VIDEO: The Greatest Game Ever Played (2005)

Get ready for another hotel room crossover filmed at MAGFest, with cameos galore! Joey meets up with sports movie reviewer Iannone to watch The Greatest Game Ever Played, starring Shia LaBeouf as Francis Ouimet, who in 1913 became the first amateur golfer to ever win the U.S. Open.

    I helped film this!  Marvel at my shitty camera-work!

    • MephLord

      Needed more shaky-cam…especially with crazy Tedesco and his not Joker laugh.  I also rather liked Ionnone’s contribution, especially the Hartford Whalers shirt.  When the Whalers, Jets, North Stars and Nordique relocated, NHL died for me.

        You mean the No-ker laugh 😉

        I’ve always wanted to work on a review with Iannone. Hell, even break formula once in a while!

        • Necroglobule

          And I suppose the fact that he looks just like Mike Stoklasa from Red Letter Media had nothing to do with that? 🙂

    • Joseph Tedesco

      I should have put the camera in focus before handing it over, but I guess we live and learn right? Though to be fair, the music of “Always Sunny” makes everything better!

    • Necroglobule

      Oh I’m marveling, Mendo. I am MARVELING!

       What was it like working with Shia LaBeouf?

  • Thomas Stockel

    This was an interesting change of pace and I enjoyed it.  This is one of those films I would never, ever watch due to my indifference to golf and The Beef both.  However, it was a fun review.

    • Joseph Tedesco

      Thanks! Truth is golf is another one of my hobbies outside of animation/cartoons. I may even work on a smaller webshow covering golf and its’ current events (don’t quote me though!).

      • Necroglobule

        If you ask me, golf movies peaked with Caddyshack.

        • Joseph Tedesco

          Not just movies; but discussing tournaments, tech, tips and such.

          • Necroglobule

            Face it. Everything peaked with Caddyshack. After Caddyshack came out (which I wouldn’t call Rodney Dangerfield the star, it’s more accurate to call it an ensemble) we as humanity might as well have packed up and went home, because it was all downhill for mankind from there.

          • Joseph Tedesco

            yes… which is why Caddyshack 2 was utter garbage! It makes me want to punch Randy Quaid in the face (no offense to him).

          • Necroglobule

            Seriously, but for me I want to punch Jackie Mason. The guy’s supposed to be this comedy legend, but I have never once laughed at anything he did. Ever. Throughout time. Also, Jackie’s character in that movie was SUCH AN ASSHOLE. I found myself rooting for Robert Stack because at least his character would help you solve a mystery about aliens and ghosts and highway serial killers and the ghosts of highway serial killers who are also aliens.

            Though I’ve always thought that it would have instantly made Caddyshack 2 awesome if Frank Welker had used his Megatron voice for the gopher.

  • Necroglobule

    I really don’t get all the Shia LeBeauf hate. Especially for the days before Michael Bay dug his claws into him and there was even such a thing as Shia hate.

    • Joseph Tedesco

      I think most of it stems from his leap from the disney channel to bigger projects. As a whole I don’t mind him. Though those transformer films… 🙁

      • Necroglobule

        Exactly, the hate seems to come solely from the Transformers films. His only real flaw is that he makes a much better sidekick than a lead. He’s not a bad actor, he’s just been in some very bad roles.

    Separated at birth 🙂
    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

    • Joseph Tedesco

      Well, the cat’s out of the bag! No pun intended… 😀

    Thoughts going through your mind when sitting on a bed in a hotel room and the guy next to you starts taking his shirt off?

    • Joseph Tedesco

      My thought was how many times I was going to have to see this clip while I edit this review 😛

  • $36060516

    Holy crap, that guy you hit has a head made of glass (based on sound effect)!

    Too bad you couldn’t work in a “Twin Peaks” reference (Mark Frost co-created that show)!  Though it might have been before your time, come to think of it…
