Join us this week as we discuss the 2010 film Leap Year, starring Amy Adams and Matthew Goode for some reason. We’re happy this is not a leap year as the so-called Irish tradition of women only being able to propose to men one magical day every four years is the stupidest thing we’ve ever heard. The road trip premise and beautiful landscapes of Ireland don’t help this dud very much, but we found that whiskey helped us a lot when talking about it. While the film works like romantic comedy paint-by-numbers, could it also be the rare case where a bad rom-com is just as enjoyable? The answers to these and other important questions can be found on this week’s episode!

This week we discuss the 2010 film Jack Goes Boating, directed by the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, originating from the play by Robert Glaudini. We found this romantic comedy-drama beautifully simple and a bittersweet way to remember one of our favourite actors.
This week we celebrate one year of podcasting with the 1989 Rob Reiner/Nora Ephron film When Harry Met Sally. The film, which tops many ‘best of’ romantic comedy lists, (and also gave us our namesake thanks to the very famous diner scene), sparks a spirited discussion on the age-old friendship/relationship debate, homage vs. imitation, truths about love that transcend time period and why secondary characters in romantic comedies might be more interesting than the leads. We don’t all love Billy Crystal (definitely not as much as Jenna), or any of Meg Ryan’s hairdos, but we can’t deny that this movie is a classic.
Here’s to another year of podcasts and faking orgasms!
Join us for the last episode of our first year of podcasting! We chose this very special time to talk about the 2008 Kevin Smith film Zack and Miri Make a Porno, for some reason. Get ready for an in-depth discussion on a film that is not as bad as you expected it to be. With a classic romantic comedy premise of friends realizing their unrequited love, the spin of ‘they make a porno!’ doesn’t have quite enough bang to refresh the genre, (see what we did there), but does include some very funny performances. We didn’t love it, we didn’t hate it. We just want more Craig Robinson dancing please.
