The Recasting Couch Ep. 21: The Devil’s Advocate

Devils Advocate

In an attempt to get into the halloween season, we are recasting The Devil’s Advocate this week. This movie is a fun Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino vehicle that pretty much just let the two of them do what they do best: Keanu – playing the savior role, Al – Yelling as much as possible. Although it’s Charlize Theron who completely steals the show even with a shaky southern accent. There are also some really great supporting performances in this movie as well. Tamara Tunie and Debra Monk specifically add a lot to this film.

In this episode, I put my comprehension issues aside and drop a theory that totally changes the way Mike sees the movie, Mike and I both attempt impressions (to mixed results), and we wonder how a movie with such a big budget ended up with such poor visual effects. This was another quick recast, where we watched a movie and then once it was over, we turned the mics on and just started rolling.

One thing I didn’t get a chance to address is that Wikipedia and Rotten Tomatoes have very different run times listed for the movie. Wikipedia has it as 144 minutes, and Rotten Tomatoes has it as 130 minutes. Now, it takes very little time to look into this and it is clearly longer than 130 minutes. How does something like this happen? Who is in charge over there? If you need a time checker guy, then I know someone who would be perfect for the position. My DM’s are open.
