New podcast: ‘Moonstruck’ vs. ‘Broadcast News’

By Steve Spears

It's hard to believe that two epic romantic comedies from the '80s – Moonstruck and Broadcast News – were released on the very same day. But on Dec. 16, 1987, they were. So for this week's Stuck in the '80s podcast, we strive to decide: Which was the better flick?

Oh sure, they were both nominated for a bunch of Academy Awards (though only one won any at all.) And the cast of each movie was stacked with award-winning actors and actresses as well.

In one movie, love of their careers seems to trump love of each other. But hey, whatever floats your boat.

Listen to this week's show and decide for yourself: Which is the better romantic comedy – Moonstruck or Broadcast News?
