“I’m on your ass!”
In this turbocharged episode of the Dare Daniel podcast, dream team hosts Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell review the crazy-racist buddy cop comedy Collision Course, featuring the nightmare team of Jay Leno and Pat Morita. A vile and incompetent archive of 1980s cop movie cliches rife with product placement and casual racism, Collision Course stars Leno as a Detroit cop and Morita as a Japanese detective chasing a stolen prototype turbocharger (aka the worst MacGuffin ever). Daniel and Corky eventually stop raving about the new Jared Starburst long enough to discuss sax-synth clubs, decapitated drivers, split-screen freeze frames and Jay Leno body doubles.
