This weekend is all about... [say it with me] CANDYMAN... CANDYMAN... CANDYMAN... CANDYMAN... ok STOP!

But hey if horror ain't your thing we've also got John Cena and Lil Rel Howery in VACATION FRIENDS, a screwball couples comedy hitting Hulu, and the dark side of PBS's permed out peaceful painter Bob Ross in a documentary on Netflix.

Speaking of Netflix, He's all That, a gender-flipped reimagining of She's All That premieres this weekend and got us thinking about what movies we'd wanna see recast with opposites and why!

And... finally... we'll each take a whack at some of the latest movie news!

You can find links to all the movies they talk about in the show notes right here.

Angie is a successful surgeon in New York City but finds herself wondering what her life would be like if she had married her former boyfriend Tyler, who is now a successful sportscaster. She takes the train home after work one night but instead of arriving at her apartment in Yonkers, she somehow finds herself transported to her hometown in Connecticut 10 years in the past. At first, she's naturally disoriented by her unexpected time travel but slowly acclimates. With the advice of the train's enigmatic conductor (Lloyd), Angie navigates her visit to this Christmas past. As she works to figure out how to get back to the future, Angie has the chance to reconnect with her family and longtime friend Ben; she even teams up with her sister Kristen to help her parents, Evelyn and Marty, rekindle their romance. Along the way, Angie gains a new perspective and discovers what — and who — is truly important to her.
