Sneaky Dragon Episode 282

by David Dedrick on April 29, 2017

Welcome back, Sneakers, to part two of the Movie Quiz plus some other nonsense. This week on the show we learn that Ian really likes comic books and Dave really likes Whit Stillman – if you didn’t already know that. Also, Ian and Dave have a new giveaway; they discuss some local politics generally; would like to just leave it there; don’t like movie stunts as movie stunts; tackle the final part of the Movie Quiz; are tired of tired franchises; discover Ian is in someone’s pocket; meet Fishy Goldman; have outdoor sex; visit Lego hell; like the amazing J-Law; decide where The Simpsons went wrong; like when bad movie outcomes are good; talk about what makes a good story; explore male dynamics and self-acceptance; are looking forward to…; learn Ian is a muscle-bound romantic; hear once again about Ian’s very least favourite, most terrible film of all time (and, no, it’s not Heaven’s Gate or Howard the Duck or Striptease or Battlefield Earth or The Room or Movie 43); Boobs McGee returns with tragic consequences; and, finally, we learn that Dave is a jackass and Ian is a Brad Bird acolyte.

Thanks for listening.

Dave can make fun of me all he wants. I only listen for the sirens.

Also isn’t Boobs McGee a thing from Happy Gilmore?


Ian Boothby April 30, 2017 at 7:26 pm

No, I just looked it up and Big Boobs McGee is a phrase used in Sandler’s film Big Daddy. Happy Gilmore on the other hand has that hilarious Subway ad in the middle of it. That’s how you can tell the two apart.


David Dedrick May 1, 2017 at 12:45 am

Aw, I was only teasing you, Thomas. Didn’t you hear us talking about male dynamics?!? Better than me sacking you…


Thomas Callaway May 1, 2017 at 6:52 am

So you think I’m serious about only listening for the sirens?

Also, great title card.


David Dedrick June 5, 2017 at 10:46 pm

Thank you for your great taste!


Chris Roberts May 2, 2017 at 9:28 am

I assumed you were kidding about Fishy Goldman, but here he is!

Chris, I’m still trying to work out who Mo Schlubbman is! Although I do recognise Alan Smithee. I have his cut of ‘Dune’, with screenplay by ‘Judas Booth’…

I’m not much of a movie person, so my list would peter out after about ten categories. Enjoying the discussion, though!
