Media & Entertainment Podcasts

Welcome to Sleepover Cinema, where we analyze the films that created the collective unconscious of the girls and gays of the late 90s and early 2000s. Hosted by sister filmmaking duo Hannah and Audrey Leach, also known as Too Pink Pictures, Sleepover Cinema is an exploration of the movies that first inspired their love for film— classics like Aquamarine, Cheetah Girls, and Cinderella (the one with Brandy in it, obviously)— aimed at answering the question… are these movies actually good? And at the end of the day, do we really care if they are?

Sydney White

5/5/2022

Read It and Weep

4/28/2022
Kicking off our fifth season, the classic 2006 DCOM “Read It and Weep” asks the essential question: what would YOU do if your incredibly shady, slightly fictionalized diary was leaked to the public and it somehow made you, a 14 year old, famous? There’s a lot to follow in this one, and we can’t wait to go down the rabbit hole with you. Watch the video version of this episode here! Check out our merch shop here!

Titanic

3/31/2022
If you haven’t been emotionally ravaged by 1997’s “Titanic” in someone’s basement, have you really lived? Coming from two people who owned the double-VHS of this epic, trauma-laden 11-time Oscar winner, we can tell you that it was an essential part of tween life. In our special season four finale, we shed tears, share LOTS of facts, and even reflect on how “Titanic” reflects The Human Condition. Let us be corny, okay?!

Jennifer's Body ft. Joey Donatelli

3/24/2022
A movie whose misaligned marketing was nearly as lethal as its main character, 2009’s “Jennifer’s Body” has earned cult classic status for bisexuals internationally. Diablo Cody and Megan Fox are a match made in heaven, but how does this one hold up in 2022? Our bestie, deep listener of the pod, and merch designer Joey Donatelli joins us to discuss!

Barbie as Rapunzel

3/17/2022
Buried deep in air-conditioned basements across the US, there are thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of copies of 2002’s “Barbie as Rapunzel.” A movie franchise overlooked by most, we’re doing a deep dive into this very loose retelling of the classic fairy tale.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2

3/10/2022
Our favorite foursome is back! Tibby, Carmen, Bridget, and Lena are here to further stretch out their beloved pair of jeans, and our concept of what a functional friend group looks like.

Clueless

3/3/2022
The one that started it all in many ways, Amy Heckerling’s 1995 dreamscape “Clueless” is a movie we’ve both seen dozens of times, and to the great benefit of our creative spirits. Full of hot, sweet people, this movie is a gem of our featured genre, and we can’t wait to discuss it with you! Watch the video version of this episode here!

The Notebook

2/24/2022
An entry-level romance movie for the girls and gays of our generation, 2004’s “The Notebook” has everything: a Too Hot James Marsden, whitewashed depictions of the American South, and of course, a heartbreaking (manipulative?) framing device featuring the elderly!

The Swan Princess ft. Josh Isn't

2/17/2022
As one of the dustiest and deeply unvisited relics of our childhood, 1994’s The Swan Princess is one we were very eager to return to, along with deep BFF of the pod (and Hannah’s boyfriend) Josh Perelman-Hall (AKA Josh Isn’t). Bows and arrows, overly-snatched swans, and tonally inconsistent villains await! Watch the video version of this episode here! Watch our collab video with Josh here!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

2/10/2022
A surprisingly specific film to be the most successful romcom of our time, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” made us feel soooo grown up when we first saw it-- but how is it now? We discuss, and even check in with a real Greek to fact check these antics. Watch the video version of this episode here! Check out our merch shop here! Follow Sleepover Cinema on Instagram here!

Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz… Bill Murray? You already know it: this week we’re talking about 2000’s “Charlie’s Angels,” AND with our bestie Hunter Livingston!

Madeline

1/20/2022
A plucky red-headed girl orphan saves the day once again… but this time, in Paris, AND with Frances McDormand!

Cadet Kelly

1/13/2022
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 unprompted RADICALIZATION? Or is this a very subtle, tongue-in-cheek, subtext-heavy tale of lesbian pining? We don’t have the answers, but we DO have the discourse. Obvi. Watch the VIDEO VERSION of this episode HERE! Check out our merch shop here! Follow...

Thumbelina

1/6/2022
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? And WHO thought this was a good adaptation for kids? We discuss. Watch the VIDEO VERSION of this episode HERE! Check out our merch shop here!

Billboard Dad

12/30/2021
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 VERSION of this episode HERE! Check out our merch shop here! Follow Sleepover Cinema on Instagram here!

Camp Rock

12/16/2021
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 of this episode HERE!
