This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson and Tanya Ballard Brown talk about buddy movies. From the new 22 Jump Street to classics like Lethal Weapon and the Odd Couple, they'll discuss the different buddy dynamics and if the buddy movie is a dying genre. Then they'll discuss first impressions: what lines, sounds, and scenes set the tone and outline what a television show, movie, or album are all about. All that plus What's Making Us Happy this week.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
