Paid in Puke S3E8: Reality Bites

reality bites ep imageOn today’s episode, we pay a visit to the GenX saturated year 1994 with Ben Stiller’s directorial debut, Reality Bites, starring pod fav Winona Ryder and Janeane Garofalo. It doesn’t hold up quite as well as we’d hoped as we learn in what is perhaps our longest Hot Probs segment to date. Is Troy Dire the shittiest love interest of all time? Just how bad is it that Helen Childress’ script sidelined the one gay character and made the AIDS crisis all about white women?

Still, Keggers With Kids reveals that the youth of today can find some things to like about this film even if they will never understand what Lelaina sees in Troy.
