Neither is a huge mid September contest. Ohio State at Oregon. The Big 10 conference today announced because of health and safety for student athletes, coaches, officials and fans.

It's clear then everybody would be would be reasonable and know that that was Was the right thing to do now will the Pac 12 be forced to play conference games? Only commissioner Larry Scott last month told 24 7 sports. That's one of many options. Obviously, the worst worst case scenario is we could never get comfortable or we're not allowed. More likely by public health officials to play at this stage. That would that would mean I believe is we've had a real setback as a country. Some have suggested a 2021 spring football season.

"I, Mike Obviously all eyes yesterday we're going to be on the Ivy League trying to figure out what they decide as a conference they're comfortable with as far as playing any sports, and we get the answer that we thought that there might be postponement. They might try and find a way to play games. No, In fact, the college football season is gone. For the Ivy League canceled is the key word. There will not be college football from the Ivy League. And while it's a small domino It is the first domino we've seen actually fall in the answer of what will happen for college football, and we will focus on football. But this is for all fall sports. The Ivys have announced their ruling out playing all fall sports. They're the first Division one conference to do so because of the Corona virus pandemic. No decision made yet about winter or spring sports and ivy or whether fall sports could be played. In the spring of 2021 but it sounds like for football you mentioned that word canceled is the one that's coming up meaning that is gone in this situation, so I know this is one that on the outside looking in, people are going to look at and say You know what it is, You know, it's the Ivy leagues. It's not the money makers in college football. It's all these things. But it's one of the first important data points that we have gotten in this conversation as it pertains to what's coming up in the falls. We creep closer and closer to power. Five college football, the rest of these sports having to make some uncomfortable decisions, some of which we're already seeing pop up in the world of big time. Power five sports. Well, let's look at where this decision came from. Robin Harris, the executive Rector of the Ivy League, was on Spain and company last night and talked about where this decision came from and where the protocol was justified. So what the president wanted to do was decide what needed to be decided right now. And it's similar to the approach is most of them have taken regarding campus policies that the campus policies are subject to change based on how the virus changes and how our ability To treat or combat about the virus changes. So as campus policies change, then we can modify what's happening in athletic, so if the situation gets Better that will allow more athletic activities and hopefully competition to occur, and conversely, if it were to get worse. Then you know we might have to go the other way. You mentioned that a good number of the Ivy League schools of place restriction on travel for faculty staff and students, which includes the athletes and the coach is involved in this, and some also have restrictions for visitors. So all those would affect the ability to go around and have athletic competition during all of that, And so in this case, and especially at the Ivies, we know the camp beside is always going to dictate to the athletic side. That's the dynamic there. And so, with all that in mind, they couldn't go forward with this well, and let's be real about what's at stake in some of these conversations. My room, Metcalf pointed out, let yesterday on Twitter. You know, when you talk about Harvard and Yale and Princeton, you're talking about schools that combined to get about $11 million each in generated revenue from college football. That's a stark difference from the close $150 million In Ohio State generates. So let's be real about how these decisions are being made. We all I mean, we'd be lying to the world to say that money isn't a driving factor and money, obviously much different conversation for the Ivy League schools than it is for the power five schools as they try and figure out how they're going before. I think this is the perfect thing to underscore what we're hearing. A lot of the rest of college football's. Well, we gotta do this. Jim Harbaugh came out yesterday. Michigan's head football coach, and one of the things you heard him say was I'm paraphrasing some, but I'm pretty sure the phrases we got to do this, he said. Covert 19 is part of our society. It's not something that was caused by sports. Or we may worse by supporters. I don't think is a claim that he can back up when it comes to can be made worse by in all of this, because it depends on what you're then floating definition off worse is but gotta play. The Ivy showed you We don't gotta do anything intrinsically not for the reason that people are going to bring up because they've worked so hard to get to this point because athletics are important to them. Know this is a Dollars and cents type thing. We got to do this because as we're seeing out on the West Coast was Stanford right now, there are athletic departments all around the power, five that have been punching up that have been trying to overextend themselves and write write checks that it only looks like they can cash based on the strength of power, five football in a lot of senses, and we're saying we're seeing and I had sadly imagine going to Seymour examples of That not being the case. Well, and for me, I've gone back and forth on this issue. So many time's will there be college football. I get asked all the time. We're gonna have college football in the fall. And if you'd asked me a few months ago, I said squarely. No, I didn't think it was going to be safe. And then the economics article came out on ESPN dot com. That sort of broke down some of the money issues and the roughly $65 million lost for school in the fact that less than half of all of the FBI schools across the country have reserves to handle those sorts of losses and that shook me when I read it. I mean, there was this moment when I step back, and I thought, Well, I mean, should we have college football? No, I don't think we should. Well, we have college football. I don't understand how the sport sustains. I don't understand how college athletics sustained economically without college football. So when Harbaugh says, we have to have it, you're right. I just want transparency and that like, Don't try and make it like your altruistic and you're suddenly the peak in a lightning dark, dark world. Forgiving us college football. We gotta have it because if we don't have college football this year I don't know who bails out college sports, But somebody will have to Bobby Carpenter, ESPN NFL analyst is actually on Friday and Fitzsimmons, former Ohio State Grayton brought up what happens if we have no football. College athletics is a single income family in football is that single income and talking to people to Ohio State going through me? Football counts for really 150 to $160 million really, the entire budget Do you wipe that out? There's not gonna be any sports the rest of the year that that just in Ohio State by state, similar Stanford, then 36 varsity sports, and so if you'll make that, like there's gonna be any force the rest of the year and if that's happening in places like Ohio State and Stanford It's going to be happening definitely places that aren't as financially solvent as some of these big power five schools here on ESPN Radio Michael Jr and Jason fits Stanford that he mentions there. We've mentioned a couple of times it's worth noting announced yesterday that it was going to cut 11 varsity sports, Citing the pandemic as a breaking point.

"Tournament of Disney. Those of pro sports. For straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless when it comes to college athletics. Big money, but we're dealing with players, many of whom are still teenagers technically under someone else's care, and many have said that at the college level coaches, athletic director's school presidents, they're the adults in the room. Wednesday, the Ivy League ruled out Sports for the fall of the First D one conference to cancel sports for the upcoming semester due, of course to the Corona virus pandemic. Earlier on ESPN radio Robin Harris, the executive director of the Ivy League, so what the president wanted to do was decide what needed to be decided right now. And it's similar to the approach is most of them have taken regarding campus policies that the campus policies are subject to change based on how the virus changes in how our ability To treat or combat the virus changes. So as campus policies change, then we can modify what's happening in athletic, so if the situation gets Better that will allow more athletic activities and hopefully competition to occur, and conversely, if it were to get worse. Then you know, we might have to go the other way many schools that are bringing students back for the fall semester, of course, doing so, with restrictions on where students can go and who can come visit And that Was a factor in the decision for the Ivy League about sports where the campus policies impacted. Our decisions about athletics really has to do with the competition piece, because when you have restrictions on travel and restrictions on Who can visit your campus. It's hard, Tio manage. How are we gonna have athletics competition with a team from another location? How are we going to send our student athletes? To another location, even though we are fortunate that were geographically compact, and we're we travel by bus and most of our trip there day trips, it became complicated. We are athletic directors looked at a variety of options. To try and figure out. Are there ways Tio Really limit the travel, and it just became difficult. Robin Harris that our executive director of the Ivy League earlier on ESPN radio Harris, saying the decision was not easy. Justice Hard, in fact, is making the call a few months ago for spring sports. No decision's been made about winter or spring sports in the Ivy League, or whether fall sports could be played in the spring of 2021. So the Ivy League making its decision Wednesday, some folks feeling They're the first domino to fall and others will follow earlier on ESPN Radio SEC Commissioner Gregg thank you saying Not necessarily, but it doesn't create any pressure for me and and I watch. I read some news that links decisions back in March. So the reality is that dinner when the idea league announcement came out I said, You know, we're playing basketball with fans that we did on Wednesday, but Wednesday information change so our decisions in March we're not about another league. Waded across the autonomy. Five group collaborate, communicate, So we knew where people were headed. But we weren't stopping because someone else stopped on. We weren't stopping in March because the Ivy League stop so today. The pressure on me has changed. I think the pressure on these events no matter what happens on other conferences, and what we're going to do is listen to our medical personnel as we have. We're gonna listen to our campus leadership and fully engaged them. I'm going to visit with my colleagues because we've worked more closely across the Tommy five. But I don't think that the announcement today is Is any inflection point for decision making Now when you look at what's happening from the trend line with virus testing, with hospitalizations with supplies. Treatment's. Those are the real inflection points for us. Greg sank e saying as they head to the fall. All of their dates of the moment continue to be fluid. But how about moving those dates potentially to the spring? Well, it seems to me the questions that have to be asked and answered our candy start football. Um, at the time schedule this Labour Day weekend, and that's a yes or no answer. Based on criteria. The answer is no. That you're then and you know when can you start football and go back to April? The potential for spring is on this long. That's the contingencies. What will you have to evaluate the criteria? Would cause you to not be ableto participate in the fall or have football in the fall. And then well, those criteria be present when you want to play in the spring. And that's a difficult question to answer. So if you've got 45 reasons why you have to stop Are those four or five reasons still going to be there? Come February or March when you contemplate the start of spring football and what? I've not heard his clarity that Oh, no. You know, the circumstances will be very different. And I know that's the answer. That's the information that's really needed to inform that decision. Possibly could that ever happened. I would never be the one to say no, but you have to think about The evaluation points that leads you in that direction. And will you have substantially different information have been informed that decision making six months from now. So the bottom line what we're hearing from SEC Commissioner Greg Frankie. If things aren't good in the fall, there's no saying things will be any better in time for the spring. So the key question What is Spanky feeling about SEC football happening this fall? I want to be optimistic, but the reality is publicly. We have to discipline ourselves to remain healthy as a culture. And that relates to some of the behaviours we've seen that have caused the spread to accelerate. And I've been optimistic. But I'm prepared that that optimism is not reality and what I'm concerned about is that reality has been changing. And has caused me to not be his optimistic it. I may have been 30 days ago, but throughout it all we've been preparing and planning and thinking about what pivots when you have to make and those are the important decisions over the next You know, 345 weeks that are going to be in front of us, given what's happening at the public health, SEC Commissioner Greg's Anke earlier on ESPN radio saying. Is optimism is not as high as it was a month ago when it comes to college football. And at Stanford School has made the decision to cut 11 varsity sports after the upcoming school year, including field hockey, men's volleyball and wrestling the school, eliminating 11 of its 36 Varsity programs. It'll affect more than 240 student athletes and 22 coaches Talk wireless no contract, No compromise SportsCenter all night, ESPN radio while college sports Our big question moving forward..

One of the great things about that movie. It I I never understand how people pull this off. I'm not saying this kiss your US. There's like thirteen distinct characters in that movie. Maybe even more. I don't know what the exact number is that you kind of feel like, you know, and they're not even really in it that much, you know. And I think that's for me the legacy that movie is the way it's shifted over the thirty years, what's happening culture.

We're back, and we're talking about house party house party, which was very successful. And of course, since that happen. There has to be sequel, and in this case, there should be multiple scene. So you talked about how the felt like kin play were in college. When it came to house party one j and with house to well, I say they are in college. But definitely kid is in college, which is a little bit more fitting with I think he was like twenty seven or so when they were making these movies twenty six twenty seven so fits a little bit better with his age. He's still not college as but we're getting a little closer here with this. And in this one is another one where play is. I mean, he is really addicting and just the way that we have him taking kids money for college and spending it and basically losing it to mine who is playing a scam artist. I mean, there's he's he's really not very nice at all. Now, he's an awful rent. Will you really think about it in retrospect, he's a terrible friend. He's one of those guys where it's that. You would almost bills makes you wonder how on earth? Do they like Maine? Do they maintain any kind of friendship along the way the way that he was he would treat him and watching watching this movie? It was almost like it was it was almost like they were trying to figure out what to do when you had a really good first movie. And obviously, the one one of the main things is this is also the tribute to Robin Harris along the way to seeing them kind of redevelop over time, it was different than his year and a half later when the movie comes out, and I do wonder how able to maintain that friendship as you take that much money for me. I'm not going to be the nicest guy to deal with ten was ten thousand dollars. That's fucking crazy. I can't say that I'd like house party to that much. And especially I was talking about the structure of the first house party. And how the house party is the entire second act and in this one the house party is basically the third act. So we're building up the entire time. And there's no even. Mention of a house party, and frankly, not to be nit-picker. But technically, they're not having a house party because this doesn't take place in. But to have the and I love when places the pajama jammy jam having that at the end of this. It's all building up to that. And that's where all of these parties come together, and we have everything happening the one line now talking about watching these movies almost thirty years later the line that really cracks me up is the whole idea of Sydney and her new roommate who's played by Queen Latifah and Sidney has to ask her point blank. You do like boys. Don't you? Another thing that's dated very well. Well. The early nineties again, we're we always thought the nineties were a lot overdress that they asked for. Wow. I heard her say that I couldn't help, but cringe. It was got the uncomfortable. Laughter. You know, as we're him at the first movie, I'm thinking of other movies that were happening around the same time. You know, we're talking about the way that the cops are harassing kids. And I'm just like, yeah. This is very light compared to something like a boys in the hood or menace society where you really get to see that stuff. And with this one with them the happening at college..

"So I would be that'll test. I don't think existed back then but. We the goal was to create. Make sure that you know, all all the characters of what's in there. Yeah. This is your first feature film. And I'm curious what were some of your biggest challenges on it? That was the scary part because we didn't know what we're doing. Right. You never made a movie before. But it was going so well that was your on you missing something hugely important because it was really a fun production. But time, you know, we're suitable summertime and. Place at night, but we would have less than eight hours of my to shoot style. So I remember the scene when my brother, and I thing cameo, and we running down the street from the attack dogs and some of the boss and the summarizing. So we're like, oh shoot in that direction. It's dawn. I said turn the bus around driver the other direction, it's still dark, and we got the shop. And I'm so glad that the the hey love commercial makes a cameo appearance. You know, we new people laugh we were just shameless. Why what what did it take to entertain people? So we put hailed commercial and then with dolemite in there just wanted to put all flavors in there. And it's it's such a nice too. Because feels like Robin Harris is like you said like unfrozen from that age. It feels like he's kind of carrying on that mantle at the Lutely, absolutely everything. Like Robbins Piccolo player joke for me. I didn't think oh my God is this era. Feels like something red FOX say circuit thirty years prior. But it was is it's funny. Now, you know as anything when the movie's ready more there any problems or any challenges as far as marketing this to a mainstream audience. I mean because this played everywhere I remember playing, you know out in the suburbs where I was working at the time. It was definitely Salinger's code is such. I mean, I remember the Cisco and Ebert review there. Roger Ebert love the movie, but gene, but Cisco hated it thought it was about juvenile delinquents. And you know, who are I mean, he just it wasn't even about the movie if needed the culture that the movie came out of he kept complaining about feet, and it was just line. How that corneas response ever? So that and remember there was a theater in Colorado who wouldn't turn the lights off entirely via riots with breakout. Oh, yeah. It was not. Just still. So yeah, I mean, we've come a long way if memory serves bright around nineteen ninety when this came out it was a real renaissance. I remember things like boys in the hood and minister society this in a few other films all coming out almost right in a row, and it just really, you know, making quota Mark. Yeah. It was it was a big deal because I think at that time the biggest black film may have been minister society that many twenty six or twenty seven billion, and we came out for two and a half million dollar budget. We may twenty seven in the US, not international and home video. So and, but they do than that it was it was taking a classic Hollywood Zona, which is so that the T V and reinventing that using cutting it's black culture, and that was sort of. Relation to Hollywood zoo. Oh, wait a minute. We couldn't understand his now, you know, it had a level of security that mental out to Hollywood. And in those days, basically, a black movie was successful and other green lit. I mean, the success of the way in this first moving at at N GM, I'm going to soccer. You know, that twenty dollar box office men a lot to getting movie Greenland, 'cause they said, what could at least meet, you know, ten to twelve million is that's what I'm gonna get you sucker me. So and our success helped Jek city get green list. So it was just this cat a chained effect where either we all did. Well, or we all did that. I remember going to see house party to in the theater, and I didn't realize that it came out the next year that was such a quick turnaround for that move. I came to ask and say, okay, we want to see call. And but the deal was they would pay to say money. We got paid on the last one you're like what? You know? And at the time we literally getting offers every studio when tau, but we wanted to make a sequel folk great for the app to that. They've is solo rely let..

"But doesn't mean it's gonna work till actually did work was pretty amazing. So what was it like working with kidding play? Like, I said they weren't necessarily professional actors, but they do fantastic job. They would just great. I mean, they have to audition for meaning than on this for the head of the studio, and I've always felt that rappers are more predisposed to have an easier transition into acting because in hip, hop, you create a persona your Tele story most of them back. They wrote throw rhymes. So they were kind of awkward in their own medium. So that transition of the little easier and kitten play at salute natural wonderful actors and to work with as was full force who played the bullies. And you know, we're still all their coast to this day. I mean, they're just it just it was just a perfect collection of enormously talented people. This is one of Martin Lawrence is I rolls correct via he had time any little part and do the right thing. I think. That may be his first movie, but I'm pretty sure this is science, obviously, he comes from more of a standup background. I'm curious was he allowed to add a little bit on this. Or did he follow the script pretty much everybody to it? I mean, my was you know, we had a lot of rehearsals, we corporate their ideas in the rehearsals, every you know, and you know, my rule is. Anything I'll hear you out. And if I know snow and that very good and fair everybody 'cause you know, you can't have anarchy. But you don't want to stifle Tennessee people. So Martin who ironically enough worked at Sears salt pepper who had the deuces with says the play. So I mean, it when you know, it was, you know, again, it was a sort of family atmosphere that which is there naturally and Martin was brilliant and some fun to work with the near was his Bill doubt that his wife started was in that I have to ask you about Robin Harris because obviously, you know, with you producing and writing babies kids and everything I'm curious when you first met him, and what it was like working with him. We sell Robin at. In comedy either. And he will brilliant. I mean, we felt like this comedian from some of air that hit been thaw the ice. Life. And we I wanted to cast him. We would all can't have him. Because no one could understand when talks and that really, oh, did we definitely got a cast. I mean, if he just so wrong. So, you know, black that people don't understand that we understand him perfectly. So we put him in the movie, and he was just genius. And you know, we were absolutely wanted him to everything did. And our next movie was going to be made these kids the live action movie, but when passed away I said, you know, what we can't let the Minia memory of Robin Harris pass. So I turned the movie into an animated moving. So that folks would still get to start my last. I always wondered how you guys pulled that off as far as like when that key. Out as he passed away a few here's ago. Yeah. I mean, you know, really grateful to phase I love who banked in with just starting out and in perfect. I knew perfect invitation of Robin Harris. Yeah. Oh, yeah. It was on candy. It it sounded like you guys had recorded that before he passed away, right? I really appreciate how much weight you gave to the Sydney Sharon characters as well. So it wasn't just a kid and play. It wasn't just Chris, and Peter, but it was so much their story as well. It was really a nice balance. I mean, you know, that's just how I was raised. You know, women aren't just props. You know, you know, you having better movie when they're fully fleshed out characters and working with people AJ who were some talented. So funny wanted to build him out, and you know, them as characters kidding play. The pound salt fall to to make, you know, a real, you know, real couples will relationships just made it a richer film. And and and better for the male characters and even enroll riding pheno pets too too..

"That goes such a long way with me. It's almost like I had to remind myself that they were supposed to be. They were supposed to be high school students. It's like I keep saying this. The almost seem like they would be college because these are very mature. They were very short teenagers put a mildly. But at the same time with the sneaking out of the houses like, yeah. I guess we're supposed to be in high school. But again, very very new watched. There was actual depth to some of them. And yet you had on x night where I thought I was remembered it as being a little less raunchy version. But no this. This thing came pretty quick. Kick kicking stuck an ass. Like, oh, yeah. This is. This was not teen at all. But if you Robin hairs makes sense, but this. Thirteen in the lease. But it was a it was kind of a shock to the system, but seeing some of the characters they're different edges. There's that's what made it a much a surprisingly better movie than in may have seen at the times. Because there was a lot of depth to it. It wasn't just comedy and pratfalls for the sake of pratfalls, it'd be nothing against the way movies on what those, but it wasn't like some of the Wayne's movies that are very slapstick. This one actually had had some deaf to it and had like that even though full force yet. They're pretty bad dudes in this. And especially like when stab crosses the line and wants to burn down place house. But the real the real bad guys this movie ended up being the cops. Which is a nice thing to the way that they harass Robin Harris and the harass kid and the way that they make them say I wanna be somebody to them. And I like how the people at the party are kind of fended by that. I was just like I am somebody. But some nice moment when the the people at the party are just like come on you really crossing the line here with this stuff. And that they get their come up and set the end by having the roof that we saw blown off the house, which I thought was in kids dream, but this dream roof come down and smash them at the end is really kind of a nice fuck you too. It was one of those things where you could see it was building toward them getting their come up along the way. We're there intentionally just screwing with anybody who has to be walking up the street, and I can still remember a Robin Harris saying that I was as born in a town call out of out of tops ass, and I feel like a rich. I'm watching that just thinking like yet. Then the sad thing is it's very timely. Unfortunately, it's kinda timely even now that was one of the things that unfortunately, did kind of age will wells seeing that movie in seeing that seeing the police being the the baddest of the bad guys along the way were either as the scene at the party was buried tally where these older black people were there. It's almost like you have that moment where it gets very real very quickly. It wasn't heavy handed. But it was just one of those things you look at that. And almost like you put a push pin in it for later on down the line that one of them is gonna get theirs because it was it was it did Bill over the line. But that was also what some black you were dealing with at the time from the police is being humiliated like that being picked on like that. So that was that was a nice touch to add the movie and yet having them get killed wizard of Oz style at the end of inference is pretty damn funny too. Well. Remember a few years ago? There was a lot of stuff in the news about, you know, police being unfair the two black youths, and there's a lot of violence and killings those kind of things, but I don't hear about that at all in the media these days. So I imagine that's fine. All cleared up. At least fifteen years ago have to worry about that. All right. That's good. That's good. Are we're gonna take a break and plane interview with the writer director of house party reginal Hudson, and we'll be back with that. Right after these brief messages.

Kick us Fluck in. Through super clownish. But I don't think they pass from clownish inst- into more of like a minstrel territory, they're not like overly drawn characters.

That's four. So the group trying to get into the party their music is already playing in the party. And these are guys who had the force outside of just being they were the the warns us Rb group at the time. They did hip hop. They produced music across all different John resum using that many gotten many groups can say that they produce music or UT EPO Hattie Lebel and insane in their career. They did so much. But in a way, they're characters in the movie kind of fit who they are, you know, them, but you don't know who they are till you look back at and I love the element. They added because even in the midst of them being these these heels these bad guys where there constantly just all over all over the movie trying to get kid. It's almost like the light. Hi Okey routine of trying to chase down the road runner. There was still a little bit of extra to them there. What there was that moment where they're saying? Dude, you're going too far or we can win. I'm not here for burn down somebody's house, or when that is still crazy when they go to burn down the guy's house. I'm like, oh my God. Wait. What about found? I'm not trying to do all adder or he has the the half moment when they're in jail and kid tries the talk him into just saying, hey, we just squash this and figure out of this any thanks for a second before basically telling him to f- off. There was a lot of develop a lot of care of development in a movie like this that when you see it at eleven twelve years old, you don't get it. But then you watch it again in your twenties. It's like, wow, this is cool. And I see it almost while. It's so crazy almost thirty years later, and there's so much there that this was a really great piece. This was actually a really great piece wasn't funny. It's amazing. How you're able to make that work. The best can make things like that word. I like the callback on this movie too. I mean, brabin Harris, obviously being informed by a lot of dolemite's work. And then him talking about like, oh, I rented dolemite and that you hear dolemite on the TV when constrain sneak out and stuff. I mean, I love that.

It's like every time I've been signed now, the more I think about it's like it's taking me back to when I was a teenager, really, really cool. But that that was a cultural experience for us. And I don't think we realize it initially how much of a cultural experience it was for us to read the screenplay for this and the father character though, going back to Robin Harris was not Robin Harris in the screenplay. It was just a father character. And then all of the stuff that Harris brings to it. And injecting in his own stand up comedy, the I mean, they basically just turn him loose at the house party once he arrives. And the thing of the the kid with Jerry, curls. That's right out of his routine and stuff, and it's just like, wow. This is fantastic. Just to get those kind of you know, you play to your strengths. You know here. We have this stand up comic.

And I can only imagine now nowadays with all the outtakes and everything else. How great it would have been to have really been there to see how they handled him. And how many other ads he may when he was going after different people my understanding too. And I don't know how much of this is just rumor, and how much of this is actually true that the jazzy Jeff and for rush prints Persian sort of came about because the owed new line because they were sued for sampling part of the name, Rome street music for nightmare on my street. And that was sort of why they were going to do this movie because new lines held this over their heads. But that reginal Hedlund was not interested in forcing these two young men to make the movie with him so decided to go with kidding planes that and I will say kid and play they have a lot of charisma and watching these two guys through the three house party movies in class act. They hold it together. They. Really can do a great job. And I like the way that they set these two characters up as being kind of the the dorky good guy. I mean, the really played up in class act, but as far as like, the dorky good guy and the kind of conniving scheming, not necessarily bad guy. I mean play is not bad. But he's not really a good friend and a lot of times he ends up being kids nemesis, whether he intends to or not, but I have to say, they have the charisma they have the chops. It doesn't feel like were just going to take these two dancer rapper guys and throw them in here. And then good luck with that. They can hold their own with every single actor in this film. They were nuance characters in there were the little elements of that you see when he goes off on on play when he talked with talked about not not having the condom ready. And they were razzing about that equal gets this office says your dog though and talks about the way he treats women and how very clearly..
"robin harris" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"And I love all the jokes about the hair in this movie. And again, going back to Robin Harris. I love Robin, Harris, he is hilarious. And I absolutely love him in this movie. And it's always so sad for me to revisit this. And especially to revisit the second one where there's so much pining for Robin Harris, and he just makes such a big impact on this film that I just can't overstate how great he is in this role. Even though he doesn't have a lot to do. But he kind of makes his role his own. With this a bridge. He was definitely a bridge. State. Rewatching Robin hairs is he was always one of those great what ifs because he was one of those really kind of like it ahead of his times, the timing of everything about him was so great, especially in this movie, kind of summed up who you was even down the little details because there's a point in the in the first movie where he's walking street looking looking for his son looking for kid and the police volume over it is like he's grousing about having to find him. And even just a little detail of you mentioned, I never should have married that white woman which instantly explained why his son kid is that much different complexion from him. And I just found that too. So right, or is that he took a minute to note that detail that little detail in there just little things like that. Plus, he's just he was just so ridiculously funny. This incredibly just really quick witted. Some of his comedy would. Would not go over at all very well today, but a lot of things in that movie are super problematic in two thousand nineteen but it was watching it, Dan and kind of being able to go back to that. It was house party was one of those one of one of those portrait you wanted to know what hip hop culture was in nineteen eighty nine nineteen ninety watchhouse party. Does that's what that's what it was. It's like you mentioned. I think of for me house party was also the dances. Does I was in fifth and sixth grade and a lot of the kids are doing the kid play dance and all the different routines. When we're just we're just in that age. We're starting to kind of understand what wrap was around. I didn't really get super into raffle about ninety two ninety three when I was getting high school. But it was a it's such a coming of age where we see the kid and play dance and all the cool stuff. It was just amazing and they're in the number of people who would become future. Stars in that movie as well really jumped out to me to the thing where play is vacuuming as house and he's doing the dance while he's vacuum in the house. And when he tries to do that that it was really the signature move of kid and play where they would hold one leg one. When ankle with one hand and Unjumble through the angle. I mean, I had a couple of friends in high school that could do that move, and it just completely floored time, I would watch them do that. And then I love that. He screws up that moving ends up tripping over the the vacuum cleaner. Which is great because we've all done that. We've all done that. If you were you were young young black kid in the early nineteen nineties everybody tried to parties friends. I did that for me. It was with a broomstick broomstick law. I will try to keep doing the same step and make sure was able to hang in there and still do it. We were still doing the invoice thing. It when we got the ice pool in the midnight because people would just have fun. They would play angle hurt nobody or rolling kid play..
