Perfect / Wear Out The Grooves

Repeat guest Eleanor Kagan is back with Aviv and Rachel to discuss the 1985 box office flop Perfect, an American romantic drama film starring John Travolta as a reporter and Jamie Lee Curtis as a never-been-hotter fitness instructor. This is one of the weirdest and worst journalism films ever made. The film features many needle drop moments, including a long, steamy aerobics scene set to the song “Wear Out the Grooves” by Jermaine Stewart. The three discuss Jermaine Stewart’s legacy and some of the interesting and obscure undercurrent themes of the film. Let's sweat it out and dive into this cinematic oddity! Check out Eleanor’s podcast, Welcome to Your Fantasy, to learn more about the history of Chippendales.
