    Episode 206 - Little Italy

    I hear ya and not trying to be competitive... but marijuana wasn't legalize in Ontario till Oct 2018, before this film was in production. And as far as assuming the old ladies where already there because of the delivery men... well the screen shot shows a lot of other demographics:

    But the real question is... did your cousin marry their 2nd Step Cousin?

    I’m surprised this didn’t come up on the podcast, but I was blown away by how many times the cast said “Little Italy.” Although 23 times may not sound like a lot, it’s word combination that definitely stands out... especially when it’s delivered in a stereotypical Italian accent. Attached is a quick compilation of a few of them: Little Italy Little Italy Little Italy.mp3

    Regarding the Marijuana prank, I'd like to understand what the rival shop owner did to get so many customers to show up? Up until that point, both shops were struggling for business and it's not like the owner promoted the prank... "Hey go to this resturant for there's free pot in the pizza." Some people could argue that a few people showed up and the rest was word of mouth. My counter to that, is that everyone in the restaurant reacts at the same time to the results of the pot. So that means everyone essentially showed up like a flash mob. So again, if one owner is able to get so many patrons to show up for this prank... why isn't he doing that same leg work for his own business and sell legit pizza?

    I too thought that was insane. Honestly at the very beginning of the film I thought they were cousins. At least they aren't blood related, however the family tree will surely be wonky after both marriages.

    I was surprised that the story didn't kick off with Emma returning home and still feeling hurt by Hayden's initial lack of interest. To Paul's point, this is possibly why she left for London in the first place. With this storyline, Emma would be aligned with her family and try to help make a more refined pizza, which in turn would bring more business. By introducing Emma's culinary expertise, Hayden must now take over his family's place and create a stellar pizza too. Then you have two businesses that have upped their pizza game all leading to the final showdown. Of course during this time of back and forth pranks, we can see their love blossom and cause conflict due to their initial familia allegiance.

    Let alone it's a direct rip off of this famous clip of Ramsay!

    BTW.... What major paper has a hacker on staff? In this setting, a news organization, hacking is illegal and any information obtained that lead to a story is subject to lawsuit! And as far as Harrison Hill being so recognizable as ad exec, I'd equate him to Donny Deutsch in our world.

    Hey Paul. I have a really serious question.. Why does Halle want to solve this murder and draw more attention to it by writing a huge exposé? As the murderer, wouldn’t she want it to just slip through the cracks??? Sure you could assume she wants to pin it on Harrison Hill to really protect herself, but for all we know, the ONLY piece of evidence that eventually links her to the murder is that she previously visited the wife’s photography site. No cop is ever considering her and Halle was even told by Grace that she and her ex were recently doing “more fighting then fucking.” So Halle should just give that nugget to the cops and be on her way. Case closed. PS: Besides Bruce and Halle previously being in other HDTGM films, so to was the Rebook account. That was also the big get for the ad agency in “On the Line.” (The lance bass film... ha.)
  10. As Paul mentioned, the ad on the taxi cab is for Señor Pizza... which is a callback to a previous Kristie Alley film. What film you might ask? How about the one where Patrick Dempsey is a pizza delivering gigolo! Yup... We're talking about 1989's Loverboy! Oh and the tag line in the trailer is, "His customers always come first." Suuuupppper appropriate easter egg for this kid's film. Or maybe the gang is right and this really isn't a kid's film after all! Trailer:

    Also are we really to expect this building is just allowing any kind of visitor to come up to the pearl? Outside of a few floors towards the very bottom of the building, this is a residential tower. What kind of apartment complex come up to visit this attraction?

    When the secondary team breaks into the offsite security office, I got really pissed off on how they executed everyone. As you can see in the provided image, the 4 shooters were just aiming aimlessly at all the technicians below with no regards to hitting any of the high tech equipment. This would be fine if not for the next scene, the hacker needed to tap into those same computers to overtake The Pearl. Also I don't see this movie as just a shitty Die Hard... because it's more of a shitty combination of Die Hard and Die Hard 4. In fact this particular scene happened exactly in Die Hard 4... when Timothy Olyphant's sexy asian girlfriend (Maggie Q) attacking an offsite security office. Again image provided. From Skyscraper From Die Hard 4:

    Episode 201 - Skyscraper

    After The Rock's daughter is kidnapped, the squad tells The Rock to get the USB drive or she'll die. Pretty simple troupe, but there are two things that infuriated me: The Entire Villainous Team Leave The Rock ALONE!!! Why?! Why would they not leave one person to watch over The Rock and ensure he does as he's told?! What if right after everyone leaves, the billionaire sees that The Rock is alone and decides to open the doors? Then he and The Rock can team up and come up with a plan to rescue the daughter and escape. The bad guys tell The Rock to get the USB drive. The Rock has no clue what that drive looks like, therefore the billionaire could easily give him some other random instrument that also looks like a high-tech vibrator. This movie is soooo sloppy even for a popcorn film staring The Rock.

    I agree, but let me go one step further... The whole concept of The Rock's character in this film is LITERALLY POINTLESS. The Rock is only brought in because his former partner needs to get the tablet from the billionaire to the bad guys. There is nothing The Rock specifically has to do in order for the bad guys to succeed. It's not like The Rock is the original engineer or security expert that created all the saftey measures of The Pearl. If that was the case, than that is why The Rock would have the tablet and be so instrumental to the storyline. But how the movie is constructed, all the elite villains had to do is create a shell company similar to The Rock's (maybe using Squarespace.com ; offer code "bonkers"), and just have a bad guy portray this expert to sign off on the building. He would have then gotten the job and just walked out the door with the tablet. Bingo Bango.
