OV71 – Summer of Sandler Part IV – The 2010s featuring Mike’s Brother!

Here it is, the final part of our 4-part retrospective on the career of Adam Sandler. It’s been a long and very difficult road to get to this moment. But no matter how difficult things were before, this part proved to be to worst in terms of movies discussed.

Enjoy, as we rip Adam Sandler apart from Grown Ups to Grown Ups 2. And listen for Mike’s head to explode when he hears Matt’s theory about Jack and Jill.

OV69 – Guest TV Spots, Robin Williams Movies, TMNT and More Sound Issues

This week, we discuss TV Guest Spots. We start off running the gamut of some of Friends’ most memorable guest stars and from there we keep pretty close to the sitcom genre for the most part.

For Potpourri, we talk about some of Robin Williams’ performances we’ve revisited over the last week. We discuss TMNT and differ on Nebraska.

We had sound issues again this week! I apologize and hope it isn’t too distracting.

OV68 – Summer of Sandler Part III – 2005-2009 with Mike’s Brother!

It’s Part 3 of our Summer of Sandler series! Unfortunately, this episode is marred with technical difficulties. About 8 minutes into the episode, there’s a chopping sound that persists throughout the episode. We apologize and hope it’s not too distracting.

On the bright side, we were joined by Mike’s brother Kevin for this episode! It was a delight to have him in the studio with us and look forward to bringing him back at some point in the future.
