Movies My Friends Have Never Seen


The podcast where my friends watch classic movies for the first time. Hosted by Nick Nadel. Logo by Tim Finn. 

Nov 8, 2018

This week comedy writer/performer Emily Menez (IFC, UCB) returns to discuss her experience watching the Al Pacino/Robert De Niro/Michael Mann crime classic Heat for the first time.

Join us as we dig into Pacino's insane acting choices, the low-rent TV pilot origins of this dense crime saga, the script's lack of strong female characters, what the waiter was doing during the iconic coffee shop scene and much more. 

Follow Emily on Twitter and check out some of her sketch comedy work

For a different version of Heat, watch the diner scene and shootout from L.A. Takedown, the TV pilot that was basically Michael Mann's late '80s first draft.

Watch the sketch below (made by Emily, Bill Scurry and me) that answers the burning question "What was the waiter doing during the Heat restaurant scene?"
