074: SFFCH – The Pope Must Die

074 The Pope Must Die SF

‘The Pope Must Die’: What a rich title for a comedy that never comes close to matching its own name. Welcome to ‘Spoiler Filled Film Conversation Hooray’, and to Rich’s latest choice. Join him, Jamie and Abi as they discuss this ‘Comic Strip Presents’ flavoured movie, and try to work out just which bits are supposed to be funny. That was one of the chores with alternative comedy of the time: Identifying the jokes. So, what do they talk about? Well, there’s Herbert Lom’s silver wig of disguise, the some terrible over-dubbing, haphazard and dead-ending subplots, and the complete absence of competent Pope jokes. Oh, what there might have been! At least it had Adrian Edmondson. (Ep 74, Rec 2014)
