In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a pair of comedies take centre stage.

The much-loved 1999 film Galaxy Quest was originally a much darker, foul-mouthed film. And Harold Ramis was attached to direct. But things changed quite a bit…

Role Models changed director too, and found itself in a race against time to its release, with a lot of improvisation, and some Jason Bourne-esque fighting.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
