Tune in to learn more about which of the three of them has major pilates baggage that was unearthed during the viewing of the film, what they would do if they were accidentally artificially inseminated by the wrong person, and who hates the “Happy Birthday” song.

This week, Sarah Devlin and Carly McElroy discuss a VERY early-2000s offering, Kate and Leopold, starring Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman (with some Liev Schreiber, Bradley Whitford and Breckin Meyer for garnish). This movie about a time-traveling duke and a modern career lady falling in love might sound a little silly, but they’re not afraid to ponder the big questions, like the ripped-from-actual-history subplot of Leopold inventing the elevator, whether or not OKCupid could benefit from a dose of chivalry/the requirement of handwritten letters, and where a violinist at a romantic rooftop dinner falls along the “private concert” vs. “private serenade” continuum.

In episode 6 of “And Then They Make Out” Carly and Sarah take on the…challenging Ashton Kutcher/Bernie Mac vehicle Guess Who, which inexplicably still airs on television despite a premise that had to have seemed bizarre and tone deaf even when the film originally premiered in 2005. Listen in as they discuss why anyone thought making a reverse remake of Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner was a good idea, the Ashton Kutcher Hair Length/Hotness scale, and the right age to give up on finding a man.

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.

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.)

…Until they learn to loosen up and have some FUN once in a while. Take a wild guess at the gender of the person who gets to teach them that lesson.
