Whoo Boy! Where to begin? The Book Vs Movie podcast tackles Ira Levin's classic 1972 thriller "The Stepford Wives,"  the 1975 film adaptation which was pretty amazing and the totally stinky 2004 redo that starred Nicole Kidman. 

 

This is a freewheeling discussion about everything from feminism to 1970s fashion to the missed Martha Stewart parody from Frank Oz. 

 

Joanna Eberling moves from the dirty but "oh so alive" city to the suburbs at the urging (demand) of her lawyer husband only to find out she is going to be replaced by a robot that loves sex and laundry. 

 

Warning to the grumpy population... spoilers and personal anecdotes are littered throughout this podcast!

You may never hear the Austin Powers line "Send in the Fembots" in the same way again.

The "Margos" tackle their next episode of "Book Vs Movie" with the Nick Hornby 1995 novel "High Fidelity." The international best-selling book was turned into a hit film in 2000 with director Stephen Frears at the helm and starring John Cusack moving the action from London to Chicago. So which was better? 

Do you prefer your lead as a melancholy loner or an angry indie-brat? The Margos spoil away as they discuss the differences between the two in order to hash out with "High Fidelity" which was better--the book or the movie? (Contains many spoilers!)
