WTF Happened to Tango & Cash?

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Hollywood has had its fair share of historically troubled productions. Whether it was casting changes, actor deaths, fired directors, in-production rewrites, constant delays, budget cuts or studio edits, these films had every intention to be a blockbuster, but were beset with unforeseen disasters. Sometimes huge hits, sometimes box office bombs. 

For our latest episode we explore the late 80s actioner TANGO & CASH, which stars Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell, Teri Hatcher, Jack Palance and a dude with a really big chin. The production was a troubled mess that involved rewrites, a new director and all kinds of other issues that made us wonder how it even made it into theaters. Sure, it's a fun enough flick, but man is it a crazy mess chock full of one-liners, explosions, bloody shoot outs and even ends with a freeze frame high five! Seriously, WTF Happened To This Movie?
