Yes, yes. it’s Halloween next week but this week on Someone Else’s Movie it’s all about candy canes and life lessons as we carve out the big slice of holiday ham that is Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square.
Hey, that’s what Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp, co-writers and co-stars of the very silly, very charming Dicks! The Musical, wanted to talk about, and I go where the guests want to take me. And it never hurts to spend some time with Dolly Parton, even if she’s playing a goofy angel out to stop Christine Baranski’s Scroogey villain from selling an entire town to developers. It’s a very silly movie. But as Josh says, the songs do slap.

And go see Dicks!, because lunacy like that is a special and precious gift, and the Sewer Boys need all the friends they can get.
And of course there’s always Shiny Things, which last week tackled Barbie and The Last Voyage of the Demeter in one mailing and the new 4K editions of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Videodrome, because that is how I roll. Have you subscribed? You should subscribe. Dolly would, I bet.
