215 - Happy Burtsday! - SHARKY’S MACHINE (1981)

February 17, 2022

February isn’t just the shortest month of the year, it’s also the month that gave us the greatest movie star of all time—Burt Reynolds. Our Happy Burtsday! series has been all about celebrating the man’s life. This week, we’re talking about a total mess of a movie he directed as well as starred in, SHARKY’S MACHINE. It’s got hookers, ninjas, dummies flying out of windows, and several scenes where Burt starts randomly crying like a huge fucking baby that made us totally uncomfortable. Let’s see if you can make any more sense of it than we did.
