Despite this being a pretty terrible film, I have a lot of affection for both it, and this sketch, as it was the first episode of our podcast we ever recorded. Two overeager and audibly nervous dudes wittering on at excruciating length in to microphones a few hundred miles apart about a film most people have rightly forgotten. We may not have gotten better at it, but we’ve certainly gotten shorter, and that’ll certainly do for me! Kenneth Branagh’s egotistical shirtless goo-thrashing scene remains a total high point. De Niro’s thesping, while incongruous, is also pretty badass when he’s allowed off the leash to go full ham and cheese.
