Episode 32 โ€” 88 Minutes

Recommended Posts

Al Pacino is one of America's finest film actors. Of course, you wouldn't know that if you've only seen 88 Minutes. This week we invite Pete Holmes into the fold to suffer through this real-time adventure and the accompanying misogyny, unnecessary character names, and first draft dialogue. We're more than happy to invite Pete into our "most secure files area." If you haven't yet watched the movie, use this link to rent it and help Earwolf simultaneously! Hooah!

Wow! My favorite parts were the dueling Pacino's and then Pete saying, "Saying anything about this movie, I want to yell some more." Need to have Pete on more, I laughed so hard each time he and Jason starting doing Pacino. Just wonderful.

So for some reason, I have a different copy of this movie. It is actually produced by Millennium? or something like that. Anyways a bunch of the scenes you guys talked about where not in this cut... Not that it made a huge difference, but it was probably not as bad... It also was not helpful that I am a prison counselor intern in Washington State, so this movie was little to close to home for me to totally hate it.

Jason Mantzoukas and Pete Holmes together! Awesome! *adjusts volume*

ย 

If TJ Miller shows up, it'll be the most shrill podcast ever.

One of the best episodes yet, guy. It's been a good couple podcast days for Mantzoukas (best Bang Bang in a long time) and my new love, Pete Holmes (the Kyle Kinane espisode of You Made it Weird was off the charts). Nice work, everyone.

While all the guests have been awesome, when someone is so into it, as Pete Holmes is, it is impossible not to get caught up in the sheer absurdity. Awesome episode.

Wow!!! I discovered that there are 2 versions of this horrible film, the one used/viewed for this podcast that has approx. 111 minutes of running time and the one that I saw that has 108 minutes ( I saw the Brazilian or Portuguese DVD version ).

The main difference is that the one I saw has a completely different shorter intro and an extended ending compared to the one you guys saw...

ย 

The differences are...

ย 

*"The Family Room Entertainment" Logo is replaced by the "E.F.F." logo for Emmet/Furla Films.

ย 

( The only logo I recognized was "Millennium Films" from such "modern classics" as: Righteous Kill (2008) with Al Pacino, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans (2009) with Nicolas Cage, The Expendables (2010) with a lot of Hollywods action stars, The Mechanic (2011) with Jason Statham, Drive Angry (2011) with Nicolas Cage & Trespass (2011) with Nicolas Cage to name a few, and some of those have even been featured on HDTGM LOL ).</div>

ย 

* The "Twin asian girls in underwear" intro scene is not included at all and is replaced by a party/bar scene where we see Al Pacino dancing and drinking with the Naked Yoga Girl who he wakes up with and is later murdered ( My guess is that the "Twin asian girls in underwear" intro was shot but cut from my version to make it seem like Neal McDonough who plays Jon Forster was framed by Al Pacino testimony and is innocent and then reveal that he is actually guilty and pulling the strings from prison in the end when he calls Leelee Sobieski but Al Pacino answers her cellphone and breaks it, but because I didn't see "Twin asian girls in underwear" intro nor the courtroom scene this creates a plot hole and somewhat increases the confusion of the viewer :S ).

ย 

* After party/bar scene ( We see snippets of it through out the movie ) there is a montage of evidence from the murder of Al Pacino's little sister followed by a black screen with a digital clock font "88:00" that fills the screen and zooms in until it fades to white then we see the water plane, the space needle, but the title where it reads "9 years later" is removed, then the movie picks up its continuity and we see Al Pacino waking up to the sound of Bubba Sparx - Ms.New Booty.

ย 

* I found the last difference near the end of the film, when Al Pacino throws the cellphone he stands there but without the 2 flashbacks ( His sister with a kite and the Asian surviving sister in his office ) he picks up the recorder and puts it in its pocket the FBI guy nods in a closeup shot, later we see a wide shot of agents the FBI guy, and the red haired student played by Alicia Witt as Al Pacino leaves, then we see a close up of dead Leelee Sobieski followed by Al Pacino and Alicia Witt talking in the hall of the College and he says admits to coaching the surviving twin with her testimony it was to secure the guilty verdict, then Al Pacino goes to the Auditorium where his classes are held and tells his students that Jon Forster has been executed and we the audience see the execution via lethal injection, he continues to say that this is not a reason to celebrate and that the pain caused by the loss of a special someone is something that nobody completely overcomes but that you learn to live with as time goes by ( Maybe he was referring to the death of his sister ) then he continues his class by asking a question and then the movie ends, in this version the credits last 5 minutes (1 minute less than your version )

ย 

I think this movie is a bad ripoff of Copycat (1995) and Insomnia (2002) with some elements of the T.V. show 24 and the voice from Saw

ย 

ย 

I didn't intend for this post to be this long so if you read it in its entirety... THANK YOU!!! :)

In the immortal words of Jimmy Pardo, "Pete Holmes? I think you mean Dave Holmes."

Definitely happy I skipped out on this one. I saw a running time of almost 2 hours and just didn't feel like watching The Cino for that long. Sounds like I didn't miss too much.

(I guess we know who's the hippest person on the podcast, although I guess that's not that big of a feat when the guest is Pete Holmes.)

Great, great episode...Love Pete Holmes, loved the new feature of reading those ridiculous lines. This movie was full of them and probably the only way to watch it is with friends and riffing off the absurd lines...My favorite has to be when he is trying to convince the cop to give him 10 more minutes:

ย 

Cop: I know how you operate...It's no secret your a womanizer, you drink too much...How do I know that you haven't gone completely over the edge?

ย 

Yeah...it's only a short hop-skip-jump from boozing womanizer to perverted copy cat killer...

Silly pet peeve: For a wine con-o-sewer (that Vosne Romanee on the table goes for a couple hundred), he is swigging wine holding the glass around the bowl and not the stem...

Thank you, HDTGM for the longer episodes. The hour long episodes of HDTGM make the juice worth the squeeze.

Pete Holmes shouldn't feel bad for thinking that Leelee Sobieski might be blind. I got that impression too, from the exact scene he mentioned. I just dismissed it and thought that it might have been a cut plot line from a very early version of the movie or something. Or just because NOTHING in this movie makes sense.
