Episode 595: Our 1988 Favorites

It's always an honor and a pleasure to welcome back one of our absolute favorites and a spot of true class on our little show... and since Jenn Novotny was not available, we called upon our beloved Jennifer Kaufman as this week's #FanboySummer winner loser participant! (we kid, we kid... we love Kaufman)

First up, lots of birthday movies from the previous 5, 10, 20 and so on years -- including the original The Meg's 5th birthday, 2 Guns 10th birthday, The Fugitive's 30th birthday, and more.

Then, a round of Reel or Unreal, as the crew tries to guess the names of really bad films few people have heard of.

Finally, a great look at the year in film 1988.  Kaufman gives her reasons for picking this topic, and everyone gives their favorite films from that year including vintage Eddie Murphy... all the actors who were up for the legendary role Bob Hoskins got... the sad  tale of "Yep Yep Yep"... a shout out to Garrison's fave film... Seagal, Ernest, and Chevy all get love from Mikey... and Dr Earl gets pretentious, of course.
