While Ash praises the thumping soundtrack, Gene gripes about the laughable martial arts, and Big D searches in vain for justice. We also talk trust falls, Christopher Lambert, and cartwheels.

Discover how Cameron Diaz dodged a bullet, why nobody should be afraid of Goro, and who the hell Art is in this special edition commissioned by our Shappy Hour viewers.

Plot Summary: “Mortal Kombat” Lord Rayden (Christopher Lambert) handpicks three martial artists — federal agent Sonya Blade (Bridgette Wilson), Shaolin monk Lui Kang (Robin Shou), and action movie sensation Johnny Cage (Linden Ashby) — and mentors them. After intense training, Rayden transports the trio to Outworld, the site of an inter-dimensional fighting tournament. There, the three humans must defeat the demonic warriors of the evil Shang Sung (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) — or allow Sung to take over the Earth.
