The Goods: Some Kind of Wonderful (1987) – Rise of the cleft chin

Dan has a weird obsession with a specific kind of romantic comedy in which best friends fall in love. Hear him analyze this specific set of tropes, and then dissect John Hughes’ example of the format, as Brian discovers Back to the Future parallels and embraces the almighty butt chin. Dan admires Watts and her ambiguous sexuality, while Brian stands up for Lea Thompson.
