Episode 31 - Welcome to the Family

January 18, 2021

We bring 1991 to a close on this episode of Out of Touchstone, with two films featuring families adding new members.  First up, the hosts discuss BILLY BATHGATE, the organized crime thriller starring Dustin Hoffman and a young Nicole Kidman.  Both Mike and Chad agree that the acting and storytelling are superb, and wonder why this wasn't a bigger hit.  Finally, we wrap up the year with the remake of FATHER OF THE BRIDE, as Steve Martin attempts to fill Spencer Tracy's shoes as a man reluctant to watch his daughter grow up.  The movie has issues but also has a heart to it.  So long to another year of Touchstone films!
