THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLELooking to be forcibly removed from your comfort zone? Then "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" is the movie for you!

This week, Tim Hayne, Phil Pirrello, Rachel Horner, and Tony Maccio talk about 1992's most disquieting, lactation-inducing, politically incorrect thriller, "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle." Directed by Curtis Hanson (yes, that Curtis Hanson), "Cradle" follows the exploits of a vengeful nanny named Peyton (Rebecca De Mornay) and her hapless, far less interesting victims: asthmatic mom (Annabella Sciorra), Lloyd Braun from "Seinfeld" / dad (Matt McCoy), adorable little girl (Madeline Zima), sassy redhead / nosy best friend (Julianne Moore!), and mentally challenged Ernie Hudson. This movie works hard to make its audience feel as uncomfortable as humanly possible, and, for the most part, it truly succeeds. Sinister, nipple-exposed breastfeeding, anyone?

Tune in next week for Phil's pick: Michael Bay's two-and-a-half hour Aerosmith music video, "Armageddon." You won't want to miss a thing.
