Auteur Theory

Dec 17, 2019

This week, Nick and Chris are joined by Jeff Gordon of Zia Records to take a look at Ron Howard's re-teaming with Michael Keaton for the 1986 comedy Gung-Ho. A slapstick-satire of the culture clash between working-class heartland Americans and the emerging Japanese corporate culture - this one was a staple of VHS video stores and mid-afternoon cable back in the 80s and 90s. But how well does it hold up in 2019?

Join Nick, Chris, and Jeff to find out if Howard and Keaton of the 80s in a modern cultural climate pull off a laugh-fest, or a cringe-fest.
