Guess who's back, darlings?  That's right!  After a short hiatus from our little show, Dan is back!  Put him in, coach, he's ready to play! And I hope you caught that we just referenced a song that references a sport!  Because this month we are watching a special request from our new listener, Trey in Texas...the 1980s sports comedy Major League!

When the owner of the failing Cleveland Indians decides to secretly tank the team's season on purpose for personal gains, she drafts some of the most misfit players in the minor leagues.  Unbeknownst to them, they help to further her nefarious plot by losing games spectacularly at the start of the season.  But when their stalwart coach (James Gannon) discovers her plan, he rallies the team to shoot for the top instead!  Featuring performances by a young Charlie Sheen, Wesley Snipes, Dennis Haysbert, Tom Berenger and Rene Russo!

But will this redemption story redeem itself in the eyes of your hosts?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!

While Dan is away, the girls will play!  This month we are joined by previous podcast guest, Kate Holland (check her out on our Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade ep!).  A little while back, Kate suggested watching Cobra Kai as perfect pandemic viewing.  KYD's second episode had been a re-watch of the first Karate Kid, so it only made sense to invite Kate to watch and discuss The Karate Kid Part II before we join her in Cobra Kai's dojo!

Mr. Miyagi's (Noriyuki "Pat" Morita) father has fallen gravely ill, so Miyagi must travel back to Japan to see him one last time.  He is joined by his faithful karate student, Daniel (Ralph Macchio), who looks forward to learning more about his sensei's past history.  When they land in Okinawa, a decades old grudge between Miyagi and former friend, Sato (Danny Kamekona) comes back to plague our heroes.  Miyagi must settle the score with Sato once and for all, while Daniel must fight off an enemy of his own: Sato's nephew, Chozen (Yuji Okumoto)!  But Daniel soon realizes this is no longer a tournament match...this fight is to the DEATH!

Dan and Chrysten weren't such big fans of the first film...will this second installment help to redeem the franchise's honor?  Or will Kate just wind up watching Cobra Kai with no one to talk to about it?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!

You know how sometimes you have a friend and you say to each other "Oh, we should do this thing!" And then you never do the thing?  But every time you see each other you say again that you should do that thing? Well, darlings, this month's episode has been literal years in the making!  Our Fairy Podfather, Patrick Walsh (of iTunes' LGBT Podcast Essential, Scream Queenz: Where Horror Gets Gay) has been begging for us to watch the original Freaky Friday with him for what feels like forever!  So after many conversations where we say we're gonna do the thing, we finally broke down and did the thing. Carpe Diem, or something?

Teenager, Annabel Andrews (Jodie Foster), and her mother (Barbara Harris) just don't understand each other at all.  But one perfectly normal seeming morning on Friday the 13th, the two accidentally switch bodies and have to live the other's life for the day!  During this time, Annabel and her mom realize that they both have their own obstacles each day and that you can't really understand a person until you walk a mile in their shoes...or in their bodies for that matter.  

But will this 70s Disney classic charm all three of our hosts?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!  And while you're at it, hop on over to Scream Queenz and check it out: http://screamqueenz.com/!

Happy Monday, darlings!  

In addition to our Star Wars minisode, we have another full length ep here for your listening pleasure!  And, boy-oh-boy (or rather girl-oh-girl) is it a good one!  This month your hosts are re-watching Steven Spielberg's 90s sci-fi dino blockbuster: Jurassic Park!

When theme park entrepreneur, John Hammond (Sir Richard Attenborough) offers to fund their archaeological dig in exchange for their endorsement of his dino-themed park, doctors Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) are slightly skeptical.  But when Hammond shows them a world where dinosaurs rule the earth again, they can't help but be swept up in the magic.  But as technical difficulties threaten the lives of the doctors, Hammond's grandchildren and the lives of the dinosaurs themselves, we all find ourselves along for the bumpy ride as "Life finds a way."  Plus, hot, hot, hottie Jeff Goldblum!

Will your hosts be as swept away as the good doctors?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!

You guys, we are totally buggin'!  Clueless is 25 years young and your hosts feel very, very old!  So we decided to revisit this iconic 90s flick to celebrate!

Blonde, beautiful high schooler, Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and her best pal, Dionne (Stacey Dash) decide to take adorable new girl, Tai (Brittany Murphy) under their pretty, popular wings.  With the magic of a makeover and some matchmaking, Cher & Dionne help Tai reach the upper echelons of popularity.  But along the way, Cher realizes she needs to do some making over of her own if she really wants to get what she wants! 

It's pretty much a given that this movie rules.  So join us and reminisce about the fashion, the music and all of the other things that make Clueless a classic even 25 years later!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!

We're back on that Disney tip!  This month your hosts take a look back at a movie with one of the most zeitgeist-y moments in film history!  Get your spaghetti and meatballs ready, darlings, because we are talking about Lady & the Tramp!  And no, it's not the so-called "live action" version.

When cocker spaniel puppy, Lady, is gifted to her owner on Christmas morning, she has a truly charmed dog's life.  But when a new baby threatens to displace her from her privileged home, Lady emBARKS (GET IT??) on an adventure with the wily Tramp, a dog who lives primarily on the street and shows her a world she never knew existed.  Both good AND bad!  

This was a popular favorite of kids in the 1950s, but will it be popular with our hosts?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!

Darlings, we are deep into this quarantine.  Your hosts needed a pick-me-up.  Enter Big and the indisputable magic that is Tom Hanks...

When 12 year old Josh Baskin (David Moscow) gets turned away from a carnival ride for being too small, he makes a wish that night to be big.  When he wakes up the next day for school, he finds that his wish has come true!  Transformed into a grown man overnight, Josh (Tom Hanks) goes on a mission to find the fortune telling machine that he made the wish on and change himself back.  But going from a grown-up to a kid again isn't as easy as it would seem!  Directed by the wonderful Penny Marshall, Big is considered by many to be necessary movie viewing.  Then why doesn't Dan want to watch it?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!
