Reviews For The Flop House

(Review withheld)
I love you guys. Dan, Stu and Elliott are amazingly engaging. You guys have helped me through so much and I can’t thank you enough. That said, thank you. Kisses!!! Shawn (Last Name Withheld)
Podcasts rarely make me laugh until there’s tears in my eyes. The Flop House has done that to me more times than I can count. I don’t think I’ve seen any of the movies they’ve reviewed and it doesn’t take away from my enjoyment of the show one bit. As far as I’m concerned this is a comedy podcast first and a movie podcast second. Do yourself a favor and listen.
The Flop House has been my favorite podcast for so many years now; it is a cherished piece of culture that I look forward to every 2 weeks. The hosts are intelligent, funny, and don’t take things too seriously, yet they are also respectful and just nice people. You can trace the growth in their maturity and intelligence over the years, but the episodes still have a very high re-listen value. They work really hard to ensure the eps can be listened to for years to come, which comes in handy any time I’m feeling blue. Cannot recommend more highly.
I don’t even know what they are referring to half the time, but honestly it doesn’t matter. These three becomes familiar friends throughout the episodes.
They reference much older films shows and actors that a younger audience wouldn’t understand without alienating that younger audience. They introduce you to older films and current techniques beat by beat never missing a comedic step
The first 8 or so episodes aren’t great but once Eliot comes in the dynamic is perfect
I loved the Flop House before the end times, but it’s become essential to my sanity over the past month. I can’t recommend it enough!
Thank you for always making me happy. You never fail to make me smile and laugh.
It is a simple premise of 3 white guys poking fun of movies, but these particular three gents create comedy dynamite. Even their ad reads can bring on hysterical laughter. Well worth a donation to Maximum Fun to support them, plus you can listen to their secret roleplaying podcast, Flop Tales.
Even elliots singing is bearable in these times, almost lol. These guys all provide much needed laughs to get us through these tough times, many thanks to the floppers.
Thanks, Guys!! You are trying to keep us laughing and we love you💕for it!!
One of the funniest, best podcasts you’ll ever need. Huge back catalogue and great new episodes.

The review begins in media res. A castle freak, Fisher Stevens, and Nicholas Cage walk into a bar. Ding dong! Ouch. If you know, you know. If you don’t know and want to know, check out this hilarious bad movie watching podcast. If you don’t know and still don’t want to know, just keep walking, buster. Nothing to see here, sister. Literally. It’s a podcast.
A tremendous bad movie podcast that in my heart trumps all bad movie podcasts. The dynamics and comradarie of the three hosts is delightful, infectious, and brings me great joy. The show is fairly rich in in jokes so it can take a little bit to get a full depth and appreciation but their humor stands up on its on as well. If youre looking for a first episode I recommend Food Fight (it will give insight to the title of the review as well). If you've seen any of these movies they list I also suggest checking those out first, however they will describe the movie in varying degrees of synopsis and detail. Fun and funny show made by a group of genuine pals.
Love these three and their comeraderie.
For anyone who binged MST3K in the day and the current day, this is the podcast that meets those needs. Hell yeah it's funny, and one that can be listened to and re-listened to (Death Wish is a fav, special episodes of Cagemus, Shocktober, etc.) I'm a person who would rather listen to off the wall discussion of bad movies than watch good movies. This is the kind of pod that helps thru bad times, insommnia, subway commutes, sick days, workplace background, etc. The Peaches are also LGBTQ Allies. If you like them, donate a few bucks a month and get extras like The Flop Tales, bonus fun.
Love this show and the days and days of funny relevant content over the years. Currently I’m burning my way through the catalog and loving every episode. Stu-boi is my spirit animal.
A great podcast about words that sound like other words, interspersed by long deep sighs and the pop fizz of a freshly opened beer can.

They’re Greaaaaaaat!!!!!!
i’ve listened to every episode multiple times, which is saying something considering the episodes are like an hour long and the shows been going since 2007. i don’t particularly care about movies, but listening to the flop house guys feels like talking to friends. they make me laugh every time. thanks, guys. i love you.
As a long time listener I had no idea that the Flop House could get even better. It appears as if the Titanic Trio our fabulous Peaches are doing just that! Current movie episodes, guests and Dan’s sound board. I’ve been laugh harder than ever. Highly recommend
You don't have to listen to the Flop House for long before you start to feel like one of the gang. They're witty, they're funny, they're insightful and sensitive. I'm not sure if Dan is cripplingly depressed or if there's some schtick in there - but I'm glad he's got Stuart and Elliott around.
This is a good-great podcast. 303 episodes as of this recording is just a staggering monument to bad movies and the friendship shared between the hosts. You could seriously view the podcast as a chronicle of 3 people as they grow up, get settled in their careers and change all against the backdrop of bad movies. These 3 have excellent chemistry, know when to dig at eachother for bits, and clearly love trashy cinema. This is a complex world of silly in-jokes, words that sound like other words, and other delights.
These young men are my constant driving companions. God speed, peaches.
I listen on the way home from work I save these for when I’m down and need a lift or when I just want to celebrate a day that went well.
A highlight of every-other-weekend.
Great chemistry and insights. I just wish Elliot were dialed back about 25%. The majority of his tangents are just not funny, and he tends to lead down alleyways that take a while to get back from. I wonder how this would be with just Dan and Stuart.
Love listening to these guys riff on movies! My only complaint is too many guests/live episodes but that’s entirely a personal opinion. I just feel the guests/live audience often ruin the regular flow of the episode. Regardless if you have an basic understanding of film or how movies are created you’ll love how they dissect all these flops.
It was good!
I’ve listened for 10 or 12 episodes; I wanted to like it but just couldn’t. It’s not a bad show but it’s not good either. You’re not going to miss anything by skipping this show. Two of the hosts are decent, funny and intelligent with some good insights into the movies they review. The third host is bit much. I found him to be rude, unfunny with a need to be the constant center of attention. He’s quite annoying and needs to scale his personality back a bit. He constantly interrupts the other hosts with some dumb comment or joke and keeps going when they are trying to say their piece; going until they occasionally forget what they were trying to say in the first place. I actually feel bad for the other two hosts. Based on most ratings and reviews of this podcast, I am clearly in the minority. There are two other “bad” movie podcasts that I find much more entertaining. Do give this podcast a chance; you may enjoy this much more than I did.
It’s the original bad movie podcast, but somehow doesn’t fit the dumb cliches of bad movie podcasts. This show is dumb comedy and smart observations, usually at the same time. Dumb comedy is the best kind of comedy, and if you think otherwise you’re lying to yourself.
This is the best podcast there is. These guys make me happy whenever I listen. I’ve tried to branch out and listen to other podcasts, but I always come crawling back. It’s tough to advertise without making ten year old inside jokes, so just give it a listen. Rated R.
This podcast is great! I’ve been listening for quite a while now, and the guys long tangents on strange topics never get old. Super funny show that just keeps me coming back week after week. Highly recommend!
I usually listen when I’m trying to relax. Idk if it’s good to say that I listen to them when I’m trying to nap, but it really works! It’s like having 3 buddies read you a story before bed. I only did 4/5 though because it seems like on some of the newer episodes there’s a lot of tension between Dan and Elliot. I might just be over analyzing, but the dynamic there used to be very playful banter, and now it comes across as they just truly get annoyed with one another, but still try to play it off as a joke. The obvious tension there can make me uncomfortable like when you’re eating dinner at a friend’s house and his/her parents are lowkey in a fight and making little comments throughout the meal but are still trying to keep it civil and light in front of guests, ya know what I’m talking about? So I tend to just listen to the older episodes.
I would watch this show religiously if you got rid of Elliot. His voice is atrocious, and it ruins the podcast.
They talk about the movie but there’s no added value. Elliot’s brand of pedantic “humor” is annoying and unfunny.
The movies they watch are overwhelmingly awful so they mostly just go off on crazy tangents and tease each other mercilessly. If you don’t like them as people, you won’t like it (just like every other podcast). That’s all there is to it. If you’re into scripted, informational podcasts or looking for a serious discussion about film, this probably ain’t for you, pal.
...and one with a distorted view of how funny and charming he is. I’d be hard pressed to think of anyone who seems more enamored by the sound of his own voice.
I kept hearing ads for this podcast on other MaximumFun shows a few years ago and thought I’d check it out even though I thought I’d sort of moved past the bad movies phase of my life. Turns out Dan, Elliott, and Stuart are hilarious and smart and love movies almost as much as they love hanging out with each other. This has become my favorite podcast and the show and the community around it has enriched my life.
This is probably the worst pod cast I have ever listened to. I’m a huge movie buff and love comedy podcasts, movie reviews, bad movies, all the makings of what this show SHOULD be but it’s none of those. If you want a trio of funny listen to MBMBAM (my favorite podcast of all time), if you want a good movie podcast listen to How Did this Get Made (also a great trio plus sometimes guest) but what ever you do skip this podcast. The only good episode is the switcheroo ep where the McElroys sit in for the regulars.
These giuys make me laugh so much I'm almost thankful this podcast only comes out every other week ... for my own sanity! WHo knew hearing reviews about movies I've never seen could be so funny? One of the bst podcasts around.
A show of great jokes and riotous laughter. These three funny dudes watch a bad movie then talk about it, but they also sing, make fun of each other, and even open presents!
Funny, charming and heartwarming, a delightful romp!
This is absolutely the best movie podcast to which you could ever listen. Not only is it hilarious, but unlike some other bad movie podcasts, the hosts have an excellent command of cinema theory, an encyclopedic knowledge of film history, and amazing chemistry as a trio. You can learn a great deal about good movies from The Flop House, while enjoying the worst that Hollywood has to offer as well. A++ would buy again. Update: Years later this is still my favorite podcast. I’ve seen these guys live 4 times and it’s always great. Start with “Bullet to the Head.”
👨🏻‍🌾!
The amount of long car trips these 3 absolute peaches (and guests) have gotten me through is obscene. I love the format, the personality, and the kind hearted ribbing towards these less maybe than beloved flicks and more than beloved cohosts.
I feel like the world's latest adopter when it comes to podcasts, but this is THE podcast that got me into listening to the medium. I particularly appreciate the way that it fills a very specific need for me. I rarely have the time or spare cash to go to the theater to see movies, but I'm still morbidly curious about a lot of the movies that make their way to the big screen, because they seem so wrong-headedly bonkers. For example, I was both unable and unwilling to part with my dollar or my evening to see the sequelt to Independence Day no one asked for, but I was dying to know what the heck it was all about. Luckily The Flophouse had my back! Between Elliott's detailed scene-by-scene recapping and Dan and Stuart's commentary, I got the best of both worlds, knowledge about the bad movie in question without having to invest in the bad movie itself. Win-win! That was a few years ago and I've been a constant listener and appreciator ever since.

5/5

Best wordplay comedy podcast of them all.
