This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM welcome our special guest (and Robin’s sister) Erin to the podcast.  Erin is so ‘very’ with her movie selection: ‘Heathers’! This dark cult classic is directed by Michael Lehmann and stars Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, and Shannon Doherty.

We discuss our favorite Christian Slater/Winona Ryder films, dark comedies in general, and we reveal some of our high school horror stories! We also delve into a Three Stooges social thought experiment, major plot points on forgery, Christine’s hatred of ‘Army of Darkness’ and her theory that ‘Heathers’ is basically ‘Fight Club’.

Episode 027 – Sidekicks

FACT: This week’s episode of THE MILKSHAKE BOOM features Chuck Norris portraying his greatest cinematic character: himself!

That’s right, we’re talking 1993’s ‘Sidekicks’, a martial arts coming of age action film also starring teen heart throb Jonathan Brandis and directed by Chuck’s younger brother (and ‘Walker: Texas Ranger’ collaborator) Aaron Norris!
