can't believe this hasn't been done yet, it just might be the ultimate 'how did this get made?' movie.

juliette lewis and giovanni ribisi play the roles of their lifetimes: retarded star crossed lovers. diane keaton is juliette's stern mother (but will she learn a life lesson signified by an end of movie wardrobe change from all black to bright red?) and tom skerritt is her mustachio'd dad. i watched this movie before discovering this podcast - my girlfriend and i literally could not stop asking each other "how the fuck did this movie get made?!". it's a clear case of collective insanity. truly unbelievable. i'm about to watch tiptoes, and i kind imagine it's sort of a 'tiptoes but for retarded people instead of midgets'.

watch this movie - it defies all reason.

For some reason, when I saw "The Other Sister", I thought of the movie from a couple years back called "My Sister's Keeper", where Cameron Diaz and her husband have a kid so that they can use it as an organ farm for their older child that has cancer or something. Hmmmm, the two might be a pretty awesome mash-up. For good measure, you could throw in that movie where Rosie O'Donnell plays a retarded woman, and you'd have "Riding The Bus With My Other Sister's Keeper"!

CONFESSION: I saw this movie when I was in middle school and I'd never seen Juliette Lewis in anything before and really believed she was handicapped.

Then I saw her on an episode of I Love the 80s and my brain exploded.

when HDTGM first started, and announced the email for fans to submit to, i sent this movie in as a suggestion. It's always been my WTF movie. So when i heard about the forums on the mini-ep today, I was elated, and had to get it up on here. I'm just glad i'm not alone.

This movie is fucking BONKERS! When they go to the dance dressed as a swan and dog.... I almost lost my mind the first time I saw it.

One of the things that creeps me out about this movie is that both of the handicapped characters are played by Scientologists. To me, that's like hiring Mel Gibson to play a champion for civil rights.

Let's get a Kickstarter going to get Mel Gibson to play, I dunno, Thurgood Marshall just so we can have such a movie to discuss on an episode of this podcast.

I am so terrible at photoshop, I was trying to get Gibson's face over Brody's on the cover of the Pianist, but Brody's face is faded on it and I can't make it look right
