Connection from Previous Film: Richard Dreyfus.

On their FIELD TRIP TO KING TOWN, the team falls down a rabbit hole of a rabbit hole and get stuck in an ouroboros of nostalgia about a nostalgia film; with Richard Dreyfus pining away for simpler times of kids casually smoking and corpse scavenger hunts and not having to deal with It!

Connection from Previous Film: James Earl Jones.

James Earl Jones carries fifteen minutes of plot through what feels life fifteen hours of film, as Robert Shaw fails to pick an accent and Anjelica Huston earns a paycheck (oh, and Peter Boyle splashes around too) in this part of the SINK-OR-SWIM SUMMER TOUR. Tom feels the hype; Dan and Josh "persuade" a celebrity guest to join the call; everybody begs to know what this movie is!

Connection from Previous Film: Sam Neil.

Following the dead stop that was the last film, the team hunts for a better movie on their SINK-OR-SWIM-SUMMER TOUR -- following Sam Neill as he sails away from the calm of his old life and down below with the convincingly-Russian Sean Connery; dreaming of a life of paleontology as Alec Baldwin shadows their every turn! Dan feeds the mind; Tom feeds the soul; Josh feeds everyone a shitty Calzone.
