Magnifique! Diane Franklin, the princess of 80’s movies, joins Matt to chat about her role as the French foreign exchange student Monique Junet in Better Off Dead. Diane talks about her character being an ace baseball pitcher, expert skier, and overall bad-ass, why you should have to be able to act without words, the controversy surrounding John Cusack being upset after watching Better Off Dead for the first time, and more. Diane also tells us about her cut prom scene in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, her book Diane Franklin: The Excellent Adventures of the Last American, French-Exchange Babe of the 80s, and her idea for a Babes of the 80’s party. Plus, Matt has a special assignment for all of you Siri users in a new segment called I am Always There Too!

HOLY CRAP! I'm so excited that Matt mentioned Sinister Creature Con! That happens only a few miles from my own home and I've been to other events Sacramento Horror Film Fest and Co put on throughout the year. If you're in/near or planning on visiting Sacramento, Check out their fb page and web page to see what they have coming up. The film festival and midnight screenings they put on are so much fun.
