I invited some more friends to come on the Cinema Shame Podcast to celebrate the life and work of Burt Reynolds. In the second of two episodes dedicated to the Bandit, my guests and I talk about The End, Stick, Heat, Switching Channels, Breaking In, and Boogie Nights. and just about everything in between. Despite the 80's being a tough decade both personally and professionally, Burt delivered a number of interesting performances in movies that are largely forgotten or just underappreciated.
