Curators Joe & Nick provide live commentary and where-are-they-now updates on the people in these videotaped obscurities.

“WHATEVER” Weekend

Get in loser, we’re going to the Drive-In for “Whatever” Weekend, October 2nd and 3rd!

We've got two fetch features from the turn of the millennium, taking on the trials and tribulations of teen girls who just wanna fit in, but may need a trip to the mall to go from Monet to Betty.

First celebrate the 25th anniversary of the 90s classic CLUELESS (1995), starring Alicia Silverstone as a Beverly Hills High student with an eye for matchmaking and makeovers, who sets about turning oddball Brittany Murphy from ugly duckling to swan.. Followed by MEAN GIRLS (2004), with Lindsay Lohan as the new girl in school who finds herself in with the in-crowd of not-so-nice ladies. And, yes, perfectly timed to screen on “Mean Girls Day”;)
