Episode 15 – FATHER OF THE BRIDE (1991)

Episode 15 – FATHER OF THE BRIDE

Join us for a new episode where we discuss the 1991 film Father of the Bride, starring romantic comedy veterans Steve Martin and Diane Keaton. We kick off the wedding season with this remake of the 1950 original, about a dad letting go of his little girl as he, for some reason, has to do most of the organizing of her ludicrously expensive wedding to marry a guy she’s only known for three months. Oh yeah, and she’s only 22. Because all girls just can’t wait to give up their youth to be handed over from one man to the other… cough.

The film also begs the question, why isn’t there more Martin Short? More Martin Short please.

Episode 10 – DEFENDING YOUR LIFE

This week we watched the 1991 Albert Brooks film Defending Your Life, which is both lovely in its suggestion that one can find love in the afterlife, and terrifying in its suggestion that the soul’s continued existence could be at the hands of Rip Torn and a woman with too much plastic surgery. Join us as we discuss life after death in Judgement City, the effortless charm of Meryl Streep and Albert Brooks, overcoming fear, food guilt, romantic comedy grand gestures and of course, the 90210 connection.
