Episode 28: [Movie] Bailey’s Billions

A dog inheriting its owners entire fortune? Something that only happens in movies, right? Well, not always. This week we are talking about the 2005 movie Bailey’s Billions and the real life animals that inherited fortunes we could only dream of.

When we get discussing the movie, we make sure to address the pressing issues like; why was there such a great cast in such a terrible movie? How would you feel working for a Doggy CEO? Why does a Border Collie have a lava lamp collection? Is derpy Dean Cain better than made-over Dean Cain? Plus Kate has a confession that we’re sure no one will be shocked about.

Are the pants too high waisted, even for the 90s? Will Ron Perlman ever play more than just a villain? And who is that famous face with a great dye job? Tune in to find out!
