Lesson 77: The Hitman’s Bodyguard – Hilarity in Vulgarity

Aug 23, 2017 | Chad Riley, Eddie Villanueva, Movies, Podcasts, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers discuss the hilarity of vulgarity in The Hitman’s Bodyguard (2017), the bromantic action comedy you’ve heard so much about starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. The profanity-laden film follows two highly trained specialists—one an assassin, the other a private bodyguard—trying to overcome an aggressive team of mercenaries and reach the international criminal court at The Hague…and bickering all along the way.

In movie news, we pay tribute to the late Jerry Lewis, who passed away on Sunday at the age of 91 after a storied career in Hollywood that spanned more than 70 years.
