Little Italy (2018)

Ep. 67

We watched 2018’s – not 1986 or ’95 or 2003 – Little Italy, so you probably don’t have to.

Sophie & Mitch try to make sense of a seemingly timeless Little Italy neighbourhood in Toronto, filled with Brooklyn/Italian accents, bad hair dyes, and lazy stereotype humour. And also everyone’s suuuuper horny? It’s almost as baffling as this week’s Buzzfeed quiz.

Always Be My Maybe (2019)

Ep. 58

We’re talking about the 2019 Netflix film staring Ali Wong & Randall Park: Always Be My Maybe.

Sophie & Mitch gush about their new favourite movie, how refreshing it is for a mid-level romantic comedy that doesn’t just repeat tired tropes, and how these characters’ relationships with food reflect their inner struggles and all that good stuff.

47 – Love’s Kitchen (2011)

Valentine’s Day is coming up so we wanted something lovely; we watched Love’s Kitchen (2011) instead.

We crack open this pretty-much-made-for-TV-movie and try to figure out what is going on. Why are people eating desserts with two fingers? Why is the daughter cast 7 years older than written? Why would you name your restaurant “The Boot”?!

18 – No Reservations (2007)

We watched 2007’s No Reservations and it was not what we expected.

Journey with us through this dramatic romantic-comedy based off a German romantic drama film called Mostly Martha (2001). Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart, and Abigail Breslin star in a story about a stuck-in-her-ways chef, her new niece/daughter, and the Owen Wilson-ish guy who brings them together; also: Zeta-Jones’ sister is super dead & a child deals with the crushing realities of mortality. Clearly some things were lost in translation.
