Everyone believes it was Pulp Fiction that brought John Travolta’s career back to life, but they are wrong! It was actually a series of films about talking babies that brought him back to commercial success, and today the Spoiler Filled crew are looking at the second in the series Look Who’s Talking Too, a film that Rich dubs ‘Toilet Training: The Movie’. This time we are: all kinda glad we didn’t watch the first film, impressed by the conception effects, terrified of Mel Brooks playing a toilet and marvel at the amount of disturbing imagery in this light-hearted comedy.

Break out your magnifying glasses and wax those moustaches because we’re getting in the mood for a bit of mystery this week on Spoiler Filled. We finally get around to tackling the work of Agatha Christie by looking at the 1982 adaptation of Evil Under The Sun, starring Peter Ustinov as her famous detective Hercule Poirot. So come and listen as we sleuth our way through the film and discover such interesting facts as: Ant’s recent connection to murder mysteries, Brits abroad, Noon-Day guns, Diana Rigg and Maggie Smith bitching it up to the max and the costumes. Oh my, the costumes!

This week Rich gets very confused in general but also about the 1995 film Dangerous Minds, while Abi and Anthony try to calm him down a bit. Listen in as Abi, for once, is the only person not talking about Matt Dillon and sneaks in another round of Speculate On The Book Time! Enjoy!
PS: RIP Wade Dominguez, sorry to Matt Dillon and the name of the book they were supposed to be reading was probably My Darling, My Hamburger. Peace!
