Episode 796: Movie Uncles
In this episode, Tyler and David discuss movie uncles as well as the Schumacher Cut.
Last week, Tyler and David discussed parents so, this week, they’re taking a lighter look at parent-adjacent adults, those lovable ne’er-do-wells known as movie uncles. These men, usually without children (or sometimes even spouses) of their own, step up to the plate in unconventional ways for their nieces and nephews when the chips are down. Then again, in other cases, they very much do not.

The tv series “The Mick” is an example of an aunt being saddled with her nephews/nieces.
I saw “Unstrung Heroes” as a kid, but I would not have been able to remember the name of the actor who played the uncle that wasn’t Michael Richards.
