Ryan’s Babe – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 118
“I feel shitty, and I’m tired.”
Daniel and Corky bemusedly smile and shake their heads over the indecipherable Canadian anti-comedy Ryan’s Babe. This dimwitted yet bizarrely Rohmer-ian road trip movie gets the conventions of filmmaking so wrong that it forces you to question the value and meaning of doing it right.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss Nice Girl Brenda, inexplicable limping, Saskatchewan wise guys and kung fu strippers.
Stick around until the end of the episode for a special message.
RYAN’S BABE FACTS AND FIGURES
This week’s darer: Gunnar Pearson
Why did Gunnar dare Daniel and Corky to watch Ryan’s Babe? “Ryan’s Babe is one of the most uniquely bad movies ever made. Ryan’s Babe probably has the highest concentration of batshit crazy moments of any movie that has ever been made. This movie short-circuited my brain every couple of minutes. I don’t really know how to describe this movie because it is so unique that I think it genuinely defies genre.”
IMDB synopsis: “A young man embarks on a road trip, hoping to solve his life’s problems along the way.”
