The Flop House

The Flop House is a bi-monthly audio podcast, devoted to the worst in recent film. Your hosts (Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington) watch a questionable film just before each episode, and then engage in an unscripted, slightly inebriated discussion, focusing on the movie's shortcomings and occasional delights.

It’s Smalltember Small-Stars, with a return to Frank D’Angelo, the Canadian energy drink magnate and bad movie savant behind No Depo$it.

While Elliott’s making the transition into the relaxed SoCal lifestyle, we’re running some shows we have in the bank, like this live show from back in the winter, which may have been our best one yet. Meanwhile, Elliott reveals Hitchcock’s commercial work, Stuart wants us to know that he can do impressions too, and Dan accidentally says something untoward about his mom.

It’s an emotional moment. This is the last regular episode where all three peaches will be in Dan’s apartment recording together, in the same space. It’s also the ten year anniversary of this dumb podcast’s existence. So how did we celebrate it? By taking a look at what was supposedly the worst movie back when we were growing up, Ishtar. Elliott vastly improves “Meet Dave,” Dan somehow misses some nudity, and Stuart talks about a “tug in his butt,” whatever that means. We’re gonna miss this, guys.

It’s the movie that thinks autism is the secret to becoming a John Wick-style super-killer, The Accountant. Meanwhile Elliott details Randy Newman’s difficulty with dirty rhymes, Dan exhausts his knowledge of Zurich, Stuart hates Cheerios, and we all make some probably ill-advised jokes about the murder of Jean Smart.

We watch the dog grief porn A Dog’s Purpose. Meanwhile Dan gets to the bottom of a Lassie mystery, Stuart gives us a hall pass, and Elliott masturbates to rhymes. Apologies for the audio that makes it sound like Stuart is in the other room. We have no idea how that happened.
