This week finds up back in the No Holds Barred script and covering yet another standout scene from the movie: Brell, Orbach (a.k.a. Ordway), and Unger’s first visit to Spike’s Bar (a.k.a. The No Count Bar).    And while the original Dennis Hackin screenplay version is at least structurally very similar to the later Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon rewrite as seen in the movie, there are some very key differences for us to explore.  Actually, a few of the more bizarre elements from this scene are included specifically in one version but not the other, so this scene in particular gives us a window into the strange internal lives of screenwriters Dennis Hackin, Hulk Hogan, and Vince McMahon.  In addition to the script analysis, this episode features Clint’s long-awaited take on the Louis C.K. sexual harassment scandal, his encyclopedic knowledge of early American explorers and STDs, an apology to Dennis Hackin, a discussion of the extended theatrical run for No Holds Barred in Brazil, one of Jacob’s frightening alter-egos, and Jacob desperately trying (and failing) to remember the movie title “Requiem for a Heavyweight.”  Don’t miss it.

This week, we’re back to our coverage of No Holds Barred with one of the more memorable scenes from the movie:  Rip’s romantic dinner with Samantha N. Moore at the world’s fanciest French restaurant.  And of course, in this case, we’re actually taking a look at this scene from an early draft of the script – a draft written by acclaimed novelist Dennis Hackin – and comparing it to the movie version penned by equally acclaimed writers Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon.  Now, as interesting as this scene is in the movie – and remember that among other things, it features Hulk Hogan wearing a Matlock suit and speaking French – this script version might be even more impressive.  You’ll have to tune in to see why.  And as if that weren’t enough, we also cover topics like horses, orange sherbet, Chopped, Marlon Brando, Li’l Wayne, Rocky Balboa, George H.W. Bush, and two of Clint’s new aliases.  Don’t miss it.
