UNFINISHED BUSINESS: DEEP DIVE – GOTCHA! (1985)

This DEEP DIVE edition of Unfinished Business TELEVISION looks at the highly underrated dark romantic comedy spy thriller GOTCHA! starring Anthony Edwards and Linda Fiorentino. With amazing European locations and a killer soundtrack, this gem from REVENGE OF THE NERDS director Jeff Kanew got lost in the shuffle when released in the summer of ’85. Yet, it found an audience on video and spawned a mildly controversial paint gun toy line and a Nintendo game! Did you know the other ‘80s heartthrobs who were considered to star? How did the movie’s shocking twist get inspired by the casting process? Find out, learn more, and as always SUBSCRIBE!

And if you sit to the end, you might get a little rare surprise…

UNFINISHED BUSINESS: DEEP DIVE – WORTH WINNING (1989)

This DEEP DIVE edition of Unfinished Business TELEVISION looks at one of the last romantic comedies of the ‘80s (and probably the worst) in 1989’s WORTH WINNING. Pre-NCIS hunk Mark Harmon plays a Philly weatherman engaged in a bet to please 3 women to fall for him and accept a marriage proposal. Why was movie more creepy than charming and why wouldn’t it be made today? Find out and SUBSCRIBE!
