EP. 339.1 — Matinee Monday: Gymkata LIVE! (w/ Michael Showalter)

Michael Showalter (The Dropout, Search Party) joins Paul, June, and Jason to discuss the next level bonkers movie that combines gymnastics and karate— 1985’s Gymkata! They get into Kurt Thomas flipping while he talks to himself, the questionable effectiveness of arrows, flag ninjas, the Village of the Crazies, and the infamous pommel horse scene. Plus, the audience Q&A makes us wonder how the director of Enter The Dragon went from working with Bruce Lee to Kurt Thomas. (Originally Released 08/27/2013)
