54.5- Walk Hard (ft The Gilmore Guys)

We're taking it back to the classics of Buddy Holly, Elvis, presley, The Beatles, but most importantly, Dewey Cox in Walk hard: The Dewey Cox Story.  It's the next logical step for you listeners, even if you don't have a sense of smell!  Why does this movie work so well on its own?  What's the deal with all this music?  Anybody know what Jenna Fischer's up to lately? Well, besides Steven?  It's a big ol' TSTV reunion. Or is it? We've all known each other for years, but this might be the first time Steven, Michael, Demi, and Kevin are actually in the same room at the same time.

Joining us this week are Demi Adejuyigbe and Kevin Porter, AKA the Gilmore Guys!  They're famous for their Gilmore Girls review podcast and we're pumped to have them on the show!  They took a step away from Stars Hollow to bring Walk Hard to the table.  I gotta say, if you listen to this podcast for anything, it's gotta be the impromptu song.  EASILY our best challenge yet.

54- Some Like it Hot (Steven)

Shave your legs and grab some pantyhose, gentlemen! This week we're reviewing the classic screwball comedy about musicians in drag, 1959's Some Like It Hot! And you don't even need to watch anyone die for this one! This review cuts a little close to home for Michael since he too has spent a 'romantic' time at the very same hotel from this movie and vowed to never speak again...for about 10 seconds. Plus, we can all talk about how Marilyn Monroe's a classic 12 out of 10.

Joining us this week is Ashley Robinson to bring her expertise in film, tv, and even Marilyn Monroe to the table. Ms. Monroe was going through a downward spiral during this film's production and the film's decades old release makes for some interesting conversations about blending comedy and gender roles. Pretty interesting for a movie waaaay back in 1959 to take on cross dressing!

50- The Jerk* (Ryan)

 

The FUAR crew celebrates the big 5-oh this week - by making absolutely no mention of it! What gets mentioned plenty is the 1979 classic Steve Martin comedy, The Jerk! Among the aspects mentioned are the enduring, one-upsmanship style of comedy, the film's place as a coming of age tale, and, in this week's Challenge, stealing toys from sick children!

45- Black Dynamite

*Cue hi-hat ride and wah-wah guitar* Awwwwlriiight, you jive turkeys ain't never heard a podcast like this one before, in which the Crew reviews the 2009 blaxploitation parody film Black Dynamite. Among the topics discussed are how this movie gets everything wrong in exactly the right way, the quality of Michael Jai White's martial arts abilities, and a series of epiphanies that rock the very fabric of the group's dynamic and unravel a conspiracy that goes all the way to the top.

James brings the delightful Mel Brooks classic Western romp Blazing Saddles to liven the mood at FUAR HQ, until cries of racism threaten to bring the mood crashing down! Discussion of meta humor, characters who aren't characters, and the most famous executioners fill this very special episode of FUAR, all capped off with a Challenge in which the fate of an entire town lies in our very hands!
