Our Comedy in the 2000s retrospective wouldn't be complete without a healthy dose of transphobia and lighthearted racism! This week on the podcast, we're taking on a pair of stoner comedies that defined the decade's obsession with buddy comedies steeped in gay panic. First up it's "Dude, Where's My Car?" featuring a pre-"Punk'd" Ashton Kutcher and …
 
While comedy in the 90s and 2000s was dominated by male superstars like Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler and the rise of Judd Apatow, studios were slowly warming to the idea that... women can be funny...? This radical concept was put to work a few times throughout the 2000s, but no movie dominated sleepovers in the early aughts quite like "Miss Congenialit…
 
For the second installment of Rotten Comedy in the 2000s, we're checking in with two of the biggest comedy heavyweights of their generation. After dominating comedy in the 90s, Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey were riding high and cashing in on their blank checks in the new millennium. First up, it's the Farrely Brothers follow-up to the massively succe…
 
We’re still steeped in 2000s nostalgia here at the podcast as we kick off our seven week retrospective on comedy in the aughts. An era that began with an overflow of post-"There's Something About Mary" gross-out comedy before transitioning into frat-bro antics in the wake of movies like "Old School" and "Wedding Crashers," before the reign of Apato…
 
Halloween weekend is finally upon us, which means our five week descent into Horror in the 2000s has come to a close. We couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up our miniseries than by checking in on what two of Hollywood’s most prolific boogeymen were up to at the turn of the millennium. Actor Morgan Maher returns to the podcast to discuss 2001’s…
 
The slasher sub-genre was revitalized in 1996 with Wes Craven’s “Scream,” ushering in a whole new era of self-aware slasher films steeped in irony. By the early 2000s though, the genre was on life support yet again. Today, we’re taking a look back at some of the last of the WB-approved era of slasher films with two campy horror flicks that come so,…
 
The only thing more ubiquitous in horror during the 2000s than torture porn was the onslaught of remakes audiences were inundated with throughout the aughts. Some would argue that, along with "Saw," the Michael Bay school of low budget, gritty, ultraviolent and "realistic" remakes set the tone for horror for at least a decade. Today, we'll be looki…
 
While torture porn and hard-R reboots of 70s classics were capturing the mood of the Bush-era, the PG-13 horror movie was still thriving throughout the 2000s. After the success of M. Night Shyamalan at the turn of the century, as well as the emergence of Americanized J-horror adaptations throughout the aughts, studios began churning out PG-13 thril…
 
After “Scream” revived the teen slasher movie in the late 90s, the genre was on life support again by the early 2000s. But after 9/11 changed the tone of the country, a new wave of horror was ushered in: one that was meaner, grittier, and far more violent than any of the previous decades. Instead of looking for a light escape, Americans seemed angr…
 
“I don’t change my style for anybody. Pussies do that.” - Michael Bay This week on the show, we close out our four week retrospective on post-9/11 cinema with what might be the most American film ever made: Michael Bay's "Bad Boys 2." A movie that not only reinvigorated director Michael Bay after his failed attempt to make a more classical wartime …
 
When discussing the pantheon of the best actor/director collaborations in film, you rarely hear about Denzel Washington and Tony Scott. From 1995 until Scott's untimely death in 2012, the pair worked together on five of the best action films of the 90s and 2000s. While Denzel is one of our most beloved and acclaimed movie stars, Scott long lived in…
 
It’s been 20 years since 9/11 and for this monumental anniversary, we’re paying tribute to two of America’s bravest soldiers: Xander Cage and Bob Lee Swagger. For this jam-packed, very special episode of Rotten Rewind in the 2000s, we’re joined by actor/writer/Swagger Head Morgan Phillips, as well as cinematographer and our in-house 9/11 specialist…
 
What did action movies look like in that small sliver of time between the dawn of the millennium and the events of 9/11? In our first 2000s miniseries, we'll be looking back at what genre filmmaking looked like before and after September 11th. Today, we'll be joined by podcast regular Nick Laskin to discuss a pair of early aughts action flicks from…
 
We’re kicking off our monster-sized 2000s Retrospective with what might be the most notorious critical and financial bomb of the decade: Martin Brest’s accidental swan song and the film that might have single-handedly ended the first iteration of Bennifer, “Gigli.” A sensationally weird miscalculation of epic proportions, “Gigli” is the worst film …
 
The tumultuous career of Lindsay Lohan has experienced some of the highest high's and lowest "Loh's" of any young actor we've seen. This week on the show, we're looking back on some of the more pivotal Loh's in Lohan's career: the notoriously rotten "I Know Who Killed Me" and her 2013 soft-comeback, "The Canyons." We're thrilled to be joined again …
 
Hollywood filmmaking peaked in 1993 when actor turned director Tony Bill and stuntman Tom Sierchio teamed up to give America the love story they had been waiting for since the birth of cinema: one in which a small town waitress with terrible taste in men settles for the mentally impaired dishwasher with the heart of a baboon who follows her home an…
 
M. Night Shyamalan has had one of the most fascinating, unexpected career trajectories of our lifetime. Over the course of twenty years, Shyamalan has garned Academy Award nominations and billions in global box office while being hailed as the next Spielberg before nearly being laughed out of Hollywood after a series of critical and financial flops…
 
"It's never goodbye" - Dominic Toretto Our Fast Saga comes to an end this week as we look back at the final rotten installments in the series: 2009's soft reboot "Fast & Furious" and the most recent "F9." Is "Fast & Furious" still the most forgettable, but necessary installment in the franchise? Is "F9" a return to form after the disappointing "Fat…
 
If "2 Fast 2 Furious" was a disappointing, but still financially successful sequel, "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" was the death rattle of a franchise dying young. Or so that's what so many thought when Justin Lin's high school/fish out of water spin on the series was released in 2006. In what might be the most 2006 movie ever made, Lin tr…
 
Everybody thought "2 Fast 2 Furious" sank the "Fast" franchise for good in 2003. Vin Diesel turned down $25 million to return to the series so he could go off and make another franchise ("xXx") with director Rob Cohen. Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster were out. Even Ja Rule turned down half a million dollars to reprise his role. One thing th…
 
It's hard to believe it's been 20 years since we were first introduced to Dominic Toretto and his family, but this week on the podcast we're kicking off our month long retrospective of one of the most successful film franchises of all time: "The Fast and the Furious."

For our second installment of Queer & Rotten, we're heading back to 1980 to dissect one of the most controversial movies of the last 40 years: William Friedkin's queer-panic serial killer thriller "Cruising," featuring one of last truly restrained Al Pacino performances. A film that was mired in controversy from the moment it was announced, Friedki…

The day has finally come that Rotten Rewind puts some fucking respect on Gerard Butler's name.

Can you believe it's been 20 years since Heath Ledger and Shannyn Sossamon donned 14th century attire for a David Bowie dance sequence in Brian Helgeland's jousting action comedy "A Knight's Tale"?

The 90s and 2000s might be the most ubiquitous time for romantic comedies, but they also gave us some of the most truly unhinged entries the genre had to offer.
