Was Ocean’s Eleven a little too slick for you? Was Mission Impossible a little too action-packed? Was Hackers just a little too modern? Well, then we here at Spoiler Filled have found the perfect movie for you in 1992’s Dad Jokes: The Movie. OK, OK, that’s just our little nickname for the movie Sneakers though, to be fair, it is well deserved. “Computer dates”, various anagrams, cool Braille technology, Ben Kingsley’s funny run, Stephen Tobolowsky’s show-stealing and Dan Aykroyd’s real life slipping into the film are all things up for discussion in this surprisingly goofy action caper.
Warning, if you are not Welsh and don’t know what ‘daps’ are, you may not understand the first two minutes of this podcast. Enjoy!
