35. Tiptoes (w/ Dave Holmes)
There is no tiptoeing around it, this movie blows! Not even a French Peter Dinklage in cornrows can save this non-comedy about a full-sized dwarf dealing with his wife’s pregnancy. Not sold yet? Neither is Dave Holmes who joined us in watching this Sundance “Official Selection.”...

We introduce the first ever Second Opinions segment, and as always close it up with You've Got Mail. If you've got a child's heart, or had to d...

15. The Back-Up Plan (w/ Jackie Clarke)
When the most striking attributes of a film are its too-loud eating sounds and hot dog centric bloopers, you know it’s a prime candidate for How Did This Get Made?! This week Jackie Clarke joins Paul, June, and Jason to travel through the cheese caves and baby pools that populate this JLo flick. If you were concerned by the drinking, put off by the pratfalls, or curious about bush sightings, you are not alone! Listen in and maybe, just maybe, you’ll hear your own backup plan....


13. Crank 2: High Voltage (w/ Jensen Karp)
Why can’t more movies be like Crank 2? Sure it’s racist, sexist, implausible and disgusting, but that’s what makes it so much fun! Jensen Karp is our lucky guest in the studio with Paul and June (Jason is still in New York, but is live via satellite or something), and together they figure how tar enemas and full-body Tourette’s can make Chev Chelios’ second adventure so much better than the first. If this podcast doesn’t get your heart pumping, well…you’ll die, I guess. So you better listen!...

Minisode 13
What is better than one Crank film? TWO CRANK FILMS! Our movie for the week is Crank 2: High Voltage which is so adrenaline-fueled and insane that we have to ask: How could they possibly continue this franchise? Send us your ideas for Crank 3 here and on Facebook and we'll read our favorites on air!...

12. The Love Guru (w/ Matt Walsh)
Wayne’s World was a successful sketch-turned-movie that satirized the music and mentality of the time with absolute precision. Austin Powers hit the cultural zeitgeist so hard that the quotes and characters remain in public consciousness. The Love Guru is, uh…well, it’s a movie, that’s for sure. Matt Walsh, director of the upcoming film High Road, joins the How Did This Get Made crew (including an internet connected Jason) to discuss how this pro-enlightenment, over-written piece of garbage got made. He eve...


11. The Tourist (w/ Gil Ozeri, Natasha Leggero)
When you pair two superstars like Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, what’s the worst that can happen? Apparently it’s The Tourist. Jason lucked out and missed this movie, but Paul, June, and special guests Natasha Leggero and Gil Ozeri are here to discuss the bad accents and lack of chemistry that fill this Golden Globe nominated film. Be sure to check out the newly redesigned Earwolf website where you can buy the Ridiculous Cage shirt and donate to help buy us a new studio. We promise not to spend it on plas...

Minisode Ten
The result of our Facebook poll is in! Did you get confused between the awesome comic and the terrible movie known as Jonah Hex? Did your vote for Mac & Me come with a large Coke and a side of fries?

7. All About Steve (w/ Brandon Johnson)
Sorry for the delay with this episode, but it takes a while to fully comprehend All About Steve. Paul, Jason, June, and special guest Brandon Johnson tried their hardest, but still couldn’t figure out how this mildly racist, poorly structured, bizarrely performed movie got made. See if you can guess how much money this flop cost to make, and listen for your alternate horror movie titles....


6. Battlefield Earth (w/ Rob Huebel)
It is rumored that Battlefield Earth contains subliminal messages designed to brainwash people into joining The Church of Scientology. If so, Paul, Jason, June, and Rob Huebel are the smartest, most able-minded people ever to sit down and suffer through it. If you share Jason’s rage at the inconsistency of this film or Rob’s anger at the extreme un-sexiness of the characters, than you must join us for this celebration of awfulness. Plus, listen to hear if your Razzie category was selected. Keep sending in y...

4. The Last Airbender (w/ Jon Daly)
Some movies are so bad they’re good, some are so bad they’re bad, and then there’s The Last Airbender. It’s the story of the lil’ Avatar that could, and is riddled with enough racism and weird dialogue to disorient you for days. Jon Daly somehow got roped into the torture of this movie, and joins Paul, June, and Jason to work through the pain. Listen to hear if your back-handed compliment was used, and leave us comments on Earwolf and Facebook if you can explain the whole moon princess storyline....

1. Burlesque (w/ Nick Kroll)
