“EuroTrip” (2004) teen comedy. It’s a bingo card of lazy European stereotypes this episode, as Steph, Em, and Norah wade through Matt Damon’s breakup revenge fantasy. One of our hosts discovers white wine, another recedes into dark memories of 13-year-old girl-dom, and yet one more just really, really wants every character in the movie to fail. Tune in to hear Emily’s very special connection to this “Rube Goldberg of plots”, and the hosts’ fondness for “not telling Scotty things”.

“She’s All That” (1999) teen rom-com. The show is taken over by far more hilarious hosts this week, with a look at the seminal girl-transforms-herself-for-douchebag “chick-flick” by three of it’s late-90’s target demographic. Join Stephanie, Norah, and Emily as they diagnose Culkin potato face, pen “Sister Prom 2: The Musical”, and attempt to figure out what exactly Usher does at the school (is he a student or an employee?). Just don’t try telling them to ditch their glasses or smile more as the “brain on drugs” girl hears that and more from Buffy’s slow-talking husband.
In all seriousness, though, don’t ever tell a woman (or anyone, really) to “smile more”. It’s incredibly creepy and disrespectful. For real.
