2 Fast 2 Forever #258 – Boiler Room (2000)
Bro. It’s the Vin Diesel lap, and our first pit stop is one of Joe Two’s favorite movies, Boiler Room. Get psyched, bro. We’re joined by Brian Rodriguez (Uncle Francis’s Wine Cellar), who quickly bonds with Joe over past viewings of this movie, while Joey (as predicted) lacks all nostalgia for turn-of-the-century content. We talk about the movie’s accessible quality, how it wears its influences on its sleeves, the most relatable moments, and how it regularly opts for “cool” over believability. We also talk about “the” Ben Affleck speech, the wild alternate ending, and Vin Diesel’s production company. Brian shares a nerdy movie wish, Joe forgets how math works, and we pick the “most Dom moment” in Boiler Room.
