“Moment by Moment” Podcast Movie Review

Lily Tomlin and John Travolta in Moment by Moment

Moment by Moment – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 100

“I was counting every single moment until this movie ended.”

Daniel and Corky celebrate Episode #100 by welcoming producer/podcast doula Johnny Flores back to the podcast to review Moment by Moment. This dreary drag of a drippy romance stars Lily Tomlin and John Travolta as lovers who look like and possess the sexual chemistry of siblings. Moment by Moment  announces its indifference and ineptitude in the opening moments, and then reinforces it over the next several thousand moments.

Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss address book leave-behinds, skulking skills and foot-ography parties.
