Episode 06 - Who Blows Off Elisabeth Shue?

The summer of 1987 rolls along on Out of Touchstone, as Mike and Chad focus on two fun comedies from one of the best years of cinema.  First up is ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING, a classic in the teen comedy genre with a winning performance by the wonderful Elisabeth Shue.  But does the film spend too much time highlighting the negative aspects of a big city?  The episode wraps up with STAKEOUT, as the hosts discuss the film's ability to blend comedy with suspense while showcasing (or mocking) the trivial aspects of police work.

Several actors return to the Disney family on this episode of Out of Touchstone, which focuses on the first half of 1987.

Finally against their better judgment, Mike and Chad delve into the comedic stylings of Ernest P. Worrell and his cinematic debut, ERNEST GOES TO CAMP.
