Tequila Sunrise (1988)

Tequila Sunrise Quote: “Let’s see now: you’ve lost half a million dollars, confiscated a ton of useless coke, and been responsible for the murder of a federal informant, and that… that’s just tonight.” – Nick Frescia

Ash makes Shat The Movies history as we motorboat our way through a star-studded film with the coolest movie poster of 1988: “Tequila Sunrise.”

This is a serious movie with serious cops who seriously love peanuts and throwing coffee while sleeping with witnesses and chatting on gigantic walkie-talkies. We’ve got saxophones, sunsets, swing sets, and more twists than a bowl of Olive Garden spaghetti.

In this episode commissioned by listener Rachel C., Gene decodes the noises old Iranian uncles make. Big D can’t decide if the film is stupid or he is, and Ash puts on her scuba suit to explore underwater hot tub sex.

Plot Summary: “Tequila Sunrise” In a seaside California town, best friends Mac (Mel Gibson) and Nick (Kurt Russell) are on opposite sides of the law. Mac is a former drug dealer trying to clean up his act, while Nick is a high-profile detective trying to take down a Mexican drug lord named Carlos (Raul Julia). Soon Nick’s loyalties are put to the test when he begins an affair with restaurateur Jo Ann (Michelle Pfeiffer) — a love interest of Mac’s — unwittingly leading his friend into a police-orchestrated trap.
