On the Line is a tale as old as time, the love story of Turkey Sub and Hubcap. What happens when boy banders try their hand at acting? Bizarre sound effects, terrible musical performances, and lots and lots of chewing noises. Ike Barinholtz joins us to discuss a movie so shamefully bad that even its most ardent supporters hide themselves with nom de plumes. So tune into one of the 90,000 screens playing it, and while you're at it, pick up a brand new How Did This Get Made? t-shirt!

Due to the potential subject matter of this week's podcast here's a preemptive advisory for sensitive listeners.

Sometimes their shows are sponsored by LegalZoom.com.

I'm sure if any Ned Flander types out there was so outraged by the gang's edgey comedy, they would be able to find some advice on any action they could take, if any, on LegalZoom.com. Remember to use promocode "Earwolf".

How many times has Ike seen this movie?! And then, at one point, he said: "I'm going to have to watch it again."

Just look at the cover for this romantic comedy.... two douche-haired dudes all over each other, and the "love interest" haphazardly photoshopped into the background awkwardly like she was an afterthought. It sums up the entire movie perfectly.

I was going to go buy Frosted Flakes today. After listening to this, I've kind of soured on the idea.

By the way, I dont recall it being brought up in the podcast... but was that little boy's presense on the train EVER explained?? Why is Lance Bass and Joey Fatone sandwiching a random 6 year old boy on a train, who is somehow eating McDonalds and throwing down life lessons on weird girls on the train? Where is this kids parents??

Great episode. Now more than ever, isn't it time to watch "From Justin To Kelly"? It's hard to blame the stars too much since the whole thing screams "contractually obligated", but I can assure you it doesn't disappoint. If I remember correctly, this is actually a deleted scene but it still gives a pretty good idea of what to expect:

HA! Made semi-watching that stinking pile of shit poo bearable! Ike seems very dedicated to the cause of crap cinema so he would make a great fill-in any time someone is otherwise occupied. So, just, great episode!

The one satisfying thing about this whole fiasco.... the two writers for this mess have not done ANYTHING in movies/tv since. In fact, for both writers Eric Aronson and Paul Stanton... this movie is their ONLY credit.

First time poster here, want to say I love this show and loved Ike as the russian pitcher in eastbound and down.

Also big shout out to jason, listening to a review and he gets a shout out in the end http://my.spill.com/...or-audio-review

The fact that he was a highlight makes me excited for him. I love him on this show and hope for more success

I've seen this happen a lot in movies. Then, the person holding the handheld gaming device makes it 100% clear that they've never even seen one of these things, because when they're told to "play" it, they'll just violently shake the shit out of it.

Also, wasn't the Game Boy Advance out at this point? Way to not be on the cutting edge of what's hip and cool, "On the Line"!
