Pretty Woman

Sex workers, ethical billionaires and a creepy George Costanza is a recipe for romcom gold! We’re talking Pretty Woman this week, the classic Julia Roberts star-maker. Sit back, relax and listen as Allison tries to figure out how she feels about Richard Gere and Carrie investigates how the Beverly Wilshire Hotel has updated its decor. Or sit forward and be tense, we’re not here to judge. Just listen!

The Bridget Jones Series

Rants about capitalism and Mama Mia tangents? It must be Bridget Jones week. Listen as Carrie and Allison dissect the series, discover the roots of their body image issues and become f*** boy apologists along the way. Rate, review, subscribe and all that fun that makes us soooo happy!

The Wedding Planner

This week we watched the J.Lo classic, “The Wedding Planner.” Not “Maid in Manhattan,” or “The Wedding Date,” or “The Wedding Singer,” or “Wedding Crashers…” The J.Lo wedding one where two people have an emotional affair while planning a wedding.

The 40 Year Old Virgin

A rom-com from the man’s perspective! Can it hold up? Is it still a good movie even if it doesn’t? Does Seth Rogen have the most iconic glow up of all time? We discuss these questions and more in the latest episode of Hold Up! Take a listen, tell us your thoughts, rate, review, subscribe!

Head Over Heels

Freddie Prinze, Jr! Models! Murder! Is this the formula for the perfect rom-com? This week we discuss the 2001 classic Head Over Heels and debate what’s better, being single or dating a murderer. Can you guess which side of the debate we land on?

She's All That

The most remarkable supporting cast in the biz (hey, Paul Walker and Lil Kim!) help as Freddie Prinze Jr. sets out to prove what a sexist weirdo his character is. Also at some point there are pubes on pizza and Carrie and Al disagree over it. It’s a ride. Listen, rate, review, subscribe, tell your friends, tell your parents, tell people you pass on the street! Everybody should know!

Hitch

We found a rom-com Allison hasn’t seen! We miss Eva Mendes, praise Will Smith’s constant likability, and get lost in conversations about the Knowles-Lawson family dynamics and Roxane Gay. It’s a real trip. Take a listen, rate, review, subscribe and tell us what you think of Hitch!

When Harry Met Sally

Happy (day after) Oscars! We discuss the history of rom-coms and the Academy Awards, as well as one of the greats, “When Harry Met Sally.” Carrie’s dog Ailey weighs in with some thoughts, we argue about made up words, and test Carrie’s knowledge of rom-coms Oscar noms.

13 Going On 30

Comedy Jennifer Garner! A romantic Hulk! Judy Greer!! We watched 13 Going on 30 and determined whether or not it holds up! We also went on a tangent about Beyonce. This will not be our last tangent about Beyonce. Rate, review and subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and Google Play.

Love Actually

It’s Christmas time! Does Love Actually hold up to our intense scrutiny? How does this post-9/11 Christmas classic hold up? Well… love actually is all around, but only for this group of cishet white people.
