Each week the WHM gang force themselves to watch bad movies that were better left forgotten to fuel off-the-wall tangents, inane impressions and unabashed comedic silliness. This is a comedy podcast for movie lovers that can't help but relish pure trash.
On this week's episode, Listener Request Month comes to a close as the gang makes a deal with the world's shortest Satan -- it's The Devil's Advocate! Why does the movie bother having a big reveal scene at the end when we know the entire time that Pacino is the Devil? What is up with Keanu's southern accent? And were all those "paint brush wipe" transitions really necessary? PLUS: Yes, in the late 90s we all thought this film had Oscar-caliber performances in it!
The Devil's Advocate stars Keanu Reeves, Al Pacino, Charlize Theron, Connie Nielsen, Craig T. Nelson, Chris Bauer, Tamara Tunie, and a pre-The Troubles Jeffrey Jones; directed by Taylor Hackford.
