PODCAST: The Jester’s Filmroom: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (with Will Griffith)

Introducing the Jester's Film Club!

With no sports to worry about in the present, why not look into the past for inspiration?

In 2003, the Sacramento Kings met the New York Knicks in the NBA Finals. Doesn't sound familiar? That's because it happened in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

In the Jester's Film Club, we will look at the fingerprint the Kings have on Hollywood. In this edition, we ask why a 30-win Knicks team was in the Finals, why the Kings had Chucky Brown in the final minute of one of those games, and how the Knicks got four home games in ten days. 

We are joined by The Kings Herald contributor Will Griffith to discuss these important issues. Please rate, review, and subscribe if you haven't and let us know what movies we should discuss in future episodes. 

Enjoy!

So Will, does this mean in the future this podcast will discuss movies from a certain Sacramento-born director?comment image

I’m going with the theory that Will is on Team Ringwald:

Will, I beg you to watch Lady Bird. In fact, I apologize for the mocking comments back in the day on StR about your misspelling of Greta’s name. Please watch the film. It’s special.

I haven’t watched Jaws yet. Or Jurassic Park. I will gladly watch them in exchange.

I know full and well that I am punishing myself in my refusal to watch! But this high horse I’m on is too high to jump down now!

That’s understandable, Will. I’ve often daydreamed of what would happen if I made a lawnchair hot air balloon like Lawnchair Larry Walters and then started freaking out as it slowly rose higher and higher. Would I jump off the lawnchair? Or take my chances and see where fate led me? Every moment that passes, it is rising higher and higher and the chance of getting hurt from the fall is greater and greater.

If I didn’t jump off, would I go so high that I froze to death? Got hit by an airplane? Had a heart attack?

If you ever do watch it far down the future, I wonder if it would even hold up. Like the special effects and CG creatures in the film would probably look really fake 30 years from now. I’ve heard that the animatronic dinosaurs have held up well in Jurassic Park, but I’m thinking I might join you in solidarity in not watching a film ever now that I’m so past the fresh date.

Anyone else want to name a popular movie that they haven’t seen that would invite ridicule by the majority of people? My Lady Bird is Jaws/Jurassic Park. Will’s Lady Bird is…..Lady Bird. What is YOUR Lady Bird?

And of course, who could forget the Kings being represented in this gem?comment image

I remember when I was watching the movie in theaters, I believe there was a scene that was supposed to be in Sacramento (I think the part where the kid is trying to drive the sedated NBA player somewhere), but it was so obvious it was shot in Los Angeles. I only remember because my parents kept talking about it.

Let’s not forget ‘Forget Paris’, another gem of a basketball movie that highlighted Spud Webb and Co

“tomzillawash3r3 made this fan casting suggestion on October 19, 2018.”

Is tomzillawash3r3 the Tom we all know and love?

That is very suspect. I can’t decode the backward 3’s though?

OT: RIP, Marty Mac

RIP to my friend and one of my mentors, Marty McNeal. I'll never forget the first time I met you when I was in college. You let me tag along while you covered a Kings-Warriors game. When I tried to leave you alone so you could write, you told me "Fuck a deadline. We're hangin."

Bradley is correct that Webber dated Tyra Banks. The guy who dated Vanessa Williams (and then married her) was a certain Angeleno…..

Here is the IMDB page for Chris Webber, who I’m guessing is the most involved ex-King in Hollywood, serving 7 times a a producer. Has anyone seen Chris Webber’s Full Court Pranks show? (I didn’t even know it existed)

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0916357/

I love “Everybody Hates Chris” but have not seen every episode. Apparently Webber played a mechanic named Tattoo on the show.

He was also listed as in Hoop Dreams, but it’s been a long time since I’ve seen it. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a really good documentary about a young kid’s basketball dreams.

I guess you could type in the names of Kings players into the IMDB database to research what movies they were involved in.

Never really enjoyed Kate Hudson in anything, but after watching Amadeus and Killing of a Sacred Dear the past couple of nights we’re due for a more light-hearted flick, and this How to Lose a Finals in 10 Days movie sounds Kangzmazing!
