Hosts Dick, Gene, and Ashley evaluate Elizabeth Schue's initial love interest in the iconic teen comedy Adventures in Babysitting. Were all 80s heartthrobs young and cool? In this case, maybe not!
Mike comes up kind of recognize him. It's Bradley Whitford, and this dude has had. He's had a good career. He's done television. He's done theater work. He's done writing. He's done some directing. He's a playwright. He's established a career that is worthy of a Juilliard trained actor, but at this point he was unknown. This was his first big break. The only thing he had done with some TV. He did. The Betty Ford Story was a TV movie, and then he had ah, bit part on the equalizer. So he pulls up in that red Camaro with the so cool license plate that was his car. What the fuck? Bradley had some balls on him after the equalizer. He must have taken that sweet equalizer cash and bought the camera and been like, I'm coming to the top baby. That makes me so disappointed because I love Bradley Whitford. I was a huge fan of The West Wing and, you know, he plays Josh on West Wing, and it was kind of fun to see him and what I thought was going to be a role where he looked young. But he looks 45 already. He has a receding hairline. I mean, he doesn't even look like he's in college. I mean, he looks like a grown ass man, and I've said it before on the podcast. So this is just an eighties thing that teens look oldest fuck and eighties movies. I mean, even Elizabeth Shoe is beautiful. She does not look like she's 16, 17 years old. I mean, she looks like she's much older than that, but, I mean, the license plate thing is just throwing me. It's really it's really disgusting thing. So when Chris opens that door and Mike is standing there, I thought that this was like a blind date, like some much older guy showed up and she was like, What the fuck? And they're like, Oh, no, this is her boyfriend. They've been together for a year, and the only thing I could think of is this. Casting was intentional, like we're supposed to find no redeeming qualities about Mike. So there's no debate over whether he's worthy of this absolutely dazzling Elizabeth shoe, right? Like if you could imagine if he was the hunky dude, then you'd be like, Oh, well, you know, maybe she likes because he's hot. In this case, it's very clear to us. I think, that she likes him because she doesn't know her own self worth, right? Like that's That's the point of casting things guy with receding hairline and like a dumpy leather jacket. And he's got those sweet ass aviator glasses with the wraparound arms, you know, in case he's out on his crotch rocket. He's in a car. What do you need, todo?
