It's been pretty well established that the gang enjoys an entertaining terrible flick but the film that Sam inflicts on the Geek Out trio this week may be a bridge too far. Since the runaway success of 48 Hrs. and Lethal Weapon, Hollywood has been coming up with action team-ups for years but in 1997 they may have inadvertently created the greatest team-up of all time: Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman in the action flick Double Team. For Sam, it's a not-so-guilty pleasure, for Chris and Jake, it's a cinematic slog through hell. Sam and Chris attempt to turn all the Rodman-centric basketball references into a drinking game. Jake tries to remind Sam to suspend his disbelief. And the gang keeps track of all the blatant product placement and excuses to insert a tiger into the proceedings. Only one more week of shitty movies until we actually get to some good stuff after this, guys...
