Romcomathon

Based off their mildly successful blog of the same name, best friends and romcom aficionados Kat Jiang and Alex M. Lu review your favorite romantic comedies and ask the hard questions, like, how DOES Katherine Heigl afford that apartment on an assistant’s salary? New episodes every two weeks! Hopefully.

Episode 46: Gigli

In which Alex made Kat watch Gigli, which is maybe the worst thing she's ever done in the course of their friendship.

TW: This episode does discuss an act of self-harm that occurs as part of the storyline in the film. Though it's not discussed for long, we do refer to the incident more than once.

In which Kat and Alex long for the Emmy-award winning acting on the CW.

Also, Kat discovered after we recorded this episode that the screenwriter for the original She's All That is the same screenwriter for He's All That! It does explain how the terrible dialogue comes off. (Insert Steve Buscemi "how do you do, fellow kids" GIF here.)
