Release Date Rewind : The Wedding Singer (25th anniversary)


Whoopadeedoo! Mark welcomes rom-com fan and filmmaker Amos Posner on the show to travel back in time to not only 1998, but to 1985, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Wedding Singer! The hit movie starring "cinematic soulmates" Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore - in their first of three rom-com outings together - was released on February 13, 1998, and it still feels like the best karaoke night or 80s costume party (another great job by designer Mona May!). The guys talk about how middle schoolers at the time were obsessed with Adam Sandler, plus they praise the rapping granny, discuss how Jim Carrey was considered to play the villain Glenn Gulia, and thank the talented Carrie Fisher for strengthening Drew's role as an uncredited writer.
Release Date Rewind
Movie nerd, filmmaker, and anniversary celebrator Mark J. Parker brings a friend on each episode to discuss movies (and sometimes TV shows and music) that are hitting milestone anniversaries of release that month. Think 20th anniversary, 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 75th, you get it! They'll dive in together, discussing fun facts, memorable moments, and what makes these movies worth a rewind all these years later. Let's get nostalgic! The podcast logo is created by Greg Clements. The theme song is the instrumental version of "Dance This Out" by singer/songwriter Kyle Motsinger and producer Smoke and Mirrors.
