This week we recast the adaptation of the Dan Brown novel, The DaVinci Code. A really good book that was turned into a pretty good movie. Directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks, and Audrey Tautou, this movie’s got pretty much everything you want in a big blockbuster, including huge box office sales and poor critical reception. Mike and I continue to ponder Rotten Tomatoes scores that don’t seem to reflect reality. The scores were so low, but the movie made so much money that they made two more! Either most of the people who went hate-watched the movie, or it was a bit better than the score would reflect.
In celebration of the baseball season starting, this week we recast A League of Their Own. This 1992 ode to women’s baseball was so much fun to recast. I’m not sure if this counts as a “TRC After Dark” episode or not, but the Jameson and laughs were flowing freely and we go all over the place in this one. Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Rosie O’Donnell, and Madonna all headline this “based on a true story” feature about the Rockford Peaches in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.
