Episode notes

Adventures in Babysitting

It’s the 3rd week of the MaxFunDrive and boy do we have a treat for you. We are joined by the host of the phenomenal movie podcasts How Did This Get Made? and Unspooled – Paul Scheer! This is a RETRO REWIND episode, which means we’re going back in time to discuss the “classic” 1987 film, Adventures in Babysitting. The crew analyzes how well this movie has aged and chats about some of the cringier moments. Plus, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks’ from 1987.

Just a note about this episode, we recorded it before we postponed the MaxFunDrive back in March, which was basically a decade ago. So some of the references may seem a little outdated. Other than that, it’s literally a perfect episode!

In OLD news we discuss, “The Return of Bruno”, the top box office of 1987, and the 59th Academy Awards.

Staff Picks:
Ify – Full Metal Jacket
Drea – The Witches of Eastwick
Alonso – The Stepfather
Paul – Lethal Weapon

With Ify Nwadiwe, Drea Clark, Alonso Duralde, and Paul Scheer.
