JFD124: Two Idiots in Hollywood, Double Team, Conflict of Interest
First, a couple of dummies leave their hometown of Dayton, Ohio for Tinseltown in 1988's "Two Idiots in Hollywood," written and directed by Stephen Tobolowsky. The film is a surreal musical meta comedy that's obsessed with pop culture that lampoons the movie business.
Next, Jean Claude Van Damme joins forces with NBA star Dennis Rodman to fight terrorism (in the form of Mickey Rourke) in "Double Team" from 1997. Hark Tsui directs this film about terrorism, revenge and children... and, uh... basketball metaphors and weird stuff like that.
Finally, a tough cop (Christopher McDonald) must deal with a sexy metal gang (lead by Judd Nelson and his girlfriend, Alyssa Milano) ruining his son's life in 1993's "Conflict of Interest." Stuntman Gary Davies directs this tale of rage, industrial music and chicken murder.
