Episode Description: This week, the fountain of youth wreaks havoc on the lives of Meryl Streep, Bruce Willis, and Goldie Hawn in 1992’s dark comedy Death Becomes Her, directed by Robert Zemeckis. Streep plays a vain, aging actress trapped in a loveless marriage who takes a magical potion that renders her forever young, only to discover that immortality comes at a price. Meanwhile, Willis screams, Hawn vamps, and co-hosts Luke and Steve try to figure out if this effects-heavy satire earns its newfound cult status — as well as question Zemeckis’s talent and Streep’s acting. The hot takes come fast and loose in this one.
