Stop Ruining My Childhood!

Splash… and Swedish Fish

March 31, 2022

This week, we revisit the Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah romantic comedy, Splash!

Before diving in (pun intended) to the film, we try the classic childhood candy, Swedish Fish and answer the question, "Are these actually Swedish?" 

Then, we swim through some facts and explore the history of the movie. We uncover why this was a Disney film without the Disney name attached, we discuss the casting choices including how both John Candy and Eugene Levy became attached to the project, and we talk about the popularity of the name "Madison."

Does Splash sink or swim? Listen to find out!
