Nathan Rabin's Happy Cast #23: PEGOT (EGOT Plus a Purple Heart)


It’s early September, which means late-summer/early-fall stinkers at the multiplex and the anniversary of 9/11. Lucky, for you, the latest Happy Cast has both!

In this episode, Nathan and Clint return from the latter’s wedding to talk about Jennifer Garner’s perplexing, unbelievably racist comeback film Peppermint, along with 1995’s Fair Game, that other adaptation of the Paula Gosling novel besides Cobra. Cindy Crawford’s in it!

We also take a knee and honor 9/11 by talking about the ways it’s been portrayed in film over the last 17 years, for good (25th Hour) or ill (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close). Take a listen, and never forget to subscribe and share!
