"In this episode of The Flop House we discuss Jumper—the heartwarming true tale of the inventor of the jumper cable."

Official Show NotesEdit

"We discuss the teleporting extravaganza Jumper, a movie guaranteed to please the easily satisfied. Meanwhile, Stu explains his (unsurprisingly) sexual plans for super-powers, Matt pleads for peaceful coexistence between Jumpers and non-Jumpers, and Dan uses the podcast for his own personal gain."

Movie SummaryEdit


A teenager with teleportation abilities suddenly finds himself in the middle of an ancient war between those like him and their sworn annihilators.


Aimless David Rice has the ability to instantly transport himself to any place he can imagine. He uses that gift to globe-trot, living on money he steals by "jumping" into bank vaults. He's captured by the evil Roland Cox, who knows how to keep David from jumping. David escapes and reunites with his high school crush, Millie, then forms an alliance with fellow jumper Griffin and prepares for mortal combat with Cox.
