You’d think that the comedic prowess of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the acting talents of Sinbad, and the star power of a Jim Belushi cameo would make for the ultimate Christmas movie! Instead we have an illogical and unbelievable commercial masked as a movie. Join the How Did This Get Made? crew and Joe Mande for this bonus holiday episode and listen in to hear if your Eardrop made it! Happy Holidays!

Halle Berry is an Oscar winner, Catwoman is a beloved comic book icon, and Sharon Stone is the perfect villain. It would be tough to screw this movie up, but lo and behold! We watched Catwoman with Jamie Denbo and despite the occasional girl power messages and sometimes amusing witticisms, it revealed itself as an over CGI’d, poorly scripted, oddly dated mess. Tune in to hear your Eardrops and make sure you listen to our bonus minisode out today!

As long as they keep making awful adaptations of awesome comic books, we will continue to watch them! We want you to watch Catwoman with us and act out your own Gotham City scenes on Eardrop. Our favorite drop will be played on the podcast so include @PaulScheer in your tweet!

We’re very fortunate to have two experts this week joining us to discuss The Room. First off we have Steve Heisler from The AV Club who has made it his journalistic duty to learn everything he can about this disaster. Also joining us is Mark (Oh, hi Mark!), aka Greg Sestero who also worked behind-the-scenes as a producer. Tuxedo football, outdoor green screens, unnecessary double casting, Mark knows how it all came to be and he’s here to share it all with us. Enjoy!

We watched Leprechaun in the Hood, as you probably expected we would. Kumail Nanjiani is our guest, and he put this bad movie to the test. I realize these rhymes aren’t great, but this movie isn’t exactly first rate. Contain your howls and shrieks, and we’ll see you back here next week!

Is Aubrey a piano prodigy or a stripper? Is it all real or a piece of creative writing? Is this the worst movie Lindsay Lohan has ever been in or flat out the worst movie ever? These are just a few of the questions I Know Who Killed Me left us with. Ken Marino is our victim this week and he helps Paul, June, and Jason piece together the plot, characters, and ridiculous symbols that make this horror thriller such a bomb. Enjoy, and be sure to pick up your tickets to How Did This Get Made? LIVE at Largo on November 15th!
