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.

By the late 80s, John Hughes became one of the biggest comedic filmmakers of the decade. Known mostly for teenage fare, he decided to make a film squared directly at adults starring two of the funniest men of that era, Steve Martin and John Candy, to tell a story of a family man desperate to get home for Thanksgiving but is stuck with a mild-mannered if clumsy trinket salesman as hilarity ensues. But does this film deserve first class or should it catch the bus? Eric, Kent & Lobster will find out.
