The Jesus Rolls – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 80
“Wiping your ass is an experience.”
Daniel and Corky fuck with the Jesus in this day-drinking episode by reviewing John Turturro’s The Jesus Rolls. Tonal atrocities abound in this pointless amalgam of a Big Lebowski side-quel and an age-inappropriate remake of the 1974 French film Going Places. The cameo-filled The Jesus Rolls fails both of its source films, yet also manages to fail on its own terms.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss gondolier fashion, Manic Pixie Dream Sluts, and bowling alley sambas.

This week’s darer: HOF Heather Smith
Why did Heather dare Daniel and Corky to watch The Jesus Rolls? “Big Big Lebowski fan over here. Was excited but apprehensive when they announced a flick about one of the grossest characters from one of my favorite movies The Jesus. It feels like they took a SNL one-joke character and tried to make a full feature with some pretty one-note jokes. Please do our dirty work for us. Don’t make me watch him lick dirty balls. And to the listeners, donate for heaven’s sakes. You gotta keep these guys fed, and well beer-watered.”
IMDB synopsis: “A trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again.”
