Fools Gold Boots
10 November 2020 | by hellraiser7See all my reviews

This is another honorable mention, I'll admit the film they tear apart is an interesting dancing beast indeed as it's this bizarre hybrid of both a musical and a crime drama.

There are plenty of memorable riffs, from a confrontation with some bikers, to a fight scene near the end of the movie. Host segments are really good as usual, this episode has some memorable ones.

Like one which is an honorable mention from Peril is when her assistant Brain Guy is handing Peril the canaster of the film but keeps psyching her on it. Once she grabs it she then bashed Observer in the head with it so many times; ouch though I can emphasize a bit with Peril as even I don't like repeated jokes which get annoying or that aren't all that funny.

But the highlight which is one of my favorite songs from the show is a parody on the singing sing in the film. Mike is singing the song from the film and we constantly see an image of Crow. What makes this segment really fun is it's one of those that constantly build up and get funnier. Mike is so wound up in the song that he's completely oblivious to what's going on in reality as Crow constantly warns Mike about the ongoing fire in the ship.

This is an episode that's comic gold.

Rating: 3 and a half stars
