We’re back to finally hang up The Telephone and rip it right out of the wall and throw it out the window. This is truly one of the most perplexing movies we’ve ever covered and as such, this isn’t a usual episode of our show. Why? Well, it’s not all that funny. We spend most of the episode just sort of puzzling out HOW and WHY this is a thing that exists. We discuss the making and distribution of the movie and how it would’ve been a failure even if Whoopi had stuck to the script. We even propose ways it could be better (and even those aren’t very good). It’s a spirited discussion and we hope you enjoy. We’ll try to be funnier next time.
This week on the show we’re answering the call and talking about little-known Whoopi Goldberg oddity The Telephone. We get Whoopi dressed like she’s attending Hogwarts (complete with tiny owl!) and her almost killing a goldfish for no reason. Not too much happens in these first 10 minutes, which sets up the possibility of a really dire rest of the film. We’ll find out either way in Part 2 dropping on Thursday!
