What could be the perfect movie for the summer? Well, in the 60's, bikini beach parties were all the rage, and Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello were the two characters that everyone was enamored with.

Well, this movie goes about 20 years into the future, where Frankie and Annette are married, and live in Ohio. On a trip out to Hawaii to get them out of their rut, they decide to stop in Los Angeles and see their daughter, played by Lori Loughlin, and all sorts of comedy and hijinks ensue. 

Join Doug Abel and Eva Standley as we discuss a retro throwback classic, 1987's Back To the Beach.

30 years ago in July, a man-child, his bike, and a cross-country trip gave us laughs galore.

Pee Wee Herman, in his grey suit, red bow tie, and bicycle that he loved more than life itself, took us to the basement of the Alamo, gave us the Tequila dance, and introduced kids the world over to "I know you are but what am I?"

Join Doug Abel and Eva Standley as we discuss a family favorite (and Tim Burton's directorial feature film debut), with Pee Wee's Big Adventure.

In 1986, shortly after Stephen Spielberg's success of E.T. The Extraterrestrial, Disney released a film that was a surprise to a lot of people.

It featured a kid from 1978, who was flown on a spaceship at just under the speed of light. Returning back, he hadn't aged at all - but due to the flight being 8 light years away, he returned to the year 1986, virtually unchanged.

NASA finds out about him, starts doing experiments, and the ship contacts him telepathically before flying around the world to take David home home.

Join Eva and Doug as we talk about the 1986 Disney flick, Flight of the Navigator!
