2 Fast 2 Forever #271 – The Christmas Chronicles (2018)
Merry Christmas! (Just don’t let Joe Two hear you celebrate.) We’re back with a bonus episode to commemorate the (first) time Kurt Russell donned the Santa Suit in The Christmas Chronicles, and it’s a Christmas miracle… Dr. Chris Podcasts is here!
Please note that while this is a family friendly movie, it is far from a family friendly episode.
After discussing our favorite Christmas movies (and learning some wild facts about A Nightmare Before Christmas), we run through the 2F2F Christmas movie history and explain the bill of goods that Joey sold Chris to appear on this episode. Joe pulls a Festivus and airs his Christmas grievances.
We try to suss out the “belief” logic in this movie’s universe, talk about the weird timeliness of a specific line (and how it betrays what a Christmas movie “is”), and wonder if Santa is MAGA.
Joe invents a new watch. We all make a pledge for 2023. We pitch a sequel (and hope it’s the story covered in The Christmas Chronicles 2).
