Well, the title of the episode pretty much says it all. We’ve made it to the end of 2016, somewhat the worse for wear, but will soldier on into 2017 bringing you, our handful of faithful listeners, more idiotic discussions, low-brow conversation, and the general lack of insight and fact-checking you have come to expect. From all of us to all of you, it can’t get much worse, can it? Enjoy the final episode of 2016, because this year has been more of a train-wreck than this show!

We all have our favorite movies. We also all have out favorite TV shows. Every once in a while, we even get to see our favorite movies become TV shows, and then we get all excited and it’s like “ERMAHGERDIT’STHABESTTHINGEVER” and then FOX goes and cancels it…. Join us this week as we discuss some of the movies we feel should get a shot at their own air time on the “boob tube” (even a mini-series would be nice)! Get the doctor to fill out your paperwork, dry those Whovian tears, and definitely watch out for 8-year-olds as you kick back and listen to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
I love me some Alan Tudyk and Tyler Lebine so when I found out they were making a new movie together I started to get excited, then I saw the trailer and knew I had to see the movie. I waited patiently hoping to find out a release date only to be disappointed time after time. After a very limited theatrical release Tucker and Dale was finally released on DVD November 29, 2011, and I must say it was well worth the wait.
The story is split between following a group of college kids heading out to the mountains for a weekend of drinking and debauchery, and on the other side we have Tucker and Dale who are heading up to start work on their new vacation home.
(Spoilers ahead? Although if you watched the trailer you’re good to keep reading)
During a late night skinny dipping session one of the college girls (Allison (Katrina Bowden)) hits her head and begins to drown. Dale jumps in and saves her. This leads to the misconception that Tucker and Dale are out to kill the college kids. All hell breaks loose with the kids trying to rescue Allison from the “hillbillies” and in doing so, start killing themselves off one at a time.
Tucker and Dale is a good old fashioned comedy/horror in the vein of Army of Darkness and Idle Hands. It’s not really for the kids due to some of the death scenes, but at it’s core it is a light hearted comedy with a backdrop of drinking, sex, and death.
