BOX OFFICE GOLD, ONE SHOW AT A TIME! Nearly every week, there’s a new NUMBER ONE MOVIE IN AMERICA. Let’s see how four decades of Americans have done at selecting movies, shall we? In each new episode of THE NUMBER ONE MOVIE IN AMERICA, we’ll randomly select a movie that spent at least one weekend atop the box-office charts. Whatever it is, we’ll have to watch it. And tell you whether or not you should. A rebranding of the longrunning review podcast “You Can’t Handle the Truth,” THE NUMBER ON ...

A short, short time from now, on a planet not that far away, Matt Damon made potatoes out of poop! And it got seven Oscar nominations! THE MARTIAN was a runaway hit, despite being neither scientifically inaccurate or sad (the two things that usually make space movies work). Will it hold up all these ... six-ish years later? This week's recommendati…
 
Robin got to pick a movie! And ... it's Sahara? She tells us why she loves this lovable scamp of an mid-aughts, McConaughey-ridden adventure flick — and, while Sean and Kahmeela can't quite match her enthusiasm, they can't be too grumpy about a movie this wacky! This week's recommendations: Sean's big on THE GREEN KNIGHT and CANDYMAN. Kahmeela endo…

A year removed from our first showdown with these ... TURTLES, we revisit the first of the shelled superheroes' seven number-one hits. The original, foam-suited, grit-soaked, Feldman-voiced version of the iconic quartet is the most fondly remembered. Is it any good, though? Plus, in this week's recommendations: Kahmeela likes the Netflix animated f…
 
Back from vacation, Aaron goes through the finer points of vacationing in Ocean City.

By some measures, it's the most successful movie of all time — and it was the Number One Movie in America for a record-setting 16 weeks! Returning guest Addi Twigg (@addiful) joins us and selects E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, the timeless tale of a boy and his alien bestie. Will a combination of nostalgia and magical filmmaking impress our hosts? One…
 
Brendan Fraser and his Harvard Pals learn life lessons from a wacky vagabond played by a reasonable facsimile of Joe Pesci! It's WITH HONORS, which is way more of a Madonna single than a movie but somehow won a sleepy 1994 weekend. Is this a hidden gem, or just a movie with young Brendan Fraser's butt in it? This week's recommendations include mixe…
 
Locate your Sunday shoes, put them on, then proceed to kick them off! We're investigating the (checks notes) TRUE STORY of a town where dancing is illegal and the wide-eyed young man who decided to dance his troubles away! (There's no way to make this plot sound good, sorry.) Two of three hosts are surprisingly unimpressed! This week's recommendati…
 
The triumphant in-person return of kidmental to the Dad-quarters - also joined by Aaron Crothers, until sucked into the Matrix - talm'bout - 'one-man-band-vans,' who has not seen 'The Wire,' selections of sampled songs, OnlyFans for other stuff, THICC husbands (not related to previous topic), the 'word of the week,' and kidmental shares his laughs …
 
We want you to hit us as hard as you can! (Not really, we're very passive people.) Fight Club was just barely a NOMIA, but remains one of the most landmark films of the '90s! Will we still love it? Can we get past the legions of people who completely missed the point? Can it grab the show's highest rating yet? Listen and find out! This week's recom…
 
Oh wow, it's Steven Seagal time. Are we prepared? Is anyone? Somewhat late in the mysterious, fabled Era of Seagal, the notorious kick-man took a trip down to Kentucky to try and find some jugs of green ooze, while romancing Marg Helgenberger and fixing Harry Dean Stanton's porch. Somehow, it's LESS straightforward than that! This week's recommenda…
 
It's always BOOM here. And we're back! Aaron is joined by 'The Side King' Aaron Crothers - talm'bout - goldfinches, stellar dinner sides, zoom comedy, pandemic hang seshes, morning shows, charcoal vs gas (again), meat temperatures and did you know you can still eat steak once it's 'fire extinguished'? -- Find the PODCAST VIDEO FREE on Patreon! Plea…
 
This podcast presents Quentin Tarantino presents Miramax presents HERO! Zhang Yimou's epic, eye-popping wuxia film was an Academy Award nominee ... and then a NOMIA two full years later. The rollout got weird. But it's still a near-classic full of beautiful fight sequences, intense color palettes and caligraphy! This week's recommendations: Sean ta…
 
It's another fan vote! After a neck-and-neck race, the '90s Hot Topic set won out with THE CRAFT! Can anyone on the panel be objective about this gift-wrapped parcel of our youth? Why would you steal from a witch store? Why so many snakes? These and more questions, as we record with perfect love and perfect trust! This week's recommendations: Kahme…
 
Special cross-over episode withAlan & Zoob of "What Do We Do Now?" podcast! Aaron had such a meaningful & all encapsulating conversation about the last year of surviving as an entertainer with Zoob & Alan, we decided to upload it for you! "What Do We Do Now?" Conversations with performing artists who can’t perform. With theaters closed and in-perso…
 
Take a little Halloween, a little Scream, a whole lot of Jason Voorhees and most of Freaky Friday and you get ... a mid-pandemic number one movie in America! FREAKY climbed above the pile of 2020 theatrical releases (it was a small pile) to take the top spot for two weeks. It was ... pretty good? No one hates this! A refreshing episode! The recomme…
 
Just be glad Sean and Robin waited until the next morning to record this, their immediate post-ceremony phone call was mostly just enraged noises. It was an Oscars unlike any other! In that it was even more weird and disappointing than usual. Breaking down the fumbles and few glimmers of joy from an Oscar night we're looking forward to forgetting!…
 
Who knows what to expect going into a most unusual Oscar night? No one! But Robin and Sean are probably closer than most. Listen in for a breakdown of all the nominated films, and fairly confident (mostly) predictions on what will win! Dominate the pool at your odd, virtual Oscar-night party!By Aaron Kleiber, Robin Hitchcock, Kahmeela Adams, Sean Collier
 
This one is a lot. Mel Gibson (you know him, he's that angry guy) followed up his megahit about Jesus with a hyper-violent epic set in the waning days of the Mayan empire. Filmmakers loved it, critics were lukewarm, audiences ... well, listen to the show. Prepare for gore and tapir junk! Also: You get to choose another episode! We've got another mo…
 
An unpleasant rich kid wants to own Richard Pryor! We're not making that sound bad to make a point, that's the actual premise! THE TOY stole a weekend from the alien juggernaut of 1982, adding to a long list of Pryor's hits; were the scathing reviews that greeted it on release wrong? This week's recommendations: Kahmeela and Robin have made it to t…
 
Sean and Robin both made it through Justice League! Y'know, mostly. Between them, they watched at least 6 1/2 combined hours of Zack Snyder's oddly square-shaped artistic vision. Now, they grab the mics like the Flash grabbing a passing a hot dog to try to figure out: Was all that worth it?By Aaron Kleiber, Robin Hitchcock, Kahmeela Adams, Sean Collier
 
That's Coming TO America, not Coming TWO America. Though we cover them both in this past-and-present trip to Zamunda! The winner of our latest audience poll, Coming to America is absolutely having a cultural moment. How well does it hold up 33 years later, and how does it do when viewed back-to-back with its sequel? This week's recommendations: Kah…
 
In an unexpected feat of timing, we've got Oprah and a troubled princess! THE PRINCESS & THE FROG, Disney's penultimate hand-drawn feature, has a lot going for it and just as much going against it. But hey, there's a great villain song and an alligator that wants to play the trumpet! This week's recommendations: Kahmeela recommends the Netflix seri…
 
Despite this movie utterly vanishing from our cultural memory, it was the fourth top-grossing movie of 2008! Lots of people went to see Will Smith drunk fly, redeem himself, and then deal with a whole second plot because the movie realized it wasn't long enough yet! This week's recommendations: Robin went on a tear and recommends Judas & The Black …
 
Our second straight comedy sequel is MEET THE FOCKERS, the stunningly successful follow-up to the movie where Robert De Niro asked Ben Stiller about his nipples. Everyone and their mother (literally) went to see Barbara and the familiar Fockers back in 2004, but was it any good? (How many movies that rely on a swearing toddler are actually that goo…
 
We're going back to Jump Street! (Even though we, as a podcast, never went there in the first place!) Let's take a look at the comedy sequel 22 Jump Street, discuss its weird proposed follow-ups and find ourselves pleasantly surprised that it's just straight-up funny throughout! This week's recommendations: Sean likes the award-nominated Shudder or…
 
She may be PRETTY IN PINK, but both her suitors are real doofs. Robin represents the segment of the population that loved this movie growing up, while Kahmeela and Sean give it somewhat lower marks for being, y'know, kind of a mess. But hey, Harry Dean Stanton and Annie Potts are great! This week's recommendations: Kahmeela gives a cool recommendat…
 
We'ah puttin' this whole friggin' tahn in ah-ur reah view! (That's about as close as you can type to a hilarious Boston accent.) Yes, Ben Affleck scored his first directorial hit with THE TOWN, a charming portrait of a humble Boston neighborhood where absolutely everyone robs a bank every day. This week's recommendations: Kahmeela jumps on board th…
 
We have a very particular set of skills! It's mostly tearing apart reality-breaking minutiae in popular movies! Liam Neeson's career unexpectedly changed after his twentysomething teenage daughter got TAKEN like four minutes after landing in Europe. Does this landmark of old guy punchy-punchy cinema actually land (like a throat punch), or was it ju…
 
At last, we land on a Star Wars movie! Not the one anyone wanted us to land on, but who's counting? Everyone's favorite scoundrel gets an origin story with a troubled production history, as not-Harrison fills us in on far too many details about the young life of SOLO! This week's recommendations: Robin enjoyed LIKE A BOSS! Sean recommends ONE NIGHT…
 
Who's ready to collect some bones? (Not this killer, but that's neither here nor there.) Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie team up for a blatant Seven knockoff, as THE BONE COLLECTOR continues our surprising streak of movies with elaborate clues! Stick around for the moment where a giant cat invades the show! Plus, this week's recommendations: K…
 
We're gonna start the year off right: By stealing the Declaration of Independence! Wildly successful Indiana Jones knockoff NATIONAL TREASURE made Disney a lot of money and helped make Nicolas Cage the walking meme he is today. But is it, you know, any good? We'll find out, if we can get this ocular device to work! Plus, in recommendations: Sean an…
 
2020 ends on a fittingly bleak note, as we talk about SEVEN, perhaps the most depressing film ever to top the box office! (For four whole weeks, yet!) Is the world worth fighting for? Does John Doe have the upper hand? What's in the box? We will try to keep our spirits up as we dive in to Kahmeela's hand-picked episode! This week's recommendations:…
 
Think of our holiday special as a whole cheese pizza, just for you! We celebrate the 30th anniversary of Home Alone by revisiting the slapstick, heartwarming, bandit-murdering comedy classic! This movie was the Number One Movie in America for a staggering 12 consecutive weekends; was it worth all the grave bodily harm to Joe Pesci? Plus, Sean recom…
 
Our first holiday edition kicks off with the most yule-logged superhero flick of all time, 1992's wacky BATMAN RETURNS! Will the film's many, many charms (most of them Catwoman related) outweigh how stunningly over-the-top Tim Burton went? What's up with ... pretty much everything relating to the Penguin? And what does Batman actually accomplish in…
 
Trivia contest winner Bill Fisher joins us, and he's picked a bit of swashbuckling fun! THE MASK OF ZORRO brought the masked pre-Batman back to the top of the box office, and for a few brief moments, made Anthony Hopkins ... sexy? Plus an expected round of FRIENDS chat and more! This week's recommendation: Kahmeela gives a ringing endorsement for H…
 
Order yourself a $5 milkshake and a Big Kahuna Burger and hop on the podcast chopper for our first entry into the Tarantino-verse! Will Hollywood-changing mega-hit PULP FICTION become our top-rated film of all time, or will Quentin find some way to sabotage himself? And, more importantly, can a foot massage just be a foot massage? This week's recom…
 
Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star? We ... don't, but we're totally fine with him. It's POLICE ACADEMY, the series-launching 1984 megahit! What was the deal with this thing? Is it actually funny? Is Michael Winslow a comic treasure? (Yes.) This week's recommendations: Robin is on brand with endorsements of The Color of Money (1986) and Missing (1982…
 
Our first-ever fan vote led to a mild upset, as SNEAKERS edged out early favorite A League of Their Own to take the crown! Robin is thrilled to have her selection on the table -- but will Kahmeela and Sean rain on her Redford parade? Plus, the last(?) word on Forces of Nature! This week's recommendations: Sean likes Let Him Go; Robin endorses The W…
 
Brimley, Busey and brisket, it's 1993's hottest legal thriller, THE FIRM! Young and plucky Tom Cruise is in way over his head with a law firm / criminal enterprise containing a stunning array of white guy character actors; what will he do? (Succeed where he should have absolutely just mobbed up.) Plus, let's reveal what YOU chose for next week's ep…
 
It's a superhero movie with Michael B. Jordan! No, not that one. No, not Fantastic Four, either. The world's only prominent found-footage superhero movie, CHRONICLE, got great reviews on release. Eight years later ... eh. But stick around, because you (yes, you) are going to pick an upcoming episode -- after Robin and Sean fight it out over the nom…
 
All the Jason movies in cinema history, and we somehow landed on the worst one. After The Final Chapter was very much not the final chapter, Jason returned (in a manner of speaking) with 1985's parade of bad decisions, Friday the 13th: A New Beginning! Can it become the worst-ranked movie in show history? (Of course not. We watched TWO Transformers…
 
It's the closest thing the Conjuring Universe has to an origin story and the second highest-grossing film in the series. Did anyone actually like it? Kinda! Maybe! It's The Nun, a simple tale of a Romanian count conjuring a demon that occasionally disguises itself as a creepy nun, but also needs to possess a real nun and ... yeah, we don't quite ge…
