You Have to Watch This Movie is a podcast hosted by Tony Rodriguez and Drew Mackie. Each week, they ask the people they love to tell them about the movies they love. Say you were dating someone new or made a new friend. Is there a single movie that, if this person said they hadn’t seen it, would elicit the response, “Oh, you have to watch this movie”? That one singular movie — the one you’ve watched again and again — is what this podcast is about.
You Have to Watch This Movie is a TableCakes podcast. For more information on this Los Angeles-based, woman-owned podcast network and its shows, check out the main site. To support this show and other TableCakes podcasts, head to our Patreon.
17: Nicole Byer Loves What’s Love Got To Do With It
In the last episode of the first season, professional cake-taster Nicole Byer presents the 1993 Tina Turner biopic What’s Love Got To Do With It, which features great music, Oscar-worthy performances by Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne, and a rather liberal take on factual events. But does historical accuracy matter much in the face of the majestic perfection that is Tina Turner? Nope. Special appearance by Glen Lakin, a.k.a. Roommate Glen.
