Hey there, dorks. Hosts Sonia Mansfield and Margo D. dork out about 1985’s “St. Elmo’s Fire,” directed by Joel Schumacher and starring Rob Lowe, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Emilio Estevez, Mare Winningham, and Andie McDowell.
“St. Elmo’s Fire” was released shortly after the infamous New York Magazine article that anointed this most of this cast as The Brat Pack. Sonia and Margo D. discuss the movie from start to finish because they feel St. Elmo’s Fire burning in them.
You’re not going to believe how out of hand this is going to get.
Can men and women really be friends, or does the sex stuff always get in the way? Hosts Sonia Mansfield and Margo D. try to answer that question while they dork out about 1989’s “When Harry Met Sally,” starring Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan, Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby.
Hosts Sonia Mansfield and Margo D. pay tribute to actress/director Penny Marshall (RIP) and talk about 1992’s “A League Of Their Own,” starring Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell and Tom Hanks. Besides, they think there are men in this country who ain’t seen their bosoms.
One more thing, Sonia is kicking herself for not putting “This Is America” by Childish Gambino on her list.
Note from Sonia: “When I sat down to make my list, I didn’t think to put music on my list, but this song and video by Childish Gambino more than deserved to be on my list. I feel like a real dope for not including it. I watched the video countless times, read all the think pieces and – of course – listened to the song. It is definitely one of my favorites of 2018, and it absolutely should have been on my list. This is a huge oversight on my part.”
