We unironically love Smokey and the Bandit and Cannonball Run, so you might think we'd be really enthusiastic about watching any movie directed by former stuntman Hal Needham and starring moustache-enthusiast and one-time box office superstar Burt Reynolds. Well, there are a couple problems with that theory. Firstly, it's only been about half a year since we sat through another Hal Needham flick called Rad, and we haven't fully healed. Secondly, this movie is about NASCAR, and -- surprise! -- that's not really our thing. Thirdly, Burt Reynolds himself cites this film has "the one where I lost them". That doesn't sound good. Burt's love interest is played by Loni Anderson, who he later married; in this film, he contemplates sexually assaulting her while she sleeps. That doesn't sound great either. And instead of Dom DeLuise, Burt's sidekick is Gomer Pyle. Oooooh boy. This one's gonna be tough.

Howling 2: Your Sister Is a Werewolf (1985)

This is not the worst movie we've ever seen, but it just might be the stupidest. Are we really supposed to believe that antagonist Stirba (played by Battle Beyond the Stars star Sybil Danning) is 10,000 years old -- putting her birth date somewhere near the end of the Stone Age? If monster hunter Christopher Lee is her brother, as a late-movie twist briefly reveals, then does that mean he's thousands of years old too? Why is it so important to kill Stirba, when all she seems to want to do is have werewolf orgies? Why do those orgies seem to be basically sexless and take days? Why do the protagonists go from being bland acquaintances to lovers in the span of an afternoon, and why is a Transylvanian village of nothing but werewolves just allowing them to hang around uneaten? Not a single scene in this movie makes any damn sense, and it is fantastic. Strongly recommend.

Sylvester Stallone (Rhinestone) and Rutger Hauer (Blind Fury) star in this adaptation of the beloved Edward Hopper oil painting (not really) that was originally intended to be the third Popeye Doyle movie (that one's true). Stallone plays a decoy cop, dressing up like a lady to lure New York's ever-present muggers, until he and partner Billy Dee Williams are recruited to track down Wulfgar (Hauer), a terrorist based on Carlos the Jackal. But this time, to get the bad guy...he just might have to dress up like a lady. This is Stallone near the height of his popularity and Hauer's first American role, so the burning question is: how have we never heard of this movie? Is it just that terrible? Let's find out together, brave listener.

It was only a matter of time before Eddie Murphy became the subject of our podcast. His peak was so high that people still basically respect him, even though he's spent the last twenty years starring in dreck like Norbit and Meet Dave, always, inexplicably, playing multiple characters. Here he co-stars with our favorite pussycat Rosario Dawson and Freaked star Randy Quaid, and a whole lot of other people who would prefer you forget they were in this. But is it schlock? Tune in to find out, true believers.

There's a strong possibility that we would have added Shakma to our list on the basis of its hysterical trailer alone, even if it didn't also happen to be the premiere animal-attacking-everyone thriller that is also about LARPing, but we'll never know. Favorite ape Cornelius plays a professor to a cast of medical students that includes the guy from Blue Lagoon and also Nancy's friend from A Nightmare on Elm Street. They're all inexplicably engaged in a partly-computerized LARP inside the very same building where they, also inexplicably, just injected a baboon with rage serum. "Well, it usually inhibits aggression, but...sometimes it has the opposite effect," explains one future victim, quite scientifically. If you always wanted to see a bunch of LARPers get picked off one-by-one by an enraged primate, well...I don't know why you're only just now hearing about this movie.
