Episode 089: "Hotel New Hampshire" & "The World According to Garp"

Updated: Aug 31, 2022

The World According to MG!

Tonight MG takes on a double feature based on two John Irving books, and the results couldn't be more different!

First up, things start off beautifully weird with Robin Williams' dramatic breakout The World According to Garp,

featuring an Oscar-nominated performance by John Lithgow

- but then crash and burn as Rob Lowe and Jodie Foster do their damndest to save the tone-deaf mess of The Hotel New Hampshire!

What went wrong?

Join us as we talk about the difficulties of adaptation, and the risks of too much Wallace Shawn!
