Episode 20. X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
With the recent release of Logan, Allen and Chris look at the first Wolverine spin-off. Snikt! Snikt!
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the X-Men series was a star making, break out performance so it was only a matter of time before he got his own spin-off solo film. Which is how we got X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a film so bad it made Allen and Chris drop to their knees and scream to the heavens.
In this episode:
How to waste Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool
Allen burns Will.I.Am
Liev Schreiber, the worst kitty cat since George Galloway.
Terrible, terrible special effects
And dildo names!
Remind yourself of the film here:

The worst video of all time. George Galloway, former Member Of Parliament, pretending to be a cat. Watch if you dare:
