Ray Gootz (Gootz's Disney Pod and Comics Watching Comics) joins the boys to share his displeasure for one of the most influential films of the 90's, Jurassic Park.

We're back and with a flourish. @JohnFugelsang (Sirius XM, VH1, Coyote Ugly) targeted one of America's most treasured classics: Gone With the Wind. That's right, the HIGHEST grossing film of all time (adjusted for inflation) is the one John chose to make @Kevin Gootee and @Kevin Israel sit through nearly FOUR HOURS of Scarlett O'Hara act like a whiny b--ch. Do Kevin and Kevin frankly not give a damn a...

We believe that this episode is definitely going to strike a nerve. @MarkRiccadonna joins @KevinGootee and @KevinIsrael to throw a fan favorite film into the wood chipper and that film...the Hangover. This ranks as a lot of people's FAVORITE comedy; especially in the last 10 years. Does Mark nail this argument like Mike Tyson nailed Ed Helms with a right cross? Or is his argument small and insignificant like Ken...

Linette Palladino (Comics Watching Comics on Amazon Video and featured in the NY Times) is a badass lady. She's a comedian, mom, and a captain in the US Army. However, she chose a film that's near and dear to both Kevins' hearts...Pulp Fiction. That's right, she does not enjoy the tale of Vince, Jules, and the Gimp. She may have survived several tours of duty in the Middle East but will she survive Kevin Gootee ...

This episode starts off differently than most as Kevin Gootee, Kevin Israel, and Mo Vida discuss their feet. Why? Because Mo put up a picture of her feet on IG and had several people put in cash offers for feet photos. After that hullaballoo, Mo Vida attempts to sway Kevin and Kevin that Stallone sucks in everything he does and that Rocky is no exception. Does Mo walk out of there with the title belt? Or does her argument end ...

Yeah, someone ACTUALLY has the audacity to try to take down one of the greatest films of all time. And that someone is Mike Krewina, co-host of the Rob Saul show.
