  1. Hope I'm not too late with this for the Mini-episode but just listened to the episode and:

    Remember how Paul alluded to that opera-movie Furie & Dangerfield wanted to develop together? Well, that totally happened, but without Furie. In 2002 Dangerfield starred in "The Fourth Tenor," a movie about "A restaurant owner who falls in love with an opera singer and, desperate to impress her, travels to Italy to learn how to sing."

    Yep: https://letterboxd.c.../the-4th-tenor/

     

     

    (edit: I see grudlian also posted about this, weird I did a search but nothing came up, my bad!)


  2. Watched this today, oh man oh god indeed. This needs to be covered just so Blake Harris gets an excuse to start doing some digging on this baffling production.

     

    Imagine Tommy Wiseau wrote a spec script for Twin Peaks, someone only cleaned up the language to sound like actual English, but changed nothing else; then Golan & Globus got like, Vampire's Kiss Nic Cage to be an acting coach; and finally put everyone on a strict diet of cocaine. I'm 100% convinced that every ounce shown in the movie is the real deal, and NONE of it went to waste. Everyone in this movie is certifiable, and the grandiose garbage that comes out of their mouths is mind boggling. Not even kidding when I say Wings Hauser is the most nuanced part of this ludicrous equation. Well, he does slur the words "I made you come 16 times in one night" after he just had a stroke, but still.

  3. Paul, are you aware that Stewart Raffill who directed Mac & Me and Mannequin Two also made a little movie called "Tammy and the T-Rex" starring Denise Richards, Paul Walker AND Terry Kiser? Basically Terry Kiser plays a scientist who steals Paul Walker's brain and hooks it up to an animatronic T-Rex, bringing it to life. A bunch of crazy, crazy stuff happens and in the end the T-Rex gets killed and suddenly Paul Walker's brain is hooked up to a camcorder in Denise Richards' room and she does a PG striptease for him and he cums and that is how the movie ends.


  4. Nonsensical high concept plot ("killer" ambulance drives around snatching up diabetics), ludicrously entertaining dialogue (Red Buttons in particular has some amazing lines), bizarre characterisation (if James Earl Jones ain't chewin' gum he chewin' scenery); basically all the things you can expect from Cohen, cranked up to 11. Meanwhile I'm just shaking my head in disbelief, giddy as a motherfucker.

     

    At one point Eric Roberts (at the height of his mullet game) is being stared down by a couple of punks and goes "What a shitty time to get mugged." so my girlfriend goes "Why is this happening?" and I go "I DON'T KNOW!" with a huge smile on my face.

    That about sums up The Ambulance.

     

    The entire thing's on Youtube as well:
