Beyond The Box Set
Jennifer‘s Body

Jennifer‘s Body

November 17, 2021

A perfect storm of critical backlash aimed at Diablo Cody and Megan Fox saw Jennifer's Body consigned to a shallow grave on its release in 2009. Now considered a cult classic, was the movie a victim of poor marketing and good old fashioned misogyny? 

On this week's episode, we give our honest reactions to the movie, discuss some of our favourite moments and pitch some overdue sequel ideas...

Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?

But I‘m a Cheerleader!

But I‘m a Cheerleader!

July 12, 2021

One of the best LGBTQIA+ movies of its era, But I'm A Cheerleader was a little too ahead of its time to get much box office mileage in 1999, but its cult favourite status has endured thanks to a dedicated fanbase and the adult success of many of its young stars.

On this week's podcast, we're joined by our favourite recurring guest Louise (and her very loud dog in the background - apologies!) to discuss subverting stereotypes, eye-watering colour schemes, RuPaul's strong thigh game and much more!

Little Miss Sunshine 2: On The Road Again

Little Miss Sunshine 2: On The Road Again

April 5, 2021

Little Miss Sunshine was a true word-of-mouth sensation back in 2006, winning two Oscars and making a strong case for the introduction of a 'Best Performance by an Ensemble' category. 

The film stars Abigail Breslin as an adorable 8-year old whose dreams of winning the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant take her on the road trip of a lifetime with her seriously dysfunctional family. These include her on-the-rocks parents Greg Kinnear and Toni Collette, intentionally mute brother Paul Dano and suicidal gay uncle Steve Carrell. 

On this week's episode, we react to the movie and discuss some of our favourite moments - including Alan Arkin's effortless scene-stealing, the excellent use of character pairing and of course the Steve Carrell run...

We'll also brainstorm some drinking games, check in with our listeners for their reactions and pitch some sequel ideas to get the Hoover family back on the road!

The First Wives Club 2: Don‘t Get Mad, Get Everything!

The First Wives Club 2: Don‘t Get Mad, Get Everything!

February 15, 2021

A surprise smash hit in 1996, The First Wives Club proved the pulling power of three brilliantly funny women of a certain age. Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton star as a trio of recently jilted spouses who reunite and vow vengeance on their former husbands. 

On this week's episode we break it all down - including Bette Midler's unflattering knitwear, Goldie Hawn's impressive lip work and of course, that song... We also brainstorm some drinking games, check in with our listeners for their reactions and, of course, pitch some sequel ideas!
