Episodes of Sleepover Cinema

A plucky red-headed girl orphan saves the day once again… but this time, in Paris, AND with Frances McDormand! An extremely cute, surprisingly dark, and visually delightful gem of a film (yes, FILM!), we’re talking 1998’s live-action adaptation
One of the most inexplicable (and beloved) Disney Channel Original movies, 2002’s “Cadet Kelly” starring Hilary Duff and Christy Carlson Romano is… honestly, a strange one. Is this the story of a liberal NYC mother-and-daughter’s totally unprom
A haunting piece of Sleepover Cinema’s “collective unconscious,” 1994’s “Thumbelina” is a much-pondered gem of our canon. We have questions: Who chose Barry Manilow to compose the songs? Who decided to put Charo in this thing as a singing frog?
The Venice Beach boardwalk. Random surfer dudes. A decidedly adult-centric tale centered around the romantic exploits of an artist and his dastardly… fine art dealer? It’s 1998’s “Billboard Dad” starring Mary-Kate and Ashley.  Watch the VIDEO V
Another timeless classic from The Wonderful World of Disney, “Eloise at Christmastime” has everything we need, from the presence of Dame Julie Andrews and Christine Baranksi to its deeply respectful use of musical theatre moments. Celebrate Chr
In a post-High School Musical world, Disney Channel had a lot to live up to. Starring baby Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers, 2008’s Camp Rock was what we got, and certainly memorable, but is it the movie we deserved? Watch the VIDEO VERSION o
We’re kicking off season four of Sleepover Cinema with true classic: 2003’s What a Girl Wants starring Amanda Bynes. What DOES this girl want, though…(other than her literal daddy)? We unpack. Watch the VIDEO VERSION of this episode HERE!  Chec
Yes, we’re on our between-season break, BUT we needed to just pop in for a sec!!!  Our MERCH LINE, lovingly designed by fabulously talented Joey Donatelli, is officially live and you can check it out here! Season 4 of Sleepover Cinema starts Th
With an absolutely divine ensemble cast, 1960’s-flavored bops, and a surprisingly tender performance by one John Travolta, 2007’s Hairspray is an obvious choice for our season three finale. Abby, the host of More Than Tracy Turnblad, and our de
As the sole film (perhaps!) responsible for the movie musical renaissance of the mid 000s, 2002’s Chicago is THE overachiever of its genre and time period. Glitz, glam, and perfect casting abound.  Watch the VIDEO VERSION of this episode HERE! 
Drag queens love it for a reason! Bette Midler post-Academy Award, the tasteful direction of Kenny Ortega, and boundless levels of Halloween camp have made 1993’s “Hocus Pocus” a cult classic. We discuss this beloved movie in our first-ever LIV
Stephen Sondheim meets Tim Burton in 2007’s “Sweeney Todd,” a gothic tale of the ultimate toxic codependent relationship. The first R-rated many of us dared to see, star-studded with nearly every villain from the Harry Potter franchise, this on
If you did youth theatre in the mid-000s (and especially if you considered yourself edgy), you already know it well— 2005’s RENT. Though boldly ripped from greater cultural context in this movie version, RENT was a history-making theatrical suc
With its infamously shrill child vocals, the holy warmth of Ms. Audra McDonald, and a character canonically referred to as “daddy,” 1999’s Annie is made-for-TV perfection. Our little orphan heroine was correct when she sang the sun will come ou
We’ve still got the ingredients to make this summer sweet! We’re celebrating the end of summer with a quick trip to Lava Springs Country Club. What time is it?!??  Watch the VIDEO VERSION of this episode HERE!  Follow Sleepover Cinema on Instag
Our musical mini-season kicks off to a melodramatic start with 2004’s “The Phantom of the Opera,” a little indie movie straight from the deep pockets of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber himself. Turn your face away from the garish light of day.  Watch t
Today’s very special episode of Sleepover Cinema is a celebration of our one-year anniversary!! We talk best and worst movies upon rewatch, answer genuinely juicy listener questions, and EVEN debate whether or not we had the 90s Barbie airplane
Emma Stone was THAT GIRL for young millennials, and there’s perhaps no better example of her It-ness than 2010’s “Easy A.” In a long-awaited collab with our sisters in media and NYU matriculation, we discuss with Mo and Christina of Movies That
You know every line, whether you like it or not. It’s finally time for 2004’s “Mean Girls” to take center stage on Sleepover Cinema.  Watch the VIDEO VERSION of this episode HERE! Follow Sleepover Cinema on Instagram here! Follow Hannah and Aud
Featuring an elderly Eartha Kitt, multiple instances of vigilante justice, and what turns out to be a not-so-subtle allegory for the prison industrial complex, 2003’s Holes is like a fine wine in the world of children’s movies, and not just for
Now, we aren’t normally here for sports movies… but for 2002’s “Bend It Like Beckham,” we’ll make an exception. Distributed into the homes of thousands of girls across the US due to a stroke of marketing genius, this Actually Good piece of art
With a Mandy Moore filled with righteous Christian fury, problematic wheelchair usage, and just a sprinkling of gay nonsense, “Saved!” absolutely reeks of 2004. We were feeling Christ’s love after watching? Are we officially down with G-O-D? Fi
It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally here— 2006’s “The Devil Wears Prada.” As THE movie that introduced a generation to Meryl Streep, this movie has made an indelible mark on the world of cozy girls’ night movies (almost as much as t
2007’s “Enchanted” signaled the beginning of polarizing era of Disney content: the reign of the “self-aware” princess, and decades of material half-heartedly making fun of the tropes it ultimately only doubles down on. That being said… is there
In a Sleepover Cinema first, 2007’s “Juno” is an indie critical darling documenting the unplanned pregnancy of a precocious sixteen year old. Featuring icon Elliot Page in his breakthrough role, a dialogue style light years before its time, and
