Episode 100 — Junior

Recommended Posts

In a special 100th episode of HDTGM, Paul, June, and Jason finally tackle Junior, the movie that inspired HDTGM’s artwork! They’ll cover everything from Smartszennegger, Emma Thompson being a klutz, Schwarzenegger in drag, DeVito’s jerk off room, and how there is no scientific explanation on how Schwarzenegger’s baby could survive in his belly. Plus, everyone pitches their remake of the film.

Just got done watching this horrible piece of It film. This has to be the worst Arnold movie and hands down.

 

The only good part about this movie is I get to listen to the podcast now .

 

There is only one great scene in this movie and that's when Arnold has the dream of having a baby and the baby looks like him. Otherwise I didn't laugh during the entire film.

 

I'll comment about the podcast tomorrow.

 

Merry Christmas everyone!

The Molly Ringwald pregnancy movie that Jason was talking about was 1988's "For Keeps", where she and her high school boyfriend accidentally conceive a child and decide to get married in order to raise the newborn.

If you don't like this podcast, then you don't deserve to like this podcast at all!

 

I think their discussion about Aerosmith not fucking someone for not being hot enough is failing to give them enough credit for being gross old sex pervs.

 

Sic Semper Gigantis!

Did anybody else notice who the singer was at the pharmaceutical rep party? That was Cassandra Wilson--one of the best modern jazz vocalists in the world. Why is she in this movie?

Crosses the GOAT threshold shockingly early as Jason pitches his version of June's rewrite. Good ep.

Happy 100!

 

1. Can't believe they didn't talk about the Arnold Baby dream sequence with the creepy CGI head.

 

2. IMDB lists Triplets http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2334867/ the end of the trilogy where Eddie Murphy would be the 3rd brother of Arnold and Danny.

 

3. If you listen to the Total Recall Autobiography, you can listen to Arnold describe the premises of most of his movies including Junior, easily worth the cost of the book to hear his take on a movie. Paraphrasing it won't do it justice.

For what it's worth, when they're trying to figure out how they're developing the drug but also delivering babies, the answer is that they're REIs. Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility specialists who do a three-year fellowship after finishing their four-year OB/Gyn residency. Like MAAAA WIIIIIIFE

I did some research and found a "beta version" of the HDTGM poster made by Sam Bradford circa or before 2008 and posted on Paul facebook page by Paul himself when apparently VH1's Best Week Ever had a Photoshop Contest and fans submitted various pics with Pauls face photoshoped in them... (I do not own any of this pictures)

This was so goddamned good (with the bits escalating so effortlessly) that I want to encourage Paul, June, and Jason to record more guest-less episodes. Congratulations on this monumental achievement in podcast history!

This was definitely not a sequel to Twins. This was the third of an UNCONNECTED trilogy by Ivan Reitman ( the other two being Twins and Kindergarten Cop) that involved Arnold, but that is where any similarities end.

This film was surprisingly nominated for a bunch of Golden Globes including Best Actor in a Comedy for Arnold Schwarzenegger, Best Actress in a Comedy for Emma Thompson and Best Original Song for "Look What Love Has Done". It lost the former two categories to Hugh Grant in Four Weddings and a Funeral and Jamie Lee Curtis in True Lies respectively, while the latter was beaten out for both the Globes and the Oscar by "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" from The Lion King. Here's the song that I'm posting of which was performed by Patty Smyth:

NO, but they kept making it seem like a wrap up, every time they said something about it being the hundredth episode, during the beginning, they sounded so conclusive. But I hope that I misheard. Sorry to be so dramatic!! It is a great episode! Listen to it now!!

the only time i've seen (part of) this movie was sometime soon after it came out on vhs, on the ferry to newfoundland (http://i.imgur.com/1jO7bAk.jpg) during a really choppy winter crossing. 12 year old me only made it halfway through this ipecacian piece of cinema before stumbling to the bathroom and projectile vomiting in rapid fire succession in probably 4 or 5 different stalls, as the ship's pitching and rolling quickly made each new stall unclean.

I just stared and within the first five minutes, Jason says they are not stopping the podcast. :)
