Check out our latest episode as we go back to 1981 when the genre was fresh and exciting, and Albert Brooks was telling it like it is with his second feature, Modern Romance. While Brooks holds a special place in the comedy lover’s heart, it’s the efficient storytelling and cringe-worthy realism that gets us excited to talk about this noteworthy rom-com gem. The film is a springboard for conversations about love, relationships, the nature of the romantic comedy, and also about drunk-dialing. We just want to watch the quaalude-scene on repeat – quaaludes, right? Oh 1981.
This week we also welcome special guest Matt Price, from the MAMO podcast.
