6/17/18 Episode 106: Fake Out (1982)



Listen to the Let's Watch A Full-Length Movie on YouTube podcast and watch Fake-Out (1982), aka Nevada Heat, embedded above, at the same time. Start with the podcast. Click here to launch the podcast in separate browser tab.

Pia Zadora is known by bad movie fans for her films, Butterfly (1982) and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964). It's a pity, she should be known for Fake-Out as well.

In Fake-Out, Pia's boyfriend is a bad guy, so the cops imprisons her. After a prison shower scene, the cops then move her to a Las Vegas casino as boyfriend bait.  Here, the movie and Pia loosen up and kick it with lounge lizard cast-mates Desi Arnaz, Jr, Telly Savalas (looking comfortable in a casino), Telly's brother George, and Larry Storch as a drug dealer offering "killer smoke."

Even though Pia plays a Vegas nightclub performer, Fake-Out focuses less on her performance and more on the nightclub. Winds up her then-IRL boyfriend and film producer owned the Rivera, where indoor car chases occur. The casino even gets a great mention in the end credits:
The production is indebted to the Riviera Hotel for its many considerations and extends you a cordial invitation to visit and enjoy its newly remodeled facilities.
Pass.

Honestly, I only selected this movie because it was on YouTube. Might interest completists of exuberantly bad Cuba Golding, Jr. movies from the Nineties. Paul Hogan is very similar to Mike Myers, in that his movies are based around a character he inhabits. Can't remember a thing from this movie. 

Paul Brumbaugh, our countdown man himself, is our special co-host.

6/3/18 Episode104: Weekend with the Babysitter (1970)



Listen to the Let's Watch A Full-Length Movie on YouTube podcast and watch Weekend with the Babysitter (1970), embedded above, at the same time. Start with the podcast. Click here to launch the podcast in separate browser tab.

Co-host Carl is out this week, so I'm joined once again by the terrific comedian Susan Maletta, who really hates this movie. Thanks to his wife and child leaving him, a man with a mid-life crisis hangs out with the babysitter for the weekend. He meets hippies and smokes weed and goes to the races and, yes, bangs the babysitter!

Director Don Henderson had shot a similar movie one year prior, called The Babysitter (1969) with the same male lead and the babysitter character having the same name. But in The Babysitter, the father was an Assistant District Attorney, while in Weekend with the Babysitter, he's a film director. Say no more, Don!

5/20/17 Episode 102: The Fat Spy (1966)



Listen to the Let's Watch A Full-Length Movie on YouTube podcast and watch The Fat Spy (1966), embedded above, at the same time. Start with the podcast. Click here to launch the podcast in separate browser tab.

So far, if anyone asks, my favorite movie watched on this podcast is Rat Pfink a Boo Boo (1966), a hodge-podge of Sixties pop culture that barely constitutes as a movie. Pfink has its spiritual partner with The Fat Spy (1966), an incomplete film that hodge-podges James Bond parodies with beach movie musicals. A businessman wants the Fountain of Youth, located in Florida (where the film was shot), but a boatload of teenagers have just sailed over to the location, ready to party. Businessman calls in The Fat Spy (Jack E. Leonard, in a dual role) to prevent the kids from discovering the Fountain. The kids sing and one shirtless white guy has a giant bird tattooed on his chest. A boy falls in love and serenades a mermaid. He gets very lonely when the mermaid leaves him.

Phyllis Diller mugs every line of her dialogue, while Jayne Mansfield talks like the Valley Girl daughter in Joysticks (1983). Due to budget reasons, film ends with a cliffhanger, written on a text placard .
