    Join in as we discuss our weirdest camp memories, the novelty of a queer rom com, yearning, drool, and an iconic character introduction. 

    Plus: Why did MPAA try to rate this movie NC-17? Why did the town where it was shot get angry? How was this movie's original ending so dumb? And why don't any movie cheerleaders appear to have coaches?
