The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996)

Gene Lyons and The King Bee became friends in 1995. Two years later, “The Long Kiss Goodnight” was released on VHS, capturing the heart of a young King Bee who spent the next three decades trying to convince Gene to watch it.

For his 44th birthday, Gene was treated to a pizza and a spot on The King Bee’s sofa to experience “The Long Kiss Goodnight” for the first time. And it was eye-opening, to say the least.

Thanks to listener Jeremiah, the two friends sat down in person, mixed a few old-fashioned cocktails and finally recorded a conversation about what might be Samuel L. Jackson’s finest work.

They discussed how Gene cannot experience extreme happiness without immediately feeling sorrow. They explored how much fun a family actually can have with produce. They even dove into Craig Bierko’s impressive dating history and ’90s America’s naivety when it came to paramilitary firearms.

Was Geena Davis too old for a shift into sexy action roles? Why didn’t police respond to the trail of bodies she left behind? Should Mitch and Charly have ended up together? Who would you cast in a “The Long Kiss Goodnight” remake? And was this movie a waste of good Cox?
