Does this thing still hold up? That is the question we ask ourselves in every episode of this podcast, in which we revisit the shows that have stuck in our brains, for reasons both good and bad. Join us on a fortnightly journey as we tackle our nostalgia for movies that might not be as good as we remember them being.

    YNFA 057: Honey I Shrunk the Kids, or My Science Child Neglect

    YNFA 057: Honey I Shrunk the Kids, or My Science Child Neglect

    Jump on the family dog like it’s Shai-Hulud and avoid near death experiences at far too young an age as we fall into 1989’s family movie night classic Honey I Shrunk the Kids. Does anyone else have extremely strong feelings about Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Creme Pies? Why were oversized obstacle courses such a pop culture touchstone of the late 80s/early 90s? Do we need to start a website to let moviegoers know if the ant dies too? And did anyone else spot Buffy’s mom and get very excited? We’ll answer all your questions after we finish this giant turkey that probably tastes gross.

    YNFA 056: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, or Children Should Be Pralined and Not Stirred

    YNFA 056: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, or Children Should Be Pralined and Not Stirred

    Sharpen your sweet tooth and buckle up for one wild boat ride as we gobble our way through 1971’s Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and the 2005 remake Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (and some of us choke on the 2023 Wonka). Should anyone even try to match the genius of Gene Wilder? Why in the world would anyone leave their child alone with Johnny Depp’s terrifying Wonka. And how did it take us this long to play the classic F*ck, Marry, Kill? The only way to find out the answers is to enter our increasingly treacherous podcast factory. Otherwise, you get nothing. You lose. Good day sir!

    YNFA 055: Sister Act and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, or Guinan Thee to a Nunnery

    YNFA 055: Sister Act and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, or Guinan Thee to a Nunnery

    Get ready for a two-fer as we don our nun-drag and raise our voices for Whoopi Goldberg’s Sister Act and its sequel. Has a life of poverty, obedience and chastity ever looked so dang fun? Has Catholic guilty ever been so successfully played for laughs? Why is Kathy Najimy such a national treasure? And is Lauryn Hill’s voice the only redeeming part of the sequel? We’ll get back to you after we perfect our Motown choreography.

    YNFA 054: Cry-Baby, or Campy Nowhere

    YNFA 054: Cry-Baby, or Campy Nowhere

    Warm up the water in your tiny tin bathtub and pull out your pastel pedal pushers hat as we bebop into John Waters’s Cry-Baby. Did Waters achieve the ultimate level of Postmodern metatextual campiness by creating a pastiche of his own film style here? Can the power of a quality goth accessory really change hearts and minds? Is this perhaps the best Willem Dafoe cameo ever? And is Kim McGuire, aka "Hatchet-Face", basically the biggest badass who ever lived? We’ll let you know after this sloppy, sloppy make-out session.

    YNFA 053: Flashdance, or Twerking Girl

    YNFA 053: Flashdance, or Twerking Girl

    Warm up that blowtorch and slip off your bra through your shirt sleeve as we splash into 1983’s Flashdance. Why were butts so flat in the 80s? Did Nair literally and figuratively scar a generation? Can we give Jennifer Beals forever props for championing the off-the-shoulder look? And we all know about that iconic scene, but why is the rest of this movie so very very wet? We’ll give you our answers in the form of this interpretive dance.

    YNFA 052: School Ties, or Goy Will Hunting

    YNFA 052: School Ties, or Goy Will Hunting

    Don't let the scholastic stress get to you, and prepare yourself for some ethnic slurs as we enroll in 1992’s School Ties. Is young Brendan Fraser an actual Classical sculpture come to life? Was anyone expecting this cultural drama to actually have a complete thrilling sports scene in the middle of it? And does that shower scene mean there is footage out there of Damon and Fraser dong? We sometimes have answers but waspy white dude will always be pricks.

Nostalgia is a trip

Sometimes you a movie shines bright in your memory as a fun, innocent romp--and then you watch it again and you realize it's anything but. That's what is the most entertaining part of this podcast, the realization that much of the media that helped form our impressionable young brains was kind of a mess.

I like this

I’m jealous that these folks get to sit around and talk about these old movies with their friends. They go off on tangents talking about other movies like Die Hard and Gremlins 2 and I want to talk about those.
I think you should make it your goal to keep reminiscing until you’re reminiscing about movies that came out after you started your podcast.

Positively delightful!

Each of the contributors has a moment every episode. It makes for a well-balanced listen. I don’t always share all their preferences, but these are engaging conversations. I really appreciate that there’s clearly some thought put into the films they’re choosing and research is brought into the discussions. 5/5
