Episode 10: Can't Buy Me Love

In the tenth episode of Mandatory Happy*, we travel back in time to when Patrick Dempsey was a nerdy teen and Seth Green was so young he barely existed to discuss and explore this teenage tale of love and telescopes. Renee debunks a few myths about American teenage life, and Rae tells how her life is similar to Michael C. Hall's new show, SAFE. It's all in good fun, and you'll have the titular Beatles' song stuck in your head for a week even though we don't even mention it on the show! *We're in the double digits! Whee!

Episode 9: Sliding Doors

What happens when a film splits into two timelines, but forgets to make one or both of them matter?

All these questions answered and more on this week's episode of Mandatory Happy.

Episode 9: Sliding Doors

Episode 8: Leap Year

Leap Year holds space as the movie that made Renee want to start a podcast picking at romcoms. A film somehow both absolutely boring and completely infuriating, Rae and Renee pick at the dozens of bad tropes, the strange filmmaking choices, the Irish stereotypes, and the times they were both, individually, held hostage by the band Flogging Molly. This episode is a cornucopia of heavy sighs, swift subject changes, and dinosaur sounds.

Episode 7: 13 Going on 30

Consider this our Mark Ruffalo appreciation episode. We talk about the positive messages in the film, why it's great to watch with kids, Mark Ruffalo, women's magazines, Mark Ruffalo, why mean girls suck, Mark Ruffalo, and more!

Episode 6: Sleeping With Other People

For the first time, Renee and Rae fundamentally disagree on the film! Is Sleeping With Other People a complete disaster of a movie with a heavy undercurrent of misogyny or a look at how purity culture hurts people? Do the leads have chemistry? Do the jokes work? Rae and Renee find a couple of things to agree on, but spend the majority of the episode presenting and defending two entirely different points of view on this Allison Brie/Jason Sudeikis indie rom com.

Episode 5: Notting Hill

In Episode 5 of Mandatory Happy, Rae and Renee take on Notting Hill, the surprisingly charming English love story featuring a surprisingly tolerable Hugh Grant, a very weird take on the song "When You Say Nothing At All", and a realistic portrayal of the misogyny famous women face. Listen as Renee's life changes upon realizing Hugh Grant can be enjoyable, and Rae recounts the moment in her life quite like William Thacker's.
