This week, we take on Cherry 2000, a sci-fi movie recommended to us by comedian and former friend Kurt Braunohler. If you like Melanie Griffith and android love, you'll probably still hate this movie. Fortunately, Cameron's around to spark a light in the darkness by pitching the sequel we were all hoping would never happen: Gravity 2. Bring your thinking cap!

Rhea is out this week, but we deliver a spirited review of Olympus Has Fallen at her suggestion, and Ricky really scrapes the bottom of the barrel for a best part of this White House peril movie. Plus, Cameron and Ricky team up to pitch the next great "One Man Job" flick and make billions of dollars. Why didn't we think of this sooner?

We're back this week with a review of Robert Rodriguez's Desperado, which has nothing to do with the song by the Eagles, as far as we can tell. Plus, we're joined by Pop Culture Happy Hour's Glen Weldon to chat about the movie that made him, and we'll help you make the most of this holiday season by suggesting some excellent, sophisticated movie/food pairings.

We present you with a particularly Swayze-heavy show this week, and we feel GREAT about it. A special guest joins us to share the Movie That Made Him, we chat about the action brawler Road House, and we try to solve some real puzzlers. Are "coolers" a thing? Is Jean-Claude Van Damme really that good at splits? Why is Swayze on our minds in such a major way?
