Episode 156 - The Butterfly Effect

In this week's episode, the gang gets super extreme and totally has their minds blown while watching The Butterfly Effect! With this trumped up student film, who thought it was a good idea to put up the money? Why does there have to be so many bad things happening to these poor kids? Pick one! And who really thought that director's cut ending was worth even shooting? PLUS: A peek inside the writers' room for this film.

The Butterfly Effect stars Ashton Kutcher, Amy Smart, Elden Henson, William Lee Scott, Melora Walters, Ethan Suplee and Eric Stoltz; directed by Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber.

What an amazing episode, guys! The stoned writers' room impressions are spit-take-your-beer funny. Additionally, The Eric Stolz 'Hey babe he's one my favorite bit parts!' anecdote is also very, very applicable to my life. Once upon a time, I went to see Running Scared with a nice young ladyfriend. "Hey, a Paul Walker movie, you like those harmless car crash movies right? Cool! Let's see this one!" Cue the poor prostitute's face getting jammed into the fucking headlight, among other misogynistic perversions. 0_o

Thanks so much for this. I watched this when I was laid out with a dreadful fever and, even through the haze of my terrible illness, could tell it was just awful. The worst part is I've seen countless comments online about how the film is 'so amazing' and 'so deep, man'...It's just a list of awful shit happening to characters you don't have the time or inclination to care about. They're so desperate to make it 'dark' that they fail to consider anything else, like character or plot or dialogue or ideas or...

It's been a while since I've watched this bad boy, but I remember watching it and the biggest plot hole that came to my mind at the time was "What happened to his brain tumour?" If memory serves in that version of the universe where he's running around in that asylum trying to find old video tapes of himself it's stated, or at least strongly implied, that all the time travel has damaged his brain somehow? All those nosebleeds and crazy memories have actually caused some physical damage. Then he goes back that one last time and stops the girl staying with her dad and when he gets back to the future everything's fixed and suddenly that brain problem goes away. Is it because he went back even further in time that time and reversed all the damage, or just because the film-makers forgot about it because the original ending didn't have to deal with it? Or am I remembering it wrong?

I don't think streaming channels can without significantly raising their prices. Which is fine, I'd pay $20 a month for a streaming channel if they had a more massive selection that includes lots of newer films.

This is the Podcast that hooked me for the whole show. I've listened to it at least 5 times and laugh out loud each time. The stoned writers, clink clink and especially when the baby reaches into the mailbox gets me every time! Bravo, boys.
