If the dad joke didn't clue you in already, the "Can't Wait!" crew (with special guest Drew Taylor) took a long, hard look at 1990 technicolor detective classic "Dick Tracy," with special emphasis on the movie's proclivity for disguising respected, well-known actors in bizarrely literal makeup. Other topics discussed include Beatty's little-seen 2008 Dick Tracy TCM special, the movie's very solid twist, and the surprising amount of detail and thought that went into "Dick Tracy's" production and art design. Oh yeah, and the fact that it's a Disney movie.
Tune in next time, when we discuss Tim's pick, another 1990 cinematic fever dream: "Gremlins 2: The New Batch."
