This episode has dad sharing one of his favorite lesser known movies from the 90s: Zero Effect. This one stars Bill Pullman, Ben Stiller, and Kim Dickens who also appears in Lost. This was a really fun conversation that goes into a ton of side issues about why we love film. An amazing first effort from Jake Kasdan as a writer and director. Dad always looks forward to what he’s going to do next.
This week we traveled to New York. The trip started out rocky when our flight was late and then we found out there are 3 Hilton Garden Inns in Times Square and we went to the wrong hotel. After that things turned around and we had an amazing time seeing friends and SpongeBob and Be More Chill musicals. SpongeBob was Cooper’s first Broadway show and he loved it and even lost a tooth during the intermission of the show. Be More Chill was also epic and the audience were all Presley’s people. We are all still singing Michael in the Bathroom! We created lots of new memories in NYC!
