In this slightly unhinged episode, we discuss “The Perfect Date,” the brand new Netflix original teen rom-com that drove us both to drink. Can a movie about a teenaged escort be wholesome?

In episode 3 of Rom Bombs, we take on the 2010 ensemble romantic comedy "Valentine's Day."

In our second episode of Rom-Bombs, we tackle “Playing it Cool,” the 2014 Chris Evans rom-com that nobody has heard of. Oh, how we wish we could be back in those blissfully ignorant times ourselves. Join us as we talk about how this movie is a part of rape culture, establish that yellowface was definitely not acceptable in 2014, and take a brief, bewildered detour into how the screenwriters seem to think waves work. Don’t watch this movie, folks. It’s real bad. Music: "Our Big Adventure" by...

In the inaugural episode of Rom Bombs, E and J tackle the Netflix original "The Princess Switch." Baking competitions! Fictional countries that are actually just England! Vanessa Hudgens playing two characters! Tune in as we discuss bad accents, rom-com wizards, bitchy villains, and the ethical problems with pretending to be another person.
