We continue Mike White May, this year all about Francis Veber films and their remakes, with a look at a duo of film with ostensbily the same setup: Le Jouet and The Toy. The Projection Booth's Mike White and Wake Up Heavy's Mark Begley join the episode to talk Richard Pryor, which film actually works, and whether the newest remake is worth checking out.

The two films follow a unemployed journalist who, in a strange turn of events, is purchased by a a millionaire's child to become the titular toy. It's a bizarre setup that, at least in the original's case, not only works but manages to include on scathing social commenary. Each film has its own tone and style however only of one of them is worth checking out in 2024.
