The Mike's gotta be brave, they gotta jump in... To this week's movie!!!

Mike Butler and Mike Field discuss brain clouds, existentialism, and volcanos during this look at the 1990 Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan film "Joe Versus the Volcano", written and directed by John Patrick Shanley.

They'll talk the meanings and symbolisms that exist in nearly every frame of this film, the look of the film, and whether or not you can truly classify the film as straight-up comedy.

So, grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits to the left and right of you and settle down once again for Forgotten Cinema!
