THEY CAME TOGETHER: Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd CRUSH Hacky Romantic Comedy Tropes

they-came-together-banner

THEY CAME TOGETHER is a rom-com satire for the ages! Directed by David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer!), and starring Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, and everyone you’ve ever really loved, this movie is a surreal look at all the tropes that make a modern romantic comedy.

We talk about the amazing genre skewering, why this alt. comedy style works for Chris where others don’t, and poke fun at all the reviewers who say it’s “too smart for its own good.” Because it’s not. It’s just smart enough for it’s own good, you bean-bags.

Next week: GARFUNKEL AND OATES!

INSIDE OUT: Pixar’s Joyful, Sad, Complex Emotional Masterpiece (feat. Amy Poehler!)

inside-out-podcast-review

INSIDE OUT, Pixar’s best movie in years, is a coming of age story that actually focuses on the importance of understanding our own feelings! Led by (Queen) Amy Poehler, the amazing cast grounds an incredibly high concept story with plenty of laughs and moments of real emotional depth. And sadness. But with an important lesson about that sadness!

In this podcast, we talk about the amazing performances, the incredibly nuanced portrayal of an 11 year old girl’s emotional landscape, and the importance of this movie as a tool for understanding the way we feel and relate to each other. At least one of us gave this one a GOOD+! Find out who, and let us know what you thought of this new animated gem.

PARKS AND RECREATION FINALE – One last waffle, one last hug, One Last Ride – That Thing You Like #100

Parks-and-Rec-Finale

PARKS AND RECREATION just aired its series finale. There was friendship. And waffles. And hugs. And we have many feelings about it. We bid a fond, bittersweet farewell to Amy Poehler’s amazing turn as Leslie Knope, and talk about how the show’s relentless optimism and pursuit of growth made us better people.

Plus, we run down each character’s final moments, and celebrate the work of Aziz Ansari, Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Retta, Adam Scott, Jim O’Heir, Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe. God, we love them so much. Why can’t there be more? #ParksFarewell. (Oh, and also Billy Eichner and Ben Schwartz, who are human comedy weapons.)

Also, Episode 100! Wow! And we didn’t even mention it on the episode. Next week! We’ll get to it next week. Thanks for listening – we love you and we like you.
