The Flop House Wiki


Stuart : Crack open your storybooks, because tonight we watched A Winter's Tale!
Dan : It's just Winter's Tale...
Elliott : A Winter's Tale!
Dan : Oh boy...perfect...

Show Notes[]

We return to the “romantic fantasy” genre that served us so well (?) with Upside Down as we discuss the Colin Farrell vehicle, Winter’s Tale. Meanwhile, Dan explains Aerosmith’s magic powers, Elliott implores a horse to help him make his booty call, and Stuart wonders whether he was the one in Spaceballs.

Movie Summary[]


A burglar falls for an heiress as she dies in his arms. When he learns that he has the gift of reincarnation, he sets out to save her.


One night in early 20th-century New York, master thief Peter Lake breaks into a Central Park mansion–and quickly has his heart stolen by its occupant, Beverly Penn. Unfortunately, their love is star-crossed; she is dying from consumption, and he is marked for death by his demonic former mentor, Pearly Soames. Peter battles the forces of time and darkness to save Beverly, even as Pearly does everything in his power to defeat Peter.
