This week the boys call into question why on Earth everyone's idiot parents allowed them to watch a movie that's ALL about sending the wrong message when they watch 1978's terrible mistake: Grease.
(Movie begins at 10:03)
As always, we'd like to thank Laura Hammond of the webcomic XP for our show's art, Bensound.com for our outro music, everyone involved in the making of Grease (we guess), and you the listener for sticking with us!

That makes two movies in a row that stink out loud.
With Spider-Man: Homecoming right around the corner, The Worst Adults figured it was time to revisit the darkest entry in Spider-Man's cinematic past, the third entry in Sam Raimi's Sony series... And it does not disappoint. Which is to say it is very disappointing. If that makes sense.
(Movie begins at 11:26.)
This weekend Disney World's Animal Kingdom opened a new subdivision based on the 2009 smash hit James Cameron movie Avatar... You know, the one with the large blue cats doing their best recreation of Pocahontas. Because why not. And somehow Adam - our resident Disney expert - had never seen Avatar, so we remedied that before he set off on a research mission to Pandora. Enjoy!
(Begin movie at the 12:00 marker.)
Remember when we did that commentary for E.T. last year? Of course you do; you love this show! Well, we're basically doing that movie again... Only now there's MORE terror, MORE puppets, and OH SO MUCH MORE product placement! It's the biggest regret of 1988: Mac and Me! So head to the nearest McDonald's PlayPlace, order an ice cold Coca-Cola, and demand everyone be quiet so you can hear this garbage movie from your portable DVD player!
(Commentary begins at 12:40. Queue movie to just before MGM logo appears.)
The Worst Adults are what you might call gearheads. Yeah, they know about Nos and engines and... uhh... steering wheels. they grew up in the illegal racing circuits of mean Central Florida. So the choice to sit down and watch 2001's The Fast and The Furious was a no-brainer. In this commentary they praise some sick stunts, question the LAPD's obsession with some stolen TVs, and wax Vin Diesel's head! So fire up that DVD, because it's movie time!
And while we're in the zone (the Auto Zone!) make sure to come back April 8-14 for daily breakdowns of all seven Fast and the Furious movies as we get pumped for The Fate of the Furious!
Summer seems to be here early this year... so let's get afraid to go back in the water in February! That's right, friends: We're watching Jaws! So get ready for shanties, boat talk, one terrible story about a fish hook, and some legit blockbuster thrills as we star down the gullet of a giant metal shark!
(Commentary begins at 08:35)
As always we'd like to thank Laura Hammond for the art, Bensound.com for the tune, Steven Spielberg for making this excellent movie, and you the listeners for sticking with us! Be safe out there, Winter beachgoers!
Groundhog Day is maybe the most inconsequential holiday in the U.S. Maybe the world. Maybe ever. But Harold Ramis's 1993 light fantasy starring Bill Murray is maybe the most quietly profound film ever made (at least according to Matthew)... So we're going to talk over it for your listening pleasure. Along the way, we lean hard into a fan theory, talk about how this event will ruin any future Phil Connors could have, wonder where Andie MacDowell is now, and speculate on what we would do in Phil's unique situation! Feel free to listen on a loop.
If there's a movie you'd like us to comment on next month, hit us up!
As always, a big thanks to show artist Laura Hammond, Bensound.com, everyone involved in the making of Groundhog Day, and you the listener for sticking with us. Have a great week!
2016 is almost over, and we'd sort of given up by this point. So we thought we'd close out this miserable year with a miserable movie... But there can be miracles, even if you don't believe. As evidenced to us here, as the first R-rated movie Adam ever saw turned out to be just okay, but often quite enjoyable - what with the butts and the practical effects and all! So, much to our surprise, we present the Christmas miracle that is Sylvester Stallone's 1995 underdog Judge Dredd.
(Movie begins at 11:26.)

Merry Christmas, everybody!
Christmas means many things to many people. But we can all agree on one thing this season: Die Hard is the ultimate Christmas movie. So it seemed only right to invite ourselves into your home and talk over it!
Along the way we get very into Bruce Willis's body, point out several continuity errors, root for the true hero of the movie: Reginald VelJohnson, extol the virtues of Hans Gruber (and Alan Rickman's American accent!), marvel at the over-engineered nature of Nakatomi Plaza, give the production designer a lot of credit, and give our first perfect score to a movie!
If there's a movie you would like us to ruin commentate, hit us up!

Merry Christmas, everybody!
It's Halloween weekend, so this is a perfect opportunity to break out one of Adam's favorite spooky movies for this month's commentary: Gore Verbinski's 2002 classic The Ring! Join us as we run through some horror tropes, do battle with an Americanized Korean water ghost, explain old technology to young people, do some investigative journalisming, explain and find out just how much blood IS in a horse. We hope you brought enough Trick or Treat candy for everybody...
As always, a great big thank you to Laura Hammond for all the show's art, Bensound.com for our outro music, and you the listener for sticking with us! We'll see you next week for a special election-lite mailbag episode!
