“Trespass” (2011) Podcast Movie Review

Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman in Trespass (2011).

Dare Daniel: Cage Match – Round 4

Trespass (2011; Dir.: Joel Schumacher) – Episode 127

“You did it, kid! You hit the mother lode!”

Rich jerk Daniel and diamond-dealer-on-the-edge Corky go fishing in a bottomless ocean of red herrings with their Cage Match review of Trespass. It’s a mindlessly perfunctory and progressively annoying 1A thriller that barrages you with standoffs, fake-outs, double-crosses and twists, twists, twists!

Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss flirty flashbacks, inconvenient crackheads and Australian accent support groups.
