On this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by Maggie Kruger, and they’re geeking out over Trapped In Paradise (1994) and

  • the good folks of Paradise
  • arses & bellends
  • Christmas bah humbug
  • being Trapped In Bullshit
  • and much, much more!


It’s Christmas Eve and the Firpo brothers are hoping for a Silent Night – no alarms, no bells, no police sirens! 

Nicolas Cage, Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz are the larcenous Firpo brothers.   Bill is a good-hearted guy doing his best to keep pathological liar Dave and kleptomaniac Alvin out of trouble. But the two small-time crooks lure their brother into robbing a bank in the small town of Paradise, Pennsylvania, where pulling off the heist is a snap compared to getting out of town after a snowstorm hits.  

For the brothers soon discover that all their big-city smarts are useless against the unsuspecting, good-hearted townsfolk who shower them with kindness at every turn.
