Movie Meltdown - Episode 146
This week we do our best impression of a gourmet coffee show on PBS, as we roll into a one-two punch of Marlena Moments. All that before discussing this week’s Sofa Theater feature - “The Incredible Shrinking Woman”. Loaded with an impressive cast, anti-consumerism messages and a gorilla flipping you off. (I think we have our work cut out for us.) Plus a “One from the Vaults” memory from the film’s star Lily Tomlin!
And after we do our part to help society with Movie Meltdown’s public service announcement, we go on to mention… going to third base, an Easter-themed neighborhood, subdued but still obnoxious, Gandhi eating Mayor McCheese, Jane Wagner, going to jail for the Lord Jesus Christ, that pistachio suit, stock gorilla suits, Jello shots… two birds with one stone, why is Lily Tomlin so hot?, Concepcion, the trashiest drunkest pseudo-bikers you could ever find, Barbie Dreamhouse, the screaming box, why women aren’t funny?, Jesus riding a T-Rex, Henry Gibson, The Keystone Kops, 80’s high back-butt, characters grow… people change, Dinosaurs and monster trucks, JT, Raymond Carver, Rick Baker, Mike Douglas, Pussy Bow Blouse, AH!, the twin-pack sidetrack, toxic soup will save us, and the fact that it looks like a swingers party - and everybody’s ugly!
Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for “The Incredible Shrinking Woman”. Go watch it now, for spoiler-free listening.
