#49 is all about girls playing soccer and women in prison…a likely pairing, right?

Surely THIS can’t be the girl’s soccer team…

Hello HYSTO-philes! Welcome to Episode #49, where we, once again, celebrate (denigrate?) two incredibly disparate movies. Were they treasure or torture? Let’s dig in and find out…

Our first film is Paul’s choice, the 1992 Rodney Dangerfield vehicle¬†Ladybugs. Dangerfield gets no respect from his boss, but he might be able to turn that around if he can coach a hopeless girl’s soccer team to victory. Doesn’t make any sense to you? Join the club…

“You think YOU’RE confused?”

After discussing this masterpiece (and I AM being facetious) we finally get to my choice: in keeping with my Grindhouse/Drive-In Summer Movie theme I picked the 1974 women-in-prison classic exploitation picture Caged Heat, which was Jonathan Demme’s directorial debut…

Definitely NOT a movie about a girl’s soccer team…

This movie is everything an exploitation movie should be and more, and it’s one I’ve been just dying to spring on Paul. Did he like it? You know how to find out…

Of course, as always, we also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and we announce our picks for Episode #50 (!), coming soon!

Won’t you join us?
