Episode 39 - A Chorus Line

Trying to get a straight, honest answer out of an actor is as difficult as spending an entire musical without actually singing a song. Alex and Julio join Michael Douglas in a cruel, grueling, enlightening journey through an 80s Broadway rehearsal as The Contrarians finish their tour of showbiz! Critics might have scoffed at this adaptation of the hit show,"A Chorus Line", but that's probably only because they were intimidated by Douglas' overpowering manliness and charisma. That was their loss because this movie has it all: dancing, songs, heartbreak, cool flashbacks and, goddammit, more dancing.

Also, on Real Talk: The Contrarians ask for your suggestions for an upcoming "Female Filmmakers Multi-parter!"
