"You BURNED the dog!"
The highlight of this week's show: Our first-ever conversation with co-host Sean Daly's "forever fiancee," who weighs in on Sean's delivery room behavior and his repugnant pregnant sex fetish. (It's possible I just made up that second part.)
Some trivia we didn't fit into the show:
- Clerks director Kevin Smith cites this flick as his favorite John Hughes movie. (Listen to the podcast to hear which J.H. pic we think deserves that honor.)
- Film critic Roger Ebert, who usually gives John Hughes good reviews, panned this effort, laying the blame primarily on the fantasy sequences: "These bizarre touches are sometimes amusing ... but why are they in this story?"
- The late Paul Gleason ("Breakfast Club") has an uncredited appearance in the film as one of the advertising executives who hire Kevin Bacon. Why he's uncredited is unclear.
- The two funniest celebrity baby-name suggesters during the movie's closing credits: Dan Aykroyd and John Candy, who starred together in Hughes' next picture -- "The Great Outdoors."
Pop quiz: Which John Hughes movies from the '80s have we yet to do a podcast on? No cheating by looking at the list on this page or on itunes.
