Zach Galifianakis has to take his girlfriend and stepson, Cera, on the run to Clearwater, CA. While they are hiding out in a trailer park, Cera falls head-over-heels with Portia Doubleday, the girl next door. When it comes time to leave, Cera arranges to win the favor of Doubleday through a series of juvenile delinquent acts that will get him kicked out of his mom’s house and lead him back into arms of his trailer park princess. In order to accomplish this, Cera must create an alter ego named Francois to show him the ropes in juvenile debauchery. Que Cera, Cera, we hardly knew yee!
You’ll never guess what Dave and Noah have hidden in their closet! Plus, the topics of this week’s podcast: the color of Steve Buscemi’s parachute, Jonah Hills we’d die on, and a palette cleanser that is neither cleansing nor palatable.
97. 13 Going on 30 (2004)
Dave and Noah hop into a shoe closet time machine with Jennifer Garner and set the Flux Capacitor to 13 Going on 30, starring the Alias spy herself, Mark Ruffalo and Judy Greer.
On the day of her 13th Birthday, Jennifer Garner makes a wish to be Thirty, Flirty and Thriving, just like the models in her favorite magazine. A shoe closet and some novelty wishing dust Rip Van Winkle her 17 years into the future. She's Thirty and Thriving all right, but flirting with amnesia! She's a big time magazine editor whose somehow lost touch with her childhood best friend, Mark Ruffalo. She has to get him back and take the nearest closet out of this alternate timeline, and quick, before she's 30 going on Botex!
Dave and Noah are podcasting stealthily from a housesitting job in St. Paul. Shoe hoarding, Magazine rivalries, Golden Retrievers named Ruby and how to get rid of two corpses whilst handing out candy for Trick or Treaters are some of the many things discussed in this episode. Let's do the Time Warp Again!
The final fare fallow.
Noah goes Nanners Nanowrimo style.
Plus, we read the Katy Perry issue of Entertainment Weekly.
I don't think I am in the target demographic for this podcast but I find it really funny! Noah and Dave have great friend chemistry and I know creating a podcast is a lot of work, hope they continue! The concept of the show is reviewing what seem to be pretty bad movies that we have all seen and mostly forgot about. But the entertainment is also found in Noah and Dave's take on living in Minnesota (I'm originally from the midwest, although a different state), the awkwardness of life and just random stories and opinions (being friends they bring up things from each other's pasts too). Hands down the best and for some reason most gripping episode was the Fatty goes fallow when Noah read his magazine!!!! I cannot explain why I listened, fascinated to the end but I did. Also, being a lady, sometimes their explicitness and random tangents get a little too vulgar for me and I'll skip forward in the podcast but it's not gotten to the point that I've stopped listening to them. And I hate to admit it because I normally am able to apprecate literature and poetry but I tend to skp the palate cleanser...
23 minutes of fabulous
Well-written, well-delivered, well-inebriated. Because you'd have to drink to watch these movies. Taking one for the team, indeed. And yes, absolutely, hell IS Friends With Benefits on a continuous loop. Keep up the funny, guys!!
Always excited to support my fellow Minnesotans! These dudes are super funny and make me laugh out loud at my desk at work while I'm listening. They say exactly what we would like he movie reviewers to say out loud. Keep it up guys!
