In Episode 5 of “And Then They Make Out,” Carly and Sarah discuss their new favorite movie, The Rebound, a 2009 romantic comedy starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Justin Bartha. The Rebound has everything — sociopathic kids, a meet-cute in a feminist self-defense/revenge class, an inversion of the typical working man and nurturing woman pairing, and the best pickup lines since Stacey and Luca fell in age-inappropriate love in “The Baby-Sitters Club Movie.” Don’t know what that means? Educate yourself.

“And Then They Make Out” Episode 4 covers Brittany Murphy’s early-aughts romantic comedy Little Black Book, a dark indictment of what happens when sociopaths and the generally mentally ill collide. Or, you know, about one woman’s obsessive quest to break into her boyfriend’s Palm Pilot. Tune in for a rousing discussion of Murphy’s Face Acting®, reality tv garbage vs. scripted garbage, and the first documented case of Gavin Rossdale syndrome.

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.

“And Then They Make Out” is a weekly discussion 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.

Because we have a doozy for you. After putting together our Valentine’s Day themed roundup of movie depictions of career gals who don’t deserve love (that is, until the right man comes along to teach them a thing or two), we thought it might be fun to have a weekly discussion of the way that 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. (We also thought it would be enjoyable to make fun of a new romantic comedy every week.)
