    102 Stop Fidgeting & Smile

    Our Agents did a double mission for this episode going to the Pretty Woman Musical and rewatching the Pretty Woman movie. They begin discussing how a 1990 romcom starring a sex worker held up much better than you might expect and they embrace being Julia Roberts stans. Then they discuss how the musical is good fan service and whether it can hold up to the source material. Put on your tallest boots and shortest skirt and join us!

    9.5 Pretty Woman

    Not listening to this is a big mistake—huge. Dan Moren and Lex Friedman sit down to watch Julia Roberts’s star-making turn in 1990’s Pretty Woman. Hot topics include surprising agency, corporate raiders with a heart of gold, and Jason Alexander’s affinity for playing jerks.

    Programming Note: In addition to this capsule episode, which contains our discussion before and after the film, members can watch along with Lex and Dan in a full-length commentary track, available in the members-only First Class feed. If you’re not already a member, why not sign up? And if you are, now’s a great time to update your membership allocations and maybe throw a little support in the direction of Not Playing. Thanks!

    64 "Pretty Woman" with Regie Rigby

    Let’s be honest; it’s not every day you hear a middle-aged cis/het man tell you “Pretty Woman” is his favourite movie ever. Meet Regie Rigby, who’s here to explain why he thinks Garry Marshall’s quintessential ’80s rom-com deserves another look.
