188: SFFCH – Just Like Heaven [2005]

188 Just like Heaven

It seems Rich may have a strange knack. A knack for finding peculiar, yet interesting rom-coms. This week he brings the Spoiler Filled gang Just Like Heaven, one of the highest high-concepts to be applied to this formulaic filmic framework. So was the film just like heaven or just like hell for the crew this week? Tune in to find out in a discussion about: ghostly logistics, ridiculously lavish accommodations, very friendly neighbours and that somewhat perplexing ending.

160: SFFCH – Jack and Sarah

160 Jack and Sarah

It’s just Rich and Ant this week getting all broody and romantic over British ‘comedy-drama’ (don’t call it a Romantic Comedy) Jack and Sarah from 1995. Ant remembers this being a big deal when it first came out back in the Brit Rom-Com explosion of the 90’s, but no-one else seems to recall. Perhaps we will discover why in our discussion about floppy-haired posh blokes with the surname Grant, jarring spousal deaths, Judi Dench being upstaged, Ian McKellen playing drunk wonderfully and blandness blandness blandness.
