It's a movie where Sharon from Grease 2 becomes a kleptomaniac. Thats most of what you need to know before watching Portrait of a Teenage Shoplifter. Michelle and Stephanie also come clean about the things they stole as teens.
"We give this movie 72 thumbs up". This movie stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Helen Hunt and Allie Sheedy. Plus like 33 rabbits. Its Watership Down meets Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Its "I Think I'm Having A Baby"
We dig deep in to the high stakes world of high school cookie sales in this week's movie, All That Glitters. We also wax nostalgic about the movie Troop Beverly Hills and we review the TGIFriday lineup in the winter of 1989.
Episode 50 is a big deal. So is having a new show on the Ear Trumpet Audio network. So, to celebrate both, we invited our newest podcast hosts, Jake and Carrie from Love YA Like Crazy to do an episode exchange. I don't think they knew quite what they were getting themselves into when they said yes, but here we are and they've suffered through The Shunning, starring Michael Landon Jr. Michelle and Stephanie will be recording an episode of Love YA Like Crazy in the coming weeks so follow Ear Trumpet Audio on Facebook and Twitter! Also, you should totally subscribe to Love YA Like Crazy, which you can do at www.loveyalikecrazy.com
In this episode, Michelle and Stephanie talk about all the bad things that could happen to you while riding a carousel and share their love of Golden Girls. Its Have You Ever Been Ashamed Of Your Parents starring Marion Ross and Jennifer Jason Leigh
This movie's punk lead makes Avril Lavine look like Johnny Rotten. Thats right. We watched The Day My Kid Went Punk starring Lenny Kravitz' mom, The Boy Who Could Fly, Dr Bricker from Love Boat and the Governor from Benson. I couldn't make this up if I tried.
Welcome back to Lifemark : Summer Nights. We're back with another ABC after school special that is all about dead kids and onion rings. Its A Family Again. We have the stars of LA Law and Rikki Lake taking us through a journey about grief and hand cranked ice cream.
Summertime, and the livin' is easy. We all remember the joy of summer vacation but its important we don't get too complacent, falling into the peer pressure of being a cool teen. Have no fear. All summer long, Lifemark will be here to give you the cautionary tales your youthful heart craves with Lifemark : Things We Learned This Summer. That's right. We are going pro-Lifetime and watching a dozen ABC after school specials to keep you on the straight and narrow this summer. We kick off our summer series with Schoolboy Father, starring Rob Lowe and Dana Plato. Also, ths movie is called Schoolboy Father which should clue you in to how amazing this will be. We also talk about our patreon campaign where you can tell us what movie you want us to watch and even be a guest on our show. Visit www.patreon.com/eartrumpt for all the details.
Next week will be our one year pod-a-versary so in honor of that and Mother's day and the fact that Michelle and I have been busy saving the world, we are re-releasing our first episode - Mother May I Sleep With Danger
After talking about it for months, we finally watch the D&D cautionary tale Mazes and Monsters starring Tom Hanks. Stephanie talks about how afraid she was of D&D when she was 9 and Michelle talks about what it means to roll a "diabetes check". It was more fun than killing orcs.
Sometimes we struggle on deciding what movie to watch. And the sometimes we luck upon the most amazing made for TV gem. And that's exactly what happened this week when we found Camp Cucamonga. Have you ever wondered what would happen of George Jefferson and Urkel were in the same movie? Wonder no longer as we tie a sweet little bow on the final episode of Candace Cameron Bur-April.
Candace Cameron Bur-April continues with what Michelle and Stephanie THOUGHT was a Hallmark movie but ended up being something much worse. Welcome to the first movie that made Steph actually panic about : Finding Normal
We wrap up Women's History Month with a real downer. Sorry about that, guys. Oddly, it pings on the Bertinelli scale so high so....bonus? It's Homeless To Harvard starring Kelly Lynch and Thora Birch. Get it!
We want to finish Women's History Month strong so this week and next week, we'll be watching some films that celebrate Badass Ladies In History. This week, we watch The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler. We also find out what Stephanie's dog thinks of Nazis. Spoiler Alert. She's not a fan.
