Arthouse Legends Podcast

Welcome to Arthouse Legends Podcast - Where High Art and Geek Culture Collide! The goal of this podcast is to take a look at critically acclaimed and well-received films and consider if these films truly deserve their revered status in the cultural zeitguest. Using our combined film knowledge, geeky obsessions and general fart jokes, we take a bite out of much-beloved films, sometimes in love, other times in scorn, but never out-of-bounds.

In 2002, actress-comedian Nia Vardalos teamed up with producing partners Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson to bring her one-woman play to the big screen. The film My Big Fat Greek Wedding recounts a Greek Chicago woman's courtship and wedding to a non-Greek and the clash of cultures that occurred. The film swelled with word-of-mouth buzz and over the course of several months became a sensation. But does the film deserve to say "Opa!" or does it need to apply some Windex? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster don their tuxes and crash the wedding.
