Show Notes

Happy Wine Wednesday! Lauren returns to the podcast this week to discuss the Barbie movie.  We talk character arcs and our surprise about the film being named Barbie and featuring so much Barbie . . . and Ken.  That said, there's no denying that Ryan Gosling was the perfect fit for the role.  And Margot Robbie was born to play Barbie.  it's WILD to think that anyone other than Robbie was ever considered for the role - looking at you, Amy Schumer. 

Congrats to America Ferrara and Ryan Gosling for their Oscar nominations! Of course we talk about Ferrara's big speech and whether or not it worked for us.  Her delivery of the speech was riveting, but we both wish that Gerwig had trusted her audience a little more with the film's messaging.

This movie was such a visual delight, so of course we get into favorite Barbie outfits and favorite set from the film.  I also asked Lauren to tell me who her Barbie would be and what she would wear.  We also applaud the film's inclusiveness, but would have loved a lot more LGBTQ+ representation.

Thanks so much for listening! Friendly reminder - we drink, we know things, we use adult language, and we have a great time.  Find and follow Lauren on social media here.
