Comedian Patton Oswalt (A.P. Bio) joins Paul, June, and Jason to discuss the the 1992 sports-comedy Ladybugs starring Rodney Dangerfield. They’ll talk about the lady who faints in the dressing room scene, Jackee’s sub eating technique, and Rodney breaking into song for no reason. Plus, a very special guest from the movie gives us some insight from being on set during audience Q&A!


Where to Find Jason, June & Paul:
You can see Jason, June, and Paul in The Disaster Artist in theaters now.
Paul’s new comedy Drive Share is available on Go90. Paul can be seen on A Futile and Stupid Gesture, Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, Opening Night, and Veep. You can see June and Paul on NTSF:SD:SUV:: on HULU. June stars in Grace and Frankie on Netflix, as well as Lady Dynamite alongside with Jason.
Jason can be seen in The Good Place, The House, The Lego Batman Movie, How to Be Single, Sleeping with Other People, and is still indeed in The Dictator.

Rodney Dangerfield did make an opera movie. It's called The 4th Tenor.

Great Balls of Fire, a song by a guy who married his 13 year old cousin is featured in a movie which plays with pedophilia as a joke? Yep: Checks out.

I'm glad Tim is back. I was worried he might have left us.

I don't want to go dark but I do believe Jonathan Brandeis would be alive today if this movie hadn't happened.

The age of the girls on the team range from 10-13 years old.

Also it's very clear by Mullen's office that the team is extremely successful.

So then why did only one girl return to the team? I get some of the girls on last year's team are now older then what the league allows, but you're telling me that no other player on last year's team decided to return for another potential trophy? And what happened to the previous coach of those winning seasons?

Help!!

Hey Paul... Wasn't it weird, that when Chesterfield visits his girlfriend, he brings her what looks like cheap-ass bouquet of roses bought at a gas station.

What makes it even crazier, is that he presents them to her while she's tending her insanely large garden of more attractive flowers. These would be beneath her standards and if she ever wanted flowers in her house, she would pull from her own garden.

I loved the intro to this podcast b/c that's exactly how I felt.

I watched this religiously when I was like 8-9 (when it came out), and I loved it. However, watching movies as an adult is def eye-opening.

My gf watched w/me too, and she couldn't handle the pedo-ey vibes R Danger kept throwing out there.

All I can say is that Vinessa Shaw is still the Day One crush. I remember seeing her later on in Hocus Pocus and 3:10 to Yuma and thinking "it's the ladybugs girl!".

Based off the movie vibes, I guessing the coach got fired for inappropriate conduct and the girls quit the team b/c "ain't nobody got time for that".

Dibs on the request to make the Lynch-esque cut of the trailer. I am doing it this weekend, come hell or high water. Hold me to it.

Two omissions:

I have never seen people announce that they're getting off an elevator in real life, on tv, or in a movie. Is that a thing people do? Why include that in the movie? Those men don't even need to be in the scene much less have a line! And a line as pointless as "getting off!"? I was expecting Dangerfield to make a jacking off joke, but nothing. They just have to move out of the way and stop their conversation over and over again. Very strange.

Also the fancy meal that Brandis fantasizes about is two plain hamburgers? Did Rodney take home all the other food?

In the scene where Kimberly comes by Mathew/Martha's house, he is totally surprised and caught off guard. He (rightly so) asks her how did she know where he lives? To which she replies:

"Somebody told me."

My Question is: Who? Who told her? Rodney didn't. Who else knows where Mathew lives (and also knows that he's Martha)?

It makes me wonder if there was deleted scenes from school where he had to pretend to be both Matthew and Martha. We only see them interact at school once... when his friend throws the football.

Either that or Kimberly is a stalker.

Damn, someone is a lot faster on the draw than me. Fantastic work too.

I might still take a stab at it, in more of the Eraserhead vibe.

Matthew would have had to fill out some paperwork for the soccer league in order to play as Martha, wouldn't he? Kimberly's dad owned the team, so ... maybe?

EDIT: HEY EVERYONE! IGNORE THESE NUMBERS BECAUSE THEY ARE WRONG! I HAVE AN AMENDED NUMBERS LATER IN THE THREAD!

I looked into which years have the most How Did This Get Made? movies. Here are the years with five or more movies:

9 movies: 1987, 2011
8 movies: 1995, 1996
7 movies: 1985, 1989, 2012
6 movies: 1986, 1991, 1992, 2003, 2006, 2010, 2013
5 movies: 1988, 1993, 1994, 2001, 2007, 2009

Since 1980, two years have not had a single How Did This Get Made movie. 2018 for the obvious reason and 1981. I have a some possible suggestions for 1981: Nobody's Perfekt, Going Ape, Carbon Copy and Heartbeeps. I've seen Nobody's Perfekt and Going Ape but it's probably been 20 years since I saw them. I liked them as a kid but they have probably not aged well. Carbon Copy and Heartbeeps both look amazingly bad.
