Part 2 of our Totally Scientific Study - Was Adam Sandler Funny? We all remember him being funny and loving his early work but then it all seemed to go downhill. We are asking “was there ever a top of the hill to go down from?” This week we are joined by funny lady Sara Goldsmith to watch Happy Gilmore and get to the bottom of it. How does that fight with Bob Barker hold up? Was Shooter McGavin the greatest Sandler villain? Wait, Ben Stiller was in this movie?

EP 035: Practical Magic (1998)

DISLI Practical Magic

Writer/Director Yulin Kuang wants to know if Practical Magic still holds up so she's brought it to Marshall and Laura for a much-delayed revisit. She's a fan of the romantic cinema but can't really remember if this Sandra Bullock/Nicole Kidman flick was technically a rom-com, but it definitely has something to with witches and love spells and curses, so that's pretty Halloween-y, right?

EP 032: Hot Shots! (1991)

DISLI Hot Shots

Fan favorite Ariana Kaiser returns to the show bringing with her a much-loved favorite from her youth: Top Gun parody Hot Shots! We last heard from Ariana during the episode on Willow wherein she couldn't remember which of these two movies she spent an entire summer at the theaters watching. Possibly both? This hugely-successful comedy from a golden era of parody harkens to a style of comedy we don't see a lot of in modern showbiz and it begs the question: has parody's time passed? Should one feel strange for being extremely attracted to Charlie Sheen? Where is the prop-hot-plate-shaped-like-Valeria-Golina's-stomach at today? I can't promise you we answer all these questions but dammit, we try on this week's podcast!

Writer Paul Bianchi loved The Chipmunk Adventure when he was a kid, but will he still love it now that he's grown up? He drops by Marshall and Laura's place and this rock-n-roll movie raises lots of questions about the simple visions of foreign countries that were fed to us 80's and 90's kids.
