A Night of Frolic (Movie Recap, Hocus Pocus)

October 5, 2022

It's officially spooky season. We are kicking off our October-fest schedule with a hilarious movie recap of the beloved 1995 film, Hocus Pocus. It's more than just a 90s movie with comedic 90s-movie logic, it's got magic, and  hags, and parents who might be snorting fairy dust at parties.

Hope you enjoy!

Witches Be Crazy (Movie Recap, Practical Magic)

Witches Be Crazy (Movie Recap, Practical Magic)

September 28, 2022

We are kicking off spooky season with one of our all time favs, the 1998 movie Practical Magic, staring Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock. We are relieved that the movie (which we adored as kids) has withstood the test of time, minus some interesting plot holes here and there. Still, there's plenty for us to laugh and wonder about. Hope you enjoy our humor and unsophisticated takes on this millennial classic.

But Mommy I Love Him (Movie Recap, The Notebook)

But Mommy I Love Him (Movie Recap, The Notebook)

September 21, 2022

For our 50th episode, we wanted to recap a movie everyone is sure to have seen OR purposefully avoided. The 2004 film adaptation of the Nicholas Spark novel The Notebook was the winner. While we have strong feelings on the author, the story itself was a jackpot for us. Red flags. Ryan Gosling. Drama. All the things we love. Naturally, hilarity ensued! Check out our banter-filled, laugh-out-loud recap of The Notebook (which, by the way is currently available on Netflix, US).

 

Dolla Dolla Bills Ya’ll (Movie Recap, Hustlers)

Dolla Dolla Bills Ya’ll (Movie Recap, Hustlers)

September 14, 2022

In this episode we recap the much-hyped about 2019 movie Hustlers, staring Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu. It's a flip-the-script on men kind of day, perhaps, because this movie follows the true events of a group of strippers who finessed and drugged their way into millions of dollars by conning thirsty men. How far is too far when it comes to seeking revenge on the patriarchy? The law says grand larceny, and who are we to argue? 

Hope you enjoy our recap!

It Starts With An F (Movie Recap, Catching Feelings)

It Starts With An F (Movie Recap, Catching Feelings)

September 7, 2022

In what might be one of our shortest episodes to date, we must warn you about this expletive filled rant. In this episode, we recap the 2017 South African Romantic Drama, Catching Feelings, which stars Kagiso Lediga and Pearl Thusi. This the story of an insanely unlikable hero who girl bossed too closed to the sun. We didn't like him one bit, but were united in the common goal the tear him to shreds. Hope you enjoy!

Beating Around The Bushiest Bush (Movie Recap, Hello Goodbye and Everything in Between)

Beating Around The Bushiest Bush (Movie Recap, Hello Goodbye and Everything in Between)

August 31, 2022

In this episode we recap the Netflix original drama Hello Goodbye and Everything In Between. This type of teen drama is proving to be our bread and butter. Gather 'round the fire, kids, your elders have a few things we'd like to discuss. Red flags we'd like to point out. And advice we don't want to be legally liable for. Join our hilarity. Hope you enjoy our movie commentary, our attempts at millennial comedy, and our utter need for an intervention.

Only A Little Crazy (Movie Recap, Not Okay)

Only A Little Crazy (Movie Recap, Not Okay)

August 24, 2022

In this episode we recap the 2022 Hulu original movie Not Okay. And...in the process I guess we prove that we are indeed not okay. Join our hilarity as we dive head first into our dark humor, contemplate the logistics of stalking, and the best ways to run from your trauma. We never said we were healthy, only entertaining. Hope you enjoy!

Pinky Promise You Won’t Do Crack (Movie Recap, Purple Hearts)

Pinky Promise You Won’t Do Crack (Movie Recap, Purple Hearts)

August 17, 2022

In this episode we recap the 2022 Netflix original movie Purple Hearts. Rose tries to redeem herself after the last episode where she failed to muster a cornel of feeling from her dark well of a soul. Courtney strategically chose this movie hoping it would hit Rose right in the feels: Marines in dress blues, sunny California, deployments, and white boys with dark shadows in their eyes...did it work? Did Rose finally feel something? You'll have to listen to get the answer.

Only Dead On The Inside (Movie Recap, Me Before You)

Only Dead On The Inside (Movie Recap, Me Before You)

August 10, 2022

If you only listen to one of our episodes, let this be the one. Our recap of the 2016 movie Me Before You will sound a lot like an endorsement for therapy. One of us reveals to be probably missing a soul. But the other isn't so innocent either, because it's no coincidence that our rowdiest, most laugh-out-loud episodes tend to be recapping darker movies. Our dark humor keeps us sane, and it's lucky we found another human to share it with. Hope you enjoy!

It’s Fine, Everything Is Fine (Movie recap, Don’t Look Up)

It’s Fine, Everything Is Fine (Movie recap, Don’t Look Up)

August 3, 2022

In this episode we recap the 2022 film Don't Look Up staring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence...not that you'd recognize them--they transformed for their roles. Particularly Mr. Dicaprio, who we have lovingly nicknamed Science Daddy for this episode. This movie was fun to recap, mostly because it fed our already anxious minds and dark-tinged views of the future.
