You People is a brand new Netflix Romantic Comedy directed by Kenya Barris. You People is the story of Ezra Cohen played by Jonah Hill. Ezra comes from a Jewish family, his mom Shelley played Julia Louise Dreyfus and dad Arnold played by David Duchovny very much try to set Ezra up with “a nice smart Jewish girl”. Ezra eventually meets Amira played by Lauren London, and THEY hit it off right away. The only problem. Amira comes from a very strong and proud black family, her dad Woody changed his name to Akbar, he is played by Eddie Murphy, her mom is Fatima played by Nia Long. You People is really the story of love, in the middle of a culture clash between these two families. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Hello, Hello! In this episode, we have a conversation with Producer, Director, and Writer Christin Baker. We talk about her new streaming service DIVABoxOffice.TV, her new film 'Merry & Gay,' her secrets to longevity in filmmaking, what qualifies as a Lesbian film, using screenwriting contests as a development force-multiplier, why short films aren't worthy of outside investment, practical knowledge versus academic knowledge, and the problem of Google, Bing, and other search engines conflating LGBTQ films with porn.

Most recently, Christin partnered with DIVA Media Group for the Dec. 1, 2022, relaunch of the LGBTQ+ streaming network DIVABoxOffice.tv. As CEO of the company, she will also premiere her fourth queer holiday romcom, Merry & Gay. Since the age of 13, when her family purchased their first VHS camcorder, Christin has been playing with storytelling, directing music videos and SNL parodies with neighborhood kids. In 2009, she launched her own production and digital distribution company, Tello Films, and the first streaming channel to make movies and other programming for the queer female community. TelloFilms.com was the first lesbian network to receive an Emmy nomination in 2017 for the series Secs & EXECS. In 2019, the series Riley Parra, which she produced and directed, was nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards. Under Christin's guidance Tello Films was the leader in creating original queer content as well as creating a platform for monetizing niche entertainment. Passionate about directing, Christin was awarded Best Director for her work on Maybelle at the 2016 London Raindance Film Festival. She is a member of the Producers Guild of America and the Television Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and has had the pleasure to work with such film icons such as Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troy, Star Trek), Amanda Righetti (The Mentalist), Archie Kao (CSI, Chicago Med, the Blue Power Ranger) and Janina Gavankar (Big Sky, The Morning Show).

The Executive Producer, Washington D.C.'s own Andree Harris, and her associate Pamela Edwards would often share their dating app experiences, and together came up with a storyline. The writer Robert “Blayze” Murray of New Jersey stated “Writing this story gave me nothing short of sheer pleasure. I enjoyed every moment of it.”This film is about Stephanie Bell, (played by the Iconic Recording Artist Marva King, best known for Tyler Perrys' hit stage play, Diary of a Mad Black Woman), a divorced single mother and a rigid attorney, who focus only on her son and winning tough cases. Stephanie's protégé Jalissa (played by Jeanetta Talbert) signs her up for a trial subscription to the My Soulmate dating app. Upon doing so, Stephanie becomes open to dating and the possibility of finding love. “It's been years since I've been on a film set and to be honest, I was sceptical about it, but, when Andree sent the script, I knew that I could pull this off. The cast and crew were amazing.” Says, King.Other cast members are Nakia Dillard, Derrick, (known for the Wire, Black Lightening and Wonder Years), West Barrington Artope, and Michael (known for Lola, Knockout Game and Marshmallow Mystery Tour). Brilliance Hall (known for Gehenna, Broken Trust, For My Man, the Light between Us, etc.), Noah Johnson as eh son to Stephanie, Nyah Imani Jean-Pierre, AaLeyah Pegus and many more. The Executive Producer, Andree Harris, is also a multi-award-winning self-taught screenwriter and actress who plays Cookie. “Online dating seems to be the norm these days and I really wanted a movie that was a mixture of both romance and laughter. This is my first ever Romcom film.” Say, Andree Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
Dragon on The Couch: The Dragon watched The Menu (HBO), both her and Berto thought it was a good film that becomes a clever horror movie. Next, she watched Earth II (Theatres?), a fan made movie using disaster films. She thought it was interesting and entertaining. Next, she watched Smile (Paramount), she thought it was a good horror film and enjoyed it. The Dragon watched M3gan (Theatres), and felt it was a decent movie, but is excited that horror films seem to be having a good resurgence. Next, she watched Aftersun (Rent). She was expecting not to like it as it seemed like a depressing drama, but she was surprised that she enjoyed the film. Finally she finished White Lotus (HBO), and enjoyed both seasons. Berto on the Bed: Berto started this week by watching Rocky II (Netflix), he was surprised as he remembered this movie being sillier, but he really enjoyed it. Next, he watched Jurassic World Dominion (Prime), he thought it was absolutely terrible and declared it “everything wrong with modern Hollywood”. Next, he watched Marry Me (Prime), an awful Rom Com with no Com. He thought it was hampered with what he imagines is Jennifer Lopez's “perfect” character. Finally, Berto goes to Joe Bob Corner. First he watched Angel (Shudder), which was a surprisingly good, enjoyable film, despite it being about a teenage prostitute. Then he watched Silent Night, Deadly Night 2 (Shudder), an insanely enjoyable bad horror film, filled with banter to mock. In this week's deep dive, we watched the 1978 SciFi film Starcrash, currently streaming on Amazon Prime.
This week we're watching Moonstruck. And what's this? Another Nicolas Cage movie, you say? In the words of Shirley from Community: "If I was in 70 films over 30 years and I spent each one talking at random volumes, I might accidentally win an Oscar." That didn't happen with Moonstruck, but Cher and Olympia Dukakis did take several the big awards for their performances. We don't want to give too much away if you haven't seen this movie. Let's just say the moon makes people do crazy things. You can find this movie on YouTube Premium and Amazon Prime. Podcast artwork by Anna Eggleton of Treehouse Lettering & Design.

It's the first ever Rom Com Rewind Fantasy Draft!! Here's how it works: Sarah and I are each going to draft 5 upcoming romantic comedies that SHOULD be released in 2023, we will have these romantic comedies on our 'Rom Com Fantasy Team'. When these films are released, we will take the Rotten Tomatoes critic score, audience score and that is the overall score of said film.

So... ever wondered if I'm really as weird as I seem? Here's proof for ya! While normal people were gearing up for a lovely holiday with their families, I rushed AWAY from mine to my hotel room in Irvine, California to have a chat with debut romantic comedy author, Becca Kinzer about her book, Dear Henry, Love Elizabeth. Boy, am I glad I did! Guys! This book! Listen in to find out how Becca went from writing romantic suspense to rom-com and learn why I'm pushing for a new genre--rom-com suspense! Note: links may be affiliate links that provide me with a small commission at no extra expense to you. Additionally, Becca Kinzer kindly sent me a copy of her book. That was after I ordered my own copy, though for what it's worth. :) What Better Way to Start the New Year Than a Great Rom-Com? As I said in the episode, I read the first chapter...ish of Dear Henry, Love Edith before we got on the air, and once I disconnected the call, I plopped down and finished all that the "Look Inside" on Amazon allowed. Yes, yes I did! And when I got home from my trip BACK to Irvine (yes, I'd driven home for a few days and went back...) I found a copy of the book waiting for me. Thank you, Becca! Well, last night I settled in to get through chapter four. Goodness, that makes it sound like I expected it to be a slog or something! Far from the truth, I assure you. I just meant that I only allow myself five chapters a night before I have to work, and the first chapters of a book end at the end of chapter 4 for me. *insert sniffles here* Well, let's just say that I'm working REALLY hard tonight so I can sneak in another set of five chapters before I have to go to bed. Guys! This book! If you love Bethany Turner, you're going to love this book. We've already had the meet cute (unbeknownst to the characters), we've already begun the epistolary part ("notes" that really are more like short letters), and... then there's the genius. I wondered how Becca Kinzer would handle the fact that just because two people have names that sound older doesn't mean they'll speak or act older--write older! Well, so far, it's all working like a charm. The love of older movie actors helps some, BUT... even Henry noticed that Edith actually sounds like his niece, Kat, sometimes. YES! YES YES YES! So... does it work? Yep. It sure does. I really shouldn't be reading this book. I'll just put that out there. I shouldn't. I have a ton of other books in line ahead of it, but everyone gets to have a mood read now and then, and I'm most definitely in the mood for this read! Fun characters, quirky situations, awkwardness galore, and butter pecan ice cream. It's a quadruple play in my book! And... she's working on a rom-com about two people riding a tandem bike in a race. COME ON! I'm dying for this book, too! It just won't come out until... forever! So, in the meantime, don't forget the TWO free novellas you can get if you head over to Becca Kinzer's WEBSITE and sign up for her newsletter. I did. EEEP! Just a few weeks before it releases on January 31, 2023 Dear Henry, Love Edith by Becca Kinzer He thinks she's an elderly widow. She's convinced he's a grumpy old man. Neither could be further from the truth. After a short and difficult marriage, recently widowed Edith Sherman has learned her lesson. Forget love. Forget marriage. She plans to fill her thirties with adventure. As she awaits the final paperwork for a humanitarian trip to South Africa, she accepts a short-term nursing position in a small Midwestern town. The last thing she needs is a handsome local catching her eye. How inconvenient is that? Henry Hobbes isn't exactly thrilled to have Edith, who he assumes is an elderly widow, dumped on him as a houseguest for the summer. But he'd do almost anything for his niece, who is practically like a sister to him given how close they are in age. Especially since Edith will be working nights and Henry works most days. When he and Edith keep missing each other in person, they begin exchanging notes, short messages at first, then longer letters, sharing increasingly personal parts of their lives. By the time Henry realizes his mistake?that Edith is actually the brown-eyed beauty he keeps bumping into around town?their hearts are so intertwined he hopes they never unravel. But with her departure date rapidly approaching, and Henry's roots firmly planted at home, Edith must ultimately decide if the adventure of her dreams is the one right in front of her. Reminiscent of the beloved classic You've Got Mail comes a delightful new romantic comedy about mistaken identities, second chances, and finding love in unexpected places. Like to listen on the go?

Contemplating what movie to watch this holiday week? You can't go wrong with "When Harry Met Sally," perhaps the greatest rom-com of all time. Nora Ephron, who wrote the screenplay, as well as other great movies and books, knew just how to make people laugh and cry and kvell. But mostly laugh. She was a successful director and producer too, in an industry not very hospitable to women. In this episode, Ephron shares the most important lesson she learned from her mother: that all pain is fodder for a good story. She explains why becoming a journalist was the best thing she ever did. And she tells stories from her later career in Hollywood, including the one about how the famous faked-orgasm scene in "When Harry Met Sally" came about.
