About 220 episodes ago we discovered Feature Films For Families with The Buttercream Gang and now Feature Films For Families has graced this show with its presence yet again by bringing us 1988’s On Our Own. Feature Films For Families does here for orphans what they did for gang problems of the 90’s with The Buttercream Gang, which is to say not very much. Just like TBCG, we highly recommend checking out On Our Own in full on YouTube; the ending is definitely one that will have you scratching your head for days.

Episode 245: And You Thought Your Parents Were Weird!

How many movies feature two inventor brothers who create a working sentient robot that is also inhabited by the spirit of their dead father? The answer is one, one single movie oddly titled ‘And You Thought Your Parents Were Weird!’ Other questions you have might include; why does a movie about a dead robodad have that title? Are their parents really THAT weird? How did the dad die? Is the robot voiced by lovable tv dad Alan Thicke? And does he recite the line “Yoko loko for my cocoa”? All of these questions and more are answered throughout this episode.

Episode 244: A Gnome Named Gnorm (aka Upworld)

A Gnome Named Gnorm (with a hard ‘G’) is a film that seeped its way into the minds of many children growing up in the 90’s. It’s a rare film that most never saw, but those who did remember it forever and can’t stop thinking about it. It’s a true phenomenon that secretly created sleeper cells for the past 29 years and now thanks to us and the powers that be at Amazon, we can continue the tradition of burrowing this fascinating film into the minds of millions.

Episode 242: Little Bigfoot

This week’s film features the story of a vacationing family who come across a Little Bigfoot (that they name Bilbo) and its mother in the woods. The family soon realize that their new furry friends are in grave danger due to a local logging mogul who has sent out his workers out to kill them. While they try everything they can to protect them, we try everything we can to forget the scene of Bilbo being stuck in a bear trap.
