CONTENT WARNING: Sexism, switched at birth trope, tokenism.
This week in our 80’s Ladies series, Fiona Howat (What Am I Rolling?, The DM's Book Club) joins us to talk about a movie only Diana seemed to know about before today. Not that it’s a bad thing - it’s just that this wasn’t one of those Saturday afternoon TV movies, cable classics, or movie store shelf grabs for most people. Which is a shame, and a delight that Disney+ put this back up because it’s actually pretty great! Yes, there’s nothing new going on here, and most of our male love interests are just a mess. But the double-twin, switched at birth story and the presence of two absolute powerhouse leading ladies makes this an absolute must watch. Line up your putt and get ready for more 80’s Ladies as we talk about Big Business!
