It's an old school Tom Cruise double feature! This week, Kris for the very 1st time finally experiences 'Risky Business' (1983) and 'Cocktail' (1988), two early Cruise films that feature the youthful pursuit of The American Dream through hard work, entrepreneurship, prostitution and bartending with choreography. The meandering discussion includes Risky's important lessons about hookers, Balki and Booger, the hotness of Rebecca De Mornay and her work attire, running a brothel in your house, Joey Pants!!, Risky's strange sex scenes,Tom Cruise's actual height, ELISABETH SHUE, the Cocktail soundtrack, romantic waterfalls (should they be chased?), standing on top of bars for poetry, the saddest L.A. stripper ever, dancing in underwear and the real Coughlin's Law. "Sometimes you just got to say...what the heck." This episode is rated PG-13, but a hard PG-13 because, again, we talk about hookers and strippers.

This week, we hit shuffle on Netflix Watch Instantly and land on the 1989 super-cheesefest 'Earth Girls Are Easy.' Yes, the extremely odd movie about sex-starved aliens inadvertently crash-landing their Oscar Wienermobile spaceship in an L.A. valley girl's pool. As one of us succinctly describes it, "What the crap is this??" Also...Which of us actually liked this movie (and why)? Are earth girls really that easy? What were Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, Damon Wayans Jim Carrey and their agents thinking? What is the Jeff Goldblum Look that constantly slays the ladies? Julie Brown or Downtown Julie Brown? Why does Krissy keep bringing up 'Schindler's List' every movie we watch? How do birth control pills really work? What should the (never happening) sequel be about and should James Cameron be involved? Tell ya friends! Tell ya wife! This episode is rated PG-13.
So what do the 90s movies 'Ghost' and 'Sleepless in Seattle' have in common...? Dead spouses! Oscar winners! A protagonist named Sam! Krissy's newfound love!! Seriously, how K went so long without ever seeing either of these movies -- but especially SIS, a movie that has 'KRISSY' written all over it -- is beyond us. Join us as we drink wine and Justin accuses Meg Ryan of being a stalker of 'Fatal Attraction' caliber, Krissy inexplicably defends her love for Bill Pullman (while still pursuing Tom hanks on the side), and we both ponder the magic combination of hot people and pottery. Also discussed with varying degrees of incredulity and jealousy: just HOW it's possible that Demi Moore looks better now than she did in her 20s. I mean really, woman's got a time machine. ...With a resident plastic surgeon inside. Also, we totally get the director wrong for 'Ghost.' Sorry, Jerry Zucker. This podcast is rated PG-13! Enjoy!
Everyone's seen 'Temple of Doom,' right? Well, Krissy hadn't. So we watched it annnnd talked about it a whole bunch. Discussion includes Justin saying "like" a whole lot (he blames stupidity/cold medicine), what really happened with Krissy & her hatred of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,' which 2 characters will forever be known as Blanket Jackson & Tater Tots, what to do (or not do) when served monkey brains for dessert, the dangers of getting a beer with Mola Ram, the stupidity of a bulimic army & much more. Rated PG-13 because we also talk about child slavery & hearts being torn from people's chest cavities. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.
