"On this episode we discuss the movie that made Selena Gomez an action star: Getaway."

Go away, Getaway
Hawkey Holidays to all the little Flop House boys and girls. Your present is the movie-length chase scene Getaway. Meanwhile, Dan takes on the liberal media, Stuart gives one of his patented Flop House asides, and Elliott reminds us all of Dorf's amazing performance in Don't Look Now.

Movie SummaryEdit



­It's like 85% car chase, and that sounds great! Like if you said to me there's an action movie, it's a lean, low-budget movie with a star in Bulgaria that's 85% car chase, I'm like: That sounds like it could be great! But it's not. It's really terrible.

Worse ThanEdit

­I never thought I'd be watching a movie and say: I miss the clockwork plotting and sharply-drawn characters of 12 Rounds—a movie which is mainly John Cena destroying the parts of New Orleans that Katrina didn't get to. [...] 12 Rounds looks like a really good movie next to this.
