“We’re playing pool with Captain Heart Attack here…” - Eric on this movie’s police captain

On this week’s episode, we’re kicking off the 2024 Listener Request Month with a dirty-ass 1970’s-feeling cop movie that came out in 1989, Night Game! Why is Roy Scheider’s character making such a big deal out of this gifted television set? Can that future mother-in-law just take it down a notch or two? Why is that police chief character looking like he’s about to have a heart attack in every scene? Why does this movie focus so much on Roy Scheider’s upcoming wedding? And is this actually a slasher movie? PLUS: Hilarious fuck-ups from famous serial killers!

Night Game stars Roy Scheider, Karen Young, Richard Bradford, Paul Gleason, Carlin Glynn, Anthony Palmer, Alex Morris, Rex Linn, and Lane Smith as Witty; directed by Peter Masterson.
