TEASER – Frotcast 454 Toobin On Sorkin



ATTN: THIS IS MERELY A TEASER. FOR THE FULL EPISODE, SUBSCRIBE AT PATREON.COM/FROTCAST!

This week on the Frot, we’re talking about the hot new Sacha Baron Cohen project currently setting the internet wags on fire. That’s right, I’m talking about The Trial Of The Chicago 7, Aaron Sorkin’s new Netflix joint about hippies, protests, the radical left, broads who need a good talking to, brave men in uniform, and courtrooms. We discuss Sacha Baron Cohen’s bonkers accent (so strange coming from a guy who has spent his life doing weird accents in real-life situation) and the filmography of Aaron Sorkin in general. Sorkin had it all with this project — Boomer heroes, courtroom drama, a packed cast, a premise generally far less obnoxious than The Newsroom… his whole wheelhouse. After years of giving him a hard time we were so ready to finally give him his due. And yet he even managed to make this one kind of annoying at the end.

Before that, we discuss this week’s top story. That’s right, I’m talking about Jeffrey Toobin cranking his hog on a Zoom call. You’d think that would be the perfect joke for at least a week, but now, the internet had to quickly separate into warring camps of which teachable moment this incident best represents. But you remember the Frotcast rule: no hugging, no learning, only lumming. Finally, it’s an episode worth paying a premium for. No refunds.


Teaser – Frotcast 449: Russell Crowe Is Unhinged



I’s that time of the week again. The time when you can subscribe to our Patreon over at Patreon.com/Frotcast to hear our latest Frot.

In this installment, Matt and I discuss Unhinged, starring Russell Crowe as a road-raging psychopath who kiiinda seems like a more actually-homicidal version of Alex Jones. Before we get into that, we talk about the best names for next year’s Name Of The Year Draft that we came across this week, as well as the latest news in the movie world, like Olivia Wilde getting tapped to direct a Marvel movie and Guillermo Del Toro doing a stop-motion Pinocchio musical for Netflix. As the internet’s foremost source of factual movie news and not bad Irish accents or improvised songs about eating butt, you will probably love it. And we love you! Provided you go to Patreon and sign up. No refunds.


TEASER: Frotcast 442, A Terrible Tales From NPR, Plus Eurovision Review, Now Available on Patreon



Howdy! This episode is just a tease, like your sister, but the full episode is available to our Patreon subscribers at Patreon.com/Frotcast. It would be so sick if you became one. So sick, dude. Seriously.

[Full Episode Description]

Hello faithful Frotcast listeners! It’s time for your weekly refill of content slop and I can’t wait for you to dig in. This week, your slop chefs Vince and Matt have served up hot steaming pile of conversations about the brand new Netflix comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga starring Will Ferrel and Rachel McAdams. I don’t wanna spoil the conversation for you but Matt and Vince very much enjoyed the movie and now are hoping to someday move to Iceland and start a new life together. But that’s just a dream.

Anyway, they also talk about reports that Christopher Nolan doesn’t let people sit, Mel Gibson said some bonus anti-semitic shit, tales from NPR and so much more. So dip your fat fucking snouts in that and try not to drown in that shit. Compliments to the chefs.


TEASER: Frotcast 441, Laremy Is Ir-RESIST-ible



THE FULL VERSION OF THIS FROTCAST IS AVAILABLE FOR OUR PATRONS. BECOME ONE AT PATREON.COM/FROTCAST, AND ENJOY ALL OF OUR BONUS #CONTENT.

This week on the Frotcast, ex-film critic, author of ‘Film Critic,’ and star of ‘Whoop Dreams’ Laremy Legel rejoins Matt and Vince in the Zoom Frotquarters to discuss Jon Stewart’s new movie IRRESISTiBLE, starring  Steve Carell and Rose Byrne as dueling political consultants who wage proxy war in a Wisconsin town. At first we were like “why the hell is this movie called ‘Irresistible?’ But then the title comes up at the end with some creative typography and we were like “Oohhh, that’s why it’s called Irresistible.”

Aaaanyway, we discuss our historic love of Jon Stewart and debate why this movie is getting such bad reviews. On one level, it’s kind of a good movie masquerading as a bad one for two acts, and you could argue that’s a weird move, but on another level it seems like certain people disliked it because it committed some sin against media orthodoxy by pointing out the Democrats are also bad. GRR, BOTH SIDESISM! Anyway, Rose Byrne is great.

After that we discuss Matt getting mistaken for the worst #resistance grifter and whether Alex Jones is actually Dan Carlin’s Wario.

Teaser: King Of Staten Island Bonus Review, Plus JK Rowling And Ice Cube



This week’s Frotcast is available on Patreon! Subscribe now to hear the rest of this show and a veritable mountain of bonus content. You can add our premium content to your regular podcast feed! Subscribe at Patreon.com/Frotcast, tell your friends.

In this week’s bonus Frotcast, I had to watch The King Of Staten Island because I’m a movie critic so I forced Matt to watch it with me. Sometimes being a movie critic doesn’t feel like work and other times Spike Lee and Judd Apatow both release 140-minute+ movies on the same weekend. PITY ME! Matt and I discuss Pete Davidson, how this movie could’ve been better, Bill Burr’s shockingly good performance, and why movies always want us to think 20-something year old adult men care who their mom is dating. Gross, man, come on. And then, just when you think we’re through, nope, we got more to talk about. Like, did Ice Cube fall down an Anti-Semitic conspiracy theory rabbit hole this week? And does Just Kidding Rowling, aka JK Rowling coming out as a transphobe retroctively validate us never giving a shit about Harry Potter? There are a couple of accents and everything is pretty dumb but hopefully you don’t have anything better to do and that’s why we love you. Please to enjoy.


TEASER: Frotcast 439, Rounding 4th Base With Both Joeys, Now Available On Patreon



ATTENTION: This full version of this podcast is now available to our Patrons! Become one now at Patreon.com/Frotcast! You can add our premium content to your regular podcast feed!

It’s always a treat for us when one of the several Joes or Joeys we know stops by to talk about movies and life and junk. That’s why this bonus episode of the Frotcast is the sweetest treat of all. This week, Joey Avery and Joey Devine zoom into the Frotquarters to compete for who is the ultimate Frotcast Joey. In many ways, this is your typical episode of the podcast. Unfortunately these are not normal times and protesters have taken to the streets because the police are 🎵still racist after all these years. Therefore, the subject of racist police brutality will be discussed by a bunch of white dudes which is grossly unfair. I’d like to think that we are at the very least doing our duty by discussing our role as white men in a racist society, but maybe that’s just wishful thinking.

Still, I think you’ll enjoy the episode as we talk about any number of subjects including online cancellations, shark pussy, and the national guard handing out old people pardons to Facebook dads who have been recently radicalized. It’s a somber but fun one.


TEASER – More ‘Uncle Bunky’ Stories With The Style Master



Chris Santa Maria’s obituary for his “Uncle Bunky,” which originally ran in the Arizona Republic, went viral last week, thanks to his uncle’s wonderful nicknames (“Mud Flap,” “Style Master”) and catchphrases (“Save it, clown.”). Santa Maria seemed to have a lot more Bunky stories, and a couple people urged me to have him on the Frotcast to tell them all. And that’s basically what I did! So here’s Chris, providing the backstory and all the Uncle Bunky stories (un)fit to print, including the stolen shotgun and getting thrown out of a NASCAR race. You’re welcome, Zeebos.

TEASER: Live Riff of Double Team, Get It On Patreon!



This bonus episode of the FilmDrunk Frotcast is available exclusively to our $20 Patreon subscribers. You can add our premium content to your regular podcast feed!

This month on the Frotcast, for our live riff episode (in which we do commentary over a B-movie, an idea that has never before been attempted), we’ve chosen the 1997 action classic Double Team. It stars the extremely then-current combination of Dennis Rodman and Jean Claude Van Damme — the Worm and The Muscles From Brussels, together at last. Will there be basketball jokes? Will there be an excruciatingly long training montage in which Jean Claude Van Damme does the splits for some reason? Look, I don’t want to spoil it. Joining us this week is your old friend Joe Sinclitico (Adam Devine’s House Party, Comedy Juice).

Double Team, which definitely sounds like a pornographic movie title, is available to stream for free on Showtime or for $2.99 on Amazon Prime. We didn’t want you to have to spend additional money on it but I think you’ll agree that this was a hard target to pass up. Ooh, Hard Target, that’s another solid Van Dmme title.  Fodder for next month’s live riff, perhaps? Anyway, massive thanks to our premium subscribers for whom all this is possible and without whom we would not do it. Tell your dumb friends to subscribe at patreon.com/frotcast, so they too might sup from the goblet of live riffs.


TEASER – Frotcast Bonus: Vince at Sundance



Here is just a taste of our Patreon-Only episode of the Frotcast where Vince goes to Sundance.

Hey frotcast patrons! It’s that time of year again where Vince Mancini leaves the comfort of the Frotquarters and treks on up to Park City, Utah for the very important Sundance Film Festival. This week, Vince regales Matt with tales of the festival and talks about some of the movies he saw including one where Michael Keaton did 9/11 or something. They also talk about Bulletproof 2: the sequel nobody asked for and nobody wanted but was made anyway because that’s just how shit works out sometimes. Listen now!
