Q: What do you get when you combine the witty writing of Bonnie Hunt and Don Lake, with the irresistible charm of lead actors David Duchovny and Minnie Driver, and a lovely Chicago setting?


A: The delightfully funny and heartwarming rom-com “Return to Me” (2000). 


Interspersed with reflections from Minnie Driver* about the filming experience she referred to as “an incredibly happy time,” this episode explores everything from Bonnie Hunt’s triple-threat contributions as writer, director, and actor, to the incredible supporting cast that featured Carroll O’Connor in his final film role, to various features of “Return to Me” that set it apart from typical rom-coms of that time… and so much more!

You won’t want to miss this lively episode centered around “Return to Me,” a movie brimming with humor and heart.   This episode is also available on the Scandal Water Podcast Youtube channel!
