"Love is patient. Love is kind. Love means slowly losing your mind." Today on the pod Madeline (with her Phoebe Buffay sick "sticky shoes" voice), her aunt Pandy and her cousin Harley talk about the 2008 film "27 Dresses". How does Katherine Heigl have that huge apartment on an assistant's salary? Who's in this movie? Ed Norton? George Burns? ED BURNS! They talk extensively about Malin Ackerman's eyebrows (or lack thereof) They discuss the best ways for brides to pick bridesmaid's dresses and sometimes brides pick dresses that are a little ugly to make themselves look better. James Marsden has the best cheekbones in the game and Benny and the Jets is the most misheard song ever written. There's some coughing, Madeline loses her notes (and finds them), they marvel at the comedic talent of Judy Greer. Aunt Pandy points out every soap opera actor and Stella contentedly nurses in the background.
Madeline and performer/extraordinaire/chanteuse/Foley expert Anijah discuss the 2003 flawless book to move adaptation "Holes". They discuss the lack of interest in the cover art, the fact that this movie for Madeline is "a Flintstones episode", the iconic line readings, the song choices, the stunning visuals, and how Rick Fox and Vanessa Williams were the Dax Shepherd and Kristen Bell of their time. There's talk of magical realism, the legend/moment/icon EARTHA KITT, cute onion salesman Dule Hill, the agony of the love story between Kate and Sam, the importance of character actors, the beautiful resolution of Sachar's writing, SPLOOSH, Texas weather, the Yelnats family curse, the best Disney movies and much much much more.
