Welcome to THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED STREAMING CLUB, where film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold catch up on older movies one or both of them have never seen before, as chosen by YOU, our listeners!

This week on THE STREAMING CLUB, Bibbs and Witney pluck out THE APPLE, a cult classic movie musical from 1980, about a pair of idealistic musicians who get sucked into a hellish disco/new wave nightmare hellscape of sex, drugs and rock and roll!

THE APPLE premiered to boos and vandalized movie theaters, but now it's got a reputation as a charmingly weird relic of a bygone era. But how good is it, REALLY?

Welcome to THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED STREAMING CLUB, where film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold catch up on older movies one or both of them have never seen before, as chosen by YOU, our listeners!

This week on THE STREAMING CLUB, Bibbs and Witney explore one of the most notorious duds of the 1990s, based on one of the most popular novels of the 1980s! THE BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES stars Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis, Melanie Griffith and Morgan Freeman, and completely fails to dramatize, satirize, or suggest it knows anything at all about social tensions in New York City.

Is THE BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES the worst Tom Hanks movie ever made? Let's find out!
