A special guest (Darren Hayes) pops in...who could it be? (Darren Hayes)? Adam Baldwin and Chuck Liddell join Hughes alum, Frank Whaley for a cameo bonanza, Bueller gets referenced, and Tim pleasures zombies. John Hughes' favorite slur returns. Enjoy! Last Hughes Movie!

Maid in Manhattan (Jennifer Lopez, Ralph Fiennes, Natasha Richardson, Stanley Tucci, Tyler Posey, Frances Conroy, Amy Sedaris, Marissa Matrone, Bob Hoskins) is our movie of the week, when we watch the second to last Edmond Dantes film. The guys talk about pepperoni, strange extras, and Tim has some suggestions for J. Lo's hair. Chris and Anthony questionably recreate a missing scene, and we find out that a job in management is practically unattainable. Anthony remembers the one time he attended a high school, film award ceremony. Some call us the state assemblyman of podcasts, some call us, "too young".

Tim's 16-year-old cousin, James, stops by for a podcast about the Ed Helms and Christina Applegate led Vacation (Skylar Gisando, Steele Stebbins, Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, Beverly D'Angelo, Chevy Chase, Charlie Day, Ron Livingston, John Francis Daley) continuation. We don't spoil this one for you since it's still in theaters, so SAFE LISTENING AHEAD! We talk about the current state of bullying in high school, Anthony talks about the current state of Linda Cardellini, and Sigmund Freud pops in to give some much needed analysis. Adam Scott Aukerman may have snagged a big fish when U2 visited U Talkin' U2 To Me? last week, but someone equally important to our show visits us from beyond the grave.

The guys dust off the old VCR to welcome comedian and actress, Julie Birke, to the show for a movie they wish never existed, Reach the Rock (William Sadler, Alessandro Nivola, Brooke Langton, Norman Reedus). Time doesn't just stop during Hughes' last 90s venture, it dies. Julie and Anthony talk about Scream. Julie and Anthony talk about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Julie and Anthony talk about Friends. Tim listens patiently. Tread lightly, because "spoiler alert", we spoil everything. And remember to shed those layers when you go for your inebriated, midnight swims.

Anthony starts the show off in a drive time fashion to welcome their guest, Chris Kleckner. In honor of this years' Ed Helms and Christina Applegate Vacation reboot, the guys watch the last of the original Griswold adventures, Vegas Vacation (Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Randy Quaid, Ethan Embry, Marisol Nichols, Wallace Shawn, Sid Caesar, Wayne Newton, Jerry Weintraub, Christie Brinkley, Miriam Flynn, Julia Sweeney).

As Just Visiting comes to a close, the guys discuss everything from Peter Schilling's Major Tom (Coming Home) to Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? contrinutors, Rockapella. Tim tells us where mints originated, Bowie humor is the best, and Tara Reid is perfectly cast. Darren's livelihood is saved by a deleted recording, and Bill Cosby find his way into the conversation, yet again. Tim asks the question, "What's with Prince and colors?"

Darren opens the show with an in-depth analysis of the comic relief in Star Wars, then does an impression of a beloved Princess Bride character. It's safe to say, Tim loves Just Visiting (Jean Reno, Christina Applegate, Christian Clavier, Tara Reid, Malcolm McDowell, George Plimpton, Bridgette Wilson, Matt Ross), the other two, not so much. The French language is butchered, a Tone Loc beef is settled, and one of the hosts is related to a Muppet. Later, Tim Tebow's fire still burns bright, and there's a much needed VeggieTales breakdown. Anthony begins writing the next French disco hit. The show closes with foreskin chat.

Tim and Anthony continue their Home Alone 3 conversation with Abra Moore. Tim's in awe of Alex Pruitt's gigantic brain, and Anthony gets distracted by a Chicago Bulls locker. Abra talks about her diary, and Tim shares some of his grandfather's classic entries in his own diary. Boobs escape the boys, and the butt trauma is aplenty. Traps are elevated to a new level, and the topic of horror movies comes up. Anthony remembers a terrifying James Brolin movie from his childhood, and Tim's bedside manner is nonexistent. The trio answers the question: Does height really matter in the dating world? And Anthony relates everything to Friends. Cinefile! Located on Santa Monica Blvd, near the freeway.

Hughes goes John Woo, Sixteen Candles' Haviland Morris returns as a mom, RC Cars reign supreme in the 1990s, and the Pruitt family is obsessed with dat booty. Anthony gets awkward during Robin Williams' Jack, and tells a farfetched story about a recent Uber ride. Abra talks about living on a farm with a duck, and Tim finds a new favorite actor in Darren T. Knaus. The boys' love Cinefile, local video sanctuary, and home to the world's only Chris Elliott section.

A special guest appears at Anthony's door, and Joe Cocker dies for the second time! Tim and Darren try out their bad standup. Serious Michael Jackson talk closes out the show.

This week's movie, Flubber (Robin Williams, Marcia Gay Harden, Christopher McDonald, Ted Levine, Clancy Brown, Wil Wheaton, Edie McClurg, Jodi Benson) angers Tim, excites Darren, and makes Anthony feel nostalgic.

Plus, it's okay to enslave sentient beings created in a lab. Anthony shares a traumatic Halloween experience, and reveals that he's already finished season 3 of Orange Is the New Black.

Tim and Anthony welcome Tony Czech to the show for this week's 101 Dalamatians (Glenn Close, Jeff Daniels, Hugh Laurie, Joely Richardson, Joan Plowright, Mark Williams) episode. Before they recap the movie, Anthony reads a list of director Stephen Herek's most influential films, including The Mighty Ducks and the unapologetic Mark Wahlberg vehicle, Rock Star. Tony defends NCIS, Anthony has a bone to pick with CSI, and Tim can't wrap his head around the number of dogs in the movie. Two of the guys have their world rocked, when they learn about Clarence Carter and his 1985 hit, "Strokin'". Glenn Close survives a vat molasses, and delivers a number of maniacal laughs.

This week, we watch John Hughes' 1994 box office bomb, Baby's Day Out (Joe Mantegna, Lara Flynn Boyle, Joe Pantoliano, Cynthia Nixon, Fred Thompson, Eddie Bracken, Matthew Glave), a movie Tim has waited this entire show to see, but first he weighs in on Miracle on 34th Street. The show includes an impressive gorilla suit, genital mutilation, and a Baby named Bink. Darren discovers a failed Baby's Day Out video game, and Tim has a grand old time. John Hughes loves Looney Tunes, and Anthony can't stand babies. The show ends with a chat about wealth and charity.

Darren and Anthony watch the 1994 remake of Miracle on 34th Street (Elizabeth Perkins, Dylan McDermott, Richard Attenborough, Mara Wilson, James Remar, Jane Leeves, Jennifer Morrison), but first they shoot out some short feelings about Tomorrowland, and David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars. The show stumbles into flatulence talk. Darren shares an online run-in with Mara Wilson, and Daryl Hall shares an intimate moment with all of us. Anthony reminisces about the Jurassic Park trilogy, and claims that acting is just a whole lot of one particular bodily function. The movie takes both men by surprise.

Plus, Joe Pesci speaks like a rabid dog.

Jeff Galante is this week's guest when we watch Beethoven (Charles Grodin, Bonnie Hunt, Stanley Tucci, Oliver Platt, David Duchovny, Patricia Heaton) a movie that John Hughes was so proud of, he wrote it under the pen name Edmond Dantes. We talk dog destruction, being bullied, invasive thermometers, and omniscient canines. Anthony shares an odd dream, and Tim and Jeff try to break down the thought process of the film's ammunition manufacturers. We suffer a slight microphone mishap in the last ten minutes of the show. We're sorry. But we push through the crap, just like John Hughes did throughout most of the 90s and 2000s.

This week we mess up the order, and watch Dennis the Menace (Lea Thompson, Walter Matthau, Christopher Lloyd, Joan Plowright, Mason Gamble, Robert Stanton). The guys debate bathing etiquette while babysitting, Darren exposes his backside, and Anthony recently watched The Babadook. Honarable mentions to Gilligan's Island, Leave it to Beaver, and Dobie Gillis. Dave Navarro's hit SPIKE TV show, Ink Master, is mentioned, and the show wraps with a heated E.T. discussion. Are those welcoming aliens at the end of E.T. his parents, botanists, or parent botanists? You decide! Damage to your nether regions is unavoidable.

We forgo the Hughes this week to watch The Phantom Menace with someone that doesn't care about Star Wars as dearly as we do, Claire Stanton. Holy crap, turn up the volume, because Richard makes an appearance. We rundown the movie, Claire thinks there's something fishy about that Palpatine guy, and Watto impressions get a lot of play. Opinions on podracing and E.T. divide the gang, but get overshadowed by prequel disappointment. It's not all bad though! The guys give mad respect to George Lucas, and talk about how optimistic they are about the upcoming, J.J. Abrams helmed trilogy. Claire finds fault with Queen Amidala's disguise, and everyone misses Darth Vader. To close, we go around the table and speak about Star Wars, from the heart.

This week, we watch Curly Sue (Jim Belushi, Alisan Porter, Kelly Lynch, John Getz, Fred Thompson, Steve Carell) with the very funny Jasmine Elist. Tim straps on his overalls for a show that  begins with disparaging comments about a 10 year old, ends with disparaging comments about a 10 year old, and is filled with disparaging comments about said 10 year old. Jasmine is mesmerized by one man, a hand, and a crack, plus she tells the guys the secret song she sings to herself at night. A review is read, and the show ends with an odd connection between Alisan Porter and Adam Lambert. Get well soon, Darren Hayes!

You've been asking for it, and after months of deliberation, we've decided to give it to you. Darren Hayes hosts the show! Our fearless leader takes us through Dutch (Ed O'Neill, Ethan Embry, JoBeth Williams, Christopher McDonald, EG Daily), and develops another crush on the films' star. The guys talk about going to London, visiting a variety of friendly orifices, and Tim's curse when he handles himself. Darren shares some of the "pranks" he developed as a miscreant youth, and everyone stereotypes male flautists. Finally, the guys talk about the future of the show, and what you can look forward to.

The guys wrap up their Career Opportunities (John Hughes, Jennifer Connelly, Frank Whaley, Dermot Mulroney, John Candy) conversation with Chris Laxamana (host of Carolla Digital's Resume) and acclaimed audio engineer, Trevor Yasuda (Lana Del Rey, The Great Gatsby). Everyone struggles to find something they like about the movie and Chris brings up the unnecessary pressure put on charitable baseball players. Darren and Anthony disagree about the Freudian undertones behind a key scene involving a coin opertated rocking horse. And Despite Darren's hostility towards Anthony, the gang agrees with Trevor; they are all Mr. Hayes' humble Savage Gardeners. Jennifer Connelly continues to be respected.
