Boomerang

Eddy Murphy is a horndog, men and women are hilariously different, and Eartha Kitt and Grace Jones are divine blessings. (Heads up for some explicit language here, so if you don’t want your kids to ask you for instance what an O face is, maybe use head phones.)

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

Fake relationships, precocious meddling pre-teens, and ski-trips. It’s a classic recipe for a teen rom com, and we have a big bite and discuss the results.

Love Potion no. 9

(Content note: We discuss issues of magic and consent, but nothing too graphic. And this may be my favorite content note ever.) Sandra Bullock and Tate Donovan are simply irresistible, thanks to Madame Ruth. Yes, it’s based way too closely on the song. Or not closely enough? We wish for more cop kissing and less sorority crashing.

Sleepless in Seattle

“You don’t want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie.”

We take on one of the great classics, Nora Ephron’s Sleepless in Seattle. Is it what we remember - and does it need fixing? (And then, of course, we make it WEIRD.)
