Episode 176: Top 10 Films That Shouldn’t Have Worked But Somehow Did

"How did this freakin' movie get made?"
That's what Paul and Wayne are waxing lyrical about this week - they're counting down the top ten films that just straight-up shouldn't have worked, but somehow did!
Some choices are films with a ridiculous premise that no-expected to get the green light. In other cases, it's a production so troubled, the whole film was gonna be left on the cutting room floor. In at least one case, it's just Paul being a combative anus. Also, Wayne wrote this show copy.
