The Hart Chicks Present… – 0002:0027 – The Baxter
It’s trope talk this week on The Hart Chicks Present as we ask ourselves so many questions about 2005’s The Baxter. While this film is our type on paper, it better get its grafting boots on. However, we’d go geode hunting in Malta with Justin Theroux and Jack Mechanic any day. We’re Doug and you’re dear hearts, and forever the twain shall meet Catch up with Dmitry @sigismundtryapkin on Instagram and TikTok #hartchickspresent #podcast #podcasting #contentcreators #ladypodsquad #TheBaxter #romcoms #RomanticComedies #RomanticComedy Articles referenced: “_The Baxter_.” In _Wikipedia_, January 6, 2021. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Baxter&oldid=998616179. _The Baxter_.

The Hart Chicks Present… – 0002:0026 – The Big Sick
We get deep into our feelings this week in part two of our Kumail couplet, where we all catch The Big Sick, based on Kumail & Emily’s IRL relationship. Jaleh explains why it’s triggering, Jessica yammers on about Ray Romano, and Honorary Hart Chick Jamie publicly apologizes for not laughing at every single one of Jess’s jokes.

The Hart Chicks Present… – 0002:0025 – The Lovebirds
It’s the beginning of an accidental triplet, and we are super duper in love with 2020’s The Lovebirds. It’s a caper, it’s a romance, it’s a comedy, it’s Kumail and Issa giving us the goods from t to b. If you like quotes about Doug and Dad, ideas for Sex & the City podcasts, and stories about not-real break-ups, then this is the episode for you. One, two, three, GO dear hearts!

Skiddly to your mailbox for those Netflix discs, because we’re taking it back to the mid-00s with a gem of a film. We’re talking Something New, but your beloved cohosts are the same as ever.

Gas up the jet and book your first class sleeping room because we’re flying to Singapore in our minds. We watched Crazy Rich Asians, and we have all the hot takes like, “Awkwafina is hilarious” and “this amount of wealth is unfathomable!” Plus, we talk about The Crown and its gateway into internet rabbitholes, bridesmaids with wet feet, and weirdly, OJ Simpson.

The Hart Chicks Present… – 0002:0022 – The Wedding Singer
Jaleh and Jessica host a podcast. WHOOPADEEDOO! It’s a quote-fest on this week’s episode, because we’re talking about The Wedding Singer, and it’s impossible not to quote along. We get intellectual about millennial 80s nostalgia before we devolve completely in classic Hart Chicks style. Now take off that Van Halen t-shirt, dear hearts, before you jinx the band and they break up.

The Hart Chicks Present… – 0002:0021 – Forgetting Sarah Marshall
It’s time to cliff-dive into our next couplet: rom-coms with male leads, starting with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, a modern classic full of one-liners and Jason Segel’s work of art. We mean the Dracula Musical, of course. Plus, we are pleased as punch to welcome Honorary Hart Chick Vince of The Future Break-Up (@futurebreakup), a guest spot years in the making.

The Mayors of Tangent Town have returned to discuss the magical realism of the modern fairy-tale, Penelope. We really get into this flick, as well as Rage Against the Machine, IMDB, and the plot of Atonement told badly. Plus, James McAvoy — need we say more?

Get your tokens, dear hearts, because we’re taking the El straight to Chicago for the April Christmas classic, While You Were Sleeping. Eliza Jo is back too, so you know we have lots of opinions about everything: Spaceballs, string cheese, and the dramaturgical impact of voiceover. No, seriously we do. Flip your coat to the reversible side and hunker down in a chunky sweater with us.

We’re taking it all the way back to the OG rom-com this week, and we’re pleased as punch to talk about what happened one night that was actually like four nights.

The Hart Chicks Present… – 0002:0016 – Sweet Home Alabama
We’re back, dear hearts, and we’re ready to dive into our first season: Rom-Coms. We had to kick it off with a shoutout to our Bluebell roots with Sweet Home Alabama. We got hot takes on the fashion of 2002, the effects of lightning on sand, and how there is no such thing as a bad Ethan Embry performance. I hope Neil Young will remember to listen in, and so should you.

Sep 24, 2020
We’ve made it, dear hearts. This is the finale, and we basically forgot it’s a glorified clip show! In between things we’ve seen 17 times, we get bits of delights, like Chris Spider-Man Hands, Jamie being bad at something, and a montage of prom dresses on 20-something ladies. We laugh, we cry, we already know who wins. Plus, the reunion show had some Blazin’ greatness, and we talk about why we love this show so damn much. Write your declarationies… speeches with us.

It’s the hashtag penultimate episode, and we get introspective and tangenty about it (we know you’re surprised). As we head toward the finish line, we get all the Love Island faves– the secret missions, the family visits, and the final dates. We take one more quick trip to Montanastan while planning an IRL vacation to The Cotswolds, we sing some yacht rock but not So Solid Crew, and we bid farewell to one last couple. Quit rappin – no G – with us, dear hearts.

We’re closing in on the end of villa camp, and we’re happy, sad, and confused about it. There’s a double dumping, there’s screaming children, and the villa brings their special kind of drama. Plus, we finally make the Real World Boston connection you’ve been waiting for. Rock down to Jamie Avenue and get deep with us, dear hearts. We’ll take it higher.

The Hart Chicks Present… – 0001:0012 – 100% Hotter
Make sure you stay hydrated this week, because everyone in the villa is getting a workout if you know what I mean and I THINK YOU DO. Plus, Mike continues to be hotter than before but not hotter than Jamie (who’s good at EVERYTHING). Theo forgets that when you stir the pot then you gotta keep stirring. We see the two faces of Tyla and we’re not pleased by either of them. Plus we debate the couples we’d want to hang out with IRL and it’s not the gruesome foursome. Watch your language in front of the kids, dear hearts.

This episode is the surprise sandcastle you didn’t know you needed OR wanted, but we got it just for you, dear hearts. We get Camilla’s birthday party with belly ring, avo toast, and THE LIFT; we get the crossover episode that all Hart of Dixie Chicks fans have been clamoring for; and we bid farewell to Jonny in the most dramatic fashion. Plus, it’s the Return of The Mike (and Sam too, we guess). Have the time of your life with us this week.

It’s another dysfunctional week in our villa, and against our better judgement, we’re here for it. The Great 2017 Experiment is getting our islanders, which seems perfect for new Islander Theo to stir the pot. Other new Islander Jamie is the CK-One in our hearts, but he’s all in for Camilla (#campers). Plus, Chris & Liv be fighting, Kem & Amber be bf-gf, Rocky B shows up, and Jonny teaches us a new word! Go commando with us, dear hearts.

How do you own disorder? You know that means we’re diving into the toxicity of our villa, of our villa. We get the aftermath of Casa Amor which doesn’t matter because they all leave anyway, we get a poll dance, and we both feel very, very old. Plus, we get the most honest & compelling conversation in Love Island history. Play for Team Dear Hearts with us, bubs.

The Hart Chicks Present… – 0001:0008 – Wolfman Says Goodbye
We are full-on Casa Amor, and already the new islanders are causing drama. Well, the ones whose names we can remember, anyway. There are sexy challenges, bandanas, fed ponies, and a shocking exit. Just kidding, it’s the title of the episode. Plus, we find out that Tool could make a great slow Love Island cover. Pack your suitcase and howl at the moon with us, dear hearts.

However, before they go, Wolfman’s got no brains, there’s more toxicity in our city, and Jonny 5 is ALIVE. Have some spag bol and garlickio with us this week.

This week, it’s games on games on games. We get the Ministry of Sand, who built a dance party of castles out of glitter. We get Wolfman figuring out if HE was played. We get 2 new islanders, and they have new games to play. Thankfully, it’s super dysfunctional here, so they’ll fit right in. It’s tres (not c’est) magnifique, dear hearts. Dance with us in a new week.

Was Mike’s haircut fresh or SUPER fresh? Do you love Jason Staythumb too? Relax on the double lilo with us in the infinity pool, dear hearts. It’s a hot one.

There’s a kissing contest, a rock in an avocado, and egotistic polar bears, all leading up to a villa pop-off. Whisper into the microphone with us, dear hearts.
