Note: Celebrating the film's 25th Anniversary (which just occurred last month, August 14th), William joins me to reflect on the film's unique tone, troubled marketing, past and future reception, smart writing and what the film has meant to us over the years. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the movie on your DVD.
