40: Dick (1999) with Alison Zimmer
We get perky and political this week as movie expert Alison Zimmer of Mongrel Media and Drunk Feminist films brings us 1999's Teen Comedy/Political Satire “Dick”. We talk deep cuts from Ryan Reynolds's early Canadian career, Bruce McCullough's fabulous coif, how you would pitch a movie as weird tonally as this one, and miscasting dogs. As a bonus, Alison helps us understand Canadian film distribution. Don't worry, every dick joke that could be made is made by this film already, so we don't go there. Dick is currently available for rent on iTunes.
