1987. An underrated year in film where classics like Robocop, The Princess Bride, Moonstruck and several others came out. Yet, for this week’s Double Edged Double Bill all about the year, the two films of focus aren’t the most familiar favorites. As Adam and Thomas discuss them, you’ll hear exactly why. First, Richard E. Grant makes his film debut in the dingy drunken comedy Withnail and I! Then, John Ritter encounters aliens and shootouts with Jim Belushi in the very odd buddy film Real Men! Together, our duo answers some crucial questions. Why do certain jokes from 1987 not hold up? What is the cinematic legacy of Jim Belushi? Which two films will they choose for next week’s episode on low budget films? Well, grab a pint and try to avoid shootouts before lunch so you can listen to find out!
