Treatment 121 – The Golden Child

NumsieThe Secret of My Success was a no-go (thanks a heap, Netflix) so we went to the first runner up in our April’s Fools poll. Naturally, we were all happy to watch this one.

The Golden Child

Ah, Eddie Murphy, how we fondly recall the days when you were cool. Back before you resorted exclusively to children’s programming. This one also features our man James Hong, as well as a slew of Big Trouble in Little China cast members. Also, watch for Ben Dover of Fletch Lives fame.

THRILL… as the chatter devolves into pathetic quoting of funny lines from the film, and we give a listener his due!!!

GASP… at the long silences after many sad joke attempts!!!

AMAZE… as Matt tries to argue that this isn’t our worst episode ever!!!

The Golden Child is seriously wonderful, and is available streaming on Netflix (unlike The Secret of My Success). Be sure to watch it, because it’s great, and we don’t get a lot of those. Also, be sure to head over to iTunes and rate the podcast, please! Just don’t base your rating on this boring-ass episode. Also, if you’re into Stitcher, please add us to your favorites and thumb us up or whatever.

Next Week: It’s Summer School! Yes, our continued venture into comedy results in us watching a movie with Mark Harmon. Yeah, well you voted for it…

  1. Just started listening recently and I LOVE the podcast! You guys are hilarious and your choice of the schlockiest of dreck is perfect! I only wish I had found I found you guys earlier. So, when are y’all gonna take on “The Last Starfighter”?

    1. What? The Last Starfighter is a great movie!! (Or, at least, it was when I was 10.) We try to stick to covering movies available on Netflix or other streaming services, so that our listeners can watch the movie.

  2. We can all agree I was spot on. Now, bring on more Evil Dead remakes and also all of Monty Python movie and tv episodes should be done as well, chaps.

    1. You guys could say that you’re doing a Monty Python movie and then instead of actually doing it, just play back the audio of the actual movie! Nobody would be able to tell the difference!!!

      OH SNAP

  3. Fun fact (because I know how much Marc likes sports): before he was an actor, Randall “Tex” Cobb was a professional boxer. He fought Larry Holmes for the world heavyweight title in the 80s and… um, got hit a lot. Sorry, forgot about my audience for a little bit. He got hit a very, very lot. And then he said “I will pretend to be a tough guy in front of Eddie Murphy instead.”

    Otherwise, I would say that I hate to say that I told you so but I actually love to say I told you so. Fortunately, I don’t think you’re going to have the same issue with Mark Harmon. Another fun fact: the entire script of “Summer School” was written out beforehand. There is only one ad-lib moment and it was cut out of the final version, which is the famous part where Harmon says “you kids either finish this class or I will give you AIDS with my AIDS penis.”

  4. I’m calling bullshit on Kirk’s/IMDB’s “Eddie Murphy is a cool man” triviafactogram. Sure, what he says sounds vaguely like that in hindsight, but unless Murphy confirms he did it on purpose, I’m chalking it up to pareidolia.

        By the way, the answer to your best friend question, Marc, is because you spent 2 hours going out of your way to remove a part of the website that Rollie really enjoyed.

        Jerk poll update: Marc- one million. Matt- zero


  5. Ha ha ha ha ha! Very cute and amusing. Just to clarify, I was not actually entertaining any sort of friendship with anyone. Indeed, that would require actual effort, and might possibly involve leaving the house. No-go there, eh?! So allow me to assure you that, while I sometimes play at it, there is no real danger of my beginning any kind of friendship with any of you. You can all put your minds at ease.
