Falling in Love Montage

A TV and Film podcast
 4 people rated this podcast
Every other week, Valerie and Helen will look at a different chick flick (muff film, broad comedy, lady thriller, period movie, whathaveyou) and boil it down to its themes and how those themes affect our tender feminine emotions.
Mostly we'll just go off on tangents about Sex and the City.
We'll talk about chick flick tropes, like love triangles/squares/pentagons and sisterhood. We'll explore just how strong girl power actually is and if real vampires sparkle in the sunlight, or if that's just movie magic. And we'll reveal our (Helen's) repressed sexual feelings for Hugh Grant.
We'll get a dude's opinion, and we'll even listen to it.

Sparkling wit and insight abound as Helen LaStar and Valerie Jane discuss movies that fall into that most maligned of genres, the chick flick. Listening to this excellent podcast has led me to check out a bunch of films much sooner than I would have otherwise.
I love listening to Falling in Love Montage - it's refreshing and fun, and I love hearing the perspectives of Helen and Valerie when it comes to rom coms and other similar movies - both ones I've seen and ones I haven't. They both bring great energy and viewpoints, and I definitely recommend you listen to it!
Bias note: I've been a guest on three episodes and help to moderate the Facebook group for the show. But with that said, I was a fan before I was any of that, and it's always a pleasure to listen to Helen and Valerie breaking down both foundational chick flicks and newer entries to the genre. They aren't blind to the limitations of the label, but they also strike a great balance between dissecting the more problematic elements of the genre and still enjoying the cheese, romance, and bonkers moments alike.
