Welcome to The B-Side. Here we explore movies from established stars that flopped at the box office, have been forgotten by time, or remain hidden gems. These aren’t the films that made them famous or kept them famous. These are the other ones.

Today, we celebrate America’s blonde-haired sweetheart Meg Ryan. In honor of a belated Mother’s Day and making her triumphant return, Dan and Conor are joined by Dan’s mom Julie to talk Hanging Up, Proof of Life, and Against The Ropes. Don’t fret, In The Cut and Restoration get some play as well. So many accents! So little time!

A recent New York Times Magazine interview is referenced in the episode, along with the Vanity Fair piece that was the inspiration for Proof of Life.
