Car Movie Review: Michael Keaton’s “Gung Ho”

Well, you know it would happen sometime. We finally reviewed the car movie starring Michael Keaton and Long Duck Dong, and it’s glorious! A fictional Japanese Automotive company decided to expand production into the US in the mid 1980’s…..a lot like the actual companies really did.  And the Japanese have a wholly different work ethic than do regular old Union US Auto Workers.  And that’s true – or was back then. And a well intentioned but perpetually lucky Union Leader talks them into saving an abandoned US automotive plant that was the center of their town. The Japanese agreed, but only if the plant could be run with kaizen; a process of continuous improvement and dedication to work above all else.  So….that didn’t work at all.  But in the end, to save the plant, and save the town, the Japanese and the Americans work together to make something great….and by that, I mean the effort, not the cars.  8 Corndogs!

Classic Dukes Review: S2E1
“Days of Shine and Roses”
When NHRA Top Fuel superstar Clay Millican says, this is the episode of the Dukes I want to review….you say, “how high!” And then you say, “Yessir!” This classic Dukes of Hazzard episode features the finest early era of the Dukes – with Boss and Jesse trying to prove once and for all who is the best moonshine driver. And that means racing a ’68 Camaro against a ’68 Mustang, both loaded with moonshine cargo, through the territory of the evil Sheriff Spike Loomis – and back – without getting caught. Along the way we get classic Hollywood western bar flies, Catherine Bach at her most stunning, Disney Ranch at it’s most classic, and bootlegger turns that’ll rip your leaf spring out. 10 Perfect Corndogs!

You knew it would happen some time: “Shake and bake!” “If you ain’t first, you’re last!” “I am a semi professional race car driver and am amateur tattoo artist.” “Don’t snort those Lucky Charms.” If there is one racing movie that is as often (or perhaps more) quoted than Days of Thunder, it’s Talladega Nights! Listen in or our full review of perhaps the dumbest, most magical, most wonderful racing movie ever made that was pitched to – and purchased by – a major motion picture studio with nothing other than the following words: “Will Ferrell as a NASCAR Driver.”

Classic Dukes Review: S2E23
“Southern Comfurts”
K&F Dukes Summary: All that you need to know about this episode is two things. First, we are going to get to the bottom of what a second cousin twice removed is, because on the Dukes in Season 2 that seems to be the clear sailing point for everyone wanting to hook up with everyone. Second, this is the episode with the green General Lee in it. And after a deep drive on this episode I think we can all conclude that the only reason the General is green in this episode is……(insert made up reason here). Anyway, the dukes 2nd cousins get rich and sell their land for a fortune, thanks for Jesse’s shrewd negotiating. To thank him they bring presents to Hazzard before starting on their way to a new life. In the midst though, the money gets stolen and the General lee gets painted green. Kinda dumb, yet kinda fantastic. The end.

Forever Young

K&F Movie Summary from Episode 145: This is a full review of the 1992 Mel Gibson movie, Forever Young. This is the one where Mel is a test pilot in 1939, gets cryogenically frozen for a year to avoid the pain watching his girlfriend die in a hospital slowly, and then waked up over 50 years later to find out he was abandoned by everyone he knew and loved. Only he wasn’t…..and if you love history, romance, flying, and Chargers you’ll absolutely love this movie. The audio alone is with your time. Yes….we believe the last “Sound Stage” General Lee is the car in this movie, and yes, that’s the primary reason we reviewed it. However, this movie gets a Perfect 10 from ALL OF US for just being a great, fun, enjoyable story to watch and enjoy!

OK….with that said, the deep dive on the Chargers in this film is somewhat exhaustive and definitely sickening. We can absolutely say FOR SURE that there were two Generals used in the movie, as documented in the episode. Remember, Warner Brothers kept the “Sound-Stage” car as well as one Hero car.  The Sound Stage car was a ’68 Charger faked to look like a ’69 (grille and taillight changes), and the Hero car was a ’69. We feel pretty certain that the ’68 was used for the bulk of the movie….except for two interior scenes.

Remember these words: DOME LIGHT.

K&F Movie Summary – SPOILERS AHEAD:

We saw it! Ryan Gosling plays the Fall Guy in the big screen movie. Any of our fears about this ruining a beloved TV tale about stunts and jump trucks were wrong! The movie is great and while it might be a one and done it could certainly feature sequels too! Gosling plays the Colt Seavers, a Hollywood stunt man that ends up having to solve a mystery, while jumping trucks and doing stunts. Sound familiar?

Colt ends up being nearly killed during the opening movie-within-a-movie stunt (that Gosling really did) due to sabotage by the jealous star that he’s doubling. It breaks his confidence and takes him away from the career (and woman) that he loves. But, when Jody the camera girl becomes Jody the director of the biggest baddest stunt movie ever to be made….he comes out of retirement to get it done. And save the relationship. And solve the mystery of the leading man that was dead…..or was he? In it are thrown in intentional meta references, sound effects and songs that will make your hears sing, aliens that make you laugh, all leading to the good guy winning in the end with the help of the girl….and a brown and gold GMC truck.

Get to the theater NOW to see it on the real big screen. You’ll probably need to go twice.

But that’s not important right now, because this is the episode were we discuss the eternal question: if you believe in heaven, can you buy or earn your way in? Well Boss believes in heaven…and when he mistakenly is told he’s dying, but tries to right all of his wrongs by doing good deeds to earn his salvation. And when he finds out he isn’t dying later, he takes all of his good deeds back. There aren’t a lot of stunts in this episode…..but there’s a LOT to discuss. This may be the most morality questioning episode of the Dukes that’s ever been made!
