It's a special spoiler-filled birthday edition of SIMAMG as we watch Teen Wolf, the 1985 coming-of-age, dunking-werewolf...comedy? Its weirdness left us with more questions than answers. Such as: what's the thematic value of Teen Wolf? Could a teen werewolf feasibly work in a kids gym? Why would anyone name their kid BOOF? How do you surf on a car in L.A. without killing yourself? What does the teen wolf guy have in common with Miley Cyrus AND Kobe Bryant, according to Krissy? What's up with that crazy beer keg party? What if Teen Wolf starred Michael Jackson instead of Michael J. Fox? Why are Twlight's werewolves always so serious? How corny was that Big Bad Wolf dance? Did some guy show his manjunk at the very end of this movie? Why does Justin say "inherently" so much? We cover it all at embarrassing length. This podcast is rated PG-13!

In honor of Toy Story 3 blowing our minds over the weekend, we subjected ourselves to one of the CREEPIEST KIDS MOVIES OF ALL TIME, the Kroftian 1985 "kids movie," The Hugga Bunch. Don't believe us? It's on You Tube as evidence. During this PG-13 spoiler-filled episode, Justin explains his personal connection to the movie, plus J&K discuss putting grandma out to pasture, Southern accents, not-so-cool hugs, homemade McGriddles, Clarissa Explains It All, squishy mirrors, singing midget people, phantom penises, "turd-like testicles," fiery mammoths!!!, young berries, & dusty attics. It's the longest anyone has ever talked about this horrible, horrible movie, guaranteed.
The podcast is back for season 2 with a SPOILER HEAVY & very PG-13 look at SPLICE! At great length through bouts of laughter (sorry), we do many impressions of DREN & discuss whether the actors were "in on the joke," awkward Elaine dancing, chicken hand legs, the worst mystery-solving threesome of all time, "freaky barn sex" and Disneyworld.
We're up to eight episodes, and it's about time that Krissy lost ALL HER CREDIBILITY. It's MAY-HAM! Meanwhile, Justin loses his ability to speak coherent English. Well, maybe that's due to seeing life through crap-colored glasses. Also, he is NOT Ben Affleck. And Krissy's still waiting for Guffman.
I am Jack's Complete Lack of Surprise.
J & K discuss the 1987 "FLICK" Mannequin, along with extra-special podcast guest Kim Udelf. ...Who had nothing to do with the movie. She's just awesome. Also awesome? Handlebar mustaches (not rape-y ones), Asti & turkey impressions, the history of May Co., "I'm Samantha!" and areola'ge. Have a nipply good time!
We discuss adoptions, graphic opening scenes, Peter Saaaaaaarsgard, Scottish vs. pirate accents, hearing-impaired gadgets & surprise endings!!! Huzzah!
After Krissy tries dressing up like a dude in honor of the movie, we discuss feminism, androgyny, best friend "surprises," fake accents, Chatsworth High, jockstraps, newspaper internships & "major boobage."
We discuss George Clooney's suaveness, JLo & Selena, killer guard-fish & future bank robberies with K at the wheel.
We discuss Steve McQueen's irresistible machismo, Faye Dunaway's hair, fireworks & chess matches, the original vs. the remake, the Sheryl Crow song, etc.
The podcast experiment continues. Krissy sees GREMLINS for the very first time. Includes discussion of drive-ins, stair lifts, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, radio-voice actors, the PG-13 rating & devious movie marketing.
