Join us as we bid farewell to summer with the 1961 film The Parent Trap. While this childhood fav captures the whimsy of romance when you’re a thirteen year-old girl, plays up the comedy with the charming 60s child actor Hayley Mills and the stunning Maureen O’Hara, and includes a getting-your-divorced-parents-back-together scheme that will be referenced till the end of time, it’s easy to forget these parents seriously split their kids up, raised them to be strangers and hid the remains of their marriage as if it all never happened.

Join us as we discuss the 1989 film Say Anything, what was to be our penultimate episode in our summer of love series, but we experienced technical difficulties and had to abruptly cut it off mid-conversation. Our apologies! You do get our discussion of our possible misreading of the boom box-over-the-head grand gesture and a nice Peter Gabriel fadeout… so, that’s something, right?
This week we also welcome special guest Rob Laronde, from Rewatchability. You may ask yourselves, was it really technical difficulties or did Rob become so offensive we had to cut it off… we said we weren’t going to talk about it…
Bumper cars, giant-ass pandas, social awkwardness, and summer nights. Join us for the latest episode as we continue our summer romance series with the 2009 film Adventureland. Greg Mottola’s follow-up to Superbad is a low-key coming-of-age story that can possibly remind us all of a time pre-Twilight mania. We were happy there.
Almost exactly 51 years after Marilyn Monroe’s death, the ladycast (completely coincidentally) discusses her 1955 collaboration with Billy Wilder, The Seven Year Itch. We try to not get depressed as we discuss Marilyn’s life, her loves… and that famous scene involving a white dress and a subway grate. Ideal for summer viewing, this film begs the question: What would you do for air conditioning?
Join us for the latest episode where we discuss Armageddon, a movie that launched one of the most crazy-popular romantic songs of the late ’90s. Friends, we dare to veer off-road and ask the question “Can romance exist in a movie that features mass destruction of major cities, rampant American patriotism– a film where the hyper-speed editing plays fast and loose with its narrative, that starts out as a story glorifying the everyday ‘I-work-on-an-oil-rig-and-make-fun-of-Greenpeace’ working man over the dummy-eggheads-at-NASA , then turns into a fantastical space adventure, and a film that, above all, includes a whole lot of Aerosmith?” The answer is… yes. Wait, no. Wait, maybe? We think there was something-something Liv Tyler and Ben Affleck, but we’re not sure. We just remember things exploding.
