Episode 85: Great Balls of Fire (1989)

greatballsThe second rock 'n roll biopic for this pairing looks at, arguably, one of the wildest musicians of rock's first age, Jerry Lee Lewis, in the 1989 film "Great Balls of Fire!" Jeff, Buddy, and Chad take a look at one of those performances where you can swear the lead actor is being possessed by the spirit of the rocker he's portraying... except that Jerry Lee isn't dead! Directed by Jim McBride, the film features an incredible performance by Dennis Quaid, perhaps the best of his career, in the lead role as the often out-of-control Lewis! He's accompanied by Winona Ryder, John Doe, the always-entertaining Stephen Tobolowsky, Trey Wilson and Alec Baldwin, with cameos from Steve Allen himself and musician Jimmy Vaughan! And the trio looks ahead at two fun-but-largely-forgotten comedies from the 1980s that revolve around the world's oldest profession for their next pairing!
