Low Standards: The Beauty of Michael Keaton in Ron Howard's Gung Ho!


In today's episode of Low Standards, John and Matt focus on Gung Ho!, the 1986 Ron Howard movie that features Michael Keaton at his finest. Centering on an American auto plant that's being run by the Japanese, it sticks Keaton between the surly, lazy, oftentimes-racist workers and the uptight, unsmiling Japanese executives to amazing effect. A perfect snapshot of the time, this one's a classic. At least to John and Matt.

      @Donnie Clapp Oops! Fixed now.

    I'll just say this: Clint Howard wears a yellow Pittsburgh Pirates batting helmet through this entire movie.
