Tom Armstrong from The Roundabout Crew and the Tom and Frenchy Podcast joins us this episode to discuss Keenan Ivory Wayans' auteur effort from 1994.

Following his success on In Living Color, but before his smash hit Scary Movie, this tomato pivots from his famous outrageous parody style, instead opting for a serious action film in the vein of Lethal Weapon. It also stars Jada Pinkett Smith.

Our main man John Travolta finds his way back onto the list, with 1993's "Look Who's Talking Now," the third in the Look trilogy, also starring fellow Scientologist Kirstie Alley. In the first films, it was babies who talked. Now, it's dogs! Basketballer Charles Barkley is also in this movie. Danny DeVito and Diane Keaton play the voices of some dogs. It's a... romantic comedy? About cheating on your wife and accidentally telling your kids that Santa isn't real.

Our guest for this episode is Nick Delatovic: performer, musician, wrestler and podcaster.

9. Folks!

Tom Selleck stars in this 1992 "comedy" film about a guy whose Dad is suffering from dementia. Thanks to COVID-19 isolation, we recorded this remotely. The real question is, can we get Malcolm Turnbull on the podcast?

In this episode, the gang figure out what to call their fans and review 1991's Return to the Blue Lagoon, starring a young Milla Jovovich and Brian Krause.

This film is the direct sequel to the 1980 film Blue Lagoon, which starred Brooke Shields and explores similar themes of island-stranded teenage lust.

In 1991, the sequel to 1986's modest hit Highlander was released. It was a disaster. The director walked out of the premiere and denounced it. He was later allowed to re-edit it for international audiences. The contention about the quality of this tomato continues in 2020 as our gang have their first real fight.

In 1990, Problem Child was released. Directed by Denis Dugan (Happy Gilmore, Grown Ups, Big Daddy), it was a critical flop but a commercial hit, going on to spawn 2 sequels and a cartoon TV spin-off. It stars Michael Richards as Kramer from Seinfeld as a murderer and youngster Michael Oliver, who didn't act again after 1995.

Aunty Donna's Zachary Ruane becomes the first ever guest on the podcast. Being the guest, we let him choose which tomato he wanted to review and he chose 2002's "Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever," a rollicking action romp starring Antonio Banderas and Lucy Liu, which holds the official title of "worst-reviewed film in the history of Rotten Tomatoes."

Directed by a mysterious man known as KAOS, join us on this journey of quarantined film reviewing.

In this episode, the gang discuss 1988's Mac and Me, a fairly obvious McDonald's and Coca-Cola sponsored rip-off of E.T, with more hideous alien costumes. This is that movie that Paul Rudd often shows a clip from when he guests on Conan.

In this short episode, the boys go off script and try and do a live-commentary for WILD HOGS (2007), starring John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, William H. Macy and Tim Allen. All who have been involved in some sort of major controversy or crime.

This tomato actually sits at 14%, not hitting that 0% threshold, but hey, we make the rules. Email us at trulyrottentomatoes@gmail.com if you have suggestions for live commentary episodes.
