42 – Prom

As the weather becomes more pleasant and your social media timelines are full of endless memes about how it’s gonna be May, only one thing is on the mind of America- unquestionably, the prom! Whether you’re a high school senior, some sophomore who really shouldn’t be involved in all this anyway, or a lumpy and uncompassionate adult, the prom is probably the thing around which your entire life has revolved. And frankly, that’s all the reasoning Disney needed to make a movie about it, with very little regard for anything else like plot or compelling characters or stakes. Leigh, Brendan, and Chris gear up for the end of the school year by watching and discussing this 2011 teen comedy and drinking a spiked punch to keep their whole high school dance theme going. Listen, won’t you, and relive your own heady prom night (assuming your prom night was a chaste PG affair in your high school’s gym and absolutely NO ONE had sex before, during, or after it).

41.5 – Mary Poppins Returns

Disney took an old film of great acclaim

Can you imagine that?

And made a sequel that’s more of the same

Can you imagine that?

New actors but a similar plot

In some ways charming but sort of not

There’s decent choreography but also BMX

What was with those guys biking on the ramps?

When Leigh saw that sequence on a plane she said we had to chat

So we all watched this Poppins pic

Then we recorded this right quick

Can you imagine that?
