In the 250th episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, an all-time science fiction classic, and a very difficult comedy sequel.

1987’s RoboCop needs little introduction. Yet the ultra-violent crime-battler was the result of two diffierent film ideas being brought into one. And a bit of a battle with the American ratings board was involved too.

Jim Carrey was contractually obliged to make 1995’s Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, and it’d put him off sequels for the bulk of his career. Not surprisingly: it proved to be a very, very difficult production.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
