RE: DeNiro’s onscreen chemistry, or lack there of , throughout his filmography .... what about the “steamy” love scene between him and Bridgette Fonda in Jackie Brown? I believe she offers a hit from the bong and then drops a, “You wanna Fu@k?”

Best line in this movie is in the first John Hamm scene, where he says to the Claire character, "This is the FBI, we're not inept you know." V. clever line as they go on to prove how inept they are during the rest of th movie.

This one was so dang good! I get the comment made about how this movie was something that needed to be seen when it came out/childhood. I saw it when I was 12 and I was mesmerized by it (got its hooks in me). I just watched it with my two boys (16 and 12) and while they liked it, it did not grab them the way it grabbed us back then. It is hard for them to understand it’s greatness when compared to the current action flicks they watch today. I totally agree with y’all’s assessment that it broke the mold on how action films started to become more stylized. Great content! Never stop!

Yes, I agree with the comment, “the movie washed over me”. Felt the same way. This movie caused me to sit up and move to the edge of my seat in the theater. Every single scene had me in a glorious trance.

I know podcasters need sponsors to keep giving us free content, but the Mr. Mom TV series people can't be happy that they gave The Ringer money to do this episode if you were going to just go through the motions. Clearly, Mr. Mom the movie would never have made the cut for this podcast - Bill and Amanda struggle to find anything classically "rewatchable" about the film. Plus, the entire conversation seems forced... like they can't wait to get on to other projects. I'm guessing this was an experiment in ad revenue generation that won't be repeated, unless the hosts get a whole lot better at faking enthusiasm.

Shawshank is Bill's favorite movie ever? Then why does he keep calling the field in Buxton a cornfield? It's a hayfield, Bill!

The wild west was wild compared to modern times but Hollywood has skewed our perspective. Only 3 people died at OK Corral but that makes for a boring movie. Dodge City went a while without a sheriff and didn't have a single murder. The violence in the old west usually had to do with the US government and/or Indians.
