Ep. 88 — BASEketball (1998)
This week our Psychotronic Summer series takes us back to a movie that's... well, not exactly a classic, but still loved by people of a certain age who grew up with it. It's the only feature film featuring SOUTH PARK creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone that they were not credited on as writers and producers, 1998's David Zucker-directed comedy, BASEketball!
How does it hold up? Is this a movie that could get made today? That's a topic we broach as we continue our conversation that began during last week's ANIMAL HOUSE episode: Should we hold comedies and comedians accountable for jokes they made in the past that, when seen with 2018 eyes, come across as in poor taste?
