In each episode of Not Playing, Lex Friedman and Dan Moren watch movies they've never seen – but that everyone else has. Watch the classics again for the first time, with Lex and Dan!
When you think of people who haven’t seen a lot of movies that most people have, think of Lex and Dan. And when you think of garbage, think of Akeem. Dan had never seen the 1988 classic starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall and Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall and Eddie Murphy and Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall and Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall: Coming to America.
Hot topics include Eddie’s decision to play multiple characters in many of his films, the versatility of John Amos, and the job insecurity of professional flower petal tossers.
As with every episode of Not Playing, there are two versions of this episode available:
The Bite-Sized Version: We discuss what we know about the film before we watch, and then share our reactions immediately after the credits roll.
The Commentary Track: We still discuss what we know about the film before we start watching it. Then, we provide a real-time commentary track on the film as it unfolds—and you can tag along. We’ll tell you when to press Play.RSS | iTunes
