RMG 187: Parenthood (1989)

June 26, 2019

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew are geeking out over Parenthood (1989) and

  • sharing life stories
  • marriage & parenting being scary
  • honesty
  • what a shitty name Cool is
  • and much, much more!


The Buckmans are a modern-day family facing the age-old dilemma of trying to raise children the “right” way. At the center of the storm is Gil (Steve Martin), who manages to keep his unique sense of humor while attempting to maintain a successful career, and be a loving husband and parent, all at the same time.

As Gil, and the rest of the Buckmans discover, being the “perfect” parent often means just letting children be themselves.
