Episode 37: The One & Only

New Year, New Us!

It’s 2019 and we’re starting things off HUGE on Three Way Theater with one of our most requested films of all-time when the boys finally review Carl Reiner’s The One & Only starring the Fonz himself Henry Winkler.

1951: Andy Schmidt is in his last year of college. Taking life easy and always a saucy joke on his lips, he manages to win fellow student Mary’s heart, although she’s already otherwise engaged. But getting a job after college turns out much harder than he expected. Most directors take offense at his free interpretation of his roles. Desperate, he tries in wrestling. To avoid getting beaten up he stages the fights – and incidentally invents show-wrestling.

While Mikey and Jake immediately fell in love with Andy Schmidt JC had some issues with the character even coming up with a very specific conspiracy theory regarding Schmidt. Plus Mikey talks bamboozling his girlfriend into watching the movie, Dustin Hoffman’s connection to the movie, the feature film debut of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, and so much more all on Episode #37 of TWT!

The One & Only is available to rent and purchase on Amazon Prime, and is also available on YouTube if you know how to search.
