Rotten Tomatoes is Wrong

156: We're Wrong About... Son-in-Law (1993) with Justine Marino

It's time to munch on some grindage, buddies, and celebrate this delicious turkey holiday by looking back at when Carla Gugino brought home Pauly Shore for Thanksgiving in the 1993 comedy classic 'Son-in-Law!'

'Son-in-Law' is Pauly Shore's highest rated movie on the Tomatometer at 32%, but our panel fervently disagrees with its abysmal rating as they can't get enough of Shore's 'Crawl.'

Special guest and comedian Justine Marino joins Mark and Jacqueline to discuss whether Rotten Tomatoes is Wrong about the cultural phenomenon that was Pauly Shore in 'Son-in-Law.'

What is your favorite Pauly Shore movie? Do you think 'Son-in-Law' deserves such a low rating? Or do you side more with the audience and its 59% rating?
