"In this unedited edition of The Flop House we learn the error of our ways, by watching the slapstick right-wing comedy An American Carol."

Official Show NotesEdit

"Due to outside circumstances, there was not time to post show notes (or, for that matter, editing the show beyond adding the theme/introduction/outtakes) this week. But enjoy the episode."

Episode HighlightsEdit


  • Stuart is obsessed with the idea of shooting a bear with a flamethrower, and says that his ideal bachelor party would involve riding in a tank, shooting a bear with a flamethrower, and probably naked girls. From there, he and Elliott invent a scenario in which Stuart meets a gorgeous Eastern European woman with a vendetta against a bear.
  • Species II @26:10

Movie PitchesEdit

  • The Mummy 4D @29:30
Brendan Fraser comes back, but this time he's a mummy, because there's a new kind of mummy that turns people into mummies after they get bitten. He promises Stuart that it will only be 74 minutes and it will feature wendigos and topless Christina Hendricks.
Dan objects that designing a film simply to suit Stuart might not be a very profitable move, and Elliot replies that he expects Stuart to see it multiple times.
Then Elliott decides to rename it An American Mummy in Paris: The Quickening, and throws in the title of its sequel, An American Mummy in the Mesozoic. Also, he plans to create a time machine, go back to 1981, bring back Mel Gibson, and put him in the movie as Mad Max.
