In this episode, Marie and Mike get to talk about really nice topics. Last year Fred Rogers was the subject of a documentary, "Won't You Be My Neighbor?," and now he's the subject of a feature film, "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood." Tom Hanks, who qualifies as the nicest actor on the planet, persuasively wears that cardigan sweater as Mr. Rogers. Although this film gives a sense of the beloved television show, its focus is on the friendship between Mr. Rogers and a journalist who interviews him (Matthew Rhys). Marie recommends bringing a box full of tissues to this heartwarming film, and even Mike agrees that the film deserves at least a three-tissue rating. Marie and Mike also talk about the hit sequel "Frozen II," which Marie likes and Mike likes well enough. So, viewers can expect princess power, amusing sidekick characters, winter wonderland animation, and power ballads. This Christmas-timed release practically hands you a holiday shopping list!
