“EuroTrip” (2004) teen comedy. It’s a bingo card of lazy European stereotypes this episode, as Steph, Em, and Norah wade through Matt Damon’s breakup revenge fantasy. One of our hosts discovers white wine, another recedes into dark memories of 13-year-old girl-dom, and yet one more just really, really wants every character in the movie to fail. Tune in to hear Emily’s very special connection to this “Rube Goldberg of plots”, and the hosts’ fondness for “not telling Scotty things”.

“She’s All That” (1999) teen rom-com. The show is taken over by far more hilarious hosts this week, with a look at the seminal girl-transforms-herself-for-douchebag “chick-flick” by three of it’s late-90’s target demographic. Join Stephanie, Norah, and Emily as they diagnose Culkin potato face, pen “Sister Prom 2: The Musical”, and attempt to figure out what exactly Usher does at the school (is he a student or an employee?). Just don’t try telling them to ditch their glasses or smile more as the “brain on drugs” girl hears that and more from Buffy’s slow-talking husband.
In all seriousness, though, don’t ever tell a woman (or anyone, really) to “smile more”. It’s incredibly creepy and disrespectful. For real.

“Groundhog Day” (1993) multiversal dramedy. Join the guys on a journey through time and space with our very special guest host (all the way from South Korea), Jon Ewart. We talk “Twilight Zone”, “Hannibal”, “There’s Something About Mary”, 90’s pop singer Robyn, and (naturally) Weird Al in our quest for the Windows 3.1 machine powering the entire multiverse. Strap in, sports fans, this season finale gets a bit dark and tragic. Will all of our hosts make it to season four?
Oh yeah, and we also talk about Bill Murray and Groundhog Day a bunch.

“Groundhog Day” (1993) drama-comedy with possibly a hint of rom-com. The guys dive into Bill Murray and Harold Ramis’ magnum opus with our very special guest, Mr. Brett Loughery. Jake and Steve take a barrage of questions from Brett while Pat makes bold, revealing choices. “Heidi II” is inspected, Brett’s pages of notes dissected, and Pat’s harsh vibe rejected. Weird Al, “South Park”, Jim Carrey, and “Stand By Me” are all dragged into this episode, while the hosts try to figure out who is messing with who.

“Groundhog Day” (1993) time warping comedy. Jake and Steve dig into this Ramis/Murray masterwork while Pat works on his crochet skills. Jake brings fun tidbits from the director’s commentary, Steve deep dives on period architecture, and Pat’s pretty certain something is rotten in Denver. Stick around for a surprise phone call from a big fan (apparently we’re a call-in show now?), film law as set by Ridley Scott, and a short thesis on ship maintenance in the Star Wars universe.

Released January 27, 2017
“Groundhog Day” (1993) comedy classic. The guys shake up show format with a first-time situation involving this wacky (but still incredibly touching) Bill Murray / Harold Ramis team-up. Pat has trouble telling his Murray-meets-rodent movies apart, Steve gets lost in an HMV, Jake tries (and tries) to pronounce “Tobolowsky”, Huey Lewis, Hudson Hawk, and Bio-Dome are somehow referenced, sincere spiritual discussion ensues, and one of the guys may or may not start a new faith.

“National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” (1989) holiday comedy classic. They guys snuggle in with Kahlúa hot chocolates for an annual viewing of the John Hughes penned Chevy Chase vehicle to cap off our second season. Local Moncton cable stations will be revered, digital rental prices reviewed, Chris Columbus called out, “The Hero’s Journey” embarked upon, the stitching of Clark’s suede work gloves studied, and the parallels (finally) drawn between yuppies and hipsters. Season finales don’t get much better folks — Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where’s the Tylenol?
