Join us this week as we discuss the 2012 film Ruby Sparks, as we continue the conversation on the MPDG and how this film forms a strong critique on the male gaze in contemporary fiction and romantic comedies, as well as the fantastic cast, the interesting collaboration of couples behind the making of the film, and the loneliness of writing yourself a girlfriend.

Join us for our first Very Special Episode, where we discuss the season two finale of New Girl. Late this season, we’ve seen the show delve head first into the Nick and Jess romance and straight onto the television romantic comedy high-wire. Will they be a Sam and Diane, or a Zach Morris and Kelly Kapowski?
Join us for our discussion of the 2012 film Hope Springs, where Hollywood dares to show us the reality of a 30-year marriage that has not only lost the fire, but moved into separate bedrooms. And of course, all romantic comedy lovers have been begging for more love scenes with Tommy Lee Jones in full-on curmudgeon mode, right? They’re just giving us what we want.
This week we also welcome special guest Blain Watters, from Rewatchability.
