Paid in Puke S5E2: Showgirls

On this episode, we’re keeping it sleazy with Paul Verhoeven’s 1995 accidental camp classic, Showgirls, starring Elizabeth Berkeley and Gina Gershon. This movie is quite figuratively one long Hot Prob with one or two Not Probs of note, contributed by the talented cast.

To get to the bottom of things, we’re joined by a very special guest: the oft-referenced Baxter BFF, Faye Hoerauf!

You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll flail! You’ll puke!

On the Lunchtime Poll, we discuss possible interpretations of the Doggy Chow scene and reveal weird things we ate as a kid.

Paid in Puke S2E2: Bound

Bound episode image

It’s no joke how well Bound holds up. Released in the golden year of American cinema, 1996, Lana and Lilly Wachowski’s lesbian crime thriller is a refreshing gem in a sea of films about women who get punished for standing up to men. With a (mostly) smart script, some fun scenery chewing from Joey Pants and Chris Meloni, and of course, the goddesses that are Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon, we give Bound 0 Pukes (on a scale of 0-5, 5 being the worst).

PLUS: We all try our hand at Jennifer Tilly impressions and we reveal our personal skills that Violet could exploit to lure us into her apartment (if we were lucky enough to garner her attention in the elevator).
