229 – Fargos

Anybody want to go to Fargo, eh? ’40 Going On 14′ does and we’re going to bring William H. Macy and Martin Freeman with us!

The Coen Brothers crime driven comedy stole all of the box office numbers and awards in 1996. In 2014 to now, the television version has seemed to be doing the same. It’s just proof that a good story and characterizations can surpass time and mediums.

If you like your storytelling darkly comedic, then this is going to be a show you don’t want to miss. Not too mention, who doesn’t love talking in that accent!

141 – The Bad News Bears

Take me out to the ballgame! Take me out to the crowd!

With that being said, it’s time for some bad news, kids. ‘The Bad News Bears’!

We’re playing 9 innings of foul mouthed, beer swilling, bare knuckle, little league baseball as we take on the 1976 original and pit it against the 2005 remake. Who will come out the victor? All bets are off.

Put some Big League Chew in your mouth and step up to the plate. It’s time for some baseball!

118 – Santa Cons

What do Bob Hope and Billy Bob Thornton have in common? They both slept with Angelina Jolie, but then again who hasn’t? Actually, we’re referring to films featuring Christmas con artists!

This week on ’40 Going On 14′ we watch ‘The Lemon Drop Kid’ from 1951 and ‘Bad Santa’ from 2003. Two very differnt movies, but both involving a holiday heist. If you enjoy your Christmas with a side of cursing, then this may be the episode for you. It’s the gift that keeps on giving and the only Christmas podcast featuring a talking walnut.

Did I mention Tor Johnson? You’re welcome.
