Paid in Puke S2E1: Muriel’s Wedding

On our Series Two opener, we gush about P.J. Hogan’s 1994 very Aussie, ABBA-tastic comedy, Muriel’s Wedding, starring Toni Collette and Rachel Griffiths. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the Time of Valens (aka Galentine’s Day). Amy and Cristina count the film among their very favorites, and Baxter had never seen it.

Regardless, this viewing brought up some stuff for all three of us! We touch on such topics as philandering fathers, emotionally battered mothers, body image issues, early adulthood besties, and inspirational musicians. It’s a lot more fun than it sounds? We also attempt Australian accents with varying degrees of success.
