On this week’s show:

Director: Fritz Kiersch. Starring: James Spader, Kim Richards.
Rated R. 111 minutes. Watch trailer.
HEAVENLY BODIES — A single mother buys some retail space and opens her very own aerobics gym, much to the chagrin of the rival health club next door, who wants to shut her down. As in “Dodgeball,” the film culminates in a survival-of-the-fittest (literally) battle between the clubs to see who keeps the space.
Director: Lawrence Dane. Starring: Cynthia Dale, Richard Rebiere.
Rated R. 89 minutes. Watch trailer.
TORCHLIGHT — “Afterschool Special”-type treatment on the dangers of freebasing cocaine, starring “Dynasty’s” Pamela Sue Martin and Steve Railsback from “The Stunt Man.” Ian McShane makes his second appearance on the podcast as a Vaseline-covered dealer of sorts who gets Railsback hooked on happy dust.
Director: Thomas J. Wright. Starring: Pamela Sue Martin, Steve Railsback.
Rated R. 90 minutes. Watch clip.
