Joining us for the discussion is Nick of the nicksaysboo YouTube reaction channel!After we briefly discuss the first film's production woes, we go into the many reasons how the sequel improves upon nearly every aspect of the already wonderful original film. This is, of course, mainly due to Christina Ricci's expanded role and the introduction of a delightfully unhinged performance from Joan Cusack.Plus: political commentary, the joys of being privileged, reading the Addams's as a queer family unit, and what might be the best Thanksgiving play ever put on stage.

It's time to turn the Thanksgiving tables on the colonizers, practice your tango, and think about Debbie's needs as we get all together ooky with Barry Sonnenfeld's Addams Family Values (1993). Should we give the incomparable Joan Cusack most of the credit for making this sequel better than the original? Or does it go to the incredibly precocious Christina Ricci, who might be the best child star of her generation? Are Angelica Huston and Raul Julia the ultimate relationship goals on-screen couple? And is Uncle Fester's O face in this movie even creepier than Dan Ackroyd's in Ghostbusters? All we know it that we want to find the kind of loving acceptance the Addams Family bestows so easily.

As educators, we sometimes need a spark. One great place to find that inspiration is in movies. In Episode 234 of Class Dismissed, we highlight some of the most inspirational movie scenes for teachers. The movie scenes that made our list include… Stand and Deliver (Rotten Tomatoes Score 82%) Los Angeles high school teacher Jaime Escalante (Edward James Olmos) is being hassled by tough students like Angel Guzman (Lou Diamond Phillips). But Jaime is also pressured by his bosses, who want him to control his raucous classroom. Caught in the middle, he opts to immerse his students in higher math. In our highlighted scene, Escalante tries to convince his jaded colleagues that they need “ganas,” which translates to desire. School of Rock (Rotten Tomatoes Score 91%) Overly enthusiastic guitarist Dewey Finn (Jack Black) gets thrown out of his bar band and finds himself in desperate need of work. Posing as a substitute music teacher at an elite private elementary school, he exposes his students to the hard rock gods he idolizes and emulates — much to the consternation of the uptight principal (Joan Cusack). In our highlighted scene, Finn discovers his students' potential as musicians and his potential as a teacher. Mr. Holland's Opus (Rotten Tomatoes Score 75%) Composer Glenn Holland (Richard Dreyfuss) believes that he'll eventually write a transcendent piece of music, but in the meantime, he's taken a job at an Oregon high school. In our highlighted scene, Holland has a breakthrough with one of his struggling students. Lean on me (Rotten Tomatoes Score 69%) In this fact-based film, a New Jersey superintendent, Dr. Frank Napier (Robert Guillaume), watches helplessly as East Side High becomes the lowest-ranked school in the state. With nowhere else to turn, Dr. Napier enlists maverick ex-teacher Joe Clark (Morgan Freeman) to take over as principal of the declining school. In our highlighted scene, Clark catches some students in the bathroom and challenges them to recite the school song. Their response surprises the hard-nosed principal. Remember the Titans (Rotten Tomatoes Score 73%) In Virginia, high school football is a way of life, an institution revered, each game celebrated more lavishly than Christmas, each playoff distinguished more grandly than any national holiday. And with such recognition comes powerful emotions. In 1971 high school football was everything to the people of Alexandria. But when the local school board was forced to integrate an all-black school with an all-white school, the very foundation of football's great tradition was put to the test. In our highlighted scene, Coach Herman Boone, played by Denzel Washington, takes his players to a hallowed ground to prove a point. Finding Forrester (Rotten Tomatoes Score 79%) A unique relationship develops between an eccentric, reclusive novelist and a young, amazingly gifted scholar-athlete. After the novelist discovers that the young athlete is also an excellent writer and secretly takes him on as his protégé, they develop an unlikely friendship. As they learn more about each other, they learn more about themselves, and ultimately, with the help of his new mentor, the basketball star must choose the right path.   Dead Poets Society (Rotten Tomatoes Score 84%) A new English teacher, John Keating (Robin Williams), is introduced to an all-boys preparatory school known for its ancient traditions and high standards. He uses unorthodox methods to reach out to his students, who face enormous pressures from their parents and the school. In our highlighted scene, Keating explains to his students the importance of the arts and self-purpose.

Cinema has had a long relationship with cigarettes, starting in the early 1920's right through to the 50's where your favourite star was almost certainly aggressively hawking their product directly to you in their latest film as well as hacking up globs of green and brown sputum in between takes. Legislation and the momentum of social opinion saw a dramatic decline in depictions of smoking on screen over the years but let's face it, if you ever want to establish your character is tense or hedonistic or self-destructive, if you ever need to show they are stressed, have just had sex or are about to undertake a heroic suicide mission, if you need a single thing to show your audience that your protagonist is impossibly cool then you're not going to be doing that with a vape are you. We take time off from our busy lives to bring you the Top 5 Cigarettes, a discussion so good it will take your breath away. GET OUT is Jordan Peele's sensational 2017 horror and follows photographer Chris as he runs a dizzying gauntlet of trying to remain politely affable whilst attempting to not be too offended when he meets girlfriend Rose's liberal parents for the first time in a wearying weekend away. It's MEET THE FOCKERS with racism then, right? Well not quite. A movie which intentionally plays on the fear of white people, for example the worry that young black males might reasonably have of experiencing violence in predominantly white American suburbs or the existence of apparently well-meaning surface-level non-racist liberals who turn out to be monsters perpetuating schemes of marginalization, subjugation and literal appropriation, this is an astonishing debut with Kubrickian style attention to detail and foreshadowing, clever dialogue, tight writing, a moody and evocative soundtrack and new ideas and discussions represented on screen. An absolute must see from a unique voice, already its targets seem a little dated with the US having culturally and spiritually regressed about a century since 2017 and the subtle threat of neoliberal racism now far outweighed by the more overt xenophobia and bigotry of the hard right, which seems to have more of a platform than ever. It's the end of winter and Quack the duck has just finished his latest installation of Snow duck art in PEEP AND THE BIG WIDE WORLD. When a bored Peep and Chirp discover the astonishing things you can do with beaver, life will never be the same for either of them again. Narrated by Joan Cusack and set up to promote an interest in exploration and education, one of the dads was less than impressed by the scientific content.We love to hear from our listeners!

To mirth, to merriment, to manslaughter! What defines a loving family? Is is the rosy-cheeked cheery-faced privileged bullies at Camp Chippewa, or is it The Addams Family? Pause for thought. The answer is, and always will be, The Addams Family's honest depiction of love and acceptance. This is not only on full display once again in Addams Family Values, but includes a clear message from writer Paul Rudnick on America's republican views on "family values", and how that is always code for exclusion and hatred. Addams Family Values is timeless; a perfect Thanksgiving movie, a perfect Halloween movie, and the perfect depiction of a familial love that can be any race, any sexuality, any belief and any gender.

This week, a special guest co-host enters the fray and Jason MacLeod stops by to aid in the discussion of a weird 80s comedy starring... Daniel Day-Lewis?! Yep. They discuss the film Stars and Bars, a movie seemingly tailor-made for Hugh Grant years before Hollywood had created Hugh Grant the dopey romantic comedy star. They talk about the lack of jokes (seems to be a theme for these kinds of movies), the harrowing domestic abuse subplot, the hotel canal, the insane dinner table scene and much more.

Tony Bill's directorial debut 'My Bodyguard' holds a special and heartwarming place for the 99% of us not fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to have been the most popular kids in school.  'My Bodyguard' is filled with respect for the difficulties of everyday teenage life in a realistic manner, and features wonderful performances from 1980's teen actors like Matt Dillon, Chris Makepeace, Adam Baldwin and Paul Quandt. The film, I posit in this episode, offers a more honest portrayal of teen life than any of the more-successful and better-known John Hughes films of the era, and goes to surprising depths in exploring male friendships, latchkey kids figuring out their place in the world, forgiveness and the setting of boundaries even when it seems most difficult.  Most Recent Previous Episode is "If You're New To The Pod Start Here" Links to episodes about High School movies we've done on the pod: 'Heathers'  'Carrie' 'The Warriors' 'Mean Girls'

Also, Laurie Hardie might be a real-life Tess McGill (aka Melanie Griffith in "Working Girl"), finding herself working through a bit of office conflict, getting some validation from Anna (think Joan Cusack as Cyn)...all while having a good attitude and practicing great discipline as she does what Elsie from "Frozen" would do: "Let it go, let it go!" In the end, Laurie lives happily ever after. She even wins Harrison Ford's heart....or not.
