The Flop House is a bi-monthly audio podcast, devoted to the worst in recent film. Your hosts (Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington) watch a questionable film just before each episode, and then engage in an unscripted, slightly inebriated discussion, focusing on the movie's shortcomings and occasional delights.

Hey, remember Crocodile Dundee? Remember him? Croc? Ol' Mick Dundee? Remember? Crocodile? Crocky D? Anyone?

Take this strange journey with us, and with our delightful guest Ben Harrison, of …
 
Here we are in No-vember, best known for having "no" theme. And we kick the month off with one of the most star-studded movies that absolutely made no cultural footprint whatsoever that you could hope to see -- Breaking News in Yuba County.

Those who woke up early this morning got the wrong episode -- due to a glitch, Dan ended up with a duplicate of an old file on his desktop, and that old episode is what he accidentally uploaded. This is just a note to let you know that if you delete the old file, and re-download today's episode, you will get the proper version of Episode #354 – The…

The Super Mario Bros. live show had a thrilling, good-humored, and completely unexpected special guest in Parker Bennett, one of the film's (many) writers, who showed up in the chat purely to enjoy the show, but was happy to join us for a few minutes to talk about his experience making the movie. Time constraints prevented us from talking to him as…
 
Smalltember concludes with a doozy: Black Easter (previously titled Assassin 33 AD, in a slightly different edit) -- the movie that dares ask "What if someone killed Jesus? ...But not like, the people who ORIGINALLY killed Jesus. What if they were TIME TRAVELING MUSLIMS?" Content warning for all sorts of islamophobic and religious stuff, but honest…

If the boss baby from The Boss Baby: Family Business can enlist her family for their wacky adventures, then why can't Elliott make this a little more interesting by turning the podcast into his own little family business?

It's Cagemas in July! The second-cagiest time of year! So we invited Jordan Morris, creator of the Bubble podcast (available on Maximum Fun) and co-writer of the brand new Bubble graphic novel to come by and discuss the "aliens really like a good martial arts fight" action movie Jiu Jitsu, with a delightful turn by Mr. Cage as a wacky Yoda-like cha…
 
We'll level with all of you -- we ALSO prefer Hallie Haglund, and are at our happiest when she comes by to join us for some film talk. So we had to pick an extra-special movie to mark the occasion. And hoo boy. That movie? The wife of former Trump treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin and controversial figure in her own right, Louise Linton's vanity pro…
