Welcome to Couch Potato Theater here on the Fandom Podcast Network. On Couch Potato Theater we celebrate our fan favorite movies! Those hidden gems, cult classics, guilty pleasures, box office winners ...and failures! When your movie comes on your TV, you love what you are watching so much, you're not getting off the couch! And that is the definition of what our show is all about.
Join Kevin, Kyle and Hayley for this very fun Couch Potato Theater podcast as we look back and celebrate one of the most entertaining film adaptations of The Three Musketeers. The Three Musketeers is a 1993 action-adventure comedy film from Walt Disney Pictures, Caravan Pictures, and The Kerner Entertainment Company, directed by Stephen Herek from a screenplay by David Loughery. It stars Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Chris O'Donnell, Oliver Platt, Tim Curry, and Rebecca De Mornay. The film is loosely based on the 1844 novel The Three Musketeers (Les Trois Mousquetaires) by Alexandre Dumas. It recounts the adventures of D'Artagnan on his quest to join the three title characters in becoming a musketeer.
The Three Musketeers Plot Synopsis:
The three best of the disbanded Musketeers - Athos (Kiefer Sutherland), Porthos (Oliver Platt), and Aramis (Charlie Sheen) - join a young hotheaded would-be-Musketeer, D'Artagnan (Chris O'Donnell), to stop Cardinal Richelieu's (Tim Curry's) evil plot: to form an alliance with enemy England by way of the mysterious Countess D'Winter (Rebecca De Mornay). Rochefort (Michael Wincott), the Cardinal's right-hand man, announces the official disbanding of the King's Musketeers. Three, however, refuse to throw down their swords - Athos, the fighter and drinker, Porthos, the pirate and lover, and Aramis, the priest and poet. Arriving in Paris to join the Musketeers, D'Artagnan uncovers the Cardinal's plans, and the four set out on a mission to protect King Louis (Hugh O'Conor) and France.
Kevin, Kyle and Hayley discuss why this film is one of their favorites from the 1990's and represents everything that Couch Potato Theater is all about.
