Treatment 75 – Ghostbusters 2

Is it really a bad thing for Hollywood to pump out a sequel to a hugely beloved film, even if it’s sub-par? Isn’t it better to have more of the characters you love than nothing at all? That’s what we discuss this weekend as we review yet another disappointing sequel!

Ghostbusters 2

The whole crew is back in the second effort from writers Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. But are they as good? Is the plot hackneyed, or just as good as the first? Are the jokes there to induce laughter or vomiting? Opinions are mixed between the Schlock Docs, though everyone agrees that Peter MacNichol steals the show!

TAKE CONTROL… as Marc reveals his theories about the Hollywood formula for sequels!!!

CALL… who you’re going to, as Doug tells the hilarious tale of his drunk friend who fell in the screening of Mr. Bean!!!

BE FILLING WITH JOYFULNESS… as the guys do multiple Jannosh impressions, and declare him the best thing about this movie!!!

Ghostbusters 2 is available streaming on Netflix Instant and on Crackle! It’s also free to stream on Amazon for Prime Members, so look for it in our store! Then be sure to head over to iTunes and rate the podcast! Also, subscribe for next week, when we’ll bring you yet another awful sequel!

Next Treatment: We bring you one more bad sequel with Staying Alive!

Treatment 68 – Flatbed Annie & Sweetie Pie

It’s our second ever Dougless podcast! NOOOOO! And, boy could we have used him on this episode to bring some joy to an otherwise joyless movie. We continue our series of truck-drivin’ films in a little something we call “Large March.”

Flatbed Annie & Sweetie Pie: Lady Truckers

This is a boring, lifeless made-for-TV movie that even Annie Potts couldn’t save. It’s got trucks, lady truckers, random hijackers, an annoyingly persistent repo-man, and a young Rory Calhoun! It also has the guys at their wits end, trying to find something good to say about this film.

CRINGE… as Matt, yet again, abuses our listeners and truck drivers across the USA!!!

THRILL… as Marc, Kirk and Matt give a tuneful rendition of the type of theme song, this movie would have, if it made it to series!!!

WONDER… at the audacity of filmmakers that made a truck driving movie full of southerners and cowboys, but still set the whole thing in Southern California!!!

If you’ve got a hankering for some self-torture, you can find Flatbed Annie & Sweetie Pie: Lady Truckers on Netflix to watch instantly. If Matt hasn’t driven you to hate us, please subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and write us a review, or give us a 5 star rating! Then join us next week, for the next in our truckin’ series!

Next Week’s Treatment: We continue Large March with White Line Fever!! It’s available to watch in full on YouTube!
