08/07/2016 Episode 10: Slapstick (of Another Kind) (1982)
Another kind of slapstick what? I want to help you sit through the movie Slapstick (of Another Kind) but the title doesn't help.
Proudly Resents podcaster Adam Spiegelman (and my brother) try to help, too, but it sounds like we're eating hot peppers. The movie's unwatchable.
This cultural collision of Jerry Lewis and the Kurt Vonnegut novel Slapstick has Lewis and Madeline Kahn play the dual roles of parents and their extra-terrestrial twins.
Theatrically released in Europe in 1982, it haunted American VHS rental stores a few years later. It comes after Hardly Working (1980) for Jerry (which Adam and I covered on his podcast).
