Episode 39: The Holiday


This week we watched Wesleigh’s holiday pick: The Holiday! You have to get past 10 minutes of us talking about Jude Law’s hair, but we do eventually discuss the movie. In this episode Katie describes some ideal artwork she’d like to commission, we discuss the British royals, and Wesleigh gushes over how cute Jack Black is in this role.

Episode 10: Step Up

It's that time of the month — time for another Channing Tatum movie! Join us on a Journey Through Giggles as we watch Step Up, a pretty forgettable film we somehow were able to talk about for a whole hour. In this episode we discuss convenient character deaths, teen dance movies of the 2000s (why were there so many??), Wesleigh attempts to make a telegraph joke, and Katie describes that time she invented the sport of Chili Luge.

Episode 5: She's the Man

This week’s episode is out longest yet, and for good reason — it’s our first Channing Tatum movie! We watched the 2006 teen hit She’s the Man, the first film where Channing gets a leading role, and starring Amanda Bynes, who was much more famous than him at the time. Our discussion starts light but takes an unexpectedly serious turn into gender politics, sexual attraction, and story archetypes. Also, Katie sings us 10 different jingles!
