What do you do when your ridiculous Eric Roberts podcast has to cover a prestige drama featuring such intense topics such as the AIDS crisis, assisted suicide and right-to-die? You invite renowned movie and television critic Simon Abrams on the show to do all the heavy lifting! 1996’s IT’S MY PARTY is a star-studded affair, and tackles the controversial subject matter with sincerity and heart, thanks to a game (though mostly straight) cast, and the obviously personal investment by director/writer Randal Kleiser. We also talk about CELEBRITY ISLAND, our favorite Guillermo del Toro movies and all things Eric Roberts. LET’S LISTEN!
As always, check out ERIC ROBERTS IS THE MAN on Twitter, or come chat ER (or anything else) on our Facebook group. Don’t forget to head over to iTunes to subscribe and rate the show. If you like it.. tell a friend! Our theme song is (unofficially) officially endorsed by ERIC ROBERTS!
