This week, James Thompson (now of the Pop Culture Role Call podcast) joins us once again to talk about a doozy of a movie – the British sitcom adaptation Guest House Paradiso (aka The Bottom Movie)! Skeevy hotel owners Richie (Rik Mayall) and Eddie (Adrian Edmondson) scheme, perv, and thieve their way through a series of tenants they don’t like, eat poisoned fish, and even lift Simon Pegg off the ground with nothing more than a fishing pole and nipple ring! Yup, it’s everything you’d expect a 90-minute Britcom movie to be, only a lot more mean-spirited. Enjoy our bafflement along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
