Episode 47 - Dead-pan Humor

November 22, 2021

We wrap up the summer of 1993 on Out of Touchstone by looking at three comedies involving resurrection and unconventional love.  First up is MY BOYFRIEND'S BACK from Touchstone Pictures, a wickedly dark comedy with an outstanding supporting cast (featuring several stars in the making).  Both Mike and Chad enjoyed the wackiness of the film and wish Hollywood would produce more like it.  From there, the co-hosts compare this zombie romance to two other films in the Disney catalog, focusing on the themes of fathers disapproving of their daughter's taste in men (SON IN LAW from Hollywood Pictures) as well as humor in the morbidity of coming back from beyond the grave (Walt Disney's HOCUS POCUS).
