    Found this comment about the Charles Barkley doll on a YouTube clip from the film:

    I wanted to mention the 2nd opinion where the reviewer calls the movie a “show”... my grandma calls all media “shows” and despite the number of times we call them movies, she consistently calls them shows. So there is precedent for this term and my grandma is a really sweet lady

    Was browsing this movie on IMDB, and noticed that the family's last name in Ubriacco. Ubriaco (with 1 c) means "drunk" in Italian. Not sure if that is a coincidence, a misspelling or what, but might explain a lot of what's going on in this trilogy.

    The most important thing about this movie is the Diane Keaton dog wants a slice of lemon with her water. Don't do this. Lemons can upset a dog's stomach and cause vomiting or diarrhea. The small amount of juice from lemon in a bowl of water may not cause problems but do you really want to risk it?

    So I had to Google to see if clam souffle was a thing (hoping against hope that such a monstrosity was pure fantasy) and apparently it is. Here's the ingredients list from a recipe from James Beard's Mother's clam souffle : INGREDIENTS 4 tablespoons flour 3 tablespoons butter, melted 1/2 teaspoon salt Dash Tabasco 1 cup clam juice 5 egg yolks 2 tablespoons chopped parsley 1 cup drained clams 6 egg whites Butter for the casserole No offense to James Beard or his Mother but I still gagged at the thought of this dish. I'm sorry I see the words clam juice and I dry heave.

    How did they not talk about the closing credits Jordy "It's Christmas, C'est Noel" ... maybe because in the States Jordy's "Dur Dur D'etre Bebe" wasn't a hit like it was in the rest of the world .. trust me youtube it.

    Did anyone else think that Olympia Dukakis' pep talk about infidelity was insane? Apparently, her husband was shipwrecked with a bunch of USO girls, but she refused to believe he didn't cheat on her until - years later - she met some of the women and *they* said he didn't cheat on her. Yeah, that sounds healthy. I'm not trying to blame Alley's parents for all their relationship problems, but I feel like at least some of Travolta and Alley's dysfunction should be attributed to them.

    As Paul mentioned, the ad on the taxi cab is for Señor Pizza... which is a callback to a previous Kristie Alley film. What film you might ask? How about the one where Patrick Dempsey is a pizza delivering gigolo! Yup... We're talking about 1989's Loverboy! Oh and the tag line in the trailer is, "His customers always come first." Suuuupppper appropriate easter egg for this kid's film. Or maybe the gang is right and this really isn't a kid's film after all! Trailer:

    Paul seemed to be confused as to why the dogs appeared sound like they were chewing when they were thinking, but I think the confusion is that he and the gang seem to be under the impression that the babies, dogs, wolves, etc. are communicating telepathically. However, I've always been under the impression that they aren't communicating via their mind but rather the words we're hearing is the translation of their own languages - both verbal and non-verbal. That's why in Look Who's Talking Too the children's mouths sometimes move. If you were to remove Bruce Willis and Roseanne Barr's voice overs, as adults, all we would be hearing is baby gurgling, but they are still "talking.". It's the same deal with the dogs. They are just speaking a separate language that only they understand. So, no, the dogs can't speak with or understand squirrels or clouds or whatever. Babies can speak with babies and animals can speak to animals of the same genus. We're just getting a peak into what all their strange noises actually mean.

    Wow, absolutely loved the fact that they had Conan on as a guest. I feel they did a good job of hitting all of the awful/weird things of this film, although I do wish they would have taken a deeper dive into some of them. Here are just a few of the lingering questions I had after watching this... - I know it's been clear that the rules for who talks and who understands who do not make sense, but one other example of that that was not mentioned is the fact that Rocks has a conversation with his mom. In these films human babies cannot communicate with their parents, but apparently puppies have the ability to communicate with their parents. It also seems odd that the film introduces Rocks' parents at the beginning of the film and then completely forget about them. Wouldn't have been interesting to hear Rocks' mother's thoughts on the fact that her owners have just put her babies in a box on the side of the street for anyone to take one? - The sports allegiances in this film are odd. They live in NY, but Julie is a fan of Charles Barkley who played for Phoenix at the time. Travolta makes the comment that at least she's not a "Dallas fan". Now Dallas was a horrible team in '93, but you would think he would hate the idea of her being a Celtics or Nets fan instead. Then there is the whole "Bash brothers" routine that he does with Mikey which is something that was created by Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco when they played for Oakland. These just don't seem to be the actions of someone who lives in New York. - I am glad they called out the fact that Kirstie Alley seemingly has accepted that she and the kids are going to die in the taxi when it crashes in the forest, but I also wanted them to comment on what her plan was after they initially crashed. She tells the kids that she going out to "look for pine cones". Why? If it was a lie to shield her kids from the grim reality, it's a terrible lie that doesn't make sense. And if she was being serious, what were pine cones going to do? Did she plan on using them as a side dish with her clam souffle? - One of the plotlines of the film is that Mikey has become disillusioned about Christmas after seeing the mall Santa is not the real Santa. His parents then do a terrible job (no surprise) of trying to deal with this. First, they do that horrible Chipmunks routine (how long did they take rehearsing that?) that probably would have turned me completely off of Christmas. Then they give in and get him a dog. But wouldn't it have been better to get him the dog for Christmas and say Santa got it for him? The forest ranger does more to re-ignite Mikey's Christmas spirit by playing the sleigh bells on the radio. - Did anyone else notice Kirstie Alley's father is reading the tax form booklet like a magazine when they are all together for Christmas Eve? Man that family really loves accounting!

    I haven’t listened to the entire episode, but my first thought “I wonder what June thinks of Paul’s Mail Chimp impression” since she’s a monkey rights activist.

    I think the difference for me is the past/present is less a "juxtaposition" and more as a continuation. The later 'romantic' story is just as much a story of her surviving as the Holocaust scenes are. That is tragic too. And in the end, she didn't die in a concentration camp, she died trying to survive after the War ended and just could not get through it. The stakes were still high, life or death. I get the critique of Stingo, he is indeed syrupy and fairly weak, but I don't think halving the story in to parts A & B is how its meant to be viewed.

    I wasn't able to make it all the way through the Star Wars Holiday Special on my own. I think it would be more enjoyable as a group experience.

    It's doubly weird because even Terrance Howard at one point admits that Rooster is the next in line to take over. You think the other people would get behind that or think the same.

    Yes! I was thinking that too. Especially since he didn't seem to get a whole lot of respect from anyone up until that point. Like, I get that you shot Spats, but we aren't dogs, that doesn't make you Alpha.

    This movie took me awhile to track down so I'm getting to it late but to me the weirdest thing is the movie loses its sense of humor about halfway through. There are a lot of little throwaway jokes or comedy bits in the first half of the movie and they just slowly start to fade away and let the melodrama come more forward. I would have liked it if that stuff had stayed throughout the film a bit more. Also did Spats have nobody else who worked for him that was willing to stay loyal? Is Terrance Howard's crew Spat's old crew who just shifted loyalty 100% behind him without question?

    Been listening to Threedom and the theme keeps getting stuck in my head, so I made this real quick while waiting for Thanksgiving dinner to finish cooking. Added some little tidbits from some of my favorite characters of each of the three (Scott as Ray Romano, PFT as Lord ALW, Lauren as HoHo!) Hope you enjoy! Thanks to you all for the awesome content, have great holidays! https://soundcloud.com/nomoremelodies/threedumdums/s-MHTnM

    4 out of 5 dentists agree, A Pentagram is a kickass thing to draw on your book cover.
