Episode 25 - Marriages of Inconvenience

We put a bow on 1990 with two holiday releases on Out of Touchstone: First up, Mike and Chad dissect the unnecessary sequel THREE MEN AND A LITTLE LADY, which once again features alpha males behaving badly, and this time there's no baby to bail them out.  Then the hosts turn their attention to the fraudulent nuptials of GREEN CARD, director Peter Weir's charming but bland love story which brought Gerard Depardieu into the American movie landscape.  Both of these films are labeled as comedies, but are they even funny?  We didn't think so.

Episode 24 - Touchstone Goes to the Tar Heel State

Road trip!  1990 rolls along into North Carolina on Out of Touchstone, bringing forth two underwhelming comedies with fantasy elements (or are they fantasies with comedic elements?).  BETSY'S WEDDING is the first film to be discussed, as Mike and Chad admonish Italian stereotypes and question Molly Ringwald's post-adolescent acting career.  Finally, the hosts look at MR. DESTINY, starring one of the most famous alums from their alma mater, Jim Belushi.  While he can't quite carry the dramatic heft that the movie requires, the supporting roles from Linda Hamilton and Michael Caine are stellar.
