Topics included: The changing representation of the everyman’s domestic interior in cinema, the changing representation of the everywoman’s beauty in cinema, and the changing representation of everyday consumer goods. Mr. Mom was written in 36 hours by John Hughes; it stars Martin Mull, Len Trexler, Ann Jillian, and Grace from Ferris Bueller.

Recommended snack accompaniment: Schooner Tuna

To ensure your film is synched with this Tweak, please do the following:

  1. Load your media into the player and play the film until you see a logo for ‘Sherwood Productions’ appear on the screen.
  2. When you see the logo shimmer/glimmer, hit your Pause button.
  3. Start the Tweak and wait for us to say, ‘3..2..1..PLAY.’ When we say ‘play’, hit ‘play’ to continue the film; our movie and yours should be playing in synch.

You will have ample time to get in position during the several minutes of opening banter of the Tweak. If you are not set up by the time we are ready to start, simply pause the Tweak and get it together.
