Double Edged Double Bill Episode 107: The Cat In the Hat Knows Paddington 2 Is All That

This week, Double Edged Double Bill looks at the world of live action family films! Adam Thomas and Thomas Mariani welcome guest Emily Slade of Why This Film Podcast to talk about two films in which a furry creature barges into people’s lives. First, The Cat In The Hat shows the negative side effects of this as a feline Mike Myers monster gives two children nightmares. Then, Paddington 2 features a charming bear who brings joy to every stiff upper lips in Britain. Together, our trio answer very crucial questions. Do Dr. Seuss stories work as films? Who would be the faces on British Mount Rushmore? What films will they choose for next week’s episode on martial arts films? Well dig deep into our hat and find out what we have to say about that!
