K&F Movie Summary: Christmas Vacation

The last real family man Clark Griswold himself takes on Christmas. When I saw this movie in the theater in 1989 I was the age of Rusty. Now, I’m the age of Clark. I can relate to Clark….I love the lights, I underestimate a lot of things, and like Clark I just want to give my family the perfect Christmas. This movie spawns from the writing genius of John Hughes and the comedic delivery of Chevy Chase and Randy Quaid. Not only does it have the famous scene with the RV dumping into the street sewer, but it has all of the scenes that you can’t help but watch over and over again! Clark drives under a log truck, then gives a speech in the mall about logs that’ll leave you not seeing the line, his idiot cousin in law shows up to annoy him to death, but that huge beastly bulging man ends up bringing him the gift that Clark really needed – his Christmas bonus, and perspective on what really matters. This one is a mele kaliki mai of a good one and short of having the Baby Jesus in a manger, it has everything else I love about Christmas.

K&F Movie Summary:

Two kids who have lost their dad to tragedy are on the very edge of tragedy themselves…the tragedy of not believing! Teddy the older brother is turning to crime, and Katy the younger sister is innocent. They catch Santa in the act at their house, jump in his sleigh, scare the bejesus out of him, lose the reindeer and the presents, crash the sleigh, steal a red 2009 Dodge Challenger, jump it, end up in jail, then a chop shop, and then have to get it all back together by Christmas morning or the world explodes. Even worse, during the chaos they also lost Santa’s magic hat, which is the think that makes the sleigh fly! At the end though they make it just in time to Save Christmas and Santa finally reveals (in the coolest of Kurt Russell moves) that the hat was a ruse. As Santa Claus himself could (of course) fly the whole time and the whole crazy night was to show Teddy – who was suffering from the loss of his dad – how regain the belief in something himself, and something far bigger. If you’re only in it for the cars, the Challenger shines wonderfully. We believe Four Star Motorsports did the prep….and we THINK we have identified the Canadian stunt driver too!

Happy Thanksgiving! For 2023 our Thanksgiving spectacular is as full of seasonal automotive culture favorites as ever and it starts and ends with the greatest Thanksgiving car movie ever, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. We covered that in depth in the game show, but…..what we’re REALLY after is the cars that made John Hughes movies so memorable for gear-heads like his.

So, in addition to Thanksgiving PTA laced trivia, you can ALSO listen to our full rundown of the Hughes Cars that we developed in Episode 244. If that’s not enough and you have room for more, go back and listen to the original Planted Trains and Automobiles review from Kibbe and Finnegan Show #51!

K&F Show Summary: 

Note: this is a rebroadcast of our Cannonball Run 2 review from KF Episode 250. Enjoy!

To commemorate our 250th episode we bring you Cannonball Run 2. By today’s standards it’s crass, racist, sexist, and a hilariously offensive automotive escape from reality. Back then though, it just was a crass yet hilarious automotive escape from reality. It stars everyone fun and funny from 1984 as you would expect from Burt Reynolds to Don Knotts to Frank Sinatra. If you liked the first Cannonball Run you’ll love this one….because it’s the same movie. Again. The Rigatoni’s and Fettuccine are in the mob, people pretending to be sheiks only because they have big noses, and John Schneider’s personal Lamborghini Countach makes an appearance with Catherine Bach! The cars are as big as the stars and they do what cars do best: slide and fly. This movie was hated by Siskel and Ebert because they hated movies that don’t make you think. But we don’t need to think. We never did. 10-Stars.

K&F Show Summary: 

Happy Hazzard-o-ween! This isn’t a specifically dedicated Halloween episode….but it may as well be. Whilst Bo and Luke are hiding from Rosco they get naked and go skinny dipping…leaving their clothes in the General Lee. Seconds later the General is stolen by two crooked gamblers who jump the car (and the clothes) in the pond. Rosco and Enos assume it was Bo and Luke all along, find their clothes, assume they were dismembered, and hijinks ensue when Boss frames them for theft of ….something. Doesn’t matter what. Anyway, to clear themselves they pretend to still be dead and trick Rosco into believing their spirits inhabit the General Lee, which now glows in the dark and appears to drive by itself. Wrongs are righted and it’s nice, funand spooky Halloween episode all around.

He’s a nice enough guy of course, but at this point he’s trying to help every kid on the planet while simultaneously not having to pay gift tax to the Feds on all of it. The IRS will get everyone, brother!

K&F Show Summary: 

K&F Show Summary: This mid-month episode features a “re-run” of our movie review of Cannonball Run from Episode 85 of the Kibbe and Finnegan Show. Call us lazy, but it’s comedy gold. It also kept us from working too hard this week. Or at all. Enjoy. 

This show features our review of the movie Cannonball Run, but it’s really more of a tribute to the late great Burt Reynolds who passed away a few years ago. We loved Burt’s crazy car movies and Cannonball Run was as zany as it ever got. The premise and screen play were a credit to automotive journalist Brock Yates (who makes a cameo in this movie), and then Burt, Dom DeLuise, and Hal Needham took of from there. Alter ego superheroes, cross-eyed proctologists, inappropriate humor (by today’s standards) and ambulances with straight headers are all you need to know. Thanks for the fun, Burt!

K&F Show Summary: 

Bo and Luke get conned – accidentally – by Cooter – into driving for a bad guy that’s being watched by the stage police, and possibly the feds. What’s he being watched for you ask? Human trafficking? Meth manufacturing and distribution? Ponzi schemes designed to keep little old ladies out of the old folks home and living in the gutter? No….none of those….he’s doing something far worse. This piece of human scum…..is selling…..stolen racing engines! He hides these sweet engines in demo derby cars to transport them out of the county and state, which keeps the feds easily at bay.

Bo and Luke get accused of being a part of it….and they have to drive demo derby cars as a result. And we dear viewers get treated to the sloppy General lee preparation that we love most in this early seasons, including the General Lee I love most – the one they pull up in the race track in. Paul Baxley brings in outstanding camera shots and jumps that would win him an Oscar today, and all is right with the world. 14-inch vectors for everyone!

K&F Show #273: MOPARTY 2023 – Tony Angelo’s Flying 440!

Presented by Holley! This is a special edition of K&F and features a run down of everything we did at Holley Moparty 2023! Visit holley.com for more fun and details (and to shop for EFI!)

We came, we saw, we Mopartied! This event has become THE place for Mopar wackos with gather and enjoy all of the weirdness and greatness that Mopars bring. Its also a great place for people that love to thrash their cars on the dragstrip and autocross! We had a great time seeing and hanging out with listeners, as always. The only bummer of the whole trip is that it wasn’t long enough! We will feature several key interviews from the event on this week’s episode of The MuscleCar Place podcast.

This episode also features the one and only Tony Angelo. We all have known Tony’s escapades through his time with Motor Trend with Lucky Costa on Hot Rod Garage, and today he makes his living on his YouTube channel “StayTuned,” which you should subscribe to yesterday if you haven’t already.

He did make the event in his Dodge 440…..barely….and we were there to catch up and see what happened. We also learned from Tony just how badly Finnegan took the news when Corndog let him go from the podcast. No we feel worse. (Kibbe does. Corndog doesn’t. Bernie is indifferent, but happy to still not have to wear pants.)

K&F Show #272: MOPARTY Schedule Change; Double Feature Dukes Review S3E1 “Carnival of Thrills”

Presented by Holley!

BIG NEWS: MOPARTY is next week. We’ll be there and you should be too! Unfortunately, as announced in this show, due to no fault of James Smith there will no long be a General Lee jump or stunt show at the event. All other activities are on as planned, however.

https://moparty.com. We will see you there!

The Dukes of Hazzard – at the absolute height of it’s popularity and power bring us a double length episode featuring a plethora of terribly painted General Lee’s, a seriously annoying manipulative woman, Dukes fighting Dukes, and a lesson on parenting only Uncle Jesse could give. The Dukes go see a Joe Chitwood stunt show. (It’s not called that in the show directly for marketing reasons, but that’s what it is.) The show is run by it’s second generation owner Diane, a woman who will cuddle up to any man who be be her star attraction driver. When the most recent guy nearly gets killed she suckers Bo into being the next man in. Luke sees through it, Bo gets hot headed and punches everyone in the way, and Uncle Jesse is left to guide a situation he cannot stop, but must direct before his family explodes. Boss and the lead carnival guy both try to kill the General Lee in the process and fail, but the General does what he does best; gives his boys a fighting chance to win the day…and they do by making the 32 car jump.

BIG NEWS: The fall events at Holley are just around the corner and Holley MOPARTY is less than 60 days away. We’ll be there and you should be too! We are ONCE AGAIN the media partner for the General Lee jump, too!

Visit this website RIGHT NOW to get details and tickets: https://moparty.com. We will see you there!

K&F Show Summary: Finally – the political Dukes episode we’ve been waiting for! Kinda. If there was an episode that could combine Nathan Warren with Ben Jones portraying Cooter, this would be it. Cooter – with God’s blessed skills – steals President Jimmy Carter’s car.Bo and Luke get him out of it, but not before using their smoking hot cousin to position herself as a faux-prostitute to distract the bad guys. Who are the bad guys in this one you ask? Boss Hogg – who has a car theft and chop shop ring. And Boss thinks his guys stole the car and wants it recovered to meet Jimmy Carter personally, but in the end it’s Uncle Jesse that gets the call of thanks from the Oval Office. And before the episode is over we will once and for all know whether Boss and Uncle Jesse are Republicans or Democrats. The 2024 Presidential race had nothing on this!
