The Flop House

All Things Comedy

Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington are friends who've decided to express that friendship not by doing productive or enjoyable things, but instead by watching critical or commercial flops, and then discussing those terrible movies for you to enjoy in your ear-holes. Although, honestly, most of the time they just talk about random bullshit.
