Episode 03: MAN OF THE HOUSE

Lyndsey selects the 1995 Disney hit Man of the House, in which Chevy Chase tries to win the heart of Jonathan Taylor Thomas by appropriating Native American culture. Farah Fawcett co-stars.

Talking points: JTT. Stepdads. Disney knows their pre-feature trailers. Aladdin and the King of Thieves. The Aristocats. Gordy. Heavyweights. Tall Tale. YMCA Indian Guides Club. JTT's fashion. Expectations vs. reality. The bad guys. Weird third act genre shift. Appropriation of Native American culture. Raindance montage. The disappearance of Farah Fawcett. Sex and race in the world of Man of the House. Is JTT a latent homicidal genius? Chevy Chase's character. Indian names. Lyndsey's history with the film. Production value. Buy it/rent it/tape over it. Late 90's Kevin Williamson horror.
