Then She Found Me (Episode 32) - Hot Date with Dan and Vicky
Release Date: 07/15/2016
For her feature film directorial debut, actress/producer Helen Hunt chose this adaptation of the Elinor Lipman novel, Then She Found Me. It took 10 years to get it to the screen and only wound up getting funded when Hunt agreed to star in the lead role and bring her friends Matthew Broderick, Bette Midler and Colin Firth in to play the other leads. The supporting cast is peppered with great New York actors -- Lynn Cohen, Ben Shenkman, John Benjamin Hickey, Geneva Carr and Robert Lupone -- and quick cameos from the likes of Tim Robbins, Janeane Garofalo, Edie Falco and Salman Rushdie.
Dan and Vicky discuss the romantic comedy and give their opinion on whether Helen Hunt pulls off her passion project. Dan also catches us up on his work travels -- from Saratoga Springs to Paris -- and Vicky gives us a quick health check. We hear about all the cool stuff they've been watching, from the top of Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain to the dusty pit of Mad Max's Thunderdome; from the heights of Lucio Fulci's Don't Torture a Duckling to his bloody vision of hell, The Beyond. There's also lots of love for comedian Maria Bamford and her Netflix series Lady Dynamite and the film adaptations of Stephen King's Salem's Lot and The Mist.
Helen Hunt may have a problem getting pregnant in Then She Found Me but Hot Date 32 is ready to pop! Take a listen and leave us some feedback.
