Some of the movies we've watched for this podcast (read: Adventures in Babysitting) have started to show some serious cracks in their foundation all these years later. That is not the case, however, for White Men Can't Jump, a movie that still holds up pretty brilliantly (some perplexing T-shirt choices notwithstanding) more than 20 years after it was made. We break down the movie in Episode 8 of The Throwback Show below (and we'll post some more movie-related links right after we drop in this media player)...
