            Thank you! Are crossword constructors TMBG fans?? I had no idea... 😇

            . Also learned some new facts from the other clues. Well made.
            • Sommersmith constructor · about 1 year ago
              It's always fun when I can slip in interesting info without affecting the difficulty of the puzzle. Thanks for solving!

                I could hear Danny DaVito (L.A. Confidential) in my ear, and wanted ONTHEQT so bad.
                Really enjoyed it --- and two revealers!

                  My wife solved this one with her co-workers and she said there was a sharp generational divide on that entry :)
                  Glad you enjoyed the puzzle!

                  I got stuck on Harold's partner - couldn't figure out how Harold and Maude could be considered a stoner movie. 🙃

                    Ha! Someone needs to make a Schrödinger puzzle where KUMAR
                    28DHarold's partner in a stoner-film twosome[-----]
                    and MAUDE are both acceptable answers!
                  • FrankieHeck 🤓3:15 · about 1 year ago
                    Loved the puzzle! (And also love TMBG!)
                  • Michele G 6:04 · about 1 year ago
                    Very fun puzzle. I liked how you worked the two theme into so many clues (e.g. EMU
                    36ATwo-meter-tall bird[---]
                    ). And the clue for IGLOO
                    3DHome with hard water?[-----]
                    made me smile.
                    • Sommersmith constructor · about 1 year ago
                      Thank you! There weren't nearly as many theme references in the clues originally, so I'm glad I took a SECONDLOOK
