The scoop on every ingredient in the best (and worst) romantic comedies

Latest Episodes

Hiccups and Earthquakes

Most romantic comedies don’t have action sequences. The obstacles the central characters face on their road to love are usually misunderstandings, fear, and annoying exes, not guns, bombs, and spies. Generally two people falling in love are trying to overcome hiccups, not earthquakes. Brandon Treadway from the Cinemast podcast joins me to discuss rom-com obstacles large and small in Annie Hall, That Touch of Mink, Something Borrowed, The Big Sick, and The Princess Bride. Flavor of the Week: The Mount Rushmore of Rom-Com Actors

Hiccups and Earthquakes

Lies & Disguises

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive -- and then we fall in love and have to untie the knots! Rom-com characters know a little something about lying to get ahead only to realize they compromised their morals at the exact moment they met their person. Listen in for hot takes on the best and worst forms of rom-com deception, including fake relationships, unbelievable accents, and at least one wig. We'll also take a deep dive into five deception-centric rom-coms: Much Ado About Nothing, To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Pillow Talk, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and She's the Man. Flavor of the Week: Charade

Lies & Disguises

What Makes a Meet-Cute Cute?

A meet-cute is pretty well-named. It’s the exact moment of a romantic story when the leads meet for the first time and it HAS TO BE cute. They might collide and pour coffee on each other, share an excellent conversation in an elevator, or just bicker like no one’s watching at a business meeting. The point is, if the chemistry sizzles, you know they’ll be kissing right before the credits roll. Listen in for insights into the pros and cons of meet-cutes generally, plus a deep-dive discussion into the meet-cutes of When Harry Met Sally..., Sleepless in Seattle, What's Up, Doc?, Serendipity, and 50 First Dates. It's time for some rom-com de-con! Flavor of the Week: Win a Date With Tad Hamilton! Twitter: @romcompod Email: romcompod@gmail.com Logo: Elijah Sorensen
