Video games! Fred Savage! Video Games AND Fred Savage? A match made in heaven. Released in 1989, we had to make The Wizard the final stop on our Savage September tour because it combines Fred Savage with classic video games--two things we hold near and dear to our hearts. Plus, bonus random Tobey Maguire cameo AND 3 new original songs (with stolen melodies) sung by yours truly. Honestly, is there any other way to close a fantastic Savage September?! Didn't think so.
IS there anything scarier than having Daniel Stern as your father? Oh probably just having Maurice the gross monster as your best friend! Released in 1989, Little Monsters is the 3rd stop on our tour of Fred Savage classics. Although we love this flick, we can't help but point out that it's very gross and that it's probably best if you do not eat during it. So grab your flashlight and see if you can find out who pissed in your apple juice, it's Little Monsters time!
Get excited for the best body swap movie to come out of 1988! Not the most well known of the Savage September selections, but Vice Versa starring Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage holds a special place in the Sweetie's collective hearts mostly because it's the only movie where you'll find an 11 year old swearing like a sailor and drinking martinis aka a typical Saturday night for us! Just kidding. But we're not kidding about the fact that Fred Savage is at peak adorbs-ness here. So hold onto your freaky Thai statues, say I wish, and get ready to swap bodies with your 45 year old, overworked yuppie dad!!!
Wooga wooga wee, jacks! Released in 1988, Big has been a part of our family's favorite movie canon since oh...forever! Join us as we discuss the finer points of the flick like Zoltar's scary devil eyes, booby grabbing and what thing in Josh's phat loft style apartment you would most want to own! Note: We experienced some sound issues during this one and while we think we operated successfully enough on it there might still be some hiccups--so hang with it!
Look out, it's SAVAGE SEPTEMBER! This month we're diving head first into our favorite Fred Savage flicks. This week we're catching up with our buds Westley and Buttercup as we wax poetic about the ultimate cult classic: The Princess Bride. Made in 1987, the Princess Bride was a true family fave filled with sword fighting, giants and Rodents of Unusual Size. So grab your MLT sandwich and get ready to get Savage. September. Oh yeah.
Our good buddy Gene Wilder died this week at the age of 83 and in his honor Sweetie and Sweety recorded an in memoriam episode dedicated to the best movie that came out of 1971, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! This movie came out quite a bit before our time, but we were obsessed with it as children. Don't miss our in-depth discussion of our favorite songs and chocolate bars from the film and BONUS Sweetie warbles off an amazing (i.e. horrible) rendition of Veruca Salt's "I Want It Now". RIP GW, you'll always be our everlasting gobstopper!
