‘And Then They Make Out’ Episode 3: Maid In Manhattan (In The C.I.A. Hotel)
1:30 pm, March 13th | by Sarah Devlin
“And Then They Make Out” is a weekly discussion between Sarah Devlin and Carly McElroy of how pop culture depicts love and romance, and how romantic comedies reflect our society’s expectations for women, for better or for worse, back to us. It’s also, we hope, the perfect mid-week at-work distraction.
This week we break down the classic Jennifer Lopez vehicle Maid In Manhattan. Join us for an edifying discussion of the film that includes surprising details about the CIA’s involvement in production (this movie was Zero Dark Thirty before Zero Dark Thirty was Zero Dark Thirty), the revelation that in many ways Maid In Manhattan is a prequel to MTV’s Teen Wolf, and the role that Ralph Fiennes just couldn’t leave behind.
