Lambcast #571 ROM-COM Weekend

by Richard Kirkham · February 19, 2021 · Uncategorized · No Comments

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! OK, we know that it’s not Valentines Day any longer, but that does not mean that you can’t keep the love going. This week on the Lambcast, we had a group of hopeless romantics share their favorite Romantic Comedies.

It turns out, that not everyone is subject to Cupid’s arrows in quite the same way. We heard about French Romance, Korean Romance, Golden Age Romance, 1980s Nostalgia Romance, and a whole bunch of films both familiar and unfamiliar. 


Howard Casner and Stephen Palmer like Foreign language films. Richard and Emily are fond of Musical Sequences.  Todd and Richard are homesick for their youth. Howard is homesick for old Hollywood and Stephen is just sick. 

Do you want your romantic comedy to charm you or make you cry? We’ve got both varieties of stories on this list. So stop by and listen. The show is long and it is late, but the power outage of Texas will not break our resolve, although many of these films will break your heart. 



Come get your fill of Cary Grant, Sandra Bullock, Meg Ryan, Hugh Grant, Drew Barrymore, Julia Roberts and Miriam Chin Wah Yeung. There are also games and prizes and an intro that echo’s the past.
