Julia (Clint’s co-host for our new releases spinoff On Tap) joins us this week to check another movie off Jared’s wishlist – the quirky John Travolta vehicle Michael!
Fresh off his Pulp Fiction success, Travolta leapt straight into this schmaltzy Nora Ephron rom-com, which gave him license to go full Adele Dazeem on a group of tabloid reporters (including William Hurt and Andie Macdowell) hoping to get a picture of a real-life angel – with wings and everything! It’s kitschy and more than a little self-indulgent (the whole thing’s clearly a Travolta vanity project), but it’s certainly got its charms.
Check out our review, along with our custom cocktail and drinking game!
THIS EPISODE’S DRINK:
DRINKING RULES FOR MICHAEL:
- Any time you see Michael do something an angel shouldn’t be doing (smoking, drinking, banging, etc.)
- Every time Michael molts feathers
- Whenever a character sings
FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:
Bob Hoskins’ gruff boss responds to the characters’ return, sans angel, with, “A hoax? A Hoax? A HOAX?!”
Join us next week as we try our hands at being ordinary fuckin’ people with the cult 80s sci-fi punk hit Repo Man!
