·35· Picture Perfect

It’s 1997 again so remember, if you’ve got to make a call, we brought our flip-phone. Helen and Valerie are joined by the divine and consummate Erin Gambrill of the Ladies Who Library podcast. We answer this burning question, “can you write a super bowl campaign and like a boy at the same time?”

·34· Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion

20 years ago, two impressionable young women walked into a movie theater to watch Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and they pretty much haven’t stopped talking about it since. Seeing as you might not have 20 years to listen to them talk about the film, they graciously condensed their discussion to just under 2 […]

·33· Man Up

Your FiLM podcast hosts are not completely on board with the much dated and gender awkward title of our thirty-third episode, Man Up. However, what they do like is the charming, thoughtful, and deliberate screenplay found in between the title page and FADE OUT. Tess Morris sought out to make a clever and enjoyable romantic comedy and we […]

·32· Intolerable Cruelty

Give it up for the one and (likely) only time we’ll get to discuss a Coen brother’s film on Falling in Love Montage. We like to stay flexible, and this is a very comfortable stretch for us as we, and special guest Malcolm Nygard, have a rich and uproarious conversation about Intolerable Cruelty. Are you […]

·31· Spring Clipisode

In this, our third clip episode, you’ll hear bits and pieces from Ghostbusters, Jane Eyre, Bridget Jones’s Baby, Crank, While You Were Sleeping, and Overboard.

·29· Moulin Rouge

Can you guess the name of this film solely from a peak at Helen’s note taking? 1) She’s shaking her vag-heart right at him 2) Coughing equals death 3) Was he the most masturbated about man at this time? (look that up!) Give up? Need context? Well, it’s Moulin Rouge of course!

·28· Bend it Like Beckham

I’ve pulled these two quotes that, I believe, fully color the movie, Bend it Like Beckham. “There is a history of seeing difference, in terms of culture (…) as problematic. For me, difference is celebratory.” – Gurinder Chadha (writer, director) “This movie kicks balls” – Matt LaStar (Ask A Matt)

·26· Winter Clipisode

These podcasters do more than watch movies, call actors by the wrong name, and go off on tangential rants. OR DO THEY? Outtakes, bloopers, and anecdotes about your favorite and least favorite chick flicks are just one chick-click away.
