Flipped (2010)

#RobReiner is in the air at the SGS Headquarters, with #Flipped (2010), featuring the young talents of #MadeleineCarroll and #CallanMcAuliffe, with #AidenQuinn (#PracticalMagic, #TheMission), #RebeccaDemornay (#RiskyBusiness, #Backdraft), #JohnMahoney (#Frasier), #KevinWeissman (#Alias, #Clerks2) #PenelopeAnnMiller (#KindergardenCop, #CarlitosWay) and #AnthonyEdwards (#TopGun, #RevengeOfTheNerds, #ER). 

Bryce moves in next door to Julie, Julie has a crush on Bryce…  Bryce comes from a #hardworking, #whitecollar family, Julie was a free spirit from a #bluecollar family.

Some of the #SGSteam were indifferent to the film, as it is aimed at a very young audience. Despite this, we cover gender roles, the time period, and the class structures.

Accepted (2006)

In this episode, presented by AllThingsFilm.net we discuss #Accepted (2006), directed by #StevePink (#HotTubTimeMachine), starring #JustinLong, #JonahHill, #BlakeLively (#GossipGirl), #MariaThayer (#TammyLittlenut from #StrangersWithCandy), #LewisBlack (#InsideOut, #TheDailyShow), and #RobinLordTaylor (#Gotham's #ThePenguin ).

This is the story of a student who opened his own college. Throughout this episode we examine real life learning institutes with similar programs, the achievements of Justin Long, play a brief game of six degrees of Justin Long, and discuss the #Bollywood Remake. That's right, this little film inspired Bollywood and real life educational institutions. 

We hope you enjoy it, and would love to hear from you @sgspod, you can also find us on Facebook.
