Welcome to the latest episode, where we nurse the emotional scars handed to us from the Oscars by delving into our very first Jennifer Lopez movie, 2002’s Maid in Manhattan. We couldn’t be more divided on this movie: Alia seems to love it unquestioningly while Lisa remains sceptical. We can both agree that Jennifer Lopez was perfectly suited for this role, and the (heartbreaking) supporting cast of Miranda Richarsdon and Bob Hoskins really elevates this film to a level that its script probably never intended. Ralph Fiennes as the leading man though? Jury’s still out.

Happy Birthday to us! We turn the terrible twos this week, so we thought we’d celebrate with a special movie we’ve had in the hopper for quite a while: 1934’s It Happened One Night. It’s hard for us to hide our complete love for this movie, but really, what’s not to like? A road movie that includes an escape by sea, bus and car, Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert blow every other at-odds couple out of the water with their amazing chemistry and quick wits. This film started it all off, and has an Oscar grand slam to speak for it.
Thanks for the two years of listening, friends! You can send all presents to the PO Box provided at the end of the episode.
