Podcast: Double Trouble (1992)

 Direct download.

The Barbarian Twins Peter and Paul David (from The Barbarians) return to the podcast. Instead of a Conan the Barbarian ripoff that showcases the fact they’re two buff twins, they’re now in a buddy cop comedy that showcases the fact they’re two buff twins.

Peter Jade (Peter Paul) and David Jade (David Paul) are two buff twins whose life paths have diverged. David is a cop in an LA Raiders children’s sweatshirt and mom jeans, while Peter is a slick suit-wearing cat burglar. Despite their estrangement, they apparently still coordinate on workout regimens and mullet hairstyles, but that’s another story.

When Peter steals diamonds and a secret key code for a diamond vault, all-around super-villain Philip Chamberlain (Roddy McDowell) is out for blood. To solve the case, the two brothers must team up and stop the heist before it comes to fruition. Also David Carradine is in one scene.

I couldn't find a trailer so here's the entire movie.

Some Notes:
  • Story by groundbreaking auteur Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium, Ultraviolet, One Tough Bastard).
  • If you know the best way to flip an airplane without snapping the wings off please write a WikiHow entry for it.
  • Fun Fact: The Raiders were in Los Angeles before moving to Oakland.
  • Fun Fact: Satellite dishes used to be bigger.
  • Star Trek's James Doohan appears as the sitting police chief in the film, both status-wise and literally.
