Hello and welcome to Along Came Poddy, the Rom Com Pod where we wade through the totally predictable, dated but delightful, absolute trash heap of 2000s Romantic Comedy!

Drive Me Crazy
This time round (due to unforeseen circumstances) we took a stumble, a stumble which saw us fall right into the lap of the late 90s as we explore the heated, teen-lust drenched, quite remarkable tale of Drive Me Crazy.
A film title literally given to coincide with the Britney track, we see former friends, aspiring lovers and forever neighbours Nicole & Chase, as they try to con each other in the lead up to the Prom to make their ex's jealous ... but you know already how this tale ends ... actually no you don't, ignore that.
Is this the first (and only) 'Pro Animal Testing' movie you'll ever watch? Can you compare innocent cheering bystanders to the Nazis? Would you watch 'Drive Me Crazy 2: StepKids In Love?
Starring Melissa Joan Hart, Adrian Grenier, Ali Larter, Susan May Pratt, Stephen Collins, Mark Webber & All of Our Friends At LollaBalloonza. Directed by Mark Shultz.
Music & Lyrics
Ever wondered how the song writing process works behind the scenes for your favourite pop stars? Well who's to say that at one point in time it perhaps went a little something like this.
This time round we check in with Hughey & Drewey as they star as the planets latest singer-songwriting double act in this delightfully charming, rather enjoyable display of how 2 people with no sexual chemistry and make sweet music together.
How exactly can you shag under a piano? Is this the lamest meet-cue in movie history? Does this feature the greatest opening to any movie ever?
Starring Hugh Grant, Drew Barrymore, Brad Garrett, Haley Bennett, Kristin Johnston, Campbell Scott & A Terribly Bewildering Sex Scene. Directed by Marc Lawrence.
He's Just Not That Into You
What happens when some of Hollywood's biggest & most beautiful actors come together for a late 2000s Valentines Day romp? Well give it a watch if you dare (and can stay awake!)
Join us for our first and potential worst ensemble piece that's like trying to cram 2 month's worth of Soap Opera storylines into a bewildering and dreary 2 hours and 9 minutes.
Why does all this talent have absolutely nothing to do? Why does incest become a running gag? Can Kris Kristofferson do The Worm?
Starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Connolly, Bradley Cooper, Ginnifer Goodwin, Scarlet Johansson, Kris Kristofferson, Justin Long & Stereotypes For Everyone You Can Think Of. Directed by Ken Kwapis.
It's that classic love story. Fat boy loves thin girl, fat boy runs away and returns 10 years later as a beautiful, misogynistic d******d vowing to bed the girl of his dreams in an act of sweet, steamy revenge!
Join us as we discuss the most 2005 we've seen yet, a movie that causes us to glance beyond the text and look inside ourselves, teenage adolescence and the fabled "Friend Zone".
Starring Ryan Reynolds, Amy Smart, Anna Farris, Chris Klein, Julie Hagerty, Christopher Marquette and the Province of Saskatchewan. Directed by Roger Kumble.
What Happens In Vegas
You know that old saying "The 10 minutes that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!"
Join Jack & Joy, 1 awful sociopath forced to be in a relationship with an all round decent human being all for the sake of a cool $3 Million (before tax obviously). How on Earth will they be civil for 6 short months if it means them both being in love and millionaires by the end of it ... ?
Starring Ashton Kutcher, Cameron Diaz, Rob Corddry, Lake Bell, Treat Williams, Jason Sudeikis, Judge Whopper & Dick Banger. Directed by Tom Vaughan.
How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
Is there any better way to debut a rom com podcast than to include Mr Rom Com himself!? Alright Alright Alright!
Join us as we dive head first into the bizarrely unromantic, barely comedic, verging on emotionally abusive 2003 box office blow out ... yeah not quite as dreamy as you remember hey!?
Starring Matthew McConaughey, Kate Hudson, Kathryn Hahn, Annie Parisse, Adam Goldberg, Thomas Lennon & Lilith from Fraiser. Directed by Donald Petrie!
