What She's Having: GROSSE POINTE BLANK

What She’s Having: GROSSE POINTE BLANK

This week we discuss 1997’s Grosse Pointe Blank, starring John Cusack as a hit man, Dan Aykroyd as an evil hit man, and Minnie Driver as his love interest (Cusack’s not Aykroyd’s– that would be weird). We’re joined by Andrew Parker of Dork Shelf to get to the bottom of this funny, somewhat unscrupulous, action-infused romantic comedy. Oh,...
What She's Having: CLUELESS

What She’s Having: CLUELESS

Check out our latest episode as we discuss the 1995 Amy Heckerling film Clueless. Both an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, and a highschool movie at the start of the teen-movie craze of the late 90s, it’s also a pretty neat time capsule. We discuss Alicia Silverstone, the early 1800s rural English social sphere vs....
What She's Having: THE F WORD

What She’s Having: THE F WORD

Check out our latest episode as we discuss the newly released 2014 film The F Word, (or the more generic “What If” to those outside Canada). Starring Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan, and helmed by Michael Dowse, this film offers a fresh take on a pretty conventional rom-com story of woe: what if the one...
What She's Having: THE HEARTBREAK KID

What She’s Having: THE HEARTBREAK KID

Join us this week as we discuss the 1972 film The Heartbreak Kid. This isn’t your average Farrelly Brothers’ remake, but the original helmed by comedian/actor/director/writer Elaine May. The film starring Charles Grodin, (pre-grumpy Dad phase), Cybill Shepherd and Jeannie Berlin, follows a honeymoon doomed with bad decisions and packed with so much squirm-inducing, terrible...
What She's Having: BULL DURHAM

What She’s Having: BULL DURHAM

Check out our latest episode as we discuss 1988’s Bull Durham, a movie about sex and baseball, and sexy-baseball. We follow Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins and Kevin Costner through a season of the minor leagues and a summer of moving on, moving up and a lot of getting it on. We share our thoughts on...
What She's Having: ROXANNE

What She’s Having: ROXANNE

Join us this week as we discuss the 1987 film Roxanne. Starring Steve Martin and Darryl Hannah, and boasting a wonderful cast of supporting characters, (hey there Fred Willard and Damon Wayans!), this Cyrano de Bergerac retelling is as wacky as it is romantic, and often very hard to dislike – unless you don’t like...
What She's Having: THEY CAME TOGETHER

What She’s Having: THEY CAME TOGETHER

This week we watched the much anticipated 2014 film They Came Together. Packed full of silliness and absurdity, this self-reflexive parody includes an ensemble that reads like a list of your favourite comedy actors. Helmed by David Wain and written by Wain and Michael Showalter, the geniuses that brought you Wet Hot American Summer, it...
What She's Having: MODERN ROMANCE

What She’s Having: MODERN ROMANCE

Check out our latest episode as we go back to 1981 when the genre was fresh and exciting, and Albert Brooks was telling it like it is with his second feature, Modern Romance. While Brooks holds a special place in the comedy lover’s heart, it’s the efficient storytelling and cringe-worthy realism that gets us excited...
What She's Having: OBVIOUS CHILD

What She’s Having: OBVIOUS CHILD

Join us this week as we discuss the newly released 2014 film Obvious Child. Friends, we couldn’t wait to see this film and were not disappointed – in fact, we engage in the kind of gushing normally saved for the fares of Moonstruck, The Apartment, or in Alia’s case, The Housesitter. Not many of these...
What She's Having: WORKING GIRL

What She’s Having: WORKING GIRL

Check out our latest episode as we take on Working Girl, a film that packs 80s star power with the likes of Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford and Sigourney Weaver. Helmed by Mike Nichols, it shows us a little slice of 1988 America, a world where feminist politics on the big screen were surprisingly condescending, and...
What She's Having: THE OTHER WOMAN

What She’s Having: THE OTHER WOMAN

For our latest episode, we braved half-empty theatres to see 2014’s The Other Woman, starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton and some guy from Game of Thrones (aka Alia’s “second favourite Lannister”). The movie, directed by the oft-maligned (by us) Nick Cassavetes, tries its hand at a tale of female friendship where you would...
What She's Having: THE WEDDING SINGER/50 FIRST DATES/BLENDED

What She’s Having: THE WEDDING SINGER/50 FIRST DATES/BLENDED

Well friends, we’re back from hiatus to present a little thing we like to call the Sandler-Barrymore Trifecta. That’s right: we watched 1998’s The Wedding Singer, 2004’s 50 First Dates, and 2014’s Blended… and we suggest you not try this at home. With Blended as the latest release from the romantic comedy duo of Adam “Has left the building” Sandler...
