It’s sing-a-long week on Beyond The Box Set, as Harry and John pitch unfilmable sequels to the charming – yet also deeply unsettling – musical classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Along the way we discuss Caractacus Potts’ questionable parenting abilities, whether long movies should still come with intermissions and exactly what kind of weird sex stuff Baron & Baroness Bomburst were supposed to be into…
From the return of the Child Catcher – now paired with a murderous Mary Poppins impersonator – to an origin story so bleak it’d have to be directed by Lars Von Trier, if you like your family movies served with a side of surreal black comedy, download our latest episode toot suite!
