We celebrate Halloween with a discussion of Hello Again, a little known ghostly rom com from 1987 starring Shelly Long and Gabriel Byrne. It’s the age old story of a suburban housewife who chokes to death on a chicken ball and then gets necromanced back to life by her sister, then ends up meeting a handsome doctor. In short: insanity.
We’re joined by guest Stacey Sproule to try and make sense of this otherworldly comedy.
Episode 77 – HELLO AGAIN
Join us this week as we tackle the 1998 rom com killing machine You’ve Got Mail. Written and directed by Nora Ephron, based on source material from the 1937 play Parfumerie and the 1940 movie The Shop Around the Corner, this is Tom Hanks’ and Meg Ryan’s third and final film together.
We find a lot to talk about with this monster: is this a sweet love story, a commentary on modern romance and dating, or a capitalist propaganda machine? We’re leaning towards the latter… but at least we have Dave Chappelle to keep us entertained!
