When it comes to movies, there is bad-bad and good-fun-over-the-top bad. Join Eli Olsberg and guests Rory Scovel, Kumail Nanjiani, and TJ Milleras they celebrate the latter. Each comic brings in a movie of their choice and after watching a clip/trailer from all three, the audience votes as to which one they watch and rip to shreds. Also, if you have a bad movie you want to show off, bring it in for a chance to have it be our movie of choice that night!
