Episode #287: “Care to dance, Mrs. Flax?” | Mermaids (1990)

Families are all a little different. In Charlotte’s family, they never stay in one place too long, her mother never stays with one man for too long, and dinner consists of finger sandwiches with marshmallow kabobs. Catholicism-obsessed teenager Charlotte tries to navigate a new home and new school with the added bonus of being more mature than her own mother… who just so happens to be attracted to anything male that moves. That may also include the local boy that’s got Charlotte ready to lose her religion.

Cher, Winona Ryder, Christina Ricci, and Bob Hoskins star in Mermaids.

This concludes our “Love is in the Air” month, which included: Pretty Woman, Ghost, Wild at Heart, and Mermaids.

Episode #285: “Ditto” | Ghost (1990)

We’ve seen enough movies by now to know that you should never walk down a dark street at night after leaving the theater. It didn’t work for the Waynes and it didn’t work for Sam Wheat. A promising young man with a good job and a woman who loves him, cut down in his prime. Oh, but he’s not done yet. He’s going to go all Jason Lee Crow on his buddy who betrayed him.

Okay, maybe not. But that sounds fun too. I wonder how The Crow would sound with Unchained Melody playing in the background…?

Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg star in Ghost.

This continues our “Love is in the Air” month, which will include: Pretty Woman, Ghost, Wild at Heart, and Mermaids.
